Polar V800 gets LIVE Strava Segments

If you’ve read my review of the Polar M460 and certain Garmin Edge units you’ll know how much of a fan of LIVE Strava Segments I am. Not only does it add a level of fun and motivation to your training –  when used properly it can help you improve your Personal Record. Your Polar V800 (M460) willy pace you through each section helping you to achieve a new PR (PB). If you’re at the top of your game you can compete with other local athletes and aim for the KOM / QOM.

Free 2 Month Premium Membership

With all devices that provide LIVE Strava Segments you’ll need to be subscribed to the PREMIUM Strava service (around £7/month). THe Polar V800 comes with a FREE 60 day trial, giving you time to decide if it works for you and your training goals.
