A good value HR/GPS sports watch
on 20 April 2017
Does everything I'd hoped for although the screen is a little dark. Have used it for biking, running, walking and skiing. Works well on the first 3 although for a full days skiing the battery didn't last long enough and the gps and HR function disactivate after about 5 hours constant use, which I suppose isn't bad though. The screens are customisable through the polar app, you have the option of displaying 2 readings over upto 5 screens. The app works well and the watch has to be set up and synced with it. I use my iPad and Bluetooth. It's very effective. There are hundreds of sports profiles to choose from which can be customised and uploaded to the watch by the app. The HR monitor seems to be accurate as is the gps which is really useful when tracking runs or mountain biking. I've just started using the training functions within the watch rather just using it to measure what I do. I'll start letting it take control of some of my runs and let it dictate what I do based on my HR after I've set the training plans up on the app. I don't really use it to track my daily activity levels although I do wear it a lot and the inactivity reminders are useful. I don't tend to wear it a night although when I have it monitors how much sleep I get, which isn't really important to me. I did also buy some clear screen protectors for it to avoid scratching it.
