3
24-Nov-18Bug%HR does not show in all activity views when configured in sports profile (e.g. HR display in phased target screen)Note it does show as %HR in HR only screen
4
34-Nov-18FeatureAlarm icon shows in watch face on weekend even when only set for Monday to FridayThis was standard for V800 but not in M430
5
44-Nov-18BugGeneral readability & brightness

Concerns with brightness of full back-light and half back-light in all conditions

In full daylight if watch face falls into shadow it can be very difficult to read even with backlight as ambient light 'overcomes' the backlight

Also general readability of fonts (thickness etc)

Note other comments regarding adjustablity of back-light & auto-activation | Need to introduce greater controls

It may be that there are variations in brightness across different hardware - some are finding it acceptable

There have been some improvement made to 'button-activated' backlight in release 1.2.3 with a roadmap of further controls / enhancements to come.

Symbols for heart rate, gps and stride sensors are not readable. Fill in the symbols instead of changing the outline color, make it flash or use some other UI language. Also clearly indicate if strap is used or not (like the symbols on the M430)

Brightness of display: introduce user selection, some of us prefer brightness over battery longevity. Also introduce the ability to turn it off (during night for example).

Overall comment on colours and readability: given the low light intensity, using non-contrast colors is not ideal. Perhaps use a more contrast oriented color scheme. applicabelt o all screens that use colors (time left in target, heart rate, power, etc). Although the colour branding and compatibility with Flow is understandable, reading the watch is very different to FLow on a phone or a computer.
6
54-Nov-18BugGPS Tracking requires tuning.

Observing non-ideal tracks & spikes in pace when moving under structures
7
64-Nov-18BugSome unexpected outcomes when synching watch to phone appData appears to be synching ok but watch reports a failure to synch
8
75-Nov-18FeatureIn-training menu found on previous watches (e.g. turning back-light on for activity duration, ability to skip through phases of planned target)Highly desirable feature
9
85-Nov-18FeatureAbility to turn off movement activated back-light especially during sleeping hours but at any time (e.g. taking a shower, driving) Can become annoying to owners and partners when trying to sleep at night - especially people trying to hide the fact they have bought a new watch :-)
10
95-Nov-18FeatureAbility to change volume of audio alerts in normal watch mode | e.g. change beeps to vibration alerts. A must when notifications are released.
11
107-Nov-18FeatureProvide detailed lap information at the end of an activity or in activity history on watch.I have seen reports where greater lap detail is on Polar’s roadmap
12
117-Nov-18BugSleep function does not record consistently | i.e. sometimes missing entire sleep record
13
1210-Nov-181.2.3BugWatch crash | auto pause 'jitter' observed (i.e. flicking on & off) during GPS activity, ultimately resulting in watch restart message & loss of session dataBug is repeatable
14
1310-Nov-181.2.3FeatureAdd menus that were available on previous watches (e.g. My Day, Diary, Favourites)
15
1410-Nov-181.2.3FeatureAdd button lock capability during activities | e.g. cycling it is easy to depress buttons with hand | and in watch mode
16
1510-Nov-181.2.3FeaturePhased targets with power zone as the key target
18
1711-Nov-181.2.3FeatureEnable manual calibration of the altimeter
19
1811-Nov-181.2.3FeatureEnable configurable fields in auto-lap & auto-pause screen(s)
20
1911-Nov-181.2.3BugInconsistent behaviour still being observed with oHR. E.g. sudden jump in HR during an activity & general poor readingsSome observe oHR reading is too low overall (up to 20-30 bpm off) during training impacting many flow-on metrics or very erratic readings | POLAR this is becoming a major concern
21
2011-Nov-20181.2.3FeatureAdd battery intelligence. How much charge left on battery, how much time left before recharge required. Notification at start of activity how long battery will last.Similar to capability in Suunto S9
22
2113-Nov-181.2.3FeatureAbility to take pace from foot pod when calculating power in an activity
23
2214-Nov-181.2.3FeatureAbility to calibrate external footpods and internal accelerometer
24
2314-Nov-181.2.3BugSwim data is incorrect. (km should be in metres) Pace should be in min/100metre (or yards) |
Request for metrics number of laps, strokes/lap & SWOLF
Request for swimming drill mode
25
2414-Nov-181.2.3FeatureAdd resting HR graph for past seven daysResting HR for past week screen, alternatively lowest HR during sleep, resting HR, max HR as on Flow.
26
2514-Nov-181.2.3FeatureAdd ability to toggle on/off seconds in digital watch face
27
2614-Nov-181.2.3FeatureAdd ability to configure tap to turn on full back light or half back light in watch mode or option for tap in training mode
28
2714-Nov-181.2.3FeatureAbility to directly sync Polar Balance with watchVery contentious :-)
29
2814-Nov-181.2.3FeatureRequest for numerous additional data fields (e.g. last lap, temperature, SWOLF, number of swim laps, strokes/lap)
30
2915-Nov-181.2.3FeatureAbility to select satellites used for location & speed. (e.g. GPS, Glonass, GPS + Glonass)
31

451-Dec-181.2.3FeatureAbility to invert colour scheme in sports mode
47
461-Dec-181.2.3BugWhen training is deleted in FLOW the training reappears when watch is synched because it is not possible to delete training from watch
48
471-Dec-181.2.3BugFactory reset of watch loses all orthostatic test data and questions. Restarting this component of recovery pro. Can this be backed up to FLOW and resent to watch after restart?
49
481-Dec-181.2.3BugHave general activity (non-training) contribute to training load and recovery, similarly to how M430 does it (and it works very well). It cannot be that 2-300% daily activity has zero impact on overall training and recovery.
50
491-Dec-181.2.3FeatureImplement meaningful training load and recovery metrics for strength training (weightlifting, bodyweight training, crossfit, etc) as these activities definitely contribute to training load and recovery and merit being properly monitored. In addition, you ahve used these forms of training in your marketing material.
51
501-Dec-181.2.3FeatureHR data for day (general, sleep, max) in graphical format, as on Flow.
52
511-Dec-181.2.3FeatureSwiping gestures: please make full use of both horizontal (which is used for changing watch faces) and vertical gestures. One example could be to break up the long texts into more manageable screens next to, rather than on top of, each other.
53
521-Dec-181.2.3FeatureIn phased workouts provide a preview of the next phase before the current has ended.
it happened to me lot of times that I had to wait 5 seconds (that phase summary screen) to see if I should sprint another interval or its already the cool down phase.
"it happened to me lot of times that I had to wait 5 seconds (that phase summary screen) to see if I should sprint another interval or its already the cool down phase"
54
