Polar Vantage M2 User Manual: Features > Race pace

Race pace

The race pace feature helps you to keep a steady pace and achieve your target time for a set distance. Define a target time for the distance - 45 minutes for a 10k run for example and follow how far behind or ahead you are compared to your pre-set target.

Race pace can be set on your Vantage, or you can also set a Race Pace target in the Flow web service or app, and sync it to your watch.

If you have scheduled race pace target for that day, Vantage suggests you to start it when entering pre-training mode.

Create a race pace target on your Vantage

You can create race pace target from the Quick menu in pre-training mode.

  2. In pre-training mode, press the LIGHT button to enter the quick menu.
  3. Choose Race pace from the list and set the distance and duration. Press OK to confirm. The watch displays the pace/speed required to meet your target time and then returns to pre-training mode where you can start the training session.
