POLAR pioneer of wearable sports technology
On April 6, Polar placed another teaser video with dials turning to an “unkown” M4x?? number.
Followed by the text: “Prepare to welcome evolution. Your destiny awaits..”
The numbers seems to be turning to M460, not the new M430 Advanced running watch but Polar’s new GPS bike computer.
Two days ago i mentioned Polar would announce a new bike computer in my Stay tuned, Polar’s move post, First they would announce their new M430 running watch but i didn’t expect they would be released almost together.
The M460 is the updated M450 and shares most functions. It appears the same in Polar Flow and the Training Load details are the same as the M450, Polar’s current bike computer .
