Large Map Area
The V650 downloads map data in blocks of 450 x 450 kilometers at a time - enough for even the most ambitious day rides.
More to come
We aim to add more features in the future, because just like you, we constantly seek to improve.
Motivating feedback that's delivered straight to you immediately after exercise is something we can all benefit from. So if you want to know the effect of different training sessions, this feature will tell you exactly what you need to know. You get a quick overview after each session and for more detailed feedback, you can either check your training file or you can get further in-depth analysis.
Shows you how your training affects your body and helps you compare the load of different workouts. Continuous monitoring of training load will help you recognize your personal limits and adjust your training intensity and duration according to your targets.
Find the perfect balance between training and rest and get a true picture of your recovery status before getting out there again. Recovery status is based on the cumulative load of all your activities including your training sessions and data on the small activities you do every day. Continuous monitoring of recovery status helps you plan your training so that you avoid over and undertraining.
With Route import, you can import new routes to Polar Flow from other services that support GPX or TCX files. Export the files from the service and import them to the Polar Flow web service. From Polar Flow, you can sync the routes to your Polar V800 or Polar V650 for live route guidance.
Heart rate (HR) is an excellent measure of exercise and your training intensity. In the human body heart rate is regulated to match the demands of the body and the environment. When exercise intensity increases, heart rate also increases to match the increased rate of energy expenditure and oxygen uptake. Heart rate can be expressed as the absolute number of beats per minute (bpm) or as a percentage of your maximum heart rate (% HRmax) or heart rate reserve (% HRR). Absolute heart rate during training is not very informative on its own, but when it's expressed and interpreted in relation to HRmax or HRR it determines individual exercise intensity.
Your heart rate value in beats per minute (e.g. 125 bpm) is individual and cannot be compared to another person's value. A percentage of your maximum heart rate value on the other hand is comparable. For instance your friend may have a higher heart rate value in bpm, but the percentage of your individual HRmax can be the same. This means that you have the same relative training intensity.
Maximum heart rate (HRmax) is the highest number of heart beats per minute (bpm) during physical exertion. HRmax is individual and may somewhat decrease as you age. It sets the individual reference value for your training intensity and is used in the calculation of the default heart rate zones and many Polar Smart Coaching features. An age-based HRmax is a rough estimate of your maximum heart rate and it is used as default in most Polar training computers. The most reliable and safest way to determine your HRmax is to have it measured in a maximal laboratory test.
Heart Rate zones
Provide an easy way to adjust and monitor the intensity of your training. By using hear rate zones you can also follow heart rate-based training programs. The default zones are based on your HRmax. Different training intensities have different training benefits, for instance light intensity enhances basic aerobic endurance and hard intensity improves your body's ability to sustain high intensity exercise and your maximal oxygen uptake.
The default heart rate zones are divided into five intensity zones based on the percentage of your maximum heart rate:
• Very light (50-60% HRmax)
• Light (60-70% HRmax)
• Moderate (70-80% HRmax)
• Hard (80-90% HRmax)
• Maximum (90-100% HRmax)
You can define the zone limits yourself as you want. More detailed information about this can be found in the Polar Flow web service.
Help you to monitor your training intensity in cycling and to achieve the optimal effects out of your training. Power zones are based on power which is a direct measure of absolute exercise intensity. Power output is an absolute value of the external work rate, whereas heart rate is the measure of physiological effort needed to produce the power output. Seeing how your heart rate corresponds to the power zones and how it changes over time gives more insight into how your performance is developing.
Using Power zones requires a Keo Power Bluetooth Smart pedal set and a compatible Bluetooth Smart ready training device, such as Polar V800 or Polar V650, in which you can see the power data from the pedals during a training session. You can define the zone limits yourself as you want. More detailed information about this can be found in the Polar Flow web service.
Advanced Power Metrics
Polar users can track Normalized Power (NP), Intensity Factor (IF) and Training Stress Score(TSS).
A moving symbol in zone display in your training computer showing whether you are inside the pre-set or desired target zone. This feature helps you to reach the desired intensity/pace/speed targets.
Strava Live Segments
Make your runs and rides more exciting with Strava Live Segments. Get alerts about nearby segments, see real-time performance data during a segment and check your results right after you finish. Available for Strava Premium members.
Calculates the number of calories burned based on your individual data: your weight, height, age, gender, HRmax, HRrest, VO2max and the intensity of your training/activity. Heart rate-based calorie calculation is used when heart rate is measured and it measures burned calories the most accurately also in conditions like cycling or lifting weights. Activity-based calorie calculation is used in training computers and activity trackers, when heart rate is not available. You can see the cumulative energy expenditure (in kilocalories, kcal) during exercise and total kilocalories of the session after exercise. You can also follow your total daily calories. OwnCal is the most accurate calorie counter on the market. It calculates the number of calories expended during a training session based on your weight, height, age, gender, your individual maximum heart rate (HRmax) and how hard you're training.
