Polar has announced the launch of a new fitness tracker, the Polar A360 and the device comes with a built in heart sensor, although this one is worn on your wrist, unlike the company’s signature heart rate monitors which are worn around you chest.
The Polar A360 comes with color LCD display, as we can see from the photos, it looks quite similar to the Microsoft Band.
“The key to achieving Polar’s well-known accuracy relies on how data is recorded by the sensor, and then how it is interpreted. We developed our own algorithm for optical heart rate monitoring and optimized the hardware design to ensure the A360 meets the same accuracy and quality standards that Polar customers have come to expect,” says Marco Suvilaakso, Global Product Director at Polar. “Polar created the first heart rate monitor, and 38 years later we continue to be the trusted industry standard.”
The latest wearable from Polar goes beyond daily activity tracking to also provide personalized training guidance and motivation to help users meet their fitness goals. The A360 offers the company’s unique Smart Coaching features such as Activity Guide and Activity Benefit, which provide practical daily activity target suggestions and explain how activities affect the user’s health.
