The Full Specifications of the Polar Vantage M – A multisport GPS smartwatch with an outstanding design. The Vantage M is the slightly cheaper version of the Vantage V, both are members of the Vantage series that includes the V Titan – a more durable and premium smartwatch.

The Vantage M lacks the barometric altimeter found on the Vantage V and V Titan. Thus, it lacks Running power – a feature that gives you a comprehensive insight into the intensity of your training sessions, and Recovery pro – another feature that lets you see how your body is recovering from the previous workout, helping you plan and achieve more without breaking down.

However, the Vantage M comes loaded with lots of fitness tracking features that make it a comprehensive choice for tracking your active life, and a great choice for pro athletes.

It comes enclosed in a glass fiber reinforced polymer case that leaves it with a lightweight design and interchangeable silicone straps that make it comfortable to wear all day long.

Although not touchscreen, the Vantage M has 5 physical buttons by sides for easy navigation of the 1.2 inch TFT LCD display that’s easy to read outdoors.

It’s swim-proof and has interesting swim-tracking features that makes it a nice choice for swimmers who like to track their swimming activities.

With Bluetooth LE and compatible with both Android and iOS devices, the Vantage M keeps you connected to all that matters to you. Ensuring you never miss important updates from your phone.

And just like the other members of the Vantage series, the Vantage M also has a long battery life that lets you go long on a single charge. In smartwatch mode, the Vantage M should last just about 4-5 days, while you get about 30 hours of battery life in training mode with GPS active.
