Polar Loop Activity Tracker

Polar Loop is the smarter 24/7 activity tracker. It provides guidance and motivational feedback to help you increase your daily activity. All you have to do is wear the smart bracelet on your wrist and all of your activity- including cycling and swimming- is captured. At the tap of a button, Polar Loop shows the time, your total steps, calories burned, daily activity goal and tips to reach it – all on a display of 85 LEDs. Living an active lifestyle has never been this fun and easy!

The smarter activity tracker

Take the stairs. Ride the waves. Walk to the store. Polar Loop tracks all the healthy choices you make during the day and shows how they benefit your overall health. Its unique technology accurately tracks five different levels of activity and can tell the difference between light intensity walking vs. running. This means you get a more complete picture of your daily movement. When working out, you can even add a Polar H6 or H7 Bluetooth® Smart heart rate sensor for accurate heart rate so you can get credit for indoor cycling classes, pushing a jogging stroller and more!

Here’s how it works

The Polar Loop system includes the Polar Loop activity tracker, the free Polar Flow app and Polar Flow web service. After your initial set up on Polar Flow, a daily activity target is customized for you based on your personal info and global physical activity recommendations. As you move throughout the day, Polar Loop will display an instant view of your activity data including: cumulative steps, calories burned and your daily activity goal bar. To help you reach your activity target Polar Loop displays practical guidance like ‘walk for 50 minutes’ or ‘jog for 20 minutes’. For even more motivation, set inactivity alerts via your smartphone and the Polar Flow app.

Follow your achievements: on your wrist. on the web. on your smartphone.

Polar Loop connects to the new Polar Flow web service that automatically syncs via Bluetooth Smart. These free services provide additional analysis and guidance, including illustrative graphs that show cumulative daily activity and periods of inactivity. Check the Polar Flow web service often to see how all your small choices and daily habits can make a world of difference.

Good Activity Monitor – Feel the need to leave this review First of all I purchased this directly from Polar because I wanted it as soon as possible. I also purchased the H6 chest strap (wish I would have gotten the H7 for equipment). Setting this thing up was very easy. The button and scrolling through the menu is intuitive and easy.I’ve owned a Jawbone Up (for 5 months and have replaced it 3 times now). There were a few things that I liked about the Up but here’s why I chose the Polar Loop:1. I only want to wear one thing on my left wrist–I need a watch, this foots the bill. I wish it had the date but I’m happy with it.2. Like that I don’t have to plug it into the phone jack on the iphone (4S) for it to sync. No little cap to lose.3. I can quickly check my progress with a couple punches of the button. Instant feedback.4. Thing I like most about it is that it works well with my HR monitor. Sometimes I take long walks–when I don’t have time for that I like to do an elliptical or jog. By…

If you know what you’re doing this is 5 star First, don’t buy this unless you’re getting the H6 (for iPhone) or H7 chest strap. This review is based on using the Loop and chest strap. Currently the price for both can be had for about $150 on Amazon if you hold out for a sale. Considering the price of the Nike Fuelband at $150 and the Fitbit Force at $130, the chest strap for the Loop is a no-brainer and must have all at once.Why? because the Fitbit Force and Nike Fuel Band units will never use heart rate data, a deal-breaker for a legit exercise tracker. A $130-150 pedometer like the Fitbit and Fuel band are simply too expensive in my opinion if they exclude heart rate tracking. At $150 and higher you’re well into heart rate monitor pricing and well past e-pedometers.Let’s talk about sleep. Some have opined that the Fitbits are better for this. Total nonsense. If you’re using the chest strap, the Loop provides *minute by minute* tracking of your sleep. You can even see if you experience PAC and PVC’s during deep…

Only activity tracker with HR data for workouts I’m a Polar fan who trains and uses Polar heart rate monitors for my running, cycling, swimming, hockey and other exercises. I was looking for something that would track my everyday activities outside of exercises. The premise is simple, it calculates your basal metabolic rate based on gender,weight, height and age and estimates your movements based on accelerometers.The primary measurements it will provide on the unit are:- number of steps- a required level of low/moderate/high intensity activities to meet the daily recommended activity goal- number of calories burned as the day progresses- time of dayThis does not sound much more than your average pedometer but things get more fun an interesting when you upload your data to Polar Flow and you start using a Bluetooth Smart HR transmitter when exercising.Once the data is uploaded it will show your daily activity level in 5 zones (laying down, sitting, standing, walking,…
