Even though the Vantage M watch by Polar offers less features than the V version, it comes with integrated heart rate measurement and offers all important functions and data you need to optimize your training. 30 hours of continuous training using the optical heart rate and GPS tracking are more than enough for long distances and sport activities lasting several hours.
Beautifully thin and weighing no more than 50 grams, the Vantage M comfortably fits around your wrist. The colour display inside the round plastic bezel is even easy to read in direct sunlight. Five stainless steel side buttons allow you to navigate the watch in any situation and even when wearing gloves. As it looks like a classic watch, the bike computer is perfectly suitable for daily use. Apart from your training times, the watch tracks your activity throughout the day and night to offer best fitness data.
On the back of the lightweight GPS watch, there are nine optical LEDs in green and red to extract heart rate data from different layers of the skin. Four additional sensors detect when there’s good skin contact for taking the heart rate readings. Thanks to this modern sensor fusion technology, your heart rate gets tracked accurately even in the most demanding training conditions. Therefore, the multisport watch is perfect for ambitious athletes who also do interval training to reach their full potential.
The watch can be used for running, cycling or swimming. Besides, you can choose from 130 different sports profiles and combinations, allowing you to track complete triathlon races. Altitude is measured based on your GPS data. During indoor activities where no GPS signal is available, the Polar Vantage M measures your speed and distance with the accelerometer on your wrist. Bluetooth Smart (BLE) allows you to connect external sensors for power measurement in cycling or running power measurement, analyse the recorded data in the free Polar Flow App and define training targets. With extensive smart coaching and analysis tools, the Polar Flow software will help you achieve all your training goals and allows you to share your success with the Polar Flow Community.

· Wrist-based heart rate measurement: accurate, optical, wrist-based heart rate measurement, even in toughest conditions
· Running cadence from the wrist: An accelerometer in the wrist unit monitors your cadence and helps you improve your running efficiency
· Speed and distance from the wrist: The built-in accelerometer measures your speed and distance from the movement of your wrist when running indoors or when there’s no GPS signal available (only when running sensor and GPS are inactive)
· Heart rate: Heart rate can be expressed as the absolute number of beats per minute (bpm), as percentage (%) or as a percentage of your maximum heart rate (% HRmax)
· Heart Rate zones: The default heart rate zones are divided into five intensity zones so that you can always see in which zone you are, e.g. to improve endurance
· Training Load Pro: Quantify the strain of your training session and see how your training strains the different parts of your body. You get a numerical value, verbal feedback and a visual bullet scale for each training load.
· Cardio Load: Your Cardio Load value tells you how much strain your training session put on your cardiovascular system. It is calculated as training impulse (TRIMP) after every workout from your heart rate data.
· Muscle Load: Muscle Load tells you how much your muscles were strained during high-intensity training sessions such as short intervals, sprints and hill sessions. Muscle Load is calculated from your power data, so you only get a Muscle Load value for your running workouts (and cycling sessions if you’re using a cycling power meter).
· Perceived Load: Your Perceived Load is quantified with Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE). Your Perceived load levels indicate how hard a training session was compared to your session average from the past 90 days by taking into account your own subjective experience.
