Polar Releases Update For V800 Watch, Supports GoPro Cameras

We have already talked about a partnership between Polar and GoPro, but at the time, some things were not yet ready. Now, Polar has released a software update for the V800 sports watch, which means you will be able to control GoPro Hero 5 action camera straight from the wrist.

Connecting the device to a GoPro HERO5 camera will be done using Bluetooth and users will be able to use the V800 for starting and stopping video recording, taking pictures, changing between the HERO5's different camera modes, and displaying different pieces of detailed information about camera stats. At the moment, only the HERO5 is supported.
