Description

The Polar M430 sports watch doesn't just help you set your next running goals, but shatter them as well. This is a waterproof GPS watch which provides reliable heart rate data at the wrist through an optical heart rate monitor. This Polar M430 offers the Polar Fitness test using the wrist-based heart rate monitor, as well as the Polar Running Program and Running Index as training tools. Even during indoor training sessions, the M430 registers your distance and pace using the built-in accelerometer. You receive personal coaching and feedback during your run, and your data is transmitted to the Polar Flow app on your phone using Bluetooth Smart. This app then allows you to quickly and easily analyse your data, as well as share it on social media and Strava.

Good and reliable

This is a good and reliable watch, heart rate is measured accurately. It's easy to use. The delivery was efficient and I had no problems with the service.

Veelzijdige sporthorloge

Een prachtig horloge met een lange accuduur. De notificaties via de telefoon hadden ze achterwege kunnen laten of anders moeten doen want het is niet echt duidelijk wat er nu precies binnenkomt. Ook komt de hartslagmeting soms laat op gang. Zo zit ik met mijn hartslagband meting al vrij gauw rond mijn normale sporthartslag. Bij de polar duurt het een paar minuten voor dat dit lukt

Pros

  • Accu gaat lang mee
  • Veel verschillende sporten
  • Snel opgeladen
  • Duidelijk scherm
  • Ziet er mooi uit

Cons

  • Notificaties werken niet of slecht
  • Hartslagmeting is niet altijd even nauwkeurig

one of the best...

Ideale sporthorloge, prijs-kwaliteit top ! Waterdich, heel makkelijk te bedienen, heel veel verschillende sportprofielen, accurate hartslagmeting en eenvoudige synchronisatie.Welke te ontvangen meldingen kan je zelf instellen, jammer genoeg hapert het toestel hier af en toe...

Pros

  • accurate hartslag
  • veel sportmogelijkheden
  • waterdicht
  • automatische en manuele synchronisatie (eenvoudig)

Cons

  • meldingen komen niet altijd of soms laat toe

Perfecte sporthorloge. Topper!

Reeds mn derde generatie hartslagmeter. De M430 steekt er toch wel bovenuit vr zijn prijs/kwaliteit. Uitstekende activity tracker. Als amateur wielrenner, de ideale hartslagmeting via pols. Testing mt mn mio hartslagmeting, borstband, is meestal dezelfde. Zelden een trage reactie. Dus zeker accuraat genoeg. Zeer eenvoudige bediening. Menu is overzichtelijker/eenvoudiger geworden ivg mt zn voorgangers. Goed leesbaar, zelfs tijdens de sport. Syncen met de Polar flow geeft veel randinfo, zelfs de gereden gps route. Autonomie batterij : - 2 ritten vn elk 5uur - activity tracker/uurwerk vermoedelijk 14 dagen (nog ni echt uitgetest) Twee minpuntjes : -geen indicatie(lampje) wanneer volledig opgeladen. Maar..., laadt heel vlug op. - borstband werkt enkel mt bluetooth en niet mt Ant+ of beiden. Beide technologiën samen brengen onder 1 toestel zou toch wel zn voordeel brengen in cumulatie mt e niet Polar toestel. Jammer! Merkgebonden? (Mn mio gps borstband werkt mt Ant+) Deze aankoop heeft me zeker ni ontgoocheld. Topper. En..., zoals gewoonlijk, heel snelle levering.

Pros

  • Accurate polsmeting
  • Goed leesbaar
  • Goede activity tracker
  • Waterdicht
  • App Polar flow : veel informatie

Cons

  • indicatie bij volledig opgeladen, ontbreekt
  • Borstband : niet compatibel mt Ant+
