SO Much Better than Fitbit and Garmin
121 people found this helpful.
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.

Update 08-31-2015 – I doubt people are still reading my watch review but if you are I have now lost 50 pounds using this watch. It is not a magic watch it just makes you more aware. And second, people keep asking me when the phone notifications are coming. Polar recently sent this internal message to all watch owners. So here is the news and Good Luck!
I think I’m in love

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:

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.
A replace for my broken FT7

I bought the Polar A300 to replace my broken Polar FT7. I was looking just for an old good hearth reate monitor. When I bought the A300 I didn’t realize that has a removable wristband. If I had noticed I definitely would not had bought it because of fears of the watch detaching from the wristband. I have not had an issue about the watch detaching from the wristband, in fact, I think is very good made wristband and I don’t fear this anymore. After almost 6 months of use I can tell you:

UPDATE (04/14/2015) –
I LOVE THIS HEART RATE MONITOR! (Weightlifter Review)
41 people found this helpful.
UPDATE: After the first time having to re-charge it, I still love it! It pairs so well with myfitnesspal that I’m finally using the food-tracking app. This watch makes it too easy to compete with yourself! I love it! If you’re debating between this one and the new fitbit, don’t joke yourself. The fitbit just doesn’t compare. It’s highly inaccurate. Polar is the real deal.
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!
