[I've been programming it for the last three hours and I believe the date is correct now. Apparently the chest band will also work with my elliptical without the wrist watch. I have also noticed that the microwave turns on and I can change channels up but not down on the TV when I walk into the room. This is all good news because the remote is usually laying behind the TV set! Another interesting thing is that I got to page 16 of the manual when I realized I was reading the French instructions. I thought it was talking about New Orleans - everywhere there was "bouton rouge".]
The watch gets a test run tomorrow - so I need to figure out how to clear the tests, and start, stop and lap time.
I used the uplink to install a logo and set an alarm! Really really cool. I even downloaded the development kit to build software that can transfer data to the watch - we'll see what it can do!
I also need to visit www.polarrunningcoach.com ... finally!
