Polar Ignite 3 review: style over substance

 

I really wanted to like the Polar Ignite 3.

Beautiful display ; Sleeker design ; Lots of training features ; Very comfy and lightweight ; Redesigned UI

So, so laggy ; No contactless payments and music playback ; Sleepwise ain’t that wise ; Doesn’t have a true always-on display ; All aboard the GPS struggle bus

The $279.99 Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 , $249 Apple Watch SE , and $349.99 Pixel Watch all have the modern, sleek smartwatch feel that the Ignite 3 is going for. They run circles around the Ignite 3 in terms of overall smart features, health tracking, GPS...

Polar Ignite 3 Titanium Review

 

The Polar Ignite 3 Titanium is really about the option of that titanium bezel because the added software is now on the cheaper Ignite 3 too.

Smoother running software than Ignite 3 ; Good quality AMOLED display ; Useful sleep features

Battery drop overnight ; Price has jumped up again ; Syncing issues with Polar Flow

The Polar Ignite 3 Titanium is a nicer watch than the original, not because of the added titanium, but because it’s dealt with its sluggish software issues. It still, however, has work to do to outpace the competition.

Polar Ignite 3 Titanium review: Second time's a charm

 

Polar's latest Ignite 3 iteration is the watch the original always should have been

Sleek, stylish, lightweight design ; New Skin Temperature Sensor and Work/Rest features ; Great sleep, fitness, and recovery insights ; Dual-frequency GPS for better accuracy

Syncing data can be slow ; Lack of smart features might make it hard to justify the asking price

The Polar Ignite 3 Titanium is a reliable fitness and wellness tracker wrapped in a slim, stylish package. It boasts a wealth of features to provide valuable insights into your fitness, health, sleep, and recovery. Overall, a significant improvement on...

Polar Ignite 3 review: not so smart, but it's pretty

 

The Ignite 3 is the first watch from Polar to feature an AMOLED touchscreen and multiband GPS

Vibrant AMOLED touchscreen ; Super slim and lightweight ; Detailed fitness and sleep data ; FitSpark provides workouts on your wrist

Slow, laggy software ; Pricey for what you get ; Always On Display only shows the time

Slim, stylish, and lightweight with a bright AMOLED touchscreen display, the Polar Ignite 3 is a fitness band disguised as a smartwatch. It reliably monitors your sleep, workouts, heart rate and step count, and even has multi-band GPS to accurately...

Polar Ignite 3 review: A mid-range running watch for fitness data nerds

 

A smartwatch that feels more like a fitness tracker

Vibrant display ; Lightweight design ; Detailed stats

Average battery life ; Hit and miss performance ; Buggy software feel

The Polar Ignite 3 certainly delivers in the looks department, but take a deep dive into its workings though and you could feel a little underwhelmed, mainly because of the slightly erratic software performance. There are lots of stats and an app that...

Polar Ignite 3 Titanium review: fashion over fitness

 

An upgrade of materials for the brand's more accessibly priced fitness watch - but is the Polar Ignite 3 Titanium worth it?

Sleek, attractive design ; Vibrant AMOLED touchscreen ; Different strap options offer versatility ; Detailed tracking insights on app

New titanium bezel doesn’t really add much ; Doesn’t always respond quickly to demands ; Lacks lifestyle features like music and NFC payments ; App design unintuitive

A stylish smartwatch with a colourful AMOLED display and decent battery life, but one let down by a lack of lifestyle features, a somewhat sluggish interface and unintuitive app.
