Style: Multisport watch with Heart Rate MonitorColour: Black Verified Purchase
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.

Style: Multisport watch with Heart Rate MonitorColour: Black
The watch is excellent. The heart rate monitor works well out of water. For outdoor sports/running as a watch/HR monitor combo this can't be beaten - I use it regularly for running and it is really excellent.

As a regular swimmer as well, the watch performs but less well. You have to be careful in the pool with the watch. It is strapped to your wrist so any activity such as kicksets - (particularly freestyle kick which is generally quite a continuous fluid movement) aren't monitored accurately. It doesn't seem to be able to distinguish between freestyle and butterfly either but that might be my technique! You need to make sure that the monitoring devices in the watch are given a chance to work so swim hard into the wall at the end of each set, don't coast in.

The heart rate monitor strap is not designed for regular swimming training sessions in a pool. The position of the monitor with straps just under the chest is easily dislodged by the slightest force of water, such as pushing off the side of the pool or swimming at even the slowest of paces - Polar have clearly never tested the HR monitor/strap combo on a bare chest in a training session before which is kind of a huge design omission.

The only way the monitor works is if you wear a tight bodysuit/wetsuit to keep the monitor in place or use Kinesiology rocktape to physically stick the strap to your chest. I've tried using the heart rate monitor around the arm/leg/waist but it won't work. I have to say that you can easily monitor your heart rate in other ways, such as taking your own pulse, so this is not a huge issue (but then you need to record it in someway on the side of the pool which is inconvenient).

Style: Multisport watch with Heart Rate MonitorColour: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am a runner and from time to time a mountain biker, not a swimmer or triathlete so I cannot really comment in detail on the capabilities of the V800 in these fields. I am not an elite runner by any means but a 58 year old man that runs about 40 miles a week, on a good week. So once again I can only comment on the watch from my own perspective. To get the best from this watch you would need to be a high level multi sport Iron Man. However, the V800 has masses to offer even those of us who do not need everything it has to give. Currently I use a Garmin Forerunner 910XT GPS Multisport Watch with Heart Rate Monitor , which is again a multi sport watch aimed at the serious athlete.

The watch looks great, like everyday watch rather than the usual oversized bulky sports watch.The display is clear and easy to read and there is a choice of several screens available when the watch is used in Time Mode as a normal watch.

Setting the watch up is easy to do and the watch walks you through it although for best results you need to have it connected by USB to your PC or Mac. Using the Polar website you can widely configure the watch to display multiple screens for a very wide range of sports and activities. I have mine set up for running, cycling, indoor aerobics, and non specific outdoor activities. By pressing the Start button I can scroll though to find the activity I want. Having chosen and commenced my sport I can then scroll through a further range of screens I have pre selected and configured to show heart rate (in various forms), distance, duration, altitude, pace (in various forms) and a host of other metrics with up to four on each screen.
