Polar Loop Review

 

Bright LED display ; Waterproof ; Attractive design ; Can be paired with heart rate sensor ; Inexpensive

Must cut band to fit wrist ; No food tracking ; No sleep tracking ; Does not record miles ; Must sync with computer before first use

The Polar Loop is an affordable fitness tracker with an integrated display but competing devices offer more features.

Hands-on: Another fitness tracker trying to play catch up with Nike and Fitbit.

It's a bit disappointing Polar hasn't explored the concept of building this functionality into the band like the Mio Alpha and the Adidas miCoach Smart Run smart watches have done, especially with its expertise in this field. But for a first attempt...

Does the fitness experts' answer to the Nike Fuelband SE get the pulse racing?

Heart rate monitoring ; Swim tracking ; Battery life

Cheap clasp ; Unresponsive button ; Fiddly strap fitting

Polar Loop review

 

Polar is a Finnish company that has been in the fitness business for over 30 years, quickly establishing itself as the leader in portable heart rate monitors. With its Polar Loop the company is entering the competitive activity trackers market that is...

The Polar Loop is a cool-looking activity tracker that’s lightweight and comfortable and gives you up-to-date stats right there on your wrist – something the comparably priced Fitbit Flex can’t do to the same degree. We didn’t like the fact that you...

The Polar Loop is a wrist-worn fitness tracker with an integrated display to tell you how you're progressing throughout the day. It doesn't measure distance, unlike many other trackers, but it does display steps taken and calories burned. But how...

If even TomTom's getting in on the fitness tracker space, it seems logical that Polar, the heart rate monitor expert, would too. The Polar Loop marks its first foray into the smart wristband market, which is more crowded than ever - does this...

When it comes to fitness trackers, we’re spoiled for choice in 2014 - and unless you want the extra heart rate monitor above all else, the competition makes the Polar Express a difficult sell. The Misfit Shine’s better design, astonishing battery life...

Functional & Sleek

 

Keeps me motivated with a visual goal in mind. Feels good to see what I've accomplished, or a little sting when I have come up short. Would recommend... and I have.

Love that it is waterproof!

 

I purchased this fitness band because it stated it is waterproof. I swim everyday and so far so good....works like a charm! Also logs steps, calories and shows the time. Fairly easy to size, although I needed to make it smaller that the size guide...

Mehh

 

Things I don't like: I have to charge it every 3-4 days. I have to connect it to a computer or laptop to sync. If i wear it in the shower I have to scrub my band unless I want soap scum building up on it. Things I like: Its purple. I can see the time....
