    1. The only thing i know is the orange version that i have on order reports a sale date of Nov 15.
      I will try and see if the black and white versions report different dates.
      (must say it could be a standard +3 months time until announcement at which the real dates will be filled in.)


      1. Anders Lindell


        Regarding the (with both red and green LEDs (9*)+ 4El!) so it will most likely have 9 leds, what do you mean with (+ 4El!)

        Rumors also stats touch screen, have you heard anything regarding this?


      1. Scud

        Well, in the text you say: “I have seen quite a few rumours about this one but no specs or pictures”. So what is it – have you seen the specs list or not?


      2. The “specs” come from the pre-preorder i made for the watch, in basic what the sales system finds the most important features from the watch. There are some non common words in it which i presume come from the Finnish – English translation.


    1. That’s the way i read it.
      Personally i wouldn’t be surprised if the 9 LEDs turn out to be a combination of multicolor LEDs and single color ones. (technical you could count a RGB LED as 3 LEDs) after al it’s all about marketing.
      The electrode part is in the same text part as the LED part and the claim “the most accurate wrist heart rate recording system on the market”. Technical it’s not “new” but as this is Polar (quality) and not Garmin (quantity) it could indeed turn out to be the best wrist sensor on the market (with OWS?)


  1. Pierre

    I have found that both watches can be preordered on site westernbikeworks, at prices $499 and $279. The indicated delivery date is September 29th.
    There is also pictures, with a round design, and we clearly see on the backside the green and red leds and 4 electrodes.

    Do you have any more info/link about this rumor?

    Update5: (Aug 28, 2018) In the Netherlands there is a demoday on oktober 3 on which a limited amount of Vantage watches are for sale (no model mentioned)


  4. Berthold Kusserow

    No, actually it used to be a parked page. Now it is linked to the regular polar website. However, this website does not contain any new information, except for a link to a video clip, which already has been discussed in various fora. What is that supposed to mean?


    1. It means Stay tuned.
      No, first a site is registered (polarvantage.com) and kept at the registrant.
      Short before release/adding the data it is moved to the final “domain” which is Polar.
      Now with one press of the button all information on the Polar Vantage will be available.
