Polar has also added that future updates will include Strava Live Segments, Fitness Test and more. All this is, of course subject to change. The schedule and content for each release are updated as the release time gets closer.
Vantage V and M are not just iterative upgrades on Polar’s previous sports-watches. They come with a significant revamp in design and features you won’t find on the devices they replace, the V800 and M430 respectively. The company says the watches are the most advanced in its history. The upcoming updates will certainly make them even better.
The new sports-watches are available now for pre-order on polar.com. Delivery is expected ahead of the holiday period in early-November.
