Training Targets

Plan your training sessions in advance with customised training targets and save them to your training diary. When it’s to break a sweat, your device will guide you throughout your scheduled session, so you can fully focus on your workout.

You can create interval workouts with heart rate, speed, or power targets, or set simple training goals, such as ‘burn 700 kcal cycling’ or ‘run 30 minutes.’ Your device will alert you when you need to slow down or speed up to make sure your training goes as planned.

Smart Calories

Calculates the number of calories burned based on your individual data: your weight, height, age, gender, HRmax, HRrest, VO2max, and the intensity of your training/activity.

Heart rate-based calorie calculation is used when heart rate is measured, and it measures burned calories the most accurately also in conditions like cycling or lifting weights. Activity-based calorie calculation is used in training computers and activity trackers, when heart rate is not available. You can see the cumulative energy expenditure (in kilocalories, kcal) during exercise and total kilocalories of the session after exercise. You can also follow your total daily calories.

Continuous Heart Rate

Follow your heart rate around the clock with Polar’s continuous wrist-based heart rate solution – an intelligent, dynamic function that works with the 24/7 Activity Tracking feature to provide a more comprehensive measurement for activity intensity.

Your watch will check your heart rate at regular short intervals, and if it detects that your heart rate is elevated, it will start recording automatically.

It factors in a variety of activity intensities, even ones with minimal arm movement, such as cycling, so that they can be counted towards your daily activity goal and calorie burn more accurately.

Training Load Pro™

When you train, the different systems of your body become strained. Training Load Pro™ monitors this strain to provide you with detailed insights.

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.

Fitness Test is a simple 5-minute fitness level assessment that can be performed lying down to estimate your VO2max without needing any other equipment. The automatic calculation takes into account your resting heart rate, heart rate variability, and your personal metrics: gender, age, height, weight, and training background.

Recovery Pro™

Recovery Pro™ works in sync with Training Load Pro™ to give you the full picture of your recovery, letting you know when your body is ready for more training, if you’re training at the right level, or if you should take it easier.

Instead of estimating, Recovery Pro™ actually measures your recovery by monitoring the balance between your training and recovery on a daily basis, and over the long-term.

You get feedback and suggestions that take into account training-induced stress, plus everyday stress outside of training, or bad sleep to provide you with personalised guidance to help you train the right way.

Orthostatic Test

An easy and reliable test to analyse your recovery from training and other life demands – so you’ll know when you’re ready for your next session.

Heart rate and heart rate variability are measured in supine rest, active standing up, and standing states during the test to indicate disturbances in the autonomic nervous system, such as fatigue or overtraining. The results also take several other factors into account, such as mental stress, sleep, latent illness, environmental changes (temperature, altitude), and others.

Orthostatic Test is meant for long-term follow up, based on regular tests.
