Polar Vantage specs and features
According to the latest leaks, the Polar Vantage will come in 2 versions, the first being the Vantage V which is the premium model and the Vantage M which is the entry-level model. Based on current information both models will come with the following features that are similar.
Polar Vantage M Specs & details
Vantage M will come in 2 different sizes. and will be available in black and white colours. But will not come with the Polar Precision Prime HR tech the Vantage V will have.
- GPS with barometer
- Optical HR sensor, but I am not convinced it will have the same optical HR sensor the Vantage V will have. But we will have to wait and see.
- Water resistance 30m (WR30M)
- Weight 81g
- Training load and Recovery Pro.
- Possible gorilla glass for both models
The Vantage M will be the entry-level model, but based on the specs the watch will be impressive. Although others like appelmoessite are reporting, I am not convinced that the Vantage M will come with Polar Precision Prime.
Polar Vantage V Specs & details
- Water resistance 30m (WR30M)
- Up to 40 hours of battery life with GPS and Optical HR sensor running, wow
- Measure running power from the wrist

Vantage V will come in 2 different sizes. and will be available in black and white colours with a special edition Orange version.
The Standout features will be;
- The new heart rate measurement will be done with Polar’s new technology Polar. Precision Prime. A technology combining optical HRM and measurement via skin contact. But this is only going to come with the high-end model at £549
- The 40-hour battery life including using GPS
- The running power measurement on the wrist.

Whilst no solid date is announced for the release of the Polar Vantage, I am putting the stake in the ground to say it is going to happen around October time based on a Polar Demo event has been confirmed, supposedly in the Netherlands, on the 3rd October in which units Polar Vantage units will be sold. Polar has also set up a micro-site to showcase the new Polar Vantage watch
