The Polar V800 is one of THE best sport watches on the market today, engineered to not only track your workouts but take your fitness training to a whole new level. The V800 is Polar’s flagship, GPS enabled sports watch engineered to track the gauntlet of sport activities…running, swimming, cycling, yoga, martial arts, tennis, CrossFit, etc. Like the Polar m400, the V800 can also track your daily activities including steps taken and calories burned. However, in many ways, using the V800 as a fitness band would be like taking a Ferrari to the grocery store to buy milk.
The V800 is definitely a premium device, made from stainless steel, gorilla glass, and thick rubber. These premium materials give this multi-sport watch a high-quality look and feel missing from many of its plastic counterparts. The screen is protected by gorilla glass and is surrounded by aluminum sides that curve nicely into its stainless steel back. The V800 has a quality feel and heft to it, but not so much that it gets in your way of being epic.
