Polar – the leader in wearable sports and fitness technology for over 40 years – unveils the all-in-one Polar Vantage V2, a new lightweight premium multi-sport watch. With world-famous professional racing driver Valtteri Bottas testing out the new flagship product, Polar has created the ultimate watch, designed with precision for smart and efficient training.
The new flagship product from the famous Finnish brand picks up signals from the body and provides insight and essential data to plan better, train smarter and recover – without any guesswork. Recognizing that knowledge is progress and achieving goals is about balancing training and recovery, Polar asked Bottas to test out the product as the peak of the racing season approached, when time for personal training off the circuit becomes tight.
Equipping users with 24/7 personal metrics and wrist-based heart rate tracking so they can understand their bodies better is all about finding the perfect balance between form and function. Weighing only 52 grams, this world-class watch has a lightweight design and is complemented with premium materials to provide comfort and ultimate performance all day long, from sleeping to beating your personal bests. It also offers 40 hours of continuous training time and even up to 100 hours of power saving options.
"With this flagship watch, we are here for everyone who is serious about reaching their individual goals and wants to ensure their hard work is paying off as well”, says Tomi Saario, CEO of Polar Electro.
To make every minute count, the Polar Vantage V2 optimizes training efforts – across sports – by combining all of Polar’s sports expertise in one package and adding exciting new features which:
- personalize heart rate, speed and power (i.e. the work your muscles are doing during training) zones with the new Running and Cycling Performance tests that make it easier than ever to monitor your progress.
- optimize training with the new Leg Recovery test that can be performed without any additional sensors and complements the already widely used and appreciated features such as Training Load Pro and Recovery Pro, to help users understand how the body responds to training and when the user is ready for more.
- give you free access to the extensive yet easy-to-use Polar Flow ecosystem with tools for planning and following up on your training, activity and sleep. This now also includes the new Test Hub that gathers all your test data in one place for easy analysis and increased knowledge about your progress.
- incorporate essential smartwatch features with new music controls, weather and phone notifications.
