GPS Running Watch
This is Pacer.
Why complicate something so simple?
Remember when you were a kid? You ran whenever you had the chance. It was pure, innocent, unadulterated joy – the simple things always are the best.
It’s just running, but you want to look good when you pass people in the street.
You want to run. This is a running watch.
A good running watch should have all the basics to record your time as you go the distance. Pacer takes you much further than that.

You can run this town.
The new antenna design allows you to track every stride with improved accuracy wherever you run.
We focus on tech. You focus on running.
If you’re going to do this, you’re going to need the tech to help you do it right. It’s a lot to process but you can handle it.

24/7 Activity Tracking
Our bodies are designed to move, so staying active is essential for your overall health and well-being.
Polar watches promote active lifestyles by giving you a daily activity goal based on your personal data and activity level setting, then automatically tracking your activity throughout the day.

Sleep Plus Stages™
Getting enough good-quality sleep is vital for your health and well-being. When you sleep, your body cycles through three sleep stages: light, deep, and REM.
Sleep Plus Stages™ automatically tracks the amount and quality of your sleep (Sleep Score), and lets you know how long you spent in each stage during the night.
Sleep tracking can help you understand your sleep behaviour over the long-term, and also identify the factors in your day that may have a negative impact on your sleep.
- Automatically track the quality of your sleep
- See your Sleep Score at a glance
- Learn how factors affect your sleep behaviour
Nightly Recharge™ is an automatic overnight recovery measurement that shows you how well you recover from the demands of your day. It helps you make the optimal choices in your everyday life to maintain overall well-being and reach your training or fitness goals.
Your Nightly Recharge™ status is based on two components: how you slept (Sleep Charge), and how well your autonomic nervous system calmed down during the early hours of your sleep (ANS Charge).
- Automatic overnight recovery measurement
- Get tips to improve sleep and training
- Based on your sleep, and ANS status

Training Load Pro™ gives you values for the load placed on both your cardiovascular and musculoskeletal system (Cardio Load and Muscle Load) after every session, and with Perceived Load you can rate how strained you feel - allowing you to see the immediate strain on your body, and monitor training induced strain over the long-term.
