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 long overdue v800 replacement (v900, v950, v1000 take your pick!) or a v650 replacement which is less overdue. Either way, we’re too close to xmas for a sensible announcement so CES 2017 could be the date to wait for.
If anyone has any info let me know in the comments or on Twitter.
