Excellent features Very informative and motivating

By Adrake2099

from Rome, GA, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I bought this over a year ago, I wanted to make sure I spent adequate time with it before a review. I absolutely love this thing. Seems to be accurate, very motivating and information revealed about workouts is rewarding and informative. Works great with heart chest strap monitor and keeps me aware of heart rate and zones during use. Also works great in water, one of the main reasons I bought this over other fitness trackers. I wear this 24/7. Even take it into shower to wash it off after an intense workout. Battery life is also a huge plus, without gps and working out at least 4-5 times per week I only charge every 3 weeks. With gps workouts is obviously shorter. Gps is quick to connect and seems to be quite accurate. Love the size, just big enough with out being gaudy. Glad to have chest strap heart rate monitor since wrist based monitors aren't that accurate under intense workouts. Wouldn't have minded one though for daily activity or sleep. Sleep taking is fairly accurate, like to see how my averages are each weekof sleeping hours. Overall very satisfied with this product and highly recommend it. I use this device for sleep tracking, calories burned during workouts and daily activity, cycling and running with gps, swimming with both gps and without, and recovery information.

After much research the V800 was my ch

By Bill1866

from The Villages, Florida

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I purchased the V800 around Christmas and as avid biker and swimmer and could not be happier. I elected for the extra expense for the heart rate monitor and don't mind the chest strap as my research indicated it is the most accurate. When swimming it tracks both my back stoke and my freestyle automatically. It's kind like a thermos bottle, how do it know. My one sometimes frustration is getting a good hook up to download data and to charge the watch. I would buy it again.

Great watch with one draw back

By ScubaSteve1962

from Atlanta, GA, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I've had my V800 over a year now, and the it's worked great for me, I haven't had any problems with bluetooth connectivity. I sync with my Ipod, and use a H7 sensor, and stride sensor. I've worn it scuba diving 90 ft ocean water, no problems with rusting. The only draw back is the sync cable and keeping a connection.

Happy but Concerns

By Ratchucker

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

After about six months of use it stopped charging. I too fell victim to the oxidized contact malady. But sent it back to Polar and got a new watch (also deny charging cable-which was also returned with a new one). The updated watch had a little plastic cap over the charging contacts. I wonder how long this will stay in place. I guess time will tell. They need to go with a contactless charger. Software is somewhat so-so. Possibly because I typically work multi-time zones away from the base time of work computer. Every time I sync and charge the watch it reverts back to the computer time. Minor issue to reset the watch, but seems to affect the met goals versus let's get moving. During the day will meet goals and then a few hours later will get let's get moving which makes no sense.

Best Polar watch to date

By slothworld

from Dallas, TX, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I have had my V800 from just about the day it was released. It is bigger than most watches but full of features. I wear it 24/7. Battery life is about a week with regular training sessions.

Just plain good service...

By elgallochingon

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I was replacing the battery on the strap that goes with my V800 and the plastic battery back stripped. Needless to say I emailed my experience and they responded promptly with "tell me where to send a new one"...no charge. Done!

Just what I needed.

By Tyrone

from Alabama

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

This watch is like having your own health accountability trainer with you throughout the day. I am able set a goal for each day and the V800 keeps up with how I am doing. The Polar Flow app and Polar Beat app also work great whether I am mountain bike riding or cycling down the road or playing basketball, etc. (heart monitor required). This watch does so much more than a Fitbit including receiving messages and letting me know when someone is calling. The watch is sleek looking and not too bulky. I highly recommend this watch.

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

First I love that it is also just a basic watch, I love all the detailed views I can customize for each type of training I do, and I also love that it holds a charge for a very long time. Great app and dashboard too, I have recommended to many people already!

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I bought a year ago, must for rehabilitation because my heart problems and i cant overload myself much so the heart rate monitor give me peace of mind when i do sports basically bike, yoga and eliptic. and i can training at the edge of my posibilites. The biggest problem i find on it is the charge/sincronice cable is specific for watch adn not easy to replace, so dont loose it or let it home.

A very good product with excellent cust. service

By TonyG

from Sun Diego

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

Usually use my V800 for running and I am very happy with this product. All the info I need to track my activity is well laid out including my ped/heart rate sensor and can be program accordingly. I usually turned off my GPS to give me more battery time since my trail is the same. Since I was an early adopter, the charging connector of the V800 easily got dirty and I have to be cleaned constantly (I preferred cotton swab with alcohol) and the dirt will prevent a good contact for charging. This was corrected by Polar customer service by installing a rubber cover to seal the contacts from the elements. Be careful when locking your rubber watchband to your wrist, the metal clasp can break from the rubber hinge (the rubber holding the clasp are very thin and small). To avoid this problem, do not pull the watchband too tight to fit your wrist (my mistake), snug fit is good enough and Polar has to replace my watch band. The 2 year warranty is excellent for this electronics and parts. An ideal screen size and very legible under the sun. I am not sure when my V800 will receive calls from my android phone (I know Polar did an update for Apple I-Phone). I LOVE MY V800!

Great features

By Bob37715

from Buffalo

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

The Polar V800 meets or exceeds all my expectations. One drawback is that the V800 charging contacts get dirty after long workout. If you do not make sure that all dirt in and around V800 charging contact is clean. When you go to recharge the V800 it will not recharge.

Love my V800

By Gergany

from Las Vegas, NV, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I have had my V800 about a year and a half. It is stylish enough to wear all the time. The battery is easily rechargeable. No need to change batteries like previous heart rate monitors. It is great for doing laps in the pool because it counts them for you. He heart rate sender works in water. The software is regularly updated by Polar and includes new features. The latest new feature is it counts running cadence without a foot pod. It is cool that text messages and caller ID is displayed from my iPhone. I had my VO2 tested by a professional with a treadmill and face mask with hoses and computer. The number was the same as I tested on the V800. I use the recovery feature all the time to avoid over training.

A Great Tool

By Gavin

from Valley Forge, PA, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I have been using my V800 for over a year and it is a fantastic training tool. I use if for rowing, cycling and hiking. It is easy to use, works flawlessly and provides the feedback I need. I have a tendency to over train so I especially like the recovery status feedback. I purchased it as a training watch so I was surprised when the smart notifications were added. At first I did not like the notifications but I have gotten to depend on this function despite myself.

Excellent at many things

By Johnboy

from Hampton, VA, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I love this V800. For keeping track of my everyday activity, plus my workouts, it excels. The interface is easy to use and the integration with the PolarFlow works well for long term tracking. The only downside I really have for it is that the FT80 allows for workout planning, but the V800 does not. So, I keep the old FT80 around for the circuit/weight training, and the V800 for cardio type work.

Robust

By Jwaugust

from Shawnee, KS, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I purchased this watch about a year ago and have worn it nearly 24 x 7 ever since. Very happy with the build level, the feature set especially gained through your recent software upgrades, and the software that exists both on the watch and on Polar Flow. The battery life is great, I only charge it about every week or 10 days.

Best Sports Watch Ever

By TexasTrey

from Allen, TX

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

This watch along with the heart rate monitor has helped me lose 50 pounds in 6 months. I have also started riding a road bike and can now beat my 23 year old son on some courses. The watch as great features that allow you to track your results while participating in many activities. The ability to create and manage the sports profiles is fantastic. It allows me to see exactly what I want to see for every activity I do. The integration with the Flow app on my iPhone makes the data so easy to get to and use. It keeps me up to date and allows me to track my sleep and activity throughout the dat. I have calibrated the GPS against a couple of other devices and it is the most accurate one I have seen. Also Polar is constantly updating the software to make the device better and better. You will be very happy with the V800.

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I was an early adopter of the V800, and although there were some initial frustrations I'm now very happy with the product. The many software updates over the last 18-24 months have created a device that is stable, reliable, and clearly one of the best triathlon specific watches in the world.

By JMNoriega

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I love the watch, it have amazing features. The only points I will like to comment on is, the swim lap which works great and I love it, but some times it does not register the laps correctly, is there some way to improve this? And in a less important note, Android notifications would be nice too, not only ios

Great watch.... and great exercise tool!

By Lt from DC

from Washington, DC, United States

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I bought this 8 months ago. I have owned computers from two other major competitors. A total of 6 other computers over the years. This was my first Polar. I really like this computer/watch. The set up is easy. It gets great reception for the GPS. The HR monitor has never had an issue and the data transfer to my smartphone and computer have been easy and seamless. I am a gadget guy and I am very satisfied with this product.

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I really like the V800, but will admit that I did not spend any money on it, I was lucky enough to win it. If I had paid money, it would be different. I think that the product is continually being improved, but could still be more complete.

Love it

By WV Runcoach

Comments about Polar V800 GPS Monitors:

I love the V800. Very easy to use with the essential functions plus more but not a bunch of features I don't use or even know what they are. I'm a coach and recommend the V800 and M400 to my new runners for ease of use and effective GPS and HRM.
