Polar V800 overview

  • 1Description

The blue V800 Fitness Watch with Heart Rate Monitor from Polar allows you to tell time, tracks your position with GPS, and monitors your training sessions or daily activity. Its easy to read backlit screen can provide fitness-related feedback to help you create a training program based on your person goals as well as guide that training. The V800 supports triathlon training with transition times and can be customized for training in 20 different sports. The built-in GPS training computer provides speed and distance data, as well as route information at the Polar Personal Trainer website.

The V800 includes a Polar H7 coded transmitter that is worn around your chest to monitor your heart rate while exercising and resting. The transmitter wirelessly sends an encrypted ECG-accurate heart rate signal that can only be read by your V800.

Using the included USB connection to plug the V800 into your internet-connected computer, you can gain access to the Polar Personal Trainer website, which allows you to keep a record of your workouts, track progress, access GPS information, and plot future workout programs. You can also enter your data into the site manually.

Smart Coaching

Fitness Test
Tells you how your fitness is developing. If you're looking to improve your fitness and want to keep up to date with how well you're doing, the smart Fitness Test will tell you what you need to know in just five minutes. By regularly comparing your test results, you can see what progress you are making and how your fitness is improving
Running Index
Illustrates how your running performance is developing. If you're looking to keep on top of your running performance you'll find this feature a big help. Regular use over time allows you to see how efficient your running is. Your Running Index score is calculated automatically after every run, based on your heart rate and from the speed data collected from your GPS or optional stride sensor. A higher reading indicates that you can run faster with less effort. In V800, this feature can also recognize if you're running uphill or downhill
Smart Calories
Lets you know how many calories you've burned. OwnCal calculates the number of calories expended during a training session based on your weight, height, age, gender, your individual maximum heart rate (HRmax) and how hard you're training
Orthostatic Test
Shows how your heart rate responds to training and factors such as stress and illness. By repeating the test regularly, you'll learn what to expect with your heart rate and what can affect it. You can then adjust your training to allow your body to recover when it needs it
Training Benefit
Motivating feedback that's delivered immediately after exercise is something we can all benefit from. So if you want to know the effect of different training sessions, this feature will tell you what you need to know. You get a quick overview after each session. For more detailed feedback, you can either check your training file or go to the Polar Personal Trainer website for further in-depth analysis
Training Load and Recovery
Helps you find the perfect balance between rest and training. Shows you how much your training affected your body and how long it takes for you to recover. Continuous monitoring of training load and recovery will help you recognize personal limits, avoid over- or under training, and adjust training intensity and duration according to your daily and weekly targets
Recovery Status Based on 24/7 Activity
Know your true recovery status by combining your workout training load with data on the small activities you do every day. Get a picture of your required recovery time before getting out there again

Body Measurement Features

User-Definable Heart Rate Zone Limits
There are three ways you can set zone limits: as default heart zones that are automatically calculated based on your max HR; as free heart rate zones for which you can set the limits yourself; or as heart rate zones based on thresholds which you can define yourself
HRmax (User Set)
Max heart rate
HRmax (Age-Based)
The highest number of heart beats per minute (bpm) during maximum physical exertion. For a rough estimate of your maximum heart rate, subtract your age from 220. HRmax is a useful tool for determining the intensity of training as intensity zones can be defined using HRmax. Some Polar products define maximum heart rate during the Polar Fitness Test, see also HRmax (Polar Fitness Test -based)
Polar Fitness Test
Polar Fitness Test measures your aerobic fitness at rest in just five minutes. The result, Polar OwnIndex, evaluates your maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max). With the Polar Fitness Test you can measure your aerobic fitness by yourself, automatically and without any exertion. All you need is your training computer. The Polar Fitness Test is as accurate in predicting the VO2max as any sub maximal fitness test. The test is based on heart rate and heart rate variability at rest and personal information
HR-Based Target Zones with Visual and Audible Alarm
You can define your target zones for a training session based on heart rate to help define the right intensity. When you are out of the preset zones, the training computer will give a visual and audible alarm
Average and Maximum Heart Rate of Each Lap
Average and max rate per lap
Average, Minimum, and Maximum Heart Rate of Training
Average, min, and max rate while training
Heart Rate - bpm / %
Heart rate is the measurement of the work your heart does. Heart rate can be expressed as the number of beats per minute or as percentage of your maximum heart rate. Heart rate can also be expressed as a percentage of your heart rate reserve, meaning the difference between your resting heart rate and maximum heart rate (HRR = HRmax - HRrest). In Polar software or during strength training, heart rate can be displayed as a graphical trend

Training Features

Interval Trainer Guided Workouts - Heart Rate / Pace / Distance
Create interval workouts based on time, heart rate, speed/pace or distance and get guidance during training
Swim Data Logging
Track your swims by number of laps as well as total distance swam
Vibration and Audio Alerts
During training, you are notified with a sound or vibration, for example when you need to slow down or speed up to make sure your training goes as planned
Tap Gestures
When you tap the display of your training computer in time mode, it will show your recovery status. During training, you can also take lap time, change the training view or activate the light by tapping the display
Number of Laps - Unlimited
Unlimited number of laps
Training Computer Settings
You can edit the settings with either the WebSync software or at the Polar Flow web service
Graphical Target Zone Indicator
This feature points out graphically on the display the zone you are in during a training session, helping you to stay on the desired intensity zone
Automatic Lap Recording
With this feature you can set your training computer to take laps based on preset distance, for example, every 1 mi/km
Adjustable Sport Profiles
Lets you list all your favorite sports and define specific settings for each one of them. For example, you can create tailored views for each sport you do and choose what data you want to see when you train (i.e. just heart rate or only speed and distance) - whatever suits you and your training needs and requirements best. It will also automatically detect the sensors you have added. You can set up to 20 sport profiles with the V800
Transition Times in Multisport Training
Shows the time it takes for switching from one sport to another
Multisport Training
With just a few button presses, you can change from one sport to another during training, for example in a triathlon
ZonePointer is a visible and moving symbol on the training computer display indicating whether you are inside the pre-set target zone. This feature helps you to reach the desired intensity/pace/speed/cadence targets
User Configurable Displays - All Lines
This feature allows you to configure training computer displays to show the information that you need during your training session. You can do it either in your training computer, Polar software or at the Polar Flow web service
Training Reminder
Reminds you to drink, eat or take other important actions during training
ZoneLock feature helps you acclimate to a certain intensity. You can either lock a zone before a training session or during it by pressing a button when you are on the desired zone

Polar Flow Web Service Features

Counts steps taken during the day. A basic recommendation is to aim for 10,000 steps or more a day
Advanced Training Analyzing
You can easily analyze every detail of your training and get a deeper insight into your activities with plenty of possibilities to learn from what you do
Map View
When you use GPS, you get a map view of your training route. On the map you can examine your training data in further detail
Activity Zones
Activity zones track your daily activities at five intensity levels: resting, sitting, low, medium and high. You can check how active you've been at the Polar Flow web service and mobile app. You can also compare the intensity of the different activity zones (low, medium, high). The higher the intensity, the faster your activity goal is reached
Advanced Activity Analysis
Activity reports store all your daily activity so that you can easily analyze your daily and long-term physical activity. The total active time tells you the cumulative time of body movements that are good for your body and health. Besides the many details you get about your physical activity and all the health benefits that come with it, you can also see the inactive periods and when you've been still for too long
Training Diary
Diary is available at the Polar web service. When you transfer your training results from your training computer to the Diary, you can follow up your activity well as plan future training sessions. You can choose to see your training history in a month or week view, along with a monthly or weekly summary

Polar Flow Mobile App Features

Sleep Duration and Quality
Starts tracking your sleep time automatically when you lie down and your body movements slow. It also tracks your body movements as you sleep. The Polar Flow mobile app and web service tell you how much you slept in total and how restful your sleep was. By showing you the amount of restful versus restless sleep, it gives you a detailed look into how you sleep at night and how changes in your daily life can affect your sleep patterns
