Track Your Training with the Polar V650 Bicycle Computer

Track Your Training with the Polar V650 Bicycle Computer:

The Polar V650 bicycle computer is one of the most popular and successful products from Polar. It was introduced in 2010. The Polar V650 is a GPS bicycle computer which allows users to track their physical activity while they ride. The device measures your speed, distance traveled, calories burned, elevation gain/loss and much more.

You can even record audio clips of your rides so you can listen back at any time. The V650 is available in two models – the basic model (Polar V650 Basic) and the advanced model (Polar V650 Advanced).

In addition to its use as a bike computer, the Polar V650 can also be used as a navigation tool. For example, it can tell you how far away a place is or where you are on a map. The V650 works well with both Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.

You may have noticed that the Polar V650 uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with your smartphone or tablet. This means that if you’re riding in a car, the phone will automatically connect to the bike computer when it detects nearby Bluetooth devices such as headphones or speakers. This could be quite dangerous as you may get into a car accident while making or answering a call. You can avoid this problem by disabling the Bluetooth feature on your phone or tablet.

Polar V650 Navigator:

Like other types of GPS navigators, the Polar V650 allows you to browse a list of locations (cities, towns, streets etc) and choose one that you want to navigate to. To find a location, you can either search for it by name or browse a list of locations.

The V650’s interface allows you to browse the map and find the location you want to go to. You can use your finger to scroll around the screen and you can zoom in and out of the map by pinching and spreading your fingers. You can also adjust the map’s orientation by twisting your wrist.

To find your current location, simply tap the “Where am I?”


While using the GPS navigator, you can view useful data such as speed, time and distance remaining. You can also save locations so you can easily navigate to them in the future.
