Just a few weeks ago POLAR surprised us with the launch of the new model POLAR VANTAGE M2, improving the functionalities of its predecessor POLAR VANTAGE M launched in 2018.

What has surprised us the most this time is his incredible lightness (45 grams) toas well as the extreme precision in the control of the pulsations on the wrist thanks to its patented technology that incorporates 9 LEDs, 4 electrodes and an accelerometer on its back and offers an exhaustive control of the data.

WE TELL YOU IN DETAIL!

 From the 2018 Polar has not stopped surprising us with its different models, starting with the Vantage M, going through Vantage V, GRIT X, a few months ago the Vantage V2 model and now Vantage M2.

The main difference between each of them, in addition to the design and light weight in the case of M2, is based on the software with different options in the menu that each product has.

POLAR VANTAGE M2, is an intermediate model between Vantage M and Vantage V And, from our point of view, it has come to stay and position itself as one of the best value for money option for the athlete who likes to keep track of their training.

WHAT TYPE OF TRIATHLETE ARE YOU THINKING FOR?

From our point of view a model for those who do not require to this day, the Top-of-the-range VantageV2 options (RRP from 499.90 euros) such as performance tests or route download.

But they do want to keep precise control of their workouts, as well as have other very interesting functionalities looking for a quality / price model that covers all their needs and with which they can monitor their data as shown in these screens.

Polar Vantage M2 can give us all the necessary data of our swimming, cycling or running sessions on foot, also counting on the specific “multisport” option for triathlon capable of measuring the data in a competition, changing activities just by pressing a button.

In addition, it has other options in its menu such as the weather and weather forecast or the so-called “Fitness Test”, capable of giving you data on your VO2max just by putting it on your wrist and following the detailed instructions.

A very useful piece of information to know what our state of form is and to plan our trainings to later measure the improvements.
