Costly to maintain
The wristband failed after 17months and Polar Australia want AUD$52 to replace it. You can get generic replacements much cheaper, but there is a plastic piece that has broken where the band joins the watch, and the generic bands dont have this piece. So for general training i will return to using a phone which can record all the same data, including heart rate with a chest strap. I think the watch is now overpriced for the level of technology.
Purchased in August 2019 for $239.
Reliable and accurate
After having owned and disposed a number of sports watches including Fitbit Surge, Polar M600 and Samsung Gear Sport, I was starting to think there was no sport watch which was accurate, reliable and has a good battery life. That is until the Polar M430.
For the true sport watch it ticks all the boxes.
1. Accuracy - the heart rate monitor never drops out or fluctuates wildly.
2. Data - Syncs well with a comprehensive platform
3. Robust - Waterproof and can take a few knocks
4. Battery - I get 4 days Continued use which includes 2 hours of GPS tracking each day
5. Display - The black and white display becomes even clearer in full sun.
