Polar has just announced the Polar Vantage V Titan.
It is NOT a major announcement and the Polar Vantage V TITAN is just like the V but with PREMIUM MATERIALS. That’s a TITANIUM case which makes the TITAN super-light…oh, and a new two coloured strap that has a textile feel but which is made of silicone.
Edit: 59g reduced from 66g …not much. Titanium is cool tho
That’s all folks, no improvement to the existing Gorilla Glass (edit: Gorilla Glass 3) but let’s hope there are new devices to come from Polar as the year progresses.

You probably found the rendered pictures/video also:
I hope it has improved GPS accuracy due to the different material.
Polar should enroll programmers from the extra revenue 🙂
– Worth a looks at the zip file if anyone wants to see the renders. standard product shots
You mentioned perhaps a hardware change to the Precision Prime sensors in Titan OR a coming FW update that tinkers with OHR on all Vantages. Any more details on this? Thanks.
no change, my bad
Very beautiful. But I’m still reading comments of users who complain that it’s not possible to use instant pace of a footpod without disabling auto calibration of gps…
Where is that discussion, do you have a link?
Its on every single Polar forum on facebook
correct (unless the autocalibrated value is good for you)
amazing they didn’t bump the hardware or glass… just the case
Behold the super-premium Vantage V, now sporting sapphire glass over the titanium shell!
Really? I can’t see any authoritative reference to sapphire glass instead of the Gorilla.
You´re right. He was being ironic in joking that soon a SUPER-PREMIUM Sapphire ed will supercede this old Titan ^^. Both Vantage V and VV Titan have Gorilla glass though. Cheers!
“That’s all folks, no Gorilla glass”
…but both Vantage V and Vantage V Titan most certainly has Gorilla glass. What it doesn´t have in either edition is sapphire glass.
On another note, can titanium casing influence GPS satellite reception differently than steel? Better…worse?
i’d cautiously suggest that steel has iron in it and is probably more dense but a materials scientist might give a more definitive view.
I´m usually really good at finding medical, nutritional (my occupation) and health-related data online but I don’t seem to have the engineering jargon to find an answer to this. Steel is worse than polymers but I couldn´t find anything on titanium and frankly, the texts were so incredibly boring to plough through. Master thesis on “Shielding and variable signal reception in micro-“…Zzzzzzorry but no lol. Hopefully, some researcher or someone in the wearable- or mobile business with know-how reading this can help us out.
yeah it’s one of those ‘obvious’ things that will inevitably turn out to be precisely the oppsite of what is ‘obvious’ #experts. as others will say tho, it’s just one part in the overall design
