Polar added the Polar Grit X to its performance lineup of sport watches.
Developed for outdoor enthusiasts, Polar Grit X offers a lightweight design, long battery life, and new Polar smart coaching features.
Polar Grit X features US military-grade standard (MIL-STD-810G) construction, designed to endure the roughest conditions. Weighing only 64 grams, it is delivering up to 40 hours of continuous training with all features fully activated, and even up to 100 hours via multiple power save options.
The new Hill Splitter feature in Polar Grit X automatically detects uphill and downhill segments and delivers detailed ascent/descent performance reporting after each session.
In addition, Polar’s FuelWise smart fueling assistant is delivering tailored, automatic nutrition and water refueling reminders required to maintain proper energy and hydration through even the longest sessions.
Other new additions in the new Polar Grit X include Komoot integration for route sourcing and turn-by-turn guidance, as well as current and 2-day weather forecasts for easier planning and on-the-go updates as conditions evolve.
