From the Manufacturer

Gain An Edge by Training and Recovering, Smart.

The Polar V800 encompasses all the best of Polar’s design and technology. Its training and recovery features can help any athlete reach their peak performance.

Recovery Based on 24/7 Activity

The V800 is the first triathlon training device to incorporate 24/7 activity tracking. Why is this data useful? Because your daily activities and sleep patterns can affect your recovery time. With 24/7 activity tracking data you will know your true recovery status and exactly how much time is needed to recover from your last training session. The V800 also tracks your daily total calorie burn and shows where your calories are being burned (activity, training, BMR). With this information, you can manage your calorie intake and refuel when needed.

Train Smart and Recover to Avoid Injuries

The Training and Recovery feature of the V800 shows you how each training session affects your body and when you are ready to train again. It’s based on your training load, 24/7 activity and sleep data. Every time you finish a training session, you can instantly see how tough it was on your body and what your expected recovery time is. With this data you can adjust your training plan and avoid injuries. Even if you know your body well, the V800 can confirm how you feel.

V800- The Smartest Multisport Training Device

  • Waterproof
  • Adjustable sport profiles
  • Training load and recovery
  • Swimming metrics
  • Tracks heart rate while swimming

Plan Your Training

The V800 can help you follow your carefully planned training sessions. All you need to do is import your training plans into the Polar Flow training diary and sync it to the V800. While training, the V800 will guide you to meet your targets. For example, if you’re not keeping the right pace the V800 vibrates. It will also alert you when it’s time to begin your next training phase.

Train According to Plan

V800 guides you towards your goals. It notifies with a sound or vibration when you need to slow down or to speed up. Other key training features:

-Tracks swim metrics and heart rate while swimming.

-Fully customisable sport profiles and transition time recording.

- Tracks your route, distance and speed with integrated GPS. Follow your altitude, ascent and descent with the built in barometer.

Analyse Your Progress with Polar Flow

Analyse each training session and track your progress. The V800 syncs with the Polar Flow app and web service so you can analyse every detail of your performance.

-Create training targets and sync to V800

-Get a long term view of your training load and recovery times to adjust your training plans

-Maps of your training routes with explore and relive features

-Share your favorite training sessions

Wear 24/7

Learn how daily activity affects your recovery status and find the right balance between training and rest.

By combining the training load from your workout with the small activities you do every day you will know your actual recovery time and when you're ready to train again.

Bluetooth Smart Compatible Accessories

Smart Coaching Features: V800

Polar invented the world's first heart rate monitor and pioneered the smart coaching training approach that delivers faster progress and better results. Each Polar product includes smart coaching features that listen to your heart and interpret the data for you so you can train smarter.

Running Index

Helps you improve your run technique. Your running index score is calculated automatically after every run, based on your heart rate and speed data. A higher reading indicates that you can run faster with less effort.

Training Load and Recovery

Shows you how your training affects your body and helps you compare the load of different workouts. Continuous monitoring of training load will help you recognise your personal limits and adjust your training intensity.

Orthostatic Test

Determines your current condition. Shows how your heart rate responds to training and factors such as stress and illness. By repeating the test regularly, you’ll learn what to expect with your heart rate and what can affect it.

OK, before we start, I just like to mention that although 100% objectivity is rather impossible to achieve, I like to stay as objective as I possibly can. I've had the V800 for 3 weeks, used it 6 times/week for running and strength training.

So, V800: the good, the bad and the ugly...

The Good:
- Really accurate and easy to set up. Despite what I read on review sites, it picks up GPS signal between 5-10sec. First time it took 18 sec to pick up satelites. I do not live in a built up area. Mapping is really accurate (I run trails in Great Windsor Park - where you get lots of tree coverage). Plotting the map in Polar Flow showed the running path right smack on the trail - puny little watch but impressively accurate nevertheless.
- Lots of screen configuration options. Get the info YOU want rather than what the designer thought you shoud get. This is essential for someone like me who sometimes trains by heart zone, other times by speed or distance and also does the odd time by max hear rate fartlek. You can have all that on the screen (4 data fields) or just one. Yo can have multiple data screens at the push of a button with 1 to 4 data fields in it.
- I love, love, love the recovery status. What a fantastic feature, even if you should not totally trust it. However so far I'm injury free, so it seems to work.
- activity tracking is actually quite good. How good you ask? Ok, put it this way: it picked up the fact that I woke up last night to take a p*ss. So, I found it very accurate.

I purchased the Polar `V800 as a 'unification device' to combine the functions of my Polar Loop / Fitbit, Polar FT80 and iPhone. And as such, it very nearly does exactly that, and in several ways a lot more.

First the bad:
The product still feels incomplete, Some of the displays during training are missing information.
None of the resistance programs of the FT80 are available the V800 (I *really* hope we get these soon so I can sell the FT80).
Mine arrived with a faulty HT7 HRM (luckily I had a spare).
Some of the advertised features like HR rebroadcasting are not yet working.
No integration with third party apps like MyFitnessPal etc.
The iOS app is still beta and at the time of writing does not function correctly on iOS 8 (dev 4).

Now the good:
The V800 is very well built, superb quality and remarkably light weight considering it feels like a solid lump.
Even on my lady-girl wrist the watch looks smart and not too big like some of the previous generation of GPS sports watches.
The programs that are present are very good, with some *really* nice features like the vibrating lap timer and swimming modes.
Battery life seems excellent and has only required charging once this week (which has included 8+ hours of running fitness programs).
The V800 should improve over time if Polar keep developing it (FT80 style weight training program please!!).

Overall then, four stars and could well become a five star product if Polar can make it integrate with other apps and finish the software before Apple establish the iWatch.

I bought mine from Amazon UK after a couple of nice price drops and it arrived today. I'm in my fifties and am on a crusade to lose weight and improve my fitness after some troubling news from the doctor a few months ago. I am not a competitive athlete, but I do want to measure/monitor my achievements and track progress towards my end goal. For such purpose this watch may seem like expensive overkill, but if it encourages and motivates me then it's a small price to pay for a healthy life.

So, about the watch....

It is large on the wrist, no doubt, but I am used to fairly substantial sports watches and it looks and feels fine to me, if rather techy. I shall be wearing it 24x7 so it needs to look OK throughout the day rather than just when working up a sweat. It's no dress watch, but it's staying on my wrist.

I found initial setup to be pretty easy via the online Polar Flow website, although there were some options which, if chosen, prevented the changes from being saved. I would put this down to beta troubles rather than a permanent failing. I hope I'm right.

So far today I have used it to track a 50 min walk with GPS and HRM, a 23 minute walk with GPS and no HRM and a 30 minute exercise bike session in which I was able to use both the watch and the Polar Beat Android app to record the session. Everything seems to have been logged perfectly so far and I feel confident that am measuring calorie burn as accurately as possible. This is especially important to me due to my weight loss goals. Of course, heart rate is an important metric and I have found the real time heart rate graphic in Polar Beta, together with the calorie count, to be highly motivating, to the extent that today's was by far my hardest exercise bike workout yet.
