Polar’s next watch could run WearOS – and that would be bad news for Apple

Polar watches are generally very good running and triathlon devices, but they are very stripped down when it comes to looks and functionality.

With excellent running stats and GPS credentials, they can compete with Garmin and Apple in our list of the best running watches, but their lack of functionality outside of sports keeps them from being serious rivals to devices from Apple and Samsung, and the Google Pixel Watch, in the lifestyle space. They don’t run third-party apps or offer much connected functionality beyond the basic notifications.
