Polar A360 Fitness tracker with wrist-based heart rate
Heart rate based training is more convenient than ever. Just tighten the wristband, turn on the training mode, and get going! Quickly and effortlessly monitor your heart rate - whether you're out for a run, working out at the gym, or even cycling to work.
Polar A360 - your perfect training companion
Polar A360 discreetly guides you and keeps you in the right heart rate zone, supporting you to achieve your training goals. Follow the details of your training session directly from your wrist.
All you need to track your activity 24/7
The Polar A360 fitness tracker measures your activity, training, steps, calories, and even your sleep patterns. Includes the Polar specific Activity Guide, which supports you with motivational feedback to help you reach your daily goals.
Stay connected with Polar smart notifications
Don't miss a thing with smart notifications. This fitness tracker gives you vibrating notifications about incoming calls, messages, social media updates, and calendar events.
Polar Smart Coaching
Shows how active you've been during the day so far, and offers practical guidance like "walk for 50 minutes or jog for 20 minutes" you can choose how to reach your daily activity goal. Meet your goal faster with more intense activities, or spread your activity throughout the day and work up to your target at a pace that suits you.
Rewards you by giving you daily, weekly and monthly feedback explaining how your activities have been benefiting your health. You can check up on how you're doing either from the Polar Flow app or by using the Flow web service.
Calculates the number of calories burned based on your individual data: your weight, height, age, gender, and the intensity of your activity. When you use wrist-based heart rate monitoring during your training sessions, the calorie calculation is the most accurate. The sport you are doing is also taken into account, giving you specific, accurate results.
Heart rate based training
Shows your current heart rate and what heart rate zone you're in, enabling you adjust what you're doing to train at the right intensity level for your goal. You can set your own targets or favorites to aim for, and get guidance on how to keep the right intensity to get the benefits you want to achieve.
Helps you to understand how each training session benefits your fitness, and gives you feedback immediately after exercising. The Training Benefit feature advises you on how you can make your training more varied by altering your training intensity and duration.
Polar provides over a hundred different sport profiles which enables you to choose the right one for your training sessions, and get sport-specific reports and feedback. All sport profiles are based on specific logic and give you the most accurate data, for example, about burned calories. Manage your sport profiles in the Flow web service.
The A360 is water resistant to 30 meters and is suitable for swimming and bathing. Your A360 will collect your activity data from your wrist movements also when swimming. In different tests, however, Polar found that the wrist-based heart rate measurement doesn't work optimally in water, so they cannot recommend wrist-based heart rate measurement for swimming.

Habe mir das Teil zur Ruhepulsmessung am Morgen gekauft.
Diese Aufgabe erfüllt das Armband sehr gut.
Rest ist für mich nicht von Bedeutung.
Was nervt ist der fummelige Verschluss (muss nach ca. 1.5 Tagen wieder aufgeladen werden) und das beim bewegen nächtliche Aufleuchten.
