When it boils down to wearable sports and fitness technology, there is one name out there that has continued to break new ground for more than 40 years: Polar. The company’s latest offering arrives in the form of the Polar Vantage M, which is an all-in-one multisport watch that will enable serious athletes to enjoy advanced performance metrics alongside a new Smart Coaching without having to break a bank. Accompanying the Polar Vantage M, Polar would be the all-new Precision Prime wrist-based heart rate sensor technology that enables an enhanced degree of accuracy, offering goal-oriented athletes a reliable, customizable running and multi-sport training device.

The Polar Vantage M works best for athletes who want nothing but to constantly improve and push the limits of their personal performance. In order to achieve this goal, the Vantage M provides the ability to customize by over 130 sports, so that athletes can focus on improvement by a specific sport category. Being lightweight in nature as a sports watch should be, it also boasts of a waterproof design that ensures optimal comfort in addition to a clear, always-on color display. If you are looking for something more rugged, you should checkout tactical watches.

Throwing in GPS tracking and an always-on heart rate monitoring feature might seem like overkill for the battery, but the Polar Vantage M is capable of delivering an impressive ultra-long and ultra-light battery of up to 30 hours of non-stop training on a single charge, now how about that?

Runners will love the Running Index that draws up a straightforward number that scores running performance, where it will provide an estimate of a runner’s Running Vo2max score based on their submaximal or typical runs automatically. It does not matter whether you are starting off on your first 5k run or training for a marathon, the running program does it all. The Polar Vantage M will retail for $279.95 and will arrive in black, white and red colors, depending on the size of its strap.
