When training with Polar Vantage, I am able to run not only with pace, but also with power. This makes it easier for climbs and slopes to run evenly. The Vantage V is my favorite. As a triathlete, you have everything you need. The Training Load Pro™ feature helps me measure my fatigue and adjust my exercise plan accordingly. No progress without recovery. Knowing when to set up a rest day is just as important as the training itself. I use the Polar Flow app on my phone because I find it very convenient to analyze my data while on the move, and on my laptop to analyze the training even more accurately.
