Fitbit Charge 2 Heart Rate + Fitness Wristband, Black, Large

Ok, so at first I was really, REALLY hesitant about buying the Charge 2 because you never know what problems can arise with new, hot off the press tech. However, I’ve had wonderful experiences with Fitbit customer service in the past (as in “Hey, my thing stopped working” and they were all like “Sorry about that, here’s a new thing- no charge!”), so I feel confident that if anything does go awry, Fitbit will take care of their customers. So, I took the plunge and ordered it.It came today in the mail and I scurried off with it like Gollum and his ring…My precioussssssss!Oh where to begin! Let’s see- well it came in lovely, easy to open packaging. Opening up the box felt like I was arousing my Charge 2 from his slumber in his comfy, plastic bed. I immediately noticed that the teal color was more vibrant than its predecessor, and the larger screen gave it an all around sleeker look. The band is now longer, so if the large size from the old Charge was a bit big for you- go for the small with the Charge 2; I have tiny wrists myself, and I’m two notches away from the last ring on the inside! EDIT: I just realized my review was placed under the large size…my Charge 2 is a small. But large or small, only the band is different in length, NOT the screen!The charger was completely redesigned; the days of not having your Charge, well, CHARGE due to it slipping out are dead and gone. The new, blissfully longer charger clips onto the Charge itself, and as long as you align the hole in the charger with the button on the side of the Charge, you’re good to go (see picture for reference)! Just make sure you clip it from underneath, and not over the screen or else it won’t charge…not that I uh, made a silly mistake like that or anything. *cough*Setup could not have been easier. The entire process from taking it out of the box to having it fully synced and functional was less than ten minutes. Whoa. I was setting it up using the app on my Android phone, and I was expecting that it would need to be charged first but nope! It sprung to life and was ready to go! After it was all synced I checked the battery and saw it was at medium power- right out of the freaking box!Onto features…do you like lots of features? I like lots of features and the Charge 2 has ALL the flipping features you could possibly want.I feel like Fitbit has been personally keeping tabs on me and my current interests. I just recently got into breathing meditation and interval training, and when I heard that the Charge 2 was going to include both these features I was pretty much like, “Shut up and take my money!”After playing with the Charge 2 for about 30 seconds, I came to realize that when you want to choose a feature, for example the breathing exercise, after pushing the button on the side to get to that function, you then hold the button for a second to choose to start it. With the breathing exercise, it allows you to choose between a 2 or 5 minute breathing session. It works by having you breath in rhythm with a ring that expands and contracts on the screen, and it shows your breathing in and out at the bottom with a continuous little graph (see picture to clarify if this sounds wonky to you.) If it comes across as confusing don’t worry- Charge 2 guides you through it…it’s much more talkative (err, textative?) than the old Charge, and I like it!So for once I was actually excited to hit the hall of pain- uh, I mean the gym, so I could test out my new buddy here. First thing I did was the elliptical; in the past I avoided it because my old charge wouldn’t count it as steps. Now all you have to do is select the elliptical option from the workout menu on your charge 2, hold the button on the side and voila! Elliptical steps are now counted!Next I tried out the interval workout option! What’s extra awesome about this feature is that it’s customizable; the folks of Fitbit really outdid themselves with this one in my opinion. By going onto the app on my phone, I was able to set the intervals to one minute of workout, and two minutes of rest for a total of five sets. Then while I was on the treadmill, I went to the workout menu, chose interval training, and it started right away. Once the minute was up, Charge 2 gave me two little buzzes to let me know to switch to rest mode, and after two minutes gave me another two buzzes to pick it up again. The buzzes aren’t very strong, but I still felt them just fine.Then I went onto strength training, and selected weights from the menu (this is all via the charge 2, not the app on the phone). Now the way I strength train is 3 sets of 12 reps, and then a minute of rest in-between. I’m honestly not sure if that minute of rest affects the readings or not, but my guess is no- that Charge 2 calculates everything based on pulse readings. And speaking of pulse readings, it feels like they’ve improved the technology in that department as well!FYI- I have pretty low blood pressure due to hypothyroidism, so the readings below may seem off, but they’re accurate in my case. My resting heart rate is usually between 61 and 66 bpm (beats per minute)So that concluded my gym session. Upon looking at my readings later on, it was kind of neat to compare them. Now the weight training session showed that in 27 minutes I burned 99 calories and had 110 average of bpm. Now with the elliptical, I only did it for 10 minutes, burned 62 calories, and had a 130 average bpm going at a fast pace continuously. With the interval training on the treadmill (here’s where it gets interesting folks) for 15 minutes I burned 122 calories with a 148 average bpm. Despite having two minute rest periods several times, I still burned more calories and had a higher heart rate than the continuous workout on the elliptical. Interval training all the way! Although…I wonder if you could do interval training on the elliptical and still have the steps count. I’ll have to experiment with that… *EDIT* Yes you can in fact do interval training on the eliptical and have steps count!There’s still so much to try! The connected GPS looks like a pretty neat feature, and it’s a nice extra to include! I’m not much of a runner myself being bite sized, but you can still track location for other things like walking, biking and hiking. Then there’s call, text, and calendar notifications (adding the calendar was a great idea). You can also change bands now, so if you wear out your current band (like I did with my old Charge- bubbling issues anyone?) or just want a different look, you can switch them whenever your little heart so desires. Oh! And there’s lots of screen options that you can choose from like a dial watch, extra bold print, and having time/date/steps/heart rate all together (which is what I ended up choosing)- and that’s just to name a few!*EDIT* So they added a feature which shows your fitness level by going into the heart rate section of the app and then swiping left to get to that screen. I originally thought it was fitness test type thing, but I misunderstood. The app already calculates your fitness level for you based on several factors (resting heart rate, your bpm during exercises, and other information collected from your profile). So sorry for any confusion! No tests for you.Alas, there is but one problem I have encountered so far. I was walking while holding my phone in the hand that my charge 2 was on, and noticed that it didn’t count my steps. So after experimenting for a bit (holding up my hands like I was pushing an invisible grocery cart, though it probably looked more like I was pretending to be A zombie) I came to the conclusion that if your hand is held up flat (palm up or palm down) in midair, like when holding a phone…the charge 2 doesn’t register steps. However, it should be noted that when I put the charge 2 in workout mode, it DID count some of the steps, even when holding my phone, but it didn’t seem to accurately count them all. I guess the solution is don’t play on your phone while you walk? Or at least leave the hand with the Charge 2 on it by your side when playing Pokemon Go- you can play with one hand, right?Everything considered, this is truly an amazing piece of technology that is priced extremely fairly for all that it offers, including the best fitness app that is included at no extra charge. Thanks good guy Fitbit!In conclusion…This is the one fitness tracker…TO RULE THEM ALL!UPDATE: 9/20Yes yes, I know what you’re all thinking- how could I possibly make this exceedingly long review even better? MAKE IT LONGER!Battery lasted from Wednesday afternoon (after fully charging it) to Monday night. It should be called Fitbit doesn’t need to Charge all that often, amiright? Eh?Motivation Man! Every hour (just day hours, or you can customize which hours and days you want in the app) you don’t move (or hardly move), Charge 2 gives you a friendly little buzz, and the animated little Motivation Man (as I like to call him) says something cute on the screen like “Take me for a stroll?” or “97 more steps!” (to reach 250). Do it. Don’t let Motivation Man down.With the Fitness level tracker, my original score was placed in the good category and I was all happy that I was fitter than I thought. Well, the app suggests that if you want a more accurate reading, that you should go for a ten minute run outside with your Charge 2 synced to your phone for GPS tracking. So although I hate running more than kids who kick your seat continuously on a long flight, I did it. Upon looking at my fitness level thinking that my score was going to shoot up, it dropped down to fair, which is right after poor. Ouch. I mean in all fairness it’s accurate but still…ouch. Went from feeling fitter to bitter.What’s not accurate, however, is if you’re at the gym and your Charge 2 syncs with your phone app for gps tracking. A few times while I was on the treadmill or elliptical, the GPS kicked in and gave me crazy readings. Now don’ get me wrong- my step count wasn’t affected in any way, the app just showed me a map of the wacky, non-existent trail that went though multiple buildings and over a river. You can just delete it of course, orrrrrr you could show it off to your friends and make stuff up…like I always teleport over rivers when I work out, doesn’t everyone?The Fitbit app added a seriously impressive fitness game called Adventure challenge (it’s in the challenges section) where your step count is shown on an actual map, like Yosemite Vernal falls to start off with, and the more you walk, the more you travel along the trail. Along the way you come across markers, and when you reach them, it shows you where you are on the trail with gorgeous panoramic pictures (hold up your phone, slowly turn left and right, and the picture pans out either way). There are also random “gems” on the map, and when you click them they either have a fun fact, a health multiple choice quiz, or a health challenge (like do tricep dips on a chair for a minute). You can collect them and earn a badge…or not-completely optional. However, I personally am having a blast with it, and I’m sort of stunned that they’re including it in the app for free! It’s like having an expensive dinner with Fitbit and when the check comes, Fitbit is all like, “Hey, it’s cool. I got this,”…you sure do Fitbit. You sure do.

Fitness Tracker with Heart Rate monitor, E3 Activity Watch Step Walking Sleep Counter Wireless Wristband Pedometer Exercise Tracking Sweatproof Sports Bracelet for Android and iOS Black, EIISON

This is wonderful. The company “Eiison” takes the time to email the buyer with a quick YouTube site that shows the easy operation of this well valued Activity Watch. It amazed me all that it encompasses compared to the smart watches valued at hundreds of dollars more. The instruction leaflet is one of the best that I have seen showing pages with pictures and step by step description of each of the many options displayed on the watch face.The watch face is clear and ample, and the quick charging port works fast and is easy to clip on. Instructions even have the release of the wrist clasp so that there is no confusion.What a great ‘deal’ and idea for many a Christmas stocking stuffer!!!!

TOWABO Fitness Tracker with Heart Rate monitor E3S Activity Watch Step Walking Sleep Counter Wireless Wristband Pedometer Exercise Tracking Sweatproof Sports Bracelet for Android and iOS

I was really happy that is had a app for my iPhone. It was easy to download and i set my account up and paired the fitness tracker to my phone in under one minutes. This is my first time every having a Bluetooth Activity Fitness Tracker. On the app i can monitor my fitness activity like how many steps i take and how many calories i burn. I love how it can monitor my sleep.It will show you how many hours that you sleep also how many hours you spend in a deep sleep and how much time in a light sleep. It is very interesting to see what your sleeping habits are. I wish there was a way it could tape when you are talking in your sleep so you can see what kinds of weird things you are saying. I also wish there was a way i did not have to switch it to go to sleep mode or any of the other modes . I forgot to set it to the sleep more the other night and when i woke up i was sad i forgot to set it to that mode and i missed that whole night. This tracker has a bunch of other modes but i am still learning them as we speak.Oh i like this one it has a silent wake alarm that will only wake me up and not my boyfriend.It is also very easy to charge all you have to do is pop it out of the bracelet and stick it into a USB plug and your good to go. There are so many more things that are cool about this tracker. I would recommend getting this tracker i really love it.

Garmin vívofit 2 Bundle with Heart Rate Monitor, Black

This is my second fitness tracker. My first was a Fitbit Flex which I really liked and used for over 2 years. But I got tired of having to look at my iPhone or iPad every time I wanted an update on my steps beyond the little lights that designated 20, 40, 60, 80 or 100% of my goal which was made visible by tapping the little screen on the tracker. I looked first to the Fitbit line but none of the devices with displays were water resistant beyond rain and a few splashes. They are not safe to be taken into the shower or pool. Or worn when washing dishes. Or bathing the dog. (And certainly not bathing the cat!) Or cleaning a fish tank or any number of other things during the day that might involve more than a splash.So I looked at the available trackers with displays that were more water resistant (No tracker that I could find is completely waterproof.) The Garmin Vivofit 2 caught my eye because of its “always on” display that I don’t have to push a button to see unless it’s really dark and I need the backlight. It’s water resistant to 50 meters (about 164 feet) and it’s fine in the shower or pool. I want to be able to wear my tracker 24/7 and with the Vivofit I can.The Vivofit uses replaceable batteries that can last a year or more. The tracker takes two little lithium batteries which are included and installed. They are the CR1632 batteries and can be purchased on Amazon. This is really nice because I don’t have to remember to charge it every week. (Or leave it sitting in the charger when I leave the house.)There are several screens that you can cycle through by pressing the little button on the side of the tracker. Whatever screen you used last is where it will stay. There are screens for total steps, number of steps left in your daily goal, approximate calories burned, distance, the time (You can wear it as a watch) and the date. You can choose not to see some of these screens by unchecking them in the app. If you hold the button for a second or so, the backlight will come on for a few seconds. This is very handy at night when I’m in bed and want to see the time. The goals screen that I mentioned is set by Garmin. The Vivofit learns your current activity level and sets daily goals based on what you did the days before. The tracker and the app keep track of the number of days you’ve met your goals. Alternatively, you can set your own daily goals in the app. The goal number counts down so you can see throughout the day how many steps you have left to reach your goal.There is an alert, a little chirp, that sounds when you haven’t been active for an hour. You’ll also see a red line across the top of the tracker’s screen. After another 15 minutes there’s a second chirp and the red line grows another small segment as it does each additional 15 minutes that you aren’t moving. In order to get rid of the red line/lines, you have to get up and walk a couple hundred steps. The chirp sound is very faint and I usually miss it. There are so many other electronic beeps and sounds around our house with all the electronic devices, I don’t even notice those kinds of sounds anymore. But I do notice when that red line appears and I know it’ll only take a few minutes of walking to get rid of it, so more often than not, I do. And those steps all add up over the course of a day. For me, it’s really good motivation. You can turn the sound off in the app if you don’t want it going off in a meeting or something.Before I purchased my Vivofit I read a lot of reviews here on Amazon, complaining about the Garmin Connect and Connect Mobile apps. Garmin seems to have taken notice and responded with improvements and a very nice and easy to use app. I never saw the old one since I got my Vivofit after the old one was updated. It took a little while to figure out where everything was, but now I love it. It gives me more info than the Fitbit did and it’s easier to compare steps and other activities and see them all in one place. I can also customize the way it looks to some extent. The tracker has a timer for activities like swimming, cycling, weights, aerobics classes, etc. you can time them and there are places to add these to the app and compare those activities as well. I haven’t used those yet because I’ve become so obsessed with getting in my steps and increasing them each day. This also syncs with other apps such as myfitnesspal. I use that one but spend a lot more time with the Garmin app following step counts and challenges. If you enter calorie counts into myfitnesspal they will show up in the Garmin app.You also have the ability to hook up a heart rate monitor (sold separately) and track your heart rate while exercising in the app. I haven’t used it, so I can’t comment further on it.Besides being able to compare your own steps each day, you can connect with friends or join groups which you can look up within the app. The thing I’m really liking is joining a challenge. The challenges are a week long and Garmin puts you into a group of about 15 people who have similar step counts as you do. Each time you sync and then go to the Garmin Connect website, you can see others in your group and their steps increase throughout the day. It’s great motivation to move up higher in the list or discover another member who was behind you is now 300 steps ahead of you. I’ll walk quickly around my house at night just to get ahead! The tracker occasionally syncs on its own if you leave your Bluetooth on, or you can manually tell it to sync by pressing the button on the tracker that changes the screens. My tracker syncs right away about 95% of the time. The other times I might have to wait a few minutes and then try again. I’m guessing their servers are probably busy.This band has a sleep tracker that does an excellent job of tracking my sleep levels based on movement during the night. It automatically seems to know when I’ve gone to sleep and when I wake up. There is a place in the app to enter your usual hours of going to bed and waking up. But if I fall asleep earlier or later it has gotten it right every time so far.Changeable bands are a big thing for me. I like to be able to change the look of my Vivofit, to go with different outfits. The Garmin bands have the little locking clasp that locks with a quarter turn so there’s no way it could come undone by itself, even if you pulled on it. I’ve ordered a few 3rd party bands on Amazon that have a regular clasp that just pushes through both sections of the band, like the ones on the original Vivofit or the Fitbit. I’ve only had the regular clasp come undone twice with my old Fitbit and both times was pulling sleeves with tight cuffs backwards over the bands. I ordered my Vivofit 2 with a navy blue band and then ordered a set of three of the Garmin brand in black, white and gray. I also ordered a 3rd party band that was made for the original Vivofit but works just fine with the Vivofit 2. I don’t know if all of the original bands will work, but I have 3 more ordered that should be here tomorrow, so I hope they do. There are lots of choices of colors and patterns of bands so you don’t ever have to be bored with the look of your tracker.What about the accuracy of the Vivofit 2? When I first got the tracker I wore it on the same arm as my Fitbit and compared at the end of each day. I also carried my iPhone and used the step app. All three had different numbers by the end of the day. The Vivofit and iPhone recorded more steps than the Fitbit. The iPhone was in the middle. What I did was to go into the Vivofit app and do a custom setting for my stride length by measuring a distance outside and then counting my steps to determine how many steps I took in a known number of feet. I entered the distance and the number of steps and the Vivofit calculated my stride. After that the numbers were closer. I have counted hundreds of steps while I walked and it seems to be counting them exactly now. The place where I pick up extra steps is with arm movements. Typing doesn’t register, but waving my arm fast will. I wear it on my left (non-dominant) arm. Brushing my hair with my left hand will register some of the movement but not all. Driving in the car won’t register any. Repetitive movement up and down with my arm will count as a step with both trackers. It’s just the nature of the way they work. I feel that I’m getting a good, comparative idea of the number of steps that I’m taking from one day to the next.I will update this review after I’ve spent more time with this Vivofit, but right now I’m very happy with it. I’m more motivated to walk and move than I’ve ever been and at the end of the day I feel better for it.Update 1/16/16 – I’ve become totally involved in the Challenges on the Garmin Connect website. The competition is addictive! My weeklong challenge with 14 other people ended on Sunday night and my final rank was number #3. I had to wait until Monday at noon to find out for sure, that’s the deadline for everyone to sync in. I almost forgot about the side benefit of how much better I feel after getting in all that walking.

Polar FT7 Men's Heart Rate Monitor (Black / Silver)

BACKGROUND: Since buying my Garmin Forerunner 305, I found that I hardly scratched the surface in terms of taking advantage of its features. I was also disappointed that it only calculates calories burned if you are running outside. I know that this allows for a more accurate algorithm, but I workout in the gym 90% of the time. So I opted for the Polar FT7 as a simplified device that would give calories burned for all workouts.SETUP: There isn’t a lot to do here. When turning the device on it walks you through basic setup of date, time, and personal information such as age, height, weight, and gender. I wanted to verify that the WearLink unit and watch were able to communicate prior to going for my first workout so I connected the WearLink unit to the chest strap, wet the sensors, and put it on. The wrist unit began receiving heart rate data within a couple of seconds. Satisfied that everything would work OK, I put the watch and chest strap into my gym bag.USAGE: Since the wrist unit is a digital watch, you could use it as your primary watch since it doesn’t have an off button. However, I don’t think it is very visually appealing, and I do not plan to do this.The chest strap seems to be designed for right handed people. I say this because it only attaches on one side, and it felt natural to me. This is different than my Forerunner which had attachments on both sides of the strap to accommodate both lefties and righties.The buttons on the watch are fairly small and somewhat stiff. While I’ve gotten used to this, it almost gives it a bit of a cheap feel. This is merely a perception, but it is not one that I had with the Forerunner. That being said, using the FT7 is about as straightforward as you could ask for. After putting the wrist unit and chest strap on, simply push the middle button on the right to establish a connection between the two. When you are ready to begin training, push the button again to start recording your workout.During your workout, the top and bottom buttons on the right navigate the display between heart rate, calories burned, elapsed time and clock time, and exercise zone (fitness or fat burn based on heart rate). When you are done, press the bottom left button. You can then scroll between resume and stop and select your choice. Once you have stopped, the FT7 displays your summary stats that you can scroll through, and it saves the file with the date and timestamp of your workout.You can also review your workout history. While in the main time display, press either the up or down button on the right side. You will have a choice of “Settings” or “Data”. Selecting “Data” gives you access to week by week information. You can look at weekly summaries as well as data for a specific day. The unit stores up to 99 data files so this should hold 4-6 months of data for most people.If you need to change any of the information that you entered during setup, you simply choose “Settings”, and navigate to the appropriate place.I was curious how the calorie burn numbers would compare to those of the cardio machines at my gym. I was able to compare with a Precor Elliptical trainer, and I found that the numbers are fairly close. While they did not track identically, they usually came out within 20-30 total calories out of 600 in a 35 minute session. This gives me confidence that the numbers are reasonable, and that what it tells me for activities in other settings are close enough. I also noticed during my session on the Precor that the Elliptical picked up the heart rate from the WearLink unit. This should be the case for any cardio equipment that is labeled for use with Polar technology.I found the FT7 very easy to use. If you can navigate menu driven software such as Windows Explorer or Windows Media Player you should have no trouble with this device.CONCLUSION: If you want an easy to use heart rate monitor that tracks calories burned, this is a great place to start. It does what I expect it to do in a straightforward manner. If your needs are not beyond what I have described, there is no reason to spend more money on features that you will not use. If you have questions that I have not addressed, please feel free to ask in the comments section below.

Polar A360 Fitness Tracker with Wrist Heart Rate Monitor (Black, Medium)

This is my third Polar device (I started with a Loop and also have an A300). I’ve used a chest strap with a different device and just don’t like them…yuck. When I heard Polar was coming out with a wrist-based heart rate tracker I was all in. I am in love with this device! The esthetics of it are lovely – sleek, refined, simplistic and good looking! I get many compliments on it. Since it is sleek it doesn’t really look like an activity tracker and its great to wear to formal outings. As for the nitty gritty of how it works, the touch color screen is easy and intuitive to use. It functions the same as my A300 in the sense that you see your activity stamps (but I love how they line up on the A360). It only has one button that is used for everything – setting up the device, training, heart rate, daily activity, date/time, etc. Unlike the A300, the one button is hidden and blends in without sticking out (see amazon images to better understand). I bought my device in December as a Christmas present to myself but wanted to hold off on writing a review until I had used it for awhile. For the reviewers who say it doesn’t work, download and read the user manual from the Polar website. The user manual clearly details how to wear the device for HR training….you wear it just above your wrist bone on your nondominant hand, tight enough to be secure but not too tight to cut off circulation. If you wear it too low (too close to you wrist/hand like a bracelet) or too loose it will give false HR readings for your training sessions. I tighten mine when I’m training and then loosen it when I’m not training. I like that I’m able to change the HR from a number to a percentage as the percentages is what I prefer. I used the Sizing Tool on Polar’s website to determine my wristband and I ordered the device in a Medium Black, although I really think I could have gotten a Small (I’m a 6.3″ wrist) but I’m happy with the Medium band, and recently ordered a Blue band direct from Polar which I’ll use for the Spring/Summer. I have not had any issues with fastening the band, band stretching, device falling out of the band, or the prongs not fastening properly or ripping the band. I’m not super gentle with it, but I don’t use a heavy hand either when fastening or unfastening. I keep mine in “do not disturb” night function to only allow viewing of my training HR when I’m in training which also preserves my battery life. Polar released an update in December or January which resolved the light feature lighting up at night so that is no longer a problem as originally described in the earlier post-release reviews. Each training activity is a pink stamp detailing your activity (i.e., biking, walking, running, treadmill, yoga, etc.), calories, duration, etc.. The activities come pre-set but Polar allows you to customize and set up to 20 training activities via the Polar website (I wish they allowed up to 25 training activities). This is also where you can adjust whether you want your HR measured in numbers or percentages. This device tracks your training activity (i.e., circuit, weight lifting, walking, etc.), steps, distance, sleep. Polar website continues to offer great features for reviewing monthly, weekly, and/or daily assessments of your training and you can do all kinds of reports as well as customize your own. The detailed reports and data upload are easy. You can view the heart rate zones to visualize whether you’re hitting your target HR or discover areas to improve. I discovered some activities I was doing just weren’t getting my HR in the zone I wanted (although I thought I was) but now thanks to A360 I’m hitting my HR targets! The new Sport wheel and Training Benefits wheels summarize your training session in pie chart format which is nice. The sync with the Polar Flow app has never been problematic with my Android (Samsung Galaxy 7 device). There is also a “get up and move” notification when you’ve been sitting too long. The sleep tracking is automatic so you don’t have to do anything for it to track your sleep. Polar just came out with a recent update where you can view activity on the A360 during training (I think it stays on during your entire training session) but I’ve not used it since I believe it will eat up my battery. Mine is set to allow me to view my training HR with a quick flick of my wrist during a training session which works perfectly for me.There are two things I would love to see Polar include in a future update for their products – 1. They really need to show on both the device, app and the Activity Summary on the Polar Flow website the cumulative percentage of fat calories burned. You can view fat calories burned in an activity stamp but there is no cumulative total if you do multiple activities. Currently the device and app only shows a cumulative total of metabolic calories burned. Unfortunately, you have to go to the Polar Flow website and then go into each individual activity to see the percentage of fat calories burned for each activity – there is no cumulative total of fat calories burned – which is quite frustrating! You should be able to view cumulative totals for both metabolic calories and percentage of fat calories burned in your Activity Summary (daily, weekly, or monthly) on the website as well as on the device and the mobile app.. 2. Currently you can set up training targets/results for distance but you can’t set a target or goal for daily steps. I would like Polar to expand the training target feature, or create one for steps, so you can set a daily step goal. That shouldn’t be that difficult to do. I see Fitbit posts on Facebook that show their step target and whether it was met or not met. If Fitbit can do it, Polar should certainly be able to do the same. I’d like a visual bar so that I can see that I’m at xyz% of my daily step goal on my A360 device. I’m hopeful both of these features will be available in a future A360 update, as well as for the A300 and Loop.All in all I’ve been very pleased with my A360 and really love it! Polar is a top brand for training and remains a market leader. At a little under $200 it is a bit pricey but for me it was well worth it to see HR without using a chest strap. I still alternate among my three Polar devices but this is the one I always use now when training. If you have an A300 this is significantly less bulky and much sleeker for business or formal attire since it looks more like a watch. I’ve even had people ask me if it is the Apple watch!!! My battery lasts a long time unless I do two or three different trainings per day such as walking, HIIT, yoga (but I love seeing all those pretty activity stamps lined up!). I have never used the notification feature (I personally don’t need to be that connected!) but imagine it would be beneficial for many. I don’t need GPS but for this price point I think a GPS option should have been included. I highly recommend this product if you are looking for a wrist-based HR tracker as an alternative to using a chest strap (you can still use the A360 with Polar’s H7 chest strap if you want). I truly think you will be pleased with this product.
