Polar Vantage V and Vantage M 3.0.10 firmware updates
There are new firmware updates available for both Polar Vantage V and Vantage M.
This year’s first release brings a bunch of new features to your Vantage. The latest additions include the Back to start and Route Guidance (Vantage V only) navigational features. Also in the mix are Phone notifications, Do not disturb, Sleep watch face and quick menu.
Back to start guides you back to the starting point of your session making it a useful feature when exploring new places. Just follow the arrow on the display to find your way back.
Route guidance (Vantage V only) lets you discover new routes from other users in Polar Flow and third-party services. Mark interesting routes as favorites in the Polar Flow explore view or import GPX or TCX routes to Flow from other services and sync them to your watch. Your Vantage V will keep you on track and guide you all the way. For instructions see Route Guidance on Vantage V.
Phone notifications keep you connected with alerts from calls, messages and apps. You’ll get the same notifications on your Vantage that you get on your locked phone screen. Available for iOS and Android.
Do not disturb lets you switch off all phone notifications. The automatic backlight gesture, sounds, vibration and watch notifications are also off making it a nifty feature for nighttime use.
The Sleep watch face lets you check your last night’s sleep details and rate how you slept conveniently from your watch. Just swipe left/right or use the UP/DOWN buttons to find it from the time view. Already awake? is shown on it after four hours of sleep is detected. To speed up the sleep metric calculation press OK after waking up to stop tracking your sleep and to get your sleep summary. Follow your sleep stats in the Flow web service and app to know more about your sleep quality and patterns in the long-term.
We’ve also added the handy quick menu which gives you easy access to favorites, timers, routes and Back to start. It’s available in pre-training, pause and transition mode with the LIGHT button.
