Polar is releasing two new multisport watches this fall, the Vantage V and Vantage M, which offer new technology including a new wrist-based heart rate sensor said to be more accurate than other similar products.

The two watches also tout more more accurate heart rate monitoring that uses multi-layer optical sensing, electrodes and accelerometers to get both faster and more accurate heartbeat readings.

NASA posts incredible video of Hurricane Florence from space
Hurricane Florence has strengthened to a category 4 storm , and it's on a path to potentially cause serious damage in North and SC .

These are certainly not your typical Apple Watch rivals, snubbing Wear OS, lacking most of the features desired by smartphone users looking for a versatile companion, while truly excelling when it comes to health tracking and training optimization. The more mainstream Vantage M sells for $280, but the Vantage V will set you back $500 ($550 with an external heart rate monitor). That number, of course, represents the power that the wearer produces when running.

New coaching features include Training Load Pro and Recovery Pro (in Vantage V only) to let athletes know when they're under-training, have a productive session, or are at risk for over-training/injury. Still offering the above features and Polar Precision Prime heart monitoring, the M430 replacer instead foregoes the wrist-based Running Power feature (though wearers can still sync up a compatible third-party power meter) and focuses on providing tracking for the same 130+ sports as the Vantage V and give insights through Training Load Pro, Recovery Pro and Polar Flow.

Cancer will kill 9.6 million people globally in 2018
The incidence rate for all cancers combined was about 20% higher in men than in women, and deaths were almost 50% higher for men. Almost a half of New Zealand males, and a third of females are estimated to have a risk of getting cancer before they are 75.

For your 550 bucks, you also get a 1.2-inch always-on color touch display with 240 x 240 resolution and Gorilla Glass protection, as well as a relatively large battery rated at up to 40 hours of endurance in "training mode", with both the Global Positioning System and heart rate monitor continuously on. The major differences in the V and M are that running power and Recover Pro are not provided on the Vantage M and the interface is controlled with buttons since there is no touchscreen available on the Vantage M.

As such the Polar Vantage M is also a fair bit cheaper, coming in at $279.95 (around £215/AU$390), while the Polar Vantage V is $499.90 (roughly £385/AU$700). The two wearables also ship with an improved Polar Flow for Coach app that now offers seasonal training calendars and better performance.
