Polar has introduced a new series of sports watches. They are called Vantage M and V. The M is the lifestyle version which can be worn with any leather armband. It has however a little fewer features than the pro version V. The Vantage V is a watch that sets new standards for everyone which wants to achieve their goals in sport.
Polar Vantage new features
Polar worked for 15 years in the background to bring a new level of pulse measurement. A lot of watches have included the optical measurement on the wrist. However, with the latest polar watch, there are more sensors to ensure better precision. The technology called precision prime has for the first time also measures in different depths and only if there is contact to your skin. This then influences the battery life which is up to 40 hours for the V and 30 hours for the M version.
If you don’t live in the Netherlands where everything is flat then you have experienced the difficulties that goes with training with an exact speed. It is for example more intense to go downhill if it is a steep mountain because you have to stop with every step. This is where the new feature comes in handy. The new algorithm calculates the watts you have to produce. This is calculated from the barometer and GPS data that the watch collects. The watch then knows with the data about your body how intense the training was for your muscles and joints.
In order to improve you have to train and also recover. An equilibrium of training load and recovery is essential to get out the maximum out of your training. Polar Vantage V tells you when you need to rest or when you can go to your limit for optimal results. It uses a lot of different metrics and combines them for an advice on how to carry on with your training. You can also upload your training plan and the watch will take your goals into account too.
