The Polar watches Polar V800 is the top GPS sports watch from Polar and currently available for about 298 euros.It is aimed primarily at athletes who are interested in extensive multisport functions in a GPS sports watch. Thus, the Polar V800 is designed for sportiness, robustness and functionality.
You can already see that in the material : The housing of the V800 is made of stainless steel and aluminum, the display is “Gorilla Glass”. The display is not high-resolution with 128 by 128 pixels, but it is sufficient for the very good readability of the display.
The polar v800 is not a lightweight : At 79 g, it weighs more than many other GPS sports watches (for comparison: Polar M400 56 g, Garmin vivo active HR 48 g). Thus, one feels Polar watches V800 in comparison with other fitness watches a little more on the wrist, and it tends rather not suitable for petite persons – certainly not for permanent wear as an activity tracker.
Impressive wealth of functions
Impressive is the wealth of features that the Polar V800 has.So it can be used as an activity tracker, has a pedometer, measures (also) the distance traveled in everyday life and estimates the calorie consumption. This can be used to set daily goals that need to be met. Positive (and something that other devices do not, even if it is logical): Other sports are considered for the achievement of the daily goal. The Polar V800 also has an inactivity reminder, and it also registers sleep – however, the GPS sports watch cannot do a detailed analysis after sleep.
An absolute strength of the Polar V800 is the multisport functions in the various sports apps of the V800. In the Flow desktop app (which offers great, detailed analysis options, by the way) you can choose which apps you want to use on your watch – so the clock software is “personalized”. The swim app also supports open water swimming (unlike, for example, the Garmin vivoactive HR, which only supports swimming pool swimming). Also possible is strength training.
Great evaluation options
The heart rate measurement is possible via a chest strap, which is connected via Bluetooth Smart. A wrist pulse sensor does not feature the Polar V800. The heart rate measurement works well in the water. In addition, various sensors can be connected to the V800, eg cadence sensor, pedal sensor, and speed sensor – and, of course, a chest strap for heart rate measurement.
Of course, the Polar V800 has a GPS sensor; The signal is also found quite quickly before starting a workout. In addition, unlike the Polar M400, the Polar V800 includes a stopwatch and a barometer.
Smart Notifications :
After a firmware update, the Polar V800 can now also forward notifications from the smartphone to the clock display and display them there.
The Polar V800 is designed for athletes who want to train regularly and improve continuously at a high level. Here, the Polar V800 – in combination with a heart rate sensor chest strap and possibly other sensors – provides excellent support. The fitness watch is also very well suited for swimmers, for example – as well as for runners and cyclists, strength athletes and others. For the sole use as a fitness tracker, of course, the Polar is not usefully in question, alone because of its weight.
