Polar Pacer running-focused smartwatches announced

Polar has announced two new running-focused smartwatches, the Polar Pacer and the Polar Pacer Pro.

The Finnish workout tech specialist has announced the immediate launch of “a whole new collection of running watches for every type of runner”. We’ve been impressed by the likes of the Polar Vantage V2 in the past, so we might be interested.

The two-headed Polar Pacer line apparently pays homage to the world’s most popular sport. The Polar Pacer is aimed at runners who are new to running, while the Polar Pacer Pro lives up to its name with a “serious running watch” package.

Both watches feature a vibrant 1.2-inch always-on MIP display that’s highly visible in direct sunlight and covered with Gorilla Glass 3.0. They also have a faster processor and 5MB of RAM. In terms of battery life, you get the same 35 hours of training on a single charge with both watches.

You get optical heart rate tracking and GPS with both watches. On the latter front, Polar appears to have implemented a new antenna design that boosts GPS tracking accuracy.

In addition, the Polar Pacer Pro offers turn-by-turn guidance as well as an integrated barometer that automatically measures your running power in watts without the need for additional external sensors.

Again, these are two lightweight watches, with the Pacer weighing in at 40g and the Pacer Pro at 41g.

Polar has integrated a new walk test into both watches that estimates your initial aerobic fitness using VO2max values. You can track your progress by taking a 15-minute walk on a flat path.

The Polar Pacer Pro is available now for £259/$299.90, while the Polar Pacer costs £169.50/$199.90.
