>The Polar M460 is a GPS bike computer with an advanced capacity for performance measuring, Polar Smart Coaching, and support of the Strava Live segments.
In combination with the Polar Smart Coaching functions as well as the support to the Strava Live segments, the Polar bike computer M460 (HR) is designed for performance-oriented, ambitious sportsmen.
Thanks to the integration possibility of external Apps like Strava, Trainingpeaks, Stages Cycling or RotoR, which all of them are highly appreciated among pros, the performance analysis can be done more precisely. Furthermore, the trips with the Strava Live segments do not only increase the fun factor but they are also a great motivation. Because Strava Live segments offer the possibility to compete live against the best in the respective segment while being on the road. How does that work?
A segment stands for a certain track segment, which has been created or compiled by your own or by another sportsman. Most often it is a track segment of a special kind like ascents, hills, sprints or laps. Highscore lists of the sportsmen are given for every segment, which you can use for competing by running or cycling. In the so-called leaderboard or in your personal data, you get practical information about the covered segments (length of the segment, average ascent, altimetres, etc.) as well as your training performances per segment (average heart rate, average speed, training time, etc.). These are displayed in comparison to the performances of other sportsmen, team colleagues or friends.
That's why the comparability or the idea of competition are the special feature of Strava Live Segments, which can also be used with the Polar bike computer M460 (HR) now.
