Polar Ignite 3 – Next-gen fitness watch revealed by app code?
The Ignite 3 might be Polar’s next sports watch – at least if the Polar Flow App is to be believed. While doing some research on the latest Polar Flow app, a Reddit user found some information indicating that Polar is preparing the watch’s release.
Besides the name of the sports watch, two features have been listed that will be highlighted on YouTube in due course:
- Custom Watch Face
Customizable watch faces have never been something Polar did focus on. Although you can choose from a limited number of analog and digital watch faces and determine an accent color, it neither was really customizable nor convincing.
Unfortunately, there is not much information in the description of the app code about what can be expected from the future feature. However, it would not be worth mentioning if Polar sticks to what the current sports watches have to offer today.
My hope is that it’ll be possible to choose from additional information and metrics that then will be projected on the watch face.
- Audio Guidance
The second feature is called “Audio Guidance”. Sounds a bit like the Ignite 3 can send metrics and guidance to paired headphones. If that’s the case, then it would be a pretty big innovation for Polar. Whether this means that the Polar Ignite 3 can also store and play music remains to be seen. Such a feature would suit the Ignite 3 – being a fitness watch in the first place – very well.
Because not much can be read from the app code, the above contents should be considered speculations. As soon as more concrete information emerges, you will find it here.
Polar Ignite 2 - fitness watch with potential
Polar launched the Ignite 2 in spring 2021, creating a mid-range model for sports and fitness enthusiasts.
In terms of features for sports and fitness, the Polar Ignite 2 is quite complete, but there is room for improvement. Especially the touch display has been criticized a lot, as it did not react quite as precisely and quickly as expected.
Availability and prices
Despite the first information popping up on the internet, neither a release date, a price, nor a list of features is available yet. In addition, there is no information about a new model at the FCC and hardly any rumors so far. The Ignite 3 was mentioned in the metadata of Polar’s Brazilian website, but without offering further information about the model.
I think that more information will be available in the weeks to come.
