Still busy packing over here. If you missed the last post, I’m moving to the US soon. I’ll be reviewing products and services in the states starting next week!! Looking forward to it! I kind of love new beginnings. She’s undergoing a big project right now too so I may be reviewing on her asphalt paving service in Columbia soon enough! I’ll be coming to a new home with a beautiful new driveway…hopefully!
For now, I’d like to review a product I’ve had for about 6 months now. It’s the Polar A360 fitness band.
I love this band. It has all kinds of amazing features. First off, it’s waterproof!! I shower with it, swim with it, wash dishes with it – I love that I don’t have to worry about water. It’s been getting wet for 6 months and still going strong!
Second, it has a built-in heart rate monitor so that you don’t have to wear one of those annoying bands around your chest. The A360 can deliver on the spot BPM readings.
The polar A360 has a beautiful touch screen display. I love the sleek yet simple look of it. It’s bright for night time but you can still see the screen fine during the day. Display details can be chosen to compliment your liking. You can have a clock face, a vertical time, a horizontal time, a military time – lots of options. People think I’m wearing an apple watch but no, it’s just my fitness band. It has settings for running, walking, group exercise, strength training, sleep tracking and more. It also keeps track of the calories you’ve burned. The screen responsiveness works really well too…even when you’re wet.
It also gives you smart phone notifications. You can see when a message comes in or a call or email. But as far as the messages go, you can only see a blip. You have to grab your phone to respond. But at least you can see if you need to take that message or call though.
It syncs up with MyFitnessPal’s app. I love that app and I love that I can keep track on my caloric intake and the band will tell it how much I’ve burned after exercise and deduct it from my daily count.
Charging is pretty easy. The back of the face has a clip off section that allows you to plug the charger in. I wear it 24/7 and only need to charge it once a week if not less.
Lastly, there’s an inactivity alert that tells you when you need to start moving. I work at my computer all day and it reminds me every hour or so. At the end of the day, you see all your activity and inactivity.
A360 isn’t the best heart rate tracker out there as far as accuracy goes, but overall I’d recommend this device to anyone looking for a sleek, comfortable and waterproof fitness tracker.
