Can I keep the display from turning off during training?

You can keep the display on during the whole training session by doing the following:

  1. Start a training session.
  2. Swipe down from the top of the screen.
    If you’re listening to music from the phone you’ve paired with your M600 or from the Google Play Music app on your M600 while you’re training, the music controls view will be the first view you’ll see. Then you’ll have to swipe left to find the Backlight view.
  3. Tap the crossed out light bulb icon to turn the Backlight ON for the current training session.

You have to activate the backlight separately for each training session.

You’ll need Polar app version 1.2 or newer to use this feature.

Keeping the display on during training considerably reduces the battery operating time of your M600: with automatic screen brightness, the operating time is on average reduced to 5 hours of training time, and in bright conditions when the screen contrast level is highest, the operating time may be reduced to 3 hours of training time.
