Polar Vantage V2: Our BEST just got BETTER!

We are pushing the limits once again with the most formidable sportswatch in Polar’s history: the Polar Vantage V2

Every aspect of our flagship has been carefully considered and designed with one person in mind – the athlete

We did all this to optimize your performance – but as you know, there’s always room for improvement. 

With impressive NEW features, a bold NEW red color, and the exciting NEW SHIFT™ Edition (coming soon!), the pinnacle of wearable sports technology just got better! 

Polar Vantage V2Win with heart.

We’re only human: This is something else.

Polar Vantage V2 with Polar Precision Prime optical heart rate technology

No one is born a winner. We are the result of the effort we put in. 

At Polar, we used to say, ‘Knowledge is Progress’; and it’s true. We also said, ‘Blood, Sweat, and Data’ are some factors that can make the difference between winning and losing; that’s also true! 

There is, however, one crucial element missing from both of those statements; and it’s the only real thing that can determine your success…YOU! 

To be the best that you can be, you have to understand your body and work hard at improving its efficiency. There are no magic formulas, no shortcuts, and no easy ways out – but there are some things that can give you an edge. 

One of those things is the Polar Vantage V2

Our premium multisport watch will track every beat of your heart, track every step, and do it all for longer. Here’s how: 

Polar Precision Prime™ OHR Technology: with 10 LEDs emitting light in red, green, and yellow wavelengths for deeper penetration into the skin, and 4 light detectors to pick up as much light as possible returning through your blood vessels for optimal heart rate tracking

Global Navigation Satellite Systems: The stylish, lightweight aluminum unibody acts as an antenna signal booster for the built-in GPS with Assisted-GPS for faster fix times: supporting GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and QZSS satellite systems so you can train with the best positioning experience anywhere in the world. 

Ultra-Long Battery Life: you’ll get up to 40 hours of battery life with full GPS and wrist-based heart rate tracking in training mode, and up to 100 hours with power-save options enabled. In watch mode you’ll get up to 7 days of battery on a single charge for 24/7 heart rate tracking.

Some give you numbers. We give you what you need to be better.

Polar Vantage V2 with advanced Training and Recovery tools

Top athletes leave nothing to chance, and Polar is no different. 

Imagine a device that captures all the complex data from your body and then hands it to you on a plate! 

Now imagine a device that captures all the complex data from your body, transforms it into clear, useful, tangible statistics, facts, figures, and personalized guidance, and then hands it to you on a plate! 

Our technology takes your body’s data and translates it into understandable information that you can use to fine-tune your training efficiency and keep performing to the best of your ability

Polar Vantage V2 is equipped with intelligent tools for you to train smarter and recover better

Training Load Pro™ allows you to improve your performance and prevent injury by monitoring the strain your training puts on your body and giving smart reminders to let you know if you’re training too much, too little, or just enough

Recovery Pro allows you to see when your body has recovered and when you are ready for more training with personalized feedback and suggestions so you can recover like a pro. 

Energy Sources allows you to learn which nutrients were consumed during your workout, breaking them down into carbs, proteins, and fats so you can count your calories right. 

Wrist-Based Running Power allows you to measure your output in watts instantly, directly from your watch so you can realize the power you generate with every step

Leg Recovery Test allows you to see how your muscles have recovered from training with a quick and simple test so you can know when your legs are ready. 

Performance Tests allow you to evaluate your running and cycling performance and personalize your training zones for heart rate, speed, and power so you can track your progress and take your training further.

Leave the track, take the trails.

Polar Vantage V2 with NEW Outdoor training and navigation features

You need to be able to train whenever you want, wherever you want

Polar Vantage V2 now comes with NEW features for you to navigate the world around you and train anywhere you want to

Turn-by-Turn guidance powered by komoot allows you to plan and map detailed routes on the app, then sync them to your watch for real-time route guidance as you go – and when you buy Polar Vantage V2, you’ll get an additional region to explore and train in for free! 

The NEW Route & Elevation Profiles feature gives you a clear picture of the terrain you’re training on with every ascent and descent of your route displayed. The NEW Track Back function will guide you back to your starting point via the route you came

And with ALL-NEW Always-On Outdoor Dashboards, you get quick access to all the vital information you need to plan your sessions better at a glance: including Altimeter; Compass; Coordinates; Weather; and Sunlight Times.

Time to rest. Tomorrow we go again.

Polar Vantage V2 with automatic sleep and recovery apps

Rest is not something that you do just to supplement your training; it IS training! 

Rest is the part of training where your body gets a chance to reap the rewards for all the work you’ve done. This is the point at which your body repairs itself, grows, and prepares for the next session. 

Sleep Plus Stages and Nightly Recharge are the automatic sleep and recovery apps that come built-in to Polar Vantage V2

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. 

Even if you’ve had a great sleep, you’re feeling good and you’re eager to get going, it may not be the best time or day to put your body through another rigorous training session. 

With Polar’s Recovery Tests, you can monitor the real status of your body and know when you’re ready to train again: 
Orthostatic Test is an easy and reliable way to analyze how you recover from intensive, frequent exercise, and optimize your training without overworking: also taking into account mental stress, sleep, latent illness, environmental changes (temperature, altitude), and others. 

Recovery Pro uses the data from Training Load Pro™, Orthostatic Test results and your own feedback to give you a thorough understanding of your recovery status.

Polar Vantage V2 with Polar H10 - The most accurate heart rate tracking team in the game

To unlock your full potential and access the hidden data you need to see when your body is fully recovered, both Orthostatic Test and Recovery Pro require a Polar Heart Rate Chest Strap – and nothing comes close to the unbeatable accuracy of Polar H10.



Some people are afraid of it, some people thrive on it, but change is a good thing. 

You can now change your style to adapt to ANY situation – even when you’re not in the “The Zone”. 

Playtime with your kids, romantic evenings with your spouse, family parties with your relatives, downtime with friends – they all require you to shift your focus, shift gears and SHIFT™ Edition

SHIFT™ Edition is a bundle that includes the NEW SHIFT™ adapter so you can easily choose, swap, and use any 22mm wristband with your Polar Vantage V2

It also comes with 2 wristbands in the box: completely weatherproof, premium FKM (fluoroelastomer) bands that look great, feel great, and are perfect for sports; and perforated leather bands with stylish detailing for a more sophisticated look. 

For any style, any occasion, any condition – Vantage V2 SHIFT™ Edition.  

Tomorrow is another day. 

Polar Vantage V2: Win with Heart.

Imagine being able to see and understand the data your body provides, then using it to optimize every aspect of your training. 

We bring the technology; you just need to do what you do best.
