* TRACK YOUR HEART RATE WITH POLAR VANTAGE M2
When it comes to heart rate monitoring, different sports have different needs. Polar Vantage M2 offers you several heart rate tracking solutions – choose the method that suits best to your sports and conditions.
* PRECISION PRIME™
Polar Vantage M2 uses the Polar Precision Prime™ sensor fusion technology to track heart rate from the wrist. This innovation combines optical heart rate measurement with other sensor technologies in order to rule out motion artifacts that might disturb the heart rate signal and produce unreliable readings.
* POLAR H10 HEART RATE SENSOR
When you need unparalleled accuracy, pair Polar Vantage M2 with the Polar H10 heart rate sensor, the gold standard of heart rate monitoring. The Polar H10 heart rate sensor and the Polar Pro chest strap are the optimal choice for interval training, racket sports or any sports with plenty of arm movement.
You can buy the Polar H10 heart rate sensor separately.
* POLAR VERITY SENSE OPTICAL HEART RATE SENSOR
The Polar Verity Sense is an optical heart rate sensor that you can wear on your upper arm or forearm. It’s a great alternative if you can’t wear a watch on your wrist in your sport or if you find the chest strap unpleasant to wear. Polar Verity Sense comes with a comfortable textile armband and it’s easy to put on and take off.
Polar Verity Sense is also a swimmer's best friend: it includes a clip that attaches the sensor to your swimming goggles and an internal memory so you can save your pool session and upload it to Polar Flow afterwards.
Polar Verity Sense is sold separately.
GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and QZSS with assisted GPS for fast fix times.

KEEP YOUR LOAD IN CONTROL
Training Load Pro™
* KNOW HOW YOU TRAIN WITH TRAINING LOAD PRO™
When you train, the different systems of your body get strained. With Polar Vantage M2, you get a holistic view on how your training sessions strain these different systems and how it affects your performance.
* CARDIO LOAD
Your Cardio Load value tells you how much strain your training session put on your cardiovascular system. It is calculated after every workout from your heart rate data.
Your Cardio Load is calculated as training impulse (TRIMP), a commonly accepted method to quantify training load.
* PERCEIVED LOAD
Perceived Load is a value that takes into account your own subjective experience of how demanding your training session was.
The key to finding the balance between training and rest is learning to listen to your body and to combine your subjective feeling with the data you get from your Polar Vantage M2. This is something athletes learn by doing, and your training data will help you learn to know your body better.
Your Perceived Load is quantified with Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE), a scientifically accepted method to quantify training load. Your Perceived load levels indicate how hard a training session was compared to your session average from the past 90 days.
* STRAIN & TOLERANCE
In addition to the training load from individual training sessions, you can follow how Cardio Load builds up over time – the relation between strain and tolerance.
Strain shows how much you have strained yourself with training lately. It shows your average daily load from the past 7 days.
Tolerance describes how prepared you are to endure cardio training. It shows your average daily load from the past 28 days. To improve your tolerance for cardio training, slowly increase your training over a longer period of time.
Your Cardio Load Status looks at how your Strain compares to your Tolerance and estimates how your training is impacting your body.
