The FitSpark and Race Pace features are going to be added to the Polar Vantage V and M sports watches with the firmware update that is scheduled for tomorrow. Additionally, Strava Live Segments are coming to Vantage V.
Polar is doing a terrific job at maintaining a consistent update schedule. Following the update in October that introduced Nightly Recharge, Sleep Plus Stages, and Serene, the next one is scheduled to go live on December 31 at 6 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
The announcement of the wearables was made in September of the previous year. The pair comes equipped with a refined heart rate monitor, sophisticated performance analytics, and intuitive coaching. The Vantage V, with its more extensive list of features, is designed for the serious exercise enthusiast, whilst the Vantage M, which is designed with cost savings in mind, has less bells and whistles.
One of the new features that is currently being implemented is called FitSpark. This is a daily training plan that offers you with suggested workouts that are matched to your recuperation, fitness level, and training history. The goal of this is to ensure that you don’t overdo it with those health and fitness New Year’s resolutions.
Those of us who have utilized the Polar Ignite will be familiar with the characteristic in question. Every day, it generates a new variety of workouts that fall into the categories of cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and performance. After that, you have the option to begin a session and either follow the individualized goals or choose to disregard the recommendation.
The next topic on the agenda is race pace. Before beginning a run, you may use this to determine the desired distance and pace for the run, and then throughout the run, you can check your wrist to see how well you are doing in comparison to your goals. This function assists runners in keeping a consistent pace and informs them of the degree to which their pace must be altered in order for them to achieve the goal that they have previously determined.
Vantage V owners are the only ones that can use the Strava Live Segments feature. It enables you to connect with Strava, as its name suggests, and then you may compete against either yourself or other people. Right on their wrist, users may view how they compare to other runners and cyclists on the stretches of their preferred road or trail that they have already completed.
Polar claims that the Vantage V and Vantage M are the most technologically advanced timepieces in the company’s history. This most recent set of improvements, which has been given the version number 5.0, includes a few helpful new features that will undoubtedly make them even better.
