If you’ve had issues with smartwatches not being able to handle everything you throw at them, the Polar Grit X Pro is here to change that.

The Grit X Pro is designed to be a combo fitness tracker and outdoor watch, with tracking modes for cycling, surfing, skiing, or hiking and turn by turn GPS capability.

The Titan Edition uses titanium for a much lighter version with the same durability and performance, so you don’t have to worry about all those features weighing you down.

Let’s Talk Features…

Precision Prime: Let’s face it, it can be difficult to keep an accurate heart rate measurement when you’re constantly in motion, not to mention if you have a darker skin tone and the typical single light tech in most watches isn’t quite accurate.

That is where Polar Precision Prime tech comes in. It combines multiple sensor technologies including optical heart rate measurement to give a more thorough and accurate heart rate reading.

FuelWise & Training Load Pro: Whether you’re the type to forget to refuel your body or you just want to make sure to pack exactly what you need to keep yourself going on a long ride, FuelWise uses your calorie expenditures to give you periodical reminders that it is time to smash some carbs or grab a drink.

Training Load Pro helps prevent injury by helping you track the load placed on your cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems during activity to help observe and not exceed your body’s limits.

On top of these standouts, there are tons of other dope features and functions including sleep tracking, performance and recovery tests, GPS, always-on outdoor dashboards, and more.

Go Confidently Into the Unknown

This watch has several tools to help you find your way.

Turn by Turn Guidance: This feature allows you to use komoot to plan your routes and then sync them with your watch so you have accurate navigation on the go.

Track Back: Track Back functions as your trail of breadcrumbs so that you can find your way back to where you began, no matter how far off the beaten path you wander.

Global Navigation Satellite Systems: The GPS in this watch works in tandem with global satellite systems to ensure that you have the most accurate GPS positioning as well as greater signal access and faster fixes.
