Polar A300 Activity Tracker Review

 

The $139 Polar A300 succeeds as a daily activity tracker and a capable workout watch. Its display is always on, its fitness monitoring is accurate, it lets you track a number of specific activities and it goes in-depth with the stats it records. People...

Can track many activities ; Waterproof ; Can track swimming ; Bright backlight ; Long battery life
