Polar V800 Multisport GPS Watch In-Depth Review


All the way back in early January at multisport GPS watch. This would be their first multisport integrated GPS watch to market, combining the RC3 GPS watch along with the RCX5 non-GPS multisport watch. On top of that, they'd also be integrating in...

Polar V800 review: Tempting for triathletes


Polar has been scaling down the physical size and improving the look of its GPS fitness watches throughout the last few product cycles. The latest V800 has competitor Garmin clearly fixed in its sights, with running, cycling, and swimming activities...

Design, battery life, large and clear display, personalisation, additional sensor options

Complicated, no ANT+, expensive

Polar V800 review


Run, swim and bike yourself to a state of exceedingly lean fitness

Strong build quality. Easy to use, yet very powerful. Impressive battery life.

Highly annoying charging/syncing connector. The heft won't suit everyone and makes it a dubious choice for all-day wear. Not much use as a sleep tracker.

Triathletes and other multi-sport fitness fans will love this. If you only go running, it's probably overkill, but that's up to you and your wallet…

POLAR V800 - Red, Universal


I got the V800 at a great price. I expect it will be replaced sometime in 2018 but it does everything I need. Great battery life; almost a month in just watch function, a week with plenty of GPS / HRM use. The free Polar Flow app and web page is great...

A colour screen would be nice, but I expect an updated version will give that, though it could lose battery life.

POLAR V800 - Red, Universal


Fantastic for pool swimming. My RCX5 just did HR and when you paused it you could no longer see your HR while resting. V800 shows everything. Never had a problem counting lengths but this watch counts distance swam, strokes, rest periods etc etc. Still...

Nothing but bit early to tell how long strap lasts.

POLAR V800 - Black, Universal


So easy to use, I'm terrible with technology and I manage just fine with it! Love the test features on it and the amount of settings/sports on there. The indoor swim setting is really accurate, something a lot of other brands struggle with. Couldn't...
