Congratulations on your new Polar Ignite 2!

Polar Ignite 2 is a customizable fitness watch with smart features. You'll get the most timely and relevant information right on the watch face, including your activity status, your heart rate, latest training sessions including weekly summary, Nightly recharge status and FitSpark on-demand training suggestions.

Polar Ignite 2 measures heart rate from the wrist with Polar’s Precision Prime™ sensor fusion technology and tracks speed, pace, distance and route with built-in GPS. Nightly Recharge™ measures your recovery every night, and the FitSpark™ training guide gives you personalized workout guidance based on your training history, fitness level and current recovery status. The Sleep Plus Stages™ sleep tracking monitors your sleep stages (REM, light and deep sleep) and gives you sleep feedback and a numerical sleep score. Polar Ignite 2 helps you relax and relieve stress with the Serene™ guided breathing exercise. You can adapt the Polar Ignite 2 to suit your style with changeable wristbands and watch face color themes.

The Weather watch face shows the current day's hourly forecast and helps you prepare for weather changes when planning your daily outdoor activities. With the music controls you can easily navigate around your playlist and adjust the volume straight on your watch. You can control music from the training display or from the watch face, or both. Just open your favorite music app or audio book and choose the playlist you want to listen to. The Energy sources breakdown in the training summary shows how much of different energy sources (fats, carbs and proteins) you used during your session. You can see it in the training summary right after finishing your session and also when opening the latest training session view.

In HR sensor mode you can easily turn your Polar Ignite 2 into a heart rate sensor and share your heart rate to other Bluetooth devices like training apps, gym equipment or cycling computers. You can also use your Ignite 2 during Polar Club classes to broadcast your heart rate to the Polar Club system.

We are continuously developing our products for a 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 improvements.
