The Vantage V offers battery life for 40 hours of training time (with full heart rate and Global Positioning System usage) and Polar Vantage M offers 30 hours. In the past Polar has excelled in how it uses these heart rate readings and other activity stats to help shape your training, and the new Vantage watches should be no different. Running power should be a better measure of effort than pace or even heart rate, making it especially useful in races - stick to the right running power to pace your run and you might never blow up two kilometres from the end again.
Polar is taking pre-orders for the wristwear today, although you may need to brace your wallet for impact depending on what you're buying. This is exactly what I have been looking for as I prefer buttons when training, but also like the ease of a touchscreen for simple watch functions.
Polar has announced the Vantage V and Vantage M, a pair of running watches that bring running power and advanced heart rate tracking to the wrist.
Background: The three main selling points of the Vantage M are Polar Precision Time heart monitoring solution, Training Load Pro service for quantifying one's training regimes and the manner in which they affect the body, and the Polar Running Program, a highly personalized solution meant to prepare its users for specific running events. Still offering the above features and Polar Precision Prime heart monitoring, the M430 replacer instead foregoes the wrist-based Running Power feature (though wearers can still sync up a compatible third-party power meter) and focuses on providing tracking for the same 130+ sports as the Vantage V and give insights through Training Load Pro, Recovery Pro and Polar Flow. There's also a Vantage V bundle that includes the Polar H10 chest strap, which is available for £479. The battery is advertised to last up to 30 hours on the Vantage M. There's also "Polar Flow Coach", which is designed to let coaches create training calendars.
The Vantage M will be available in black, white, or red for $279.99. The company is rolling out the Vantage V and Vantage M as additions to its existing lineup.
