Polar V800 Can Sync Wireless With iPhone and Android While 910XT Must Be Cabled

Smartphone data transfer is the way everything is headed and Polar V800 has that capability thanks to Bluetooth Smart.....

V800 is the new multisport GPS watch from Polar that offers Bluetooth Smart plus 24/7 activity monitoring and it passes the Garmin 910XT as the top triathlon watch according to the Heart Rate Watch Company.

"Smartphone data transfer is the way everything is headed and Polar V800 has that capability thanks to Bluetooth Smart", says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "Polar's heart rate variability data and the fact that it will monitor all activity, just like Polar Loop, around the clock in recovery calculations makes it the top triathlon watch choice for 2014 in our opinion".

Garmin 910XT Update

"My guess is that Garmin will announce something later this year that will add Bluetooth and the run features that have been incorporated in to the Garmin 620 and Garmin fenix 2", says Squire. He adds, "The 910XT came out three years ago this coming October, so its time for a facelift".

Garmin 910XT still uses primarily ANT+ technology and while that is still what most power meters use the majority of the industry is shifting to Bluetooth Smart, according to Squire. "There is a lot of money invested out there in power meters so the transition to Bluetooth Smart will likely take a number of years, but it is well underway", says Squire.

Design and Features

V800 is slimmer, uses a tougher gorilla glass crystal and offers all of the most advanced Polar heart rate features according to Squire. "Polar V800 also offers heart arte in the water which is something Garmin has never achieved", says Squire. He adds, "In our testing Polar heart rate monitors have also proven to be much more accurate on calories than other brands because Polar does their homework".

Availability and Pricing

Polar V800 in black, both with and without the Polar H7 Bluetooth chest strap, will be available in mid-May at $449 and $499 respectively. The Polar V800 in blue will be available in early June. "We recommend getting you orders in now because advance sales have been very brisk", says Squire.
