Sports-centric smartwatches have become all the rage in recent years due to advances in mobile technology. The pursuit of physical fitness has never been more popular, and sports watches have become tools that are integral to tracking one’s progress in leading a healthy lifestyle.
One of the most well-known manufacturers of advanced sports watches is Polar, one of the trendsetters in the market. They created the world’s first wireless heart rate monitor, and their products are leading the way in the field of fitness trackers and sports smartwatches.
Their product line is full of functional and fashionable sports watches, five of which we have listed out here for you to choose from according to your needs.
1. VANTAGE V
If you’re looking for an all-rounder among sports watches, then the Polar Vantage V is the right one for you. It has Polar’s patented Precision Prime heart rate monitor that’s the best in the world, an Advanced Running Power feature, and both the Training Load Pro and Recovery Pro fitness trackers for the best possible results.
GPS is an important feature in sports watches, but it does drain the battery faster that any other mode on the watch. But with the Polar Vantage V, you’ll get up to 40 hours of training time, a lot longer than most sport watches!
