Polar RC3 vs RCX5 Side by Side Comparison Review

 

Our Polar RC3 vs RCX5 is a detailed compare which will hopefully help you decide between these 2 fitness sport watches. The RC3 is Polar 1st watch with an integrated GPS. While on the surface that would seem like a slam dunk for the RC3, the RCX5 can add Polar's external GPS and it also excels with additional features and functions in the heart rate tracking area.
