The Polar V800 is a GPS, multisport watch made for serious athletes. The watch is 79 grams with a thickness of 12.7 millimeters.

No recalls have been placed on the Polar V800, however, a multitude of firmware updates have been released since 2014 to resolve bugs and to enable the Polar V800 with new capabilities.
