I had a very basic Polar watch that could not tell calorie burn and a few other things that I wanted. I decided to upgrade to the Polar RS100. I am very happy with the watch - it is simple to operate when you get used to it. It also looks good. The red button allows stop start when you are exercising easily. It also has a useful glow light. I am very happy with the product. Excellent watch for the price.
