Are there any people that can tell me how accurate the VO2 max reading is.

 

 

 

I would like to know if your VO2 max are higher than 70 (on my polar) is it good

 

and what will a top athlete's reading be (like a Bary Stander)

 

 

 

Its a new gadget that my wife bought me and I'm playing with it but don't have a clue what all this means

If you go for a VO2 max test at a lab it normally is much lower than the reading you get on your polar.

No offence but Polar is far from accurate in this regard, minus about 20-30 off that.

Polar is very good, infact very good but no monitor of such can tell a person their V02max.

 

 

 

You need to be hooked up to a machine like this poor motocross chap:
