Polar Vantage V3 Update

Polar has announced a software update for its premium multisport watch Polar Vantage V3, which includes very interesting new functions.

New features for outdoor training:

  • Breadcrumb Trail Navigation: Retrace your steps on any map.
  • Vertical speed: Know your upload and descent speed with instant measurement of ascents and descents.
  • VAM: Your average climbing speed over a 30-second interval
  • 3D speed: Calculate your real speed on your ups and downs.

Breadcrumb Trail Navigation:

With this new feature, you'll be able to retrace your steps on any map, which will be especially useful if you get lost or want to make sure you don't miss anything on your route.

Vertical speed:

Vertical speed lets you know your uphill and downhill speed, which can help you improve your performance in trail running or other outdoor training.

VAM (Average Ascent Rate):

VAM is a measure of your average climb speed over a 30-second interval. It is a good indicator of your ability to climb hills and can be useful to compare yourself with other athletes.

3D speed:

3D speed calculates your real speed taking into account the slope of the terrain. This gives you a more accurate picture of your performance than traditional speed, which doesn't take gradient into account.

New Strava route support for Polar Vantage V3

If you have a Strava subscription, you will be able to create routes and they will automatically sync with your Polar Vantage V3.

 With this function, you can easily follow the route on your watch when you go for a walk, run or bike route and you will always know where you are and where you are going.
