What’s the Difference?

Polar Ignite vs Vantage V vs M600 Features Compared

  1. Polar Ignite vs Vantage V vs M600: Design

  2. While each of these three is a decent looking smartwatch, the Ignite no doubt has the best design that defines what a fitness smartwatch should be. It has the least weight, while also having the slimmest design that thus, makes it the most befitting wear for sport activities.

    The thin stainless bezel also adds to making the Ignite standout, and going by the design and size of the Ignite, it’s the best choice for women.

    The Vantage V, however, has the most sophisticated design in the place of a stainless steel case that’s more durable than the glass fiber reinforced polymer that houses the other two.

  3. Polar Ignite vs Vantage V vs M600: Waterproof Rating

  4. Each of these three is water resistant, however the M600 with IPX8 rating is water resistant up 1.5 meters, but we don’t recommended it for deep water activities.

    The V and Ignite rated 3ATM are water resistant up to 30 meters which makes this two swim-proof. So, you can wear either of these to the pool or perhaps the ocean.

  5. Polar Ignite vs Vantage V vs M600: Media/Storage

    There’s also the Running program that offers personal and adaptive training plans that’s tailored to your goals, plus swim tracking features that detect your swimming style.

    However, the Ignite offers the FitSpark daily training guide that offers ready-made daily workouts to match your recovery, readiness and training history, and serene breathing exercise that helps return your body to calm after a stressful day. These features will be coming to the V in future updates.
