Finland’s Polar is already a leading name in sports technology, so it’s no surprise that their two latest watches are top of the line. Dubbed Vantage V and Vantage M, these multi-sport stunners offer tons of indispensable tech for the modern athlete. Furthermore, both models are the first to include Precision Prime, which integrates three sensors, nine optical channels, and a 3D accelerometer for quicker and more accurate heart rate monitoring. Be still your beating heart, indeed.
For all the elite (or aspiring elite) athletes out there, Polar’s Vantage V is the one you want. In addition to unparalleled heart rate technology, the watch hosts a 40-hour battery life, new smart coaching features, data sharing, GPS, and a full spectrum of fitness-related features. It’s also the first watch in the world to exhibit running power from the wrist, which comes delivered to the wearer by way of a highly legible number (in watts).
For the regular athletes aiming to improve their performance, consider Vantage M instead. Like the Vantage V, this one is equipped with Precision Prime for improved heart rate monitoring. It also includes features like Training Load Pro, and Polar Flow, for some next level coaching and sharing. However, the Vantage M doesn’t offer running power from the wrist, or features like Recovery Pro.
Both the Polar Vantage V and Vantage M models come in a variety of colours, and with changeable wristbands. Put simply, these are serious multi-sport watches for serious athletes. If that’s you, then accept nothing less.
