Finnish tech company Polar has launched two new sports smartwatches – the Ignite 2 and Vantage M2 – with more advanced fitness tracking features.

Polar Vantage M2

The sports smartwatch Vantage M2 comes with a running program that provides adaptable training plans. If the exercise session is longer, the watch advises you to drink something or to re-energize your body. Guided breathing exercises also ensure a short break. The Polar Vantage M2 not only shows the time but also reminds you to take in nutrients and fluids.

At night, the Vantage M2 records sleep and recovery data and measures how well the user has recovered. The device then uses all the data to create personalized training plans and allows you to track your own progress in the weekly summary. According to the manufacturer, the battery life of the watch is up to 100 hours in training mode.

Other features include:

  • Running Program – Adaptive training plans that allow running goals to be achieved efficiently and precisely.
  • Training Load Pro – Provides detailed insights into the body’s responses to aid full physical recovery before the next workout.
  • Accuracy – Advanced wrist-based heart rate technology and built-in GPS for precise tracking of speed, distance, and location.
  • Sleep and recovery data – The “Sleep Plus Stages” and “Nightly Recharge” functions provide detailed insights into the duration and quality of sleep, as well as the measurement of overnight recovery. That makes it easy to prepare for the next day.
  • Weekly summary – The personalized daily training instructions based on recovery and training progress as well as tracking the progress via the “Weekly Summary” function.
  • Refueling the body – The intelligent supply assistant that provides optimal information on refueling the body with fluids or energy during long training sessions.
  • Smartwatch essentials – easy-to-use display views for wrist-based music control, weather reports and push notifications.
