I think it will be reasonable to expect a high-res colour screen and 6-LED oHR. but what else? thoughts (here) and below if you want to comment.

  1. Well, it’s a year Garmin has to really retain my interest, otherwise Polar might have my money next year. Currently I have the forerunner 935 and it is beyond a shadow of a doubt the single best watch I have ever owned by Garmin (and i’m upwards to watch 8 in about 3 years time now). If the V810 is the superior watch though, gonna go there.

    I’ve already stated how much I like Polar’s ecosystem, match that with a really sleek looking watch that outperforms Garmin and i’m in.

  2. Once upon a time Polar released V800 before M400. Obviously M400 was a massive success. Nowadays they launched M430 first. In what way will this influence the expected sale to an V8xx?
    My expectations are that the V8xx is much more than just an “advanced” M430 because “yesterday” the M400 was the “little brother” of V800. Today the M430 is not anymore a derivated product of anything.

    • That would be great !
      I would love a few mm slimmer watch without a barometric altimeter. Fine with GPS altitude.
      Or with little bit less battery life. 10-12h 1s sampling is fine for most disciplines.
      And something that can be worn at the office (similar to V800 all black).
