I bought myself a new fitness smart-watch, the Polar Unite.
I’ve been wearing a Polar A300 watch for almost 4 years now. Got it when I was in cardiac rehab after my heart surgery. In combination with a Polar H10 chest strap it did a great job of tracking my heart rate during workouts. However, it did require the chest strap to be worn to get the heart rate.
This new watch has built-in heart rate monitoring right on my wrist, so it’s there 24/7. It also has a touch screen with a vivid colour display. It connects to the Polar Flow app which I’ve been using to track my training sessions. I get a lot more information on this new watch including my training history in charts and graphs. I think I’m going to like it.
I’m a big fan of the Polar line of fitness products and I didn’t want to see the old one go to waste. So my old A300 smart watch found it’s way onto Wendy’s wrist. Got it all set up for her, the change-over was pretty straight forward, and she’s looking forward to tracking her own daily activity tracking.
