The key for a GPS watch is consistent accuracy, reliability and then post session metrics. The Vantage V2 manages this with integrated GPS, compass and barometric altitude sensor so you know how far and fast you have run, always. The Vantage V2 also use Running Power, another great way to monitor your training load as well as pace session from a fixed effort. The calculation is done with Polar’s proprietary algorithm, and it is based on your GPS and barometer data.

When it comes to heart rate tracking the Vantage V2 has a few different options to choose from. Polar’s Precision Prime advanced wrist-based heart rate sensor tracks heart rate from the wrist. This innovation combines optical heart rate measurement with other sensor technologies in order to rule out motion artefacts that might disturb the heart rate signal and produce unreliable readings. Alternatively, connect an external sensor such as the Polar H10 strap for unparalleled accuracy, great if you are running in cooler climate when you might be wearing the watch on the top of a sleeve.
