Main features and innovations: Polar Grit X2 Pro

With the idea of competing with the high-end watches from Garmin, this new Polar Grit X2 Pro impresses with its functionality, but also with its exceptional design and construction- something we've already seen in the best-selling Polar Vantage v3.

Durability that exceeds military standards

It's a state-of-the-art device that meets the rigorous MIL-STD 810H military standards, which ensures that the watch can withstand a wide range of harsh conditions, from extreme temperature variations to deep dives and exposure to corrosive environments. Its ruggedness gives adventurers and explorers the confidence to take on the wilderness, backed by dual-frequency GPS and an enhanced antenna for maximum precision navigation.

More advanced navigation tools

The Polar Grit X2 Pro stands out with a full suite of navigation tools, including accurate topographic maps, the innovative Breadcrumbs navigation feature, detailed route tracking with turn-by-turn directions, compatible with both Komoot and Strava. With pre-installed maps of Europe and North America, you also have the ability to download additional maps for free from Polar Flow.

Premium battery life and storage capacity

In addition to its superior navigation, Polar's Grit X2 Pro redefines expectations for expeditions with a long battery life:

  • Up to 140 hours in Eco mode
  • Up to 43 hours with maximum GPS accuracy
  • Up to 10 days in watch mode

It comes equipped with a built-in flashlight and 32 GB of storage to retain valuable training data, maps and routes for offline use. The Polar Charge 2.0 charger is compatible with the USB-C connector for a better user experience.

Advanced features and Polar Elixir

This all-in-one device reflects Polar's commitment to complete training tools. With advanced features ideal for progressing in outdoor activities, as a user you will be able to monitor your vertical speed and average ascent rate on uneven terrain in real time. The 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, with a higher resolution and 15% larger than previous models such as Polar Grit X Pro or Polar Grit X, improves the display of widgets, controls and training data. A new digital dial design, inspired by the aesthetics of the 1980s, adds a unique touch to the device.

At the heart of the Grit X2 Pro is the revolutionary Polar Elixir technology, which offers unprecedented reliability in optical pulse measurement, fast ECG readings on the wrist, blood oxygen level monitoring (SpO2) and skin temperature tracking at night.

For those focused on maximising performance, the Polar Grit X2 Pro becomes an inseparable 24/7 companion, offering personalized training, recovery and sleep guidance. This holistic view of fitness and sleep, combined with its free adventure capabilities and sleek design, mean this premium device is unmatched in its category.
