POLAR Running Power


Running power is a great complement to heart rate monitoring – it helps you monitor the external load of your running.

Power responds to changes in intensity faster than your heart rate, which is why Running Power is a great guiding metric in interval and hill sessions. You can also use it to maintain a steady effort level during your run, for example in a race.

The calculation is done with Polar’s proprietary algorithm, and it is based on your GPS and barometer data.

Polar Vantage V2 uses Running Power to calculate your Muscle Load, the load that your training session puts on your joints and your muscular and skeletal systems.
