Some consumers know Polar for its Polar M600 Android Wear-powered smartwatch that some say provides 2 days of battery life (exceptional considering the average battery life of Android Wear-powered smartwatches), but Polar also makes fitness/activity trackers. The Polar A360 had a lot to commend it, such as two weeks of battery life for fitness tracking and the ability to send and receive health information to and from Polar Club instructors, but there was just one problem: the heart rate monitoring was only designed for workouts, not for rest and relaxation. You could only track heart rate when doing physical exercise, meaning that the user couldn't gain an overall sense of health because heart rate monitoring excluded 98% of his or her day. That all changes with Polar's new A370 fitness tracker.
The new Polar A370 fitness tracker now comes with continuous HR monitoring, allowing you to track your heart rate 24/7. You even get sleep tracking technology for bedtime so that it can tell you if you rested well or tossed and turned constantly throughout the night. Apart from these new features, the Polar A370 includes the usual steps and calories, physical exercises such as jogging and running, and the Polar Club coach instructors return to provide ways to help you get the most out of your workout. Water resistance also makes a return here, which isn't a surprise for a device designed to track your workouts in the elements (including rain).
You can pre-order the Polar A370 from the company's website for $179.95, and delivery won't occur until early June 2017.
