Amazon's Prime Day 2019 sale is in full swing and if you've been after a seriously hardcore sports watch, the Polar Vantage V with H10 HRM sensor has dropped below £300. That saves you over £200 on the multisports device.

You can pick up one of Polar's latest watches for £275, down from the usual price of £364.37 giving you a saving of £204. When you consider that the Vantage V goes for £439 on Polar's website, that's a seriously good deal.

If you need a rundown of the keys specs, the Vantage V (successor to the Polar V800), can track 130 different sports, promises 40 hours of battery life using GPS and heart rate and features an always-on display. It's also includes Polar's new Precision Prime HR tech and is the first watch to offer the ability to track running power from the wrist without additional accessories.

In our review, we scored it a solid 3.5/5 at its original price, praising it for the raft of data metrics and training features it serves up along with a strong heart rate accuracy performance. We did knock it for some questionable data we picked up in our testing and some missing features, although those absent features have now made their way to the watch.

It still impressed us enough to include it in our rundown of the best running watches, largely because of its wrist-based heart rate monitoring skills and for offering a more attractive design that its predecessor the V800.

If you want in on this deal you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member. You can take out a 30-day free trial if you're not already signed up.
