Polar just announced their latest and smartest product to be released at CES 2014 on January 6 — the V800. The video at the Polar V800 website shows Frederik Van Lierde swim, Ironman world champ, swim, run and bike with the V800. I’m assuming it’s a watch that will monitor your HR in water, track your running and cycling cadence with the footpod.

We should know more in a few days. Check out the video at PolarV800 website.
