Go Wherever Your Heart Takes You With Polar Grit X Pro: Our Toughest Watch To Date

It’s time to gear up with the toughest, most durable Polar watch to date: the NEW Polar Grit X Pro.

Nature is calling, adventure is waiting, but if you’re planning to go out and face the world head-on, you need something you can trust to get you through the most demanding situations; whether it’s your partner, your judgement, or your equipment

Handle any environment with military-grade durability and sapphire glass. Trust your equipment with ultra-long battery and Precision Prime™ OHR tracking. Know where you stand with turn-by-turn guidance and built-in GPS. 

Explore the world and understand your body – realizing just how incredible they both are with Polar Grit X Pro.

Durability: Be ready for anything.

Polar Grit X Pro with Military-Grade Durability

For those who may not know, Polar was born in Finland over 40 years ago. 

There’s a word in Finnish, ‘Sisu’; it means courage, determination, perseverance. It’s the will to succeed, and to face adversity head on, not just in the moment, but to sustain that attitude for as long as it takes, never giving up, never backing down, never tiring; it accepts no excuses and looks for no exits. 

Sisu’ has no direct translation in English, but ‘GRIT’ is as close as it gets. 

Polar Grit X Pro has been engineered for extreme durability and has survived United States Military Standard, or MIL-STD-810G testing to prove it – basically, it’s tough! 

Water-resistant up to 100M, built to withstand temperatures ranging from -20°C to 50°C, and with a scratch-resistant sapphire glass lens, Grit X Pro has been designed for heavy-duty use and crafted to handle every demand to provide you with a strong, reliable, rough and rugged piece of gear that will boldly walk beside you through any situation.

TECHNOLOGY: Raw power inside.

Polar Grit X Pro with Polar Precision Prime Optical Heart Rate Technology

Having the right tools or the best equipment can get you far, but if you want to go further than you’ve ever gone before, the rest is up to you. 

You need to have the guts to try, the nerve to keep pushing, and the sense to realize your own capabilities. Knowing how your body reacts to certain situations, under various demands, in different environments is essential for exploring the world, and your limits – and your heart is the key to understanding it all. 

Polar Grit X Pro will track every beat with our world-renowned optical heart rate monitoring technology, Polar Precision Prime™ – whether you’re admiring a breathtaking view halfway through a hike, flying down a trail on a mountain bike, or tucked up in a sleeping bag dreaming about the things you’ll do tomorrow, it will automatically track your heart rate 24/7. When we say, “24/7”, we mean it literally. 

The ultra-long battery life provides you with up to 7 days of battery on a single charge so you can follow your heart – even if you’re planning to spend an entire week out there braving the elements. Human, Nature: pitted against one another – far away from the nearest power outlet, and even further than you thought you could go. 

In training mode, you’ll get up to 40 hours of battery life with full GPS and wrist-based heart rate tracking, and up to 100 hours with power-save options enabled so you can train longer and explore more. 

Your raw human instincts, plus the powerful technology that Polar has to offer; that’s a formidable partnership.

NAVIGATION: Go your own way.

Polar Grit X Pro with Advanced Navigation Tools

When the world is your playground, you need to be confident that you can go one step more and lose yourself in the thrill of adventure, always knowing exactly where you stand, where you’ve been, where you’re going, and how to find your way back

Polar Grit X Pro allows you to train and navigate with the best positioning experience anywhere in the world. The built-in GPS works with GLONASS and Galileo global navigation satellite systems, and QZSS regional navigation satellite system for East Asia and Oceania to track every step you take, wherever you take it

Assisted-GPS provides faster fixes and tells your watch the predicted positions of the satellites, making it possible to receive signals from them within seconds wherever you are, even under difficult conditions. 

If you’re going off the beaten track, you’ll probably want superior navigation technology so you can plan, customize, and map detailed routes anywhere in the world – Komoot does this better than anyone. 

You can sync your routes to your watch for real-time, Turn-by-Turn Guidance powered by komoot as you move. You’ll get your home region for free when you sign up, plus an additional free region bundle with Polar Grit X Pro, so whether you’re hiking, trail running, or mountain biking, discovering new paths has never been easier. 

And, with the NEW Route & Elevation Profiles, you’ll get calculated slope angles and see how much you’ve ascended or descended every time you climb up or come down on a route. For planned routes, you can check your current position, see how much you still have to go, and foresee the terrain that lies ahead.  

With the NEW Track Back feature, you can head deeper into the unknown, trusting you’ll always find your way back to the start via the route you came

If you want to see and do things that only a handful of people have seen or done, you have to go your own way.

OUTDOOR DASHBOARDS: Always-on, never in doubt.

Polar Grit X Pro with Always-On Outdoor Dashboards

Getting up at first light to see the sun paint the world in gold, then heading into the horizon as the sun slides slowly down the sky before darkness sets and you’re covered by a blanket of stars, huddled around the warmth of a campfire – is there any better feeling? 

With all-new, Always-On Outdoor Dashboards on Polar Grit X Pro, it’s easy to plan the perfect day with quick access to all the vital information you need right there on your wrist. 

You have dashboards for Altimeter, Compass, Coordinates, Weather, and Daylight Times so you can see your barometric altitude, see the direction you’re heading in, see your exact location, see current and forecasted weather conditions, and see the sunrise, sunset, and twilight times. 

All the gear, and no idea? Not you, not today!

TRAINING: Seize the day.

Polar Grit X Pro with Powerful training Tools

Nature is the perfect training ground. It can present the toughest challenges, involve difficult obstacles, and can be the ultimate test of strength, endurance, and determination. 

When you’re training outdoors, you’re not just exploring the world, you’re also exploring the limits of your body – Polar Grit X Pro comes with all the tools you’ll need to do that: 

Training Load Pro™ will monitor the strain your training puts on your body to let you know if you’re doing too much, too little, or just the right amount. 

Wrist-Based Running Power allows you to realize the power you generate every time your feet hit the earth; measured in watts, directly from your wrist, instantly. 

Hill Splitter™ automatically detects every uphill and downhill on your route using your speed, distance and altitude data to provide detailed insights for each ascent and descent. 

FuelWise™ is a fueling assistant that provides smart reminders to help maintain your energy and hydration levels and fuel up the right way for extra-long journeys. 

With so much to be discovered, you have to make every day count.

SLEEP & RECOVERY: Own the night.

Polar Grit X Pro with Automatic Sleep & Recovery Apps

Going up against nature is no easy feat. It’s demanding, exhausting, and takes a lot out of your body. If you want to get back out there stronger and better prepared than yesterday, recovery is key – and a good night’s rest is the foundation for you to build the next 24 hours on. 

Polar Grit X Pro comes with automatic sleep and recovery apps to help you understand the way you sleep and see how well your body is able to wind down at night so you can make the optimal choices for the day ahead. 

Sleep Plus Stages™ will automatically track the quality, duration, and time spent in each sleep stage whilst you sleep. This is your Sleep Charge. 

Nightly Recharge™ will take this data, plus the data recorded from your autonomic nervous system (ANS) overnight to compare your Sleep Charge and ANS Charge – giving you a simple score when you wake up to show you how well your body recovered during sleep. 

Rest, recuperate, recharge, and dream about your next adventure.
