I love training with my Polar Vantage V. Whether I do running, cycling or swimming, I will find the right features for the training on my watch. It is also very easy to transfer the data to the Polar Flow app, where I can get additional information about the past workout. The app is very easy to understand. I also like the fact that I can change the settings of the different sports yourself with the "Sports Profiles" tab. The Polar Vantage V fits very well on the wrist and feels light. You don't sweat under the watch, which is another advantage.
My name is Nina Derron and I come from Zurich. When I was five years old, I already did my first triathlon. Together with my sisters Michelle and Julie (The Derron Sisters) I work hard to reach the top of the world in triathlon. The three of us are since the beginning of 2019 proud Ambassadors of Polar. Since I often train together with my two sisters, there are always funny moments. Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we argue, but we are always pushing each other to get better.

Talking to myself. I keep saying to myself: You can do it! You can do it! You can do it!
Proudest sporting moment:
At the Ironman Vitoria-Gasteiz in Spain in July 2019 I did a very good race and finished second. This was the first time I got the qualification for the Ironman World Cup in Hawaii. I am very proud of this race.
