When fully charged, the Polar M200 offers six hours training time with GPS and optical heart rate, and also tracks daily activity such as steps, burned calories, sleep time and sleep quality. It also boasts vibrating notifications to inform you of incoming calls, messages, calendar alerts and social media notifications as well as reminding you to stay active with inactivity alerts.

The latest wearable from Polar goes beyond providing training data and daily tracking to allow users to view their training, activity and sleep details in Polar Flow, the free online service available as an app (iOS and Android) and as a web service. The Polar M200 also offers Polar’s unique Smart Coaching features including the new Running Program, a personalised and adaptive training plan available for free in Polar Flow.
