"accurate heart rate and a firm grip on your wrist!"

Features


The POLAR A360 is a water resistant(30 metre max depth) fitness band, which will allow you to use it in the pool. It has a heart sensor located just below and needs to touch your skin in order to track your heart rate, other than that it has external sensors also, the use of which I will explain shortly. The battery life given in the manual is 12 hours but after I purchased the product and put it to use I was able go without charging it for only 9-10 days. The watch is charged via micro usb which is given with the watch in the box. After installing the polar flow app available in both, ios and android you can sync in the watch with your mobile or you can also sync the device via USB and the data will go to the polar flow web service. The straps come with different sizes(small,medium,large) and with different colours(pink,white,green,black,blue). One very cool feature about this watch is that it breaks down your sleep. What I mean is that if you decide to wear it and go to bed, the next day it will tell you the number of hours you had restful sleep and the number of hours you had restless sleep.

Personal experience


advantages

I felt that the strap was quite secure and wasn’t afraid of the band unlocking from my wrist. And so the locking mechanism for me is excellent! The touch screen is splendid and is much more stylish than the fitbit charge 2 which I also own. And besides fitbit charge 2, it looks way slicker than many other fitness bands. To scroll through the options in the screen display you will need to swipe up or down.You have four options , My day - it shows your daily activities plus any workouts done by you in that day, training - it tells us about different workout types and calories burnt estimates for different activity types, and narrow those calorie estimates more sharply, my heart rates - shows your heart rate but doesn’t record it and favourites - you can sync structured workouts from Polar Flow, that might have something like a HR target, or calorie target. . The display mode comes on when you jerk your wrist towards yourself, or you can even turn on the screen manually by pressing the button provided on the watch. The manual button helps you to manually turn on display, switch the device off, reach your settings , and the Bluetooth option. The external senses of the watch can be used when you are carrying on a dynamic exercise or an explosive drill like power cleans , box jumps , netball drills , etc, in order to give you really accurate results.
disadvantage

The These watches collect a lot of dust and appears as if it has been lying waste for quite some time, especially when you observe it in the sun. in order for the heart sensor to work, you need to strap it quite tightly, not as much as to squeeze your blood vessels but enough to irritate and hurt your clutched hair.

THE APP


As you open the polar flow app, the first thing on your screen will show you your daily goal status, calories you burnt, steps, distance travelled, active time, night sleep. You can change from daily to weekly basis, or even monthly according to your preference. When you swipe for your menu, you wil have activity in the first, followed by training diary, notifications, settings, and then sign out. In training diary you can see your workouts, the total duration, calories burnt, sessions and many more cool things.
The app even provides you with the map that helps you see the distance you have covered after your running or cycling. And helps you analyse your heart rate in in certain points in the map. So, for me personally, I think the app has everything and even more than I even wanted from the product.

cheers.
