Thanks to Pierre for the information here, it sparked off a LOT of comments!
These pics are screenshots taken with my phone yesterday as I wasn’t near a computer at the time.
I have to say, Polar have done a really great job here looking at the pictures. If these watches work well I may buy one. The only down side to me is that with my Fenix 5 and metal band I have a work wear watch while these are purely athletic looking.
While the pictures likely weren’t supposed to leak, Polar have started providing some new content, and to me it looks like they feel they have their mojo back. Like Suunto I think they’ve realised they can’t out-Garmin Garmin so they are focussing on “being the best you you can be”. About time! Sports tech has been getting worse for sports over the last few years despite a massive rise in hardware and software quality, and feature numbers. If a watch could give better advice, more accuracy, and great pace info it may just be a winner with the original target demographic – people who actually go outside and do sports.
This first link makes a good point. Some manufacturers give you the output of a sensor (data), and some give you processed information based on science (information). The latter can be used effectively for training, the former is just noise for Strava.
Please bear in mind that none of these are original images, they are pictures I took of the public Internet. No copyright theft here, and no embargo.
