Fantastic fitness guide for improvement!

By VictorV

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I got this a few days ago and so far, the data is extremely accurate and reliable. Best of all the Polar products to date! Very impressive, no more guessing how fit I really am, or how good my recovery strategy is, how intense my training should be today or what my work to rest ratios are.

Fantastic watch with excellent features!

By araevg

from Cedar Falls, IA, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I love almost everything about this watch. Read on, friends . . . What I love: GPS is quick (and accurate)! Transitions between multiple sports is easy. Pairing with other sensors is a breeze. I love that it tracks daily activities (steps, sleep)--very cool! It's a data-geek's dream. Seriously, this watch gives you so much data that you can slice and dice. I have small wrists (read: chicken wrists), and I wear it 24'7". The weight and extra length on the strap took about a day to get used to, but now I don't even notice it. What I DON'T love: I can't view my daily activity unless I sync my watch and look online. This seems kind of silly, since the watch tracks the feature--why can't I view it immediately? I want to know how many steps I'm taking throughout the day without having to bother with a website. No Android support. Yes, I know this is in the works, but I wanted the feature yesterday--not months from now. The "tap" feature doesn't work. Either my watch is faulty, or it takes a REALLY hard tap. Luckily I wouldn't use it anyway, so that doesn't bother me much. Overall, a fantastic watch. I highly recommend it to both casual and professional athletes. Well played, Polar.

Excellent Tool!

By HES2

from Mobile, AL, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I waited for this product and it did not disappoint. Build is solid and it looks good enough to wear 24-7 - and I do. I train 6-12 hours weekly and I purchased V800 mid-June. There are too many features to list but they all worked for me. GPS, HRM, Polar Flow connectivity and others all add up to a serious training computer for monitoring and managing progress. Even though the social aspects of the Flow site are a bit weak, it still allows our fitness "tribe" to follow one another well enough. The fitness tracking is so strong that it more than makes up for this minor shortcoming of the system. Pairing and connectivity are easy. So far, durability is good (50% of my training is strength training so it gets banged around more than a little). Before the V800 I used a Garmin FR620. The Garmin is and excellent product but less flexible. The FR620 is more suited to runners while the V800 is more versatile - or the versatility is more easily utilized. V800 customizable fitness profiles make switching metrics between back-to-back sessions easy. Well, as I said, too much to list, so I'll stop there - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PRODUCT. I use mine daily.

The V800 is the perfect training partner, whether you are a professional triathlete or just a recreational athlete seeking better health and fitness.

Great Product Until It stopped charging

By Kyleditz22

from Pennsylvania, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I bought the v800 about 4 months ago and used it about 4-6 days a week to workout. I would run, weight lift, swim, or even kayak! Aside from working out with it I wore it 24/7 as my main watch and occasionally took showers with it on with no problems. Two days ago it was on low battery so I went to charge it. I left it on the charger for about 4 hours and when I took it off it was at the same percentage it was 4 hours prior to charging(10%). I thought at first that it could have been the outlet or that I plugged it in wrong so I charged it again and this time the screen went white. I looked at the charger port and there is a lot of corrosion around the edges. Not sure if this is the problem but it seems to be. I hope to get a watch from this because I cannot use it at all now.

Great Watch and training features

By ducatimike

from San Clemente, CA, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I bought this watch a week ago and everything has worked flawless. I sync to my IPhone app, Flow website and analyze all of my data including how my good sleep I get and all of the daily activities I have done. I love seeing the recovery time and know that I am doing my body right by keeping in check and not over stressing it. The battery life has been great so far. I sync it up in the morning and it is still at 100%. I will wear it all weekend and see how it does without charging. All in all a great watch and training piece of equipment.

Design: so so

By detlef

from Gotemba

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

From the features perspective I prefer the V800 over the V400. Having been a long time user of the S710i the V800 is a great upgrade. However, from the design perspective I find the V400 and V300 much nicer. Considering that I would get myself with the V800 a device that I would not only ware during exercise but instead all the time I heavily consider design as much as functionality. I wish the V800 would be available in the V400/V300 design. I will hang on to my S710i until the next generation V800.

Must consider the V800

By dlando

from Tega Cay, SC, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I have had many watches over the years that monitor my activities. My foray with Polar began with a CX300 of which lacked many things which I won't bore you with. I then moved to a Timex Global Trainer GPS Triathlon of which I have now used for almost 4 years. I was at an inflection point however since the USB charging cable was backordered and my GPS has been taking longer to find satellites. After much research and consideration I decided to go with the Polar V800. My decision criteria was as follows (No particular order): 1. Multi Sport Support (My sports of choice Mountain Biking, Road Biking, Running, Rowing, Cross training/Circuit training, weight lifting, walking and hiking.) 2. Customization 3. GPS with quick ability to find satellites but as well shutdown when not in use 4. Reliable Heart Rate Monitor - there are mixed results without a chest strap so I was cautious about models without. 5. Indoor and Outdoor support 6. Ability to have many workout types again with the ability to customize. 7. Reporting and ability to export to TrainingPeaks, AppleHealth and MyFitnessPal 8. Activity Monitoring 9. Ability to charge quickly and last a reasonable amount of time. 10. Reasonable form factor since most GPS watches are sooooooo big. After two weeks of use my observations are as follows: Follow the instructions while setting up but go a step further to read the manual. Most if not all negative reviews I have seen might not have been if this occurred. I can honestly say that all of my asks were met excluding the following which fall under number 7 above. Reporting is not all that great from the polar flow site but that wasn't a desire of mine. I would integrate the ability to share workouts outside of polar flow in the future though - or make it easier as some like to post their workouts to social media. This may be there but I have not found it. Integration with Apple Health is limited. I personally would like to see sleep/rest, active calories burned, distance and exercises populate. The only that syncs for me is steps from the activity monitor and heart rate. I found that to get integration with Training Peaks is simply a matter of exporting the workouts one by one which is a pain. It would be nice to be able to export date ranges. MyFitnessPal seems to work but I think its because of my having MapMyFitness installed. It also seems to only post one workout in MyFitnessPal per day. Again the data does not post to Apple Health. Net net if you are a data junky you will be forced to look at various platforms unfortunately and thats not just with Polar. Therefore, the ability to import and export data is paramount which is lacking in bulk. Over all though this is the best watch/activity monitor I have had to date. It provides quite bit of flexibility and accuracy in a reasonable size. The fact updated firmware is so easy to attain you won't have to be a rocket scientist to get the latest features and functions too. The various performance tests also help you track your growth as an athlete which is nice.Too early to say what battery life will look like long term but thus far I am very impressed with it and the watch overall. Asks to Polar: 1. Please continue to evolve polar flow the foundation is definitely there. I am hopeful you eventually with add the ability to track food etc but as well get some of the advanced reporting that one receives as part of using Training Peaks. 2. Expand your Apple Health support or publish a document on how best to integrate with it. 3. Social media share... I ask only because others do it and my friends and I challenge each-other and not everyone has a Polar. 4. Beta tester - If ever you want a beta tester please let me know.

Amazing Training Tool

By nycdistance

from Manhattan, New York, NY, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

As a competitive marathoner and fitness enthusiast the v800 is by far my favorite watch. The crisp display, customization training displays, tap features, extremely accurate GPS, and smart coaching features make training fun. With the sleek design you can wear the V800 all day as a fitness monitor and have it ready for serious workouts. This watch has so much to offer and I know Polar will continue to provide updates for the watch and Polar flow Website .

Best by far of any fitness tracker, watch!

By Roger

from New Jersey, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I love it! My first fitness wearable was the Fitbit Force. Liked it a lot, but after three months, I developed the skin irritation that others have noted. Got a full refund and tried the Polar Loop. Liked that also, especially the heart rate tracking which gives VERY interesting charts when you synch it to the computer. Still wanted a device that showed time like a watch and also did all the fitness tracking and heart rate monitoring. I am not a Triathaloner! Most of my exercise is doing competitive Ballroom dancing, and I like tracking my heart rate doing that too. The v800 does this and much more. I love the gps and altitude recording. I have used this on treks and am amazed at how accurate it is. The recording of elevation vs heart rate is very interesting. The PolarFlo website displays your exact route on a topo map or areal photo. Very cool! I have small wrists and the v800 is a bit large, but I got used to it in a day or so, and now wear it 24-7. I synch it daily on my Macbook Pro and the several minutes it is connected with its cable is enough to keep it fully charged.
