Polar Showcases its Award Winning V800 Smart Watch during the First-Ever Iron Distance Triathlon at CES 2015
Though smartwatches have started to become mainstream and there is also the need for manufacturers to speed up innovative introductions because all these devices look pretty much the same. However, there can at least be something more attractive in the way you present your device to the public and polar has done exactly that. One of the leaders in heart rate, fitness and sport technologies has recently featured Olympian and professional triathlete Tim Don in order to demonstrate its new Polar V800 at the CES event at the start of next year.
The Polar V800 is the company’s multisport training computer and will be shown off along with a special Iron Distance Triathlon on Wednesday, January 7th, 2015. During the event, Don is expected to engage in multiple sports activities to show the use of the device. He is going to swim 2.4 miles, cycle 112 miles and run 26.2 miles in under 10 hours. The Triathlon, which is scheduled to kick off at the Venetian Casino Resort’s outdoor lap pool, will be continued at the Las Vegas Boulevard as Don will ride his bike towards the north and through this route he’s going to finish off at the Polar booth located at the Sands Expo (booth #73921). The remaining 112 miles will be completed here on his CompuTrainer stationary bike trainer.
The event just hasn’t ended yet because one activity is left. After the ride is complete, Don is going to continue with his marathon run on a Life Fitness treadmill located within the booth. The race will be completed with a short run from the Sands to the Las Vegas Convention Center and will cross the finish line located in the Central Plaza.
Herb Baer, Polar USA President, says “This year we decided to put on an event at CES that could truly show the power of the V800 in action. We’re excited to have an elite athlete like Tim Don give CES attendees a very real-time demonstration of how an athlete uses our products during intense training sessions and races.”
