Polar M430 Video Review

Here it is … my 20 minute VIDEO REVIEW of the Polar M430 GPS sports watch with built-in heart rate. Full details of the Polar M430 Review can be found here

You will find a full and in-depth product review of the Polar M430 here.

The brilliant new Polar M430 GPS sports watch with wrist based heart rate. The Polar M400 was a fantastic running / all sports watch but the M430 is even better. 6 x LED sensors on the back of the watch provide accurate Heart Rate readings. A super clear sunlight visible screen is easy to view in ALL light conditions. Once paired with your iPhone or Android device it is possible to customise the Sports Profiles so you get the data fields and size of metric that you want for each sport.

Phased Training / Intervals

The Polar M430 supports over 80 different sports profiles, utilizes Polar’s 5 x Heart Rate Sport Zones and can be programmed for technical PHASED TRAINING sessions. The M430 is a strong alternative to the Garmin Forerunner 235 / Forerunner 35 aimed specifically at Runners but suited to athletes of all sports, indoor and out.

Fitness Testing / VO2 Max Estimation

For technical / keen athletes the M430 has a built-in Fitness test that provides a VO2 Max estimate. Keeping track of the results of the fitness test is easy with the Polar Flow web-service. As you get fitter, your VO2 Max score will increase.

Polar Running Index

For dedicated Runners the Polar M430 has a RUNNING INDEX. At the end of every run the M430 awards a score from 0 to 100 based on your age, time and distance of your run. Your Running Index scores are all logged in the Polar Flow web-service for progress reviews at any time.
