I’m partially guessing but Polar appear to have hosted some press in Madeira this week judging by their feeds, and some comments from well known bloggers. I can’t see anything in the FCC or trademarks, or even any rumours yet. If said event took place, it certainly included cycling, so it would seem either the… Read Article →

It’s looking ever more likely that a new high end watch will arrive soon from Polar. Although nothing is on FCC right now there are some hints. Firstly, it’s been way too long since v800 was released. It’s a great watch (finally) but was dated a few months after release when Garmin dropped the 920XT… Read Article →

As I mentioned a while ago Polar have another watch in the pipeline called the M200. It looks like this is very close as the FCC posting is in, may even be this week. It’s a round faced watch and looks pretty basic to me. Although there is colour in the picture, I would guess… Read Article →

*UPDATE* Here we go Nowyoucan site. Probably one of the below due for announcement in just under 6 days (next Wednesday lunchtime UTC) *UPDATE 2* Well this is interesting, there are two different images in the campaigne. One, the main one, doesn’t have an HR bump. Another, very clearly does on Facebook *Update 3* pictures… Read Article →

Polar are about to release a new HR sensor by the look of it, the H7i. It’s waterproof to 30m so likely to replace the H7. This could be a sign of imminent v800 successor too, since these sort of things are often released together. We can only speculate on what the H7i contains but… Read Article →

Polar have just put out a tease about v800, lava fields and palm trees. Hopefully this means a new watch coming soon 🙂 Since I posted this (hastily from the phone) I looked up Kona 2016 and that’s not until October, and Ironman Lanzarote is September. Anyone want to fill me in on what I’ve… Read Article →

I thought it might be useful to have a roundup of recommendations so everything is in one place, and so we have a nice record of speculations… In alphabetical order of manufacturer.

Ok so I have no direct proof, but DCRainmaker tweeted this weekend that someone on his flight was wearing an unreleased and unannounced sports watch. He also implied that he has one for testing in a reply to comments. I wouldn’t expect a Fenix 4 at this point but we are expecting a 920XT replacement… Read Article →

OK so I was wrong about the Garmin. Again. However, Polar have been teasing about the Boston Marathon and have a big update for v800 GoPro integration coming. DCRainmaker also teased about a Polar update coming tomorrow in his weekly update at http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2016/04/week-in-reviewapril-18th-2016.html
