This nerdiest smartwatch coaches you on how to fuel yourself to keep your body from crashing

from Wired

Ultimately, the Grit X feels more like a fun thought experiment than a fully baked watch.

Ultimately, the Grit X feels more like a fun thought experiment than a fully baked watch. It was fun to try and push myself to trigger the fueling reminders, but especially during the week, I’m way more likely to run 30- to 60-minute trail runs where maps are much more necessary than snacks or water. Still, I love the Polar Flow training app. It comes with a bunch of fun, possibly even useful features, and most importantly, it’s much, much cheaper than a comparable Garmin.

It’s a superbly easy to use sports watch and has some unique features, such as running power estimation and automatic food intake alerts. Plus, Polar Flow offers a ton of analysis and is presented in a much clearer, more attractive way than Garmin Connect, in my opinion. At the price, the Polar Grit X is definitely worth a look. It’s an excellent all-rounder.

Polar’s first outdoor-ready multisport watch built for endurance junkies

from Stuff

If you’re an urban dweller who occasionally ventures into the wild for longer endurance adventures, the Grit X packs a lot of strong features for the price.

The Polar Grit X offers a lot. It’s a watch with a serious package of multisport-tracking and recovery features in a pleasingly simple, lightweight design and for a very, very competitive price tag. And if you’re a runner who’s making the move from marathon to trail, you do occasional ultras or off road adventures, or you’re an Ironman athlete who needs help with fuelling, then this could be a great tool. However, if you’re a seasoned off-roader, trail runner, hiker or biker the tempting headline features don’t deliver the depth to rival some of the more expensive, but more capable, outdoor options.

A solid sports watch

from Pocket-lint

As a sports watch option for the lovers of the outdoors, the Grit X does a decent job of it, but there’s certainly room for some of its more unique features to grow. Hopefully they will.

The best watch Polar has made to date

Polar largely isn’t trying to compete purely on features here. They’ve found a rough balance between useful new functionality and keeping the price reasonable. And the tweaks they need aren’t substantial, but rather minor feature refinements that can easily happen quickly. And all of which ignores the fact that if you’re looking for a triathlon watch, this is just as capable with full sensor support as anything else at that price point – or even slightly above it.
