Charge the Battery
After unboxing your V800, the first thing you need to do is charge the battery. Let your V800 fully charge before taking it into use for the first time.
The V800 has an internal, rechargeable battery. Use the custom USB cable included in the product set to charge it via the USB port on your computer. You can also charge the battery via a wall outlet. When charging via a wall outlet use a USB power adapter (not included in the product set). If you use an AC adapter, make sure that the adapter is marked with "output 5Vdc 0.5A - 2A max". Only use an AC adapter which is adequately safety approved (marked with "LPS", "Limited Power Supply" or "UL listed"). Do not charge the battery in temperatures under -10 °C or over +50 °C.

Make sure the USB connector snaps firmly into place, and that the Polar logo on the USB connector and V800 are facing the same direction.
Battery Operating Time
|In continuous use||In time mode with daily activity monitoring|
|With high accuracy GPS recording and heart rate: up to 13 hours||Approximately 30 days|
|With medium accuracy GPS recording and heart rate: up to 20 hours|
|With GPS power save mode and heart rate: up to 50 hours|
|With GPS recording off and heart rate on: up to 100 h|
Battery operating time depends on many factors, such as the temperature of the environment in which you use your training device, the features and sensors you use, and battery aging. The operating time is significantly reduced in temperatures well below freezing. Wearing the training device under your overcoat helps to keep it warmer and to increase the operating time.
Low Battery Notifications

The battery charge is low. It is recommended to charge V800.
Charge before training
The charge is too low for recording a training session. A new training session cannot be started before charging V800.
When the display is blank, the battery is empty and V800 has gone to sleep mode. Charge your V800. If the battery is totally drained, it may take a while for the charging animation to appear on the display.
