As you guys know, I’m a real sports- addict. So of course I also worked out during our mini beach vacation at the new Falkensteiner Hotel in Jesolo.
I simply can not think of anything better than an early morning beach workout. So I seized the opportunity one morning and tested the new Polar A300 watch for you guys.The Polar A300 looks like just another one of Polar’s sports watches, more or less like the M400 (as seen in this post) – but it’s actually far more basic. It’s an activity tracker at heart, like the Polar Loop, with heart-rate monitoring via Polar’s excellent H7 heart-rate monitor chest strap. The A300 is waterproof, though, so you can wear it in the shower or in the pool, and combined with H7 chest strap you can even track the intensity of your swimming sessions.As said before, the A300 strongly resembles Polar’s M400 sports watch, with the same stainless steel buttons beside the display, and bright rubber strap. This time the straps are interchangeable and will cost around 25€ for other colours. That means the watch module, with its monochrome LCD screen, is removable and usefully has the charging port in the body so you can simply plug it into a spare USB port on your computer. I think that’s really handy, as I’m one of those who are always searching the charging lead:)
A standard accelerometer delivers standard activity-tracking data such as steps and distance, as well as automatic sleep tracking and number of calories burned based on daily activity and training. A vibration motor signals periods of inactivity to remind you to get moving during the day.Data is synced to the Polar Flow web and smartphone apps for iOS and Android via Bluetooth Smart.
The Polar A300 looks like a sports watch but actually has more basic functions. This watch is a real fashion statement sport watch. Due to its functions its perfect for those of you who want to get more active, hit the gym and go jogging. For those of you who are more active and are training for certain running events such as a half marathon, a marathon or anything like that, I would recommend you to get the Polar M400 or V800, as those are really multi function sport computers. I wear the A300 during the day while I’m working at the home office (as it reminds me to move my body), at the gym and short running sessions. The rubber straps of Polar watches are really one of the most comfortable watch straps in the sport section, as they perfectly adjust to your wrist even to very thin ones. The fact that you can change the rubber strap is a real highlight as I always love to be perfectly dressed and match my gym clothes with my accessories;) GIVEAWAY

have been wanting a polar watch for the gym for so long, this little beauty in pink would be just perfect
Ich träume schon eeeewig von einer Polar Uhr! Kann sie mir aber nicht leisten :( das waterproof Modell ist ja super gerade für den Sommer, da ich da stets im Wasser bin :P währe evht cool, sie auch mal beim Schwimmen statt nur im Fitness und beim Laufen aus zu probieren! :) :)
Yey, wie cool! Ich würde mich sehr über das pinke Modell freuen :-)
Ohh wie schön <3 ich bin eine stille Leserin deines Blogs, Instagram-Accounts und auch auf FB, aber da kann ich nicht still sein :) Ich würde mich wirklich sehr über ein schwarzes oder weißes Modell freuen und damit gleich mal schwimmen gehen :)
Vorweg mal gratuliere zu deinem super Blog und Hut ab vor deiner Motivation und deinem Engagement, das du investierst. Ich selber benutzt eine Polar FT7 zum Training und überlege schon eine Weile, mir einen Activity Tracker zuzulegen, weil meine Sportuhr nur die Basisfunktionen drauf hat. Eine A300 wäre einfach die perfekte Mischung aus leistungsstarker Sportausrüstung und modischem Accessoire und würde sich bestimmt toll an meinem Handgelenk machen! ;)
Alles Liebe und viel Freude weiterhin mit deinem Modell!
I’d love to win the polar watch as I have been willing to get my hands on a suitable modell for my training for a while now, but just haven’t got around to it. I think the function of reminding you to move is also great, as you do forget that every now and then, especially when working in front of the computer a lot :-)
I’d choose the black version :)
I’d love one, I’m already monitoring my runs with a GPS watch – would be nice to monitor other activities as well :) the yellow one is awesome..
I would love to win one of these fitness watches so I can track my heart rate during my workouts! I have a Fitbit Flex but it doesn’t track my activity or heart rate during my workouts.
