A fairly common gesture among runners is that when it's time to run, they take off their usual watch from their wrist to put on their specific GPS watch to go out and train. GPS watches for running or multi-sport have usually been flashy, one might even say crude and ugly.
So Polar wants to put an end to all this. The Finns are determined that your training clock can become your everyday watchThis formula that started with your V800 model has now reached the mid-range.
The Polar M400 not only will it record your routes, informing you of times, rhythms and heart rates, it will also keep a daily record of your activity, counting steps and calories consumed, and at night it can monitor your sleeping patterns. It will even warn you if you have not moved for a long time.
All training done with the watch, both running and activity monitor outputs, will be synchronized with the Polar Flow portal. The Polar M400 has Bluetooth Smart 4.0 connectivity, allowing it to be connected to supported mobile phones. The connection to the phone will allow you to plan workouts, set up training zones based on the heart rate and review our races, all from a screen larger and more comfortable than that of a watch. If you do not have a phone with Bluetooth 4.0 you will not have a problem, as it also supports USB connection, with a micro USB connector that will also serve to charge the watch.
The Polar M400 It is also waterproof, up to 30m. However, being submerged it will not register the heart activity, as the bluetooth transmission is not able to work under water. But it will be useful to the triathletes, who will be able to use it from the start. As for the autonomy, it is 8 hours in use with GPS and up to 3 weeks if used as a watch and activity monitor.
In the future, compatibility with the step sensorThe speed sensor is not a standard feature of the bike, but although it is also designed for cycling, it does not support the connection of speed/cadence sensors.
