Following the release of the Vantage V3 in October 2023, Polar is back today to announce the Polar Grit X2 Pro<!–>which offers the same technologies, sensors and algorithms in a robust watch with improved durability and some new software features designed for an active outdoor lifestyle.

I hope Polar, Coros and Suunto add a real LED flashlight to their outdoor watches one day.
