Having a high-tech sports watch can make your time outdoors much more fun and your workouts more productive. But there’s always the worry of damaging your expensive toy.
The Polar Grit X is designed for rugged outdoor enthusiasts who want all those technical features but don’t want to live in constant fear of damaging their investment.
The Grit X passes multiple military-grade tests for functionality in extreme temperatures, high humidity, and crashes.
Still, the lightweight multisport watch (just 64 grams) won’t slow you down while running.
With 40 hours of battery life, it’ll keep up with your longest workout, and the smart refueling feature will remind you when it’s time to eat or drink on the trail.
Mountain bikers will love the uphill and downhill steps you can take, and hikers and trail runners will appreciate the step-by-step guidance to help you navigate the trickiest routes.
You can even get a two-day weather forecast, so you know how to dress for the elements. The Grit X offers specific tracking and metrics for over 130 different sports and activities, and it can provide training programs via the Polar Flow app.
Perhaps best of all, the watch offers a sleek, minimalist look that looks out of place anywhere.
