Further reading on Polar Watches
Polar watches are made by a Finnish company known formally as Polar Electro Oy. The company's claim to fame, in addition to high-quality electronics, is having developed the first wireless heart rate monitor for Olympic athletes in the 1970s. That early technology laid the foundation for a full range of innovative electronics, including Polar watches.
Note that Polar watches are intended primarily for athletes, though anyone can wear one. The watches feature the ability to measure everything from calories burned to running power, making them ideal for people who train hard and track the results as they go. As a side note, Polar watches are as stylish as they are functional. You will love what these watches look like if you are into modern and minimalist.
What price range are Polar watches?
The least expensive Polar watches start around the £100 mark. They can go as high as £500 or more for the most expensive models. Most are in that mid-range price of £200-£275.
Polar vs Garmin which is best for me?
It is impossible to say that Polar is a better brand than Garmin or vice-versa. Determining which one is best for you is a matter of figuring out what you want. Garmin watches for athletes include GPS, heart rate monitoring, and a variety of tracking tools. Polar watches also come with on-board GPS and tracking features. However, Polar excels in terms of helping you create a monitoring and workout plan and sticking to it. If you are looking for a watch strictly to aid in your workouts, Polar is probably the better choice. But if you want more than just monitoring for exercise purposes, Garmin packs a lot more technology into the same size package.
What can Polar watches do?
Polar watches are, first and foremost, heart rate monitors. They can track your heart rate whether you are running, walking, swimming, etc. Through the use of on-board software, a Polar watch can also tell you your running power as opposed to your walking or swimming power. Polar watches can be utilised with a customised training plan that can help you reach all of your targets – as you work out. Display screens are also customisable through the Polar app.
