For those of us who are interested in the outdoors, the current situation might make things a bit difficult to navigate. Heading to our favorite trails, waterways, or slopes might be a more complex process than it used to be, meaning that at the moment, the utilization of all our newly-purchased gear seems like a distant dream. Of course, for Polar, the release of its newest Grit X Outdoor Multisport GPS Watch couldn’t have come at a better time.
Sarcasm aside, Polar’s newly-introduced GPS watch has made us red with envy, dreaming of days traversing the dirt-laden expanses. As the company’s first watch devoted to — and designed specifically for — outdoor athletes, the Grit X has been gifted with a variety of different technologies and smart monitoring systems. To start, there’s Hill Splitter, a feature tailored to trail runners that helps for easy record of ascent and descent times. Next, there’s FuelWise, a diagnostic system that monitors your caloric expenditure as you take on a wide breadth of activities, notifying you when you need to eat or drink. And finally, there’s a three-day weather forecast that provides relevant, up-to-date information on your surroundings.
