Polar GPS Watch
One of the most noteworthy additions to the world of high-tech sports watches is the Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) technology. With this innovation, Polar is one of the companies that have been fast to come up with the best watches for every need.
A is a convenient tool that can be used in a variety of sports and outdoor activities, which can be particularly beneficial for navigating, pacing or tracking a person’s exercise and fitness level.
By checking the user’s position periodically, the Polar GPS watch will calculate the rate of speed and distance traveled, which includes rate of ascent when applicable. Part of the feature set is marking waypoints, or distances to existing waypoints. A great GPS watch will make sure that you stay on the trail even when nature has confusing landmarks, or that you are following difficult intersecting paths. Polar GPS watches with a built-in compass can really be a true lifesaver to anyone who travels off the beaten path.
Generally, a Polar GPS watch is accurate within 15 meters or 49 feet. You should not expect a perfect and precise accuracy all the time as distance and speed measurements are based on position data. If the data received from satellites is not completely accurate, then the reported distance and speed data won’t be either. The primary cause of inaccurate position data has something to do with satellite signal reception. The most obvious obstruction is the presence of large objects within the satellite signals. While modern GPS receivers are improving, getting the most accurate GPS readings may not be as accurate as staying somewhere with a wide open view of the sky.
The reason why every athlete wants a Polar GPS watch is its heart monitor feature. Each goes beyond speed and distance. It is like a coach that guides users through each workout. It makes them understand that in order to reach certain goals, they need to train at the right intensity. A Polar heart monitor is the easiest and most accurate way to incessantly measure heart rates. For endurance workouts, it paces users so they won’t overdo it. For tempo runs, it keeps them on track. Lastly, for interval workouts, it makes sure users work hard enough and recover when it’s time.
Most Polar GPS watches are equipped with a calendar date as well as day of the week display, an alarm with doze, dual time zones (both military and regular twelve-hour time period), and a replaceable battery that can be changed in an instant.
