Introduction

Congratulations on your new Polar Grit X Pro!

For those who like to train outdoors and think of the world as their playground, Polar Grit X Pro is designed to military-level standards with scratch-resistant sapphire glass and ultra-long battery life, providing ultimate durability for the most demanding situations.

Explore the world and live for adventure with all-new navigation tools, always-on outdoor features and Polar's ultimate training solutions. Water-resistant up to 100M with unrivaled GPS accuracy and Polar Precision Prime™ wrist-based OHR tracking, it equips you with the toughest watch out there so you can go wherever you heart takes you.

Polar Grit X Pro Titan edition and its ultra-strength 12% lighter aerospace titanium case equips you with one of the most durable outdoor watches on the market. The ultra-long battery life will not let you down, giving you up to 40 hours of battery life for training with full GPS and HR tracking and even up to 100 hours with power save options.

All-new navigation dashboards include an always-on altimeter, a compass and location coordinates so you know exactly where you are and where you’re heading. The new daylight dashboard gives you sunrise, sunset and twilight times. With the Track back feature you can navigate back to your starting point via the same route you came. Track back allows you to get lost in the thrill of adventure but never doubt that you will find your way back.

Polar Grit X Pro comes with all-new route and elevation profiles that help you outline your coming adventure better and see your progress on the route. With route and elevation profiles you know your current position, how much you’ve ascended or descended, and how much you still have left to go. With the third-party app Komoot, you can plan your route for all adventures and easily import the route to your Grit X Pro, and let turn-by turn guidance keep you on the right track. With the FuelWise™ smart fueling assistant you'll learn how to refuel during your longer adventures.

Training Load Pro™ helps you see how much you’ve been training lately and how your training sessions strain the different parts of your body so you can optimize your training.

With the Hill Splitter™ feature, you’ll know how you performed on the uphill and downhill sections of your session. Hill Splitter automatically detects all uphills and downhills by using your speed, distance and altitude data.

Polar Grit X Pro also comes with the fully automatic and intelligent Nightly Recharge™ and Sleep Plus Stages™ features, which offer an easy and simple way to see how your body recovers from training and stress so you can make optimal choices for the day ahead.

With the running and cycling performance tests you can test your performance and personalize your heart rate, speed, and power zones. The leg recovery test tells you whether your legs are ready for high intensity training. Not forgetting smart features such as weather reports, phone notifications and music controls, Polar Grit X Pro allows you to go wherever your heart takes you.

We are continuously developing our products for better user experience. To keep your watch up to date and get the best performance, always make sure to update the firmware whenever a new version is available. The firmware updates enhance the functionality of your watch through new features and improvements.
