SO Much Better than Fitbit and Garmin

I purchased no less than five other activity trackers before I found this one: the Garmin Vivofit 2, the Garmin Vivosmart HR, Fitbit Charge HR, Fitbit Blaze, and the Mio Fuse. The Polar A300 was perfect for my lifestyle; I workout 6 days per week for at least an hour per day. My workouts include at least 3-5 days of heavy weight training, Hiit, bootcamp or circuit style workouts, yoga, and spin class. The Polar A300 provides an comprehensive tracking system. I’m no longer tracking my workouts with one app, then going to another to see my steps, sleep and daily activity. The Polar does it all! The Polar A300 is a very functional fitness tracker. It has all of the features of the Garmin and the Fitbit, but it simply works better. If your sole activity for exercise is running, then any of these will probably work for you. If you do any other type of exercise, the Polar is the way to go.

I will update this review once I’ve used it for a few weeks. Attached are photos of the unboxing of the black Polar A300 WITH Heart Rate monitor from Amazon. Last photos show the Polar FT4 size vs the A300 size on a petite female.

I’ve used 2 other Polar models including the FT4 and the FT7 before getting this one and I have to say that I absolutely love this model. Some reviewers claim that the watch is too big but I barely notice it. I’ve included some of my favorite and not-so favorite features:

It’s easy to get started

I did a lot of research before buying this heart rate monitor unit, even bought another brand (but returned it). Once I read that wrist-based heart rate monitors were not very accurate, I decided a chest-based sensor was the way to go. This chest-based sensor and watch has proven to be exactly what I needed. It’s easy to get started, the readout is large and easy to read as you’re running or cycling (I mount it to my handle bar for biking), it doubles as a regular wristwatch with a date and alarm, has very good illumination for night workouts, charges and recharges quickly through USB connection and it even has a free online software to track your daily workouts. I didn’t think I would use the software/workout tracking but it’s so easy to use that I now I find myself plugging the watch into my computer on a regular basis (you don’t have to plug the watch in every day — it can download several days’ workouts and place them on the calendar on the correct days). And since it charges through USB, why not track your workouts on an online calendar with your specific user info? I find the monitor and readout to be very, very accurate and I don’t lose connection. Polar has been doing this longer than just about anyone out there in the heart rate monitor business, and the A300 shows why.

Love This Product and App, Great Warranty Service

I loved this product until it was time to change the battery in the H7 Bluetooth Transmitter. The battery lasted 15 months, and although it appears that you should be able to change the battery yourself, the battery door absolutely will not open (tried butter knife, all sized coins, etc.). If you look on the Amazon Questions Answered of this transmitter, you will see that this is a common problem. It really needs to be re-designed. Currently waiting to hear back from Polar Customer Service to find out if I can ship it to them for battery replacement. Update – I was so pleased with Polar’s warranty service, I am changing this back to a 5 star rating. In addition to fixing the battery door, they replaced the battery, and gave me a brand new chest strap for free. The repair process was quick, efficient, and Polar kept me informed of the status of my repair regularly.

I freaking love my Polar A300

I freaking love my Polar A300! I’ve had my fitbit flex for 2 years and I wanted to start tracking my HR and calories burned associated with it. I found the Polar A300 from many fitness users on instagram. It was basic enough for what I wanted, I wasn’t interested in the GPS tracker (the higher end Polar watches). I wear it to Core Power Yoga, and it’s great to see during class where I can push my self (in their Sculpt classes), and when I need to slow down a bit. It also reminds me of when I’ve been sitting too long. ALSO, ALSO, this is the part that completely sold me, it has a silent alarm- this is one of the biggest reasons why I didn’t want to move from my Fitbit Flex, I hate the loud cell phone alarm clock in the morning! Overall I’m very happy with my purchase, the A300 App that it sync’s with shows me a lot more stats than the watch itself, it’s motivating to see my stats improve on their graphs.

I LOVE IT!!!

I cannot even describe how ecstatic I was when I received this thing. After almost a week of use and I can’t even say one bad thing about it. I wear it in the shower, I wear it swimming, I wear it while weight lifting and on the stairmaster. ALL of these things I could not get an accurate reading with the fitbit. I bought this watch to replace my fitbit because it wasn’t accurate when it came to heart rate. Which is ironic because it’s considered a legit HRM but when I’m on the stairmaster on level 15 and it reads a HR of 68, that’s when I know it’s time to get a real HRM with a chest strap. This is not my first chest strap HRM. I’ve used a Timex in the past and after 4 years, it’s still kicking. The only problem was, I was using 3 watches for each of my workouts. I was using a Polar FT7 for swimming (PS, do not get this watch. The batteries die every 2 days and they aren’t rechargeable), a Timex chest strap for anything not requiring the use of my hands (cycling, stairmaster, weight lifting) and then the fitbit for step counting. This watch replaced all of those and it wasn’t even that expensive. I could not believe it. The best part, the battery is rechargeable by just plugging it into a USB port on the computer. AND after almost a week, I still don’t need to re-charge it. It still has half the battery life. This thing is incredible. Oh, I almost forgot. Another perk it has, that since it is Bluetooth, the HR hooks up to the stairmaster/arc trainer that I’m working on and the HR shows up on the machine. I thought that was pretty cool. I will update in the future if after a week it decides to die on me or something. But for right now, 10 stars. I LOVE IT!
