Polar RCX5 Run Package Giveaway

There are many things in the world where one usually sits firmly in either one camp or another.  For example, a few of life’s great dividers:

Boxers or briefs
Hot dogs or hamburgers
Bow tie or straight tie
Coke or Pepsi
Mac or PC
Paper or Plastic
White bread or wheat bread

And for you folks hanging out around these parts, there’s probably the most famous of all:

…Garmin or Polar

While the great majority of giveaways to date here have been Garmin focused, I’m going to venture over to the other side and giveaway a bit of Polar goodness…the brand new Polar RCX5:

IMG_1958

Late last week (after I had published my in depth review), Polar approached me about giving away a brand new RCX5 to y’all.  Initially they weren’t sure what I’d say, simply because I always buy my own giveaway prizes (you did know that, right?). 

But, there’s one caveat to my rule – which you may remember from the survey results back in March. I had asked whether or not you would be in favor of giveaways that were for hard to get items, in cases where the company supplied the item.  For example, the first time I did this was the Wahoo Fitness ANT+ enabled bike case, where I did a giveaway three weeks before the first units were available in the retail channel.  In the survey, you overwhelmingly wanted me to give these things away when possible.  By ‘overwhelming’ that would be 93.8% of you – or roughly twice the water temperature for the Boise 70.3 half-ironman I’m doing this weekend.

You’ll be getting the above box – literally, that specific box sitting on my turtle tank stand– which contains the Polar RCX5, an s3+ stride/footpod sensor (for measuring distance), and the Polar Wearlink Hybrid heart rate strap.  That’s the fancy strap that works with both the RCX5 as well as legacy workout equipment that can read HR.  No turtles are included, nor is the G5 GPS pod, in this giveaway.

All you’ve gotta do down below is tell me the answer to one of the following questions (not all of them):

Boxers or briefs
Hot dogs or hamburgers
Bow tie or straight tie
Coke or Pepsi
Mac or PC
Paper or Plastic
White Bread or wheat bread

Simple enough, right?

The entry period will run until Thursday June 9th, 2011 at 11:59PM Eastern Time, at which point I’ll close the entry period and randomly select a winner.  Like the all my giveaways there are no restrictions on where the goods go to – so no matter where in the world you are, I’ll send to you.  The winner will get a brand new Polar RCX5 Run Package (with HR strap and footpod).  It’ll be sent out Monday morning when I get back from Boise and you should have it a day or so later – or roughly ‘a long time’ ahead of everyone else waiting for their orders to get fulfilled.

(Note: If you’re active duty military and deployed and are unable to complete the entry method above, simply shoot me an e-mail and I’ll get ya entered in.  For those curious on how the giveaways work, here’s the deets. Thanks all!)

  23. Since I have been injured two weeks ago I find myself to eat lettuce bun burger more often that I should given the smaller calories expenditure. I still prefer wearing boxers and not wearing straight tie. Diet Pepsi is always best from glass, but if I can not get one paper cup will do. And I can do both Mac or PC – depends whether it is for work (PC) or my own stuff (Mac).

  92. Of course I have to say Mac.

  93. Hamburger or death, hot-dogs are just nasty!

  94. Mac for me. Good that Polar now works a bit more with us mac users. I actually like very much the Polar products, but Garmins GPS solution and support for 3rd party apps like trainingpeaks has untill now made the choice easy.

    And of course, boxers :-)

  95. Hamburgers made from wheat bread washed down with coke. No onions please!

  96. PC with Linux of course :)
    And Boxer or nothing under tri-suite:)
    Polar (RCX5) or Garmin (310XT) I’m still asking me ;)

  97. Sexy watch! As always I read your in depth reviews in detail, so also the one from yesterday and while I’ve always been a Garmin adept in the past I must say I liked what I read so here’s my shot:

    hamburgers
    straight tie
    Coke
    PC
    Paper

  99. Pepsi – My employer so after wifey deductions pays for my Tri.
    PC – Because my son loves Macs.
    Hot Dogs/Hamburger – none because paleo diet

  100. G

    Hmm, I think I may be contrarian:

    Boxerbriefs, veggie wrap, no tie, ginger ale, Mac at home and PC at work, plastic / paperless, rye.

  101. Boxers
    Coke
    PC
    Paper

  102. Hamburger for sure, and why not having it with a Pepsi while writing on my PC :)

    I am on the Garmin side, but I would be ready to give Polar a chance if I am lucky enough to get my hand on that watch.

  204. Mac or PC – no doubt, PC!

    I grew up with a Mac when they first came out in the early 80s and nothing frustrated me more than the fact that all the computer games were on PCs and NOT Macs…well, except Frogger, which came on the Mac. And from an IT management perspective, I much prefer PCs!

  205. Pepsi. It just tastes better.

  206. C’mon Ray, nobody’s firmly in the boxer camp!

    Tighty-whities here.

  207. Mac :):)

  208. I noticed that “commando” wasn’t an option, so I’ll have to go with wheat bread.

  209. Good old wheat bread for me.

  210. As for the options:

    Boxers
    Hot dogs
    Pepsi
    and

  214. Some of us have opted out of burger vs hotdogs in lieu of veggie burgers. Here’s one dark roast coffee vs light roast. Definitely dark roast! Red wine vs white wine, okay both are good, but I prefer red. Pinot not Merlot. And finally, micro brew vs mass produced beer….without question, micro brews!

  215. Adam OJ Wall

    Plastic all the way. No, I don’t mean the choice between Paper Bags and Plastic Bags, I mean the C21st choice of ‘paper money’ vs. CreditCard.
    To all those people who spend 5mins at the cashier going through the process of finding the correct change and/or receiving a bunch of pocket-destroying change from each transaction, plese please please consider using a credit/debit card – plus you get 1% cash back… No Brainer!

  216. Boxers (I’m Free!)

  241. Boxer Briefs
    hamburgers
    straight tie
    Pepsi (Mountain Dew)
    PC

    As for the others,

    Brief Hot dogs, Straight coke and
    Plastic Mac

    Matt.

  243. Let’s see. How about still wearing tri shorts to enjoy a veggie burger (with no tie at all) and sip a coke after a race, before coming back to use my mac to blog about the local bakery’s great italian (white) bread, which comes in its own little paper bag?

    Or maybe I should just cross my fingers and hope for the randomness to fall in my favor. Thanks for doing this!

  244. Mac I hate my pc and would give anything to trade.

  245. White bread, but only get to eat it at the end of a taper!!

  246. Boxers, not briefs – and loose running shorts, otherwise it tends to get annoying.

    Coke or Pepsi – neither: Cool, Norwegian spring water, please ;)

    PC – I have an aversion to turtle necks :)

  247. wheatbread!!

    Megan

  248. Coke or pepsi? Neither – gave up soda a long time ago.

    Boxers, without a doubt, though the occasional boxer brief is good to mix it up a little.

    I’ll have to go Mac in this case – we’ll see when Lion and Windows 8 go live though.

  249. why are you making me think so hard to enter…I am going to have to go with Coke and Mac

  250. Boxers or briefs??? I’ve started wearing Tri-shorts. My T-0 (transition from bed to swim) times have gone way down!

  251. No hesitation :
    White bread … coz’ I’m French ;)

    You know, there’s nothing better here on earth than a big slice of white bread with salted butter.

  256. Boxers or briefs: Either or, sometimes none(tri shorts…)
    Hot dogs or hamburgers: Hamburgers when they are somewhat healthy, lean beef, salad…
    Bow tie or straight tie: Straight tie
    Coke or Pepsi: The real question is, Water, chocolate milk or recovery drink?
    Mac or PC: As long as it runs linux i’m happy
    Paper or Plastic: Debit Card and paper bags
    White bread or wheat bread: Wheat

  257. Mac is the only way to go.

  258. The Computrainer forces me to keep a PC alive and happy. Other than that, it’s a slew of Macs.

  298. Hi, thanks for giving your readers a shot at winning a sweet Polar watch!

    Re: Paper or plastic- I used to utilize the free plastic bags from the grocery stores all the time, while bad for the environment the bags WERE used in the house as garbage can liners. Since I never needed all the bags I was given anyway I now use a combination of plastic bags and bring-your-own bags since learning from my coupon-clipping fanatic friend that many big chain stores will give you a quarter off your purchase for saving the environment. Do what you can, right?

  299. P

    Coke or Pepsi – Neither, Coffee!
    Mac or PC – PC

    Coke, (never really drink soda)

    PC, (although, I’ve always been a Mac fan)
    Hamburger
    Whole Wheat

    I’m a Garmin user, but I started out as a Polar user, and I’m seriously thinking about going back. Garmin Connect has really stagnated as of late.

  316. Hamburgers. For some weird reason, my stomach feels fuller when I wolf down a huge, juicy hamburger over a hot dog.

  317. coke!-especially after and open water swim!

  318. Carlo Lipizzi

    Definitely Mac

    Carlo

  319. Coke, that’s a no brainer.
    Hot dogs AND hamburger… why would I choose ?

    Don’t tell me I’m food-focused. It’s 4.30PM up here and I’m hungry :-)

    Seb

  320. Bernard Maughan

    Hey Ray,

    You should have had some tri/bike techno pairs in there, like Quarq or PowerTap and Cervelo or Trek (does that last one cause a divide in your house?).

    Briefs or boxers? depends what’s on the outside.
    Pepsi Max over Diet Coke or Zero

  321. I’ve got to go with burgers

  322. Boxers not old enough for briefs yet,
    Plus I’ll have a hamburger And coke

  323. Mac or PC running Linux. I have both.

  324. PC, I guess that proves I’m over 40 ey?

  325. Pepsi with grenadine after a long run is definitely the way to go

  326. Doing a picnic with hamburgers and Pepsi while I try to keep the ants away from my PC!

  327. PC. Apple is garbage.

  328. Paper or plastic? No! Bring your own bag. :-)

  329. Paper, always paper. The only thing plastic bags are good for is putting on a wetsuit.

  330. Once you change to Mac is hard to go back… everything has worked fine and easier for me! Garmin or Polar? Just changed from a Polar 200 GPS (watch works fine, GPS doesn’t) to a FR60 ’til the new 610 arrives! I hope it meets my expectations!

  331. Wheat bread all the way baby!

  332. Brock P

    Mac
    while drinking Pepsi

  344. Absolutely Mac!! Duh! ;)

  345. Cloth bags over paper and plastic.

  346. Mac, of course. And boxers.

  347. Coke. A thousand times Coke. Pepsi is the nectar of evil. Coke is its antithesis–and a delicious post-long ride/run beverage when accompanied with a snickers.

  348. Boxers or Briefs?..I like the freeness of bozers yet the hugging support of briefs so I do boxerbriefs!!!

  349. Jake Jendusa

  357. Boxers

  361. Hands down, Coke.

  363. Burgers for sure. Mystery meat scares me.

    Thanks for your awesome blog!

  364. but still a separate pod . . .

  365. Mac!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  366. Mac all the way!!

  367. I’ll say hamburgers over hot dogs.

    I guess liking both Polar and Garmin hints that i like boxer briefs.

  368. Anonymous

    Briefs for sure. Lee

  369. Mac of course (but only french ones means with “azerty” keyboard) =)

  370. wheat bread. people over 10 years old still like white bread?

    PC over Mac anyday. Any MS Excel geek would likely agree with me there.

  371. Coke over Pepsi any day.

  372. Since I only get the opportunity to chime in on one of these vehemently contested topics…I have to go with the one that would effect my life the most.

    Boxers…again and again.

    I could not imagine a life of briefs.

  373. how about boxers briefs? does that count? if not, straight tie. i’m not cool enough to pull off a bow tie.

  374. This comment has been removed by the author.

  375. Wheat bread. I blame my parents for early but useful indoctrination for eating habits

  376. Hamburger on wheat bread

    Happy racing all and good luck at Boise Ray!

  388. Mac, if only they would enter the bikecomputer market….an garmin edge with apple the look and feel…yes!

  389. Most of the times I prefer wheat bread. And it’s not only the bread – I also prefer wheat noodles. They just taste better. :-)

    Cheers and keep it up!

  390. Mac or PC is a battle waged daily in my home. The wife is a graphic designer so our main desktop is a Mac. I am a PC. I get really frustrated by things that don’t work the same way as I expect on her Mac. For the things I do, there isn’t any difference in speed between – only steps required to complete the process. So I don’t quite understand the fandom associated w/ Mac.

  391. I prefer to wrap a hamburger around a hotdog, or put the hotdog around the hamburger. I suppose if I have to just pick one I would say:

    hotdog

  392. Mac – doesn’t matter if I’m any better at anything but I sure am pretty to look at.

  393. mac, coke & briefs

  394. T Wright

    Wheat, always wheat bread. (oh yeah…pick me!)

  395. Paper or Plastic? I try to do my part and bring a reusable bag. If not then paper. Thanks.

    Boxers or briefs: I’m a girl, so panties of all varieties :P

    Coke or Pepsi: DIET coke

    Paper or Plastic: I’m a combo girl…Paper (or reusable bags) for the majority of things…unless it’s meat or cleaning supplies that could leak, then plastic

  440. I’m a boxers and white bread kind of guy.

  441. Donna said….

    I’ll take a hot dog and a coke, right before I strap on my new PLASTIC Polar RCX5!

  442. That will be a Mac…for sure.
    Although currently running on Ubuntu, drinking a cool glass of Coke.

    Regards, RdL

  443. I love apples (mac). Edible and otherwise.

  444. paper is the way to go — i cringe at all the plastic bags i am offered at stores. i love paper as i can reuse and recycle them easily!

  445. This comment has been removed by the author.

  446. I’m a Mac. I hope Polar plays better with Macs than Garmin. Although I do have to give them a tiny bit of credit, they are starting to get a little better.

    Call me Mrs. Green…LOL!!

  596. None of the above:

    1. Boxerbriefs (actually this one happens to be true).

    3. Ascots
    4. RC (do they still sell this?)
    5. Linux
    6. Reusable cloth bags

  615. People still wear underwear? Well, I guess if I had to wear some, I’d go with boxers.

  616. Mac or PC. No doubt PC.

    In the past I would have said coke, but my move to the north over 10 years ago has moved me over to the pepsi side.

  623. Boxers, hamburgers, PC,Coke, and wheat bread. Great blog. I am also in DC, maybe we’ll meet eacother sometime during a training run/ride.

  624. There are such things as PCs?

    Mac…of course.

  625. Mac, oh definitely Mac. Also… straight tie – bowties just look silly (although I wear neither, being of the XX variety)!!

  626. Coke and Hot Dogs!
