SO Much Better than Fitbit and Garmin
201 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!
Unboxing the Polar A300

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.
Polar has combined all its options into One (great for Cross fit, DVD fitness enthusiasts) – and the usual Polar annoyance )

Not bad for the price but lacks the features of a dedicated heart rate monitor

This watch is very good I have owned several polar watches as well as a few fitbits. This watch I wanted for daily use and not necessarily for when I was doing rigorous workouts. The fact that the heart rate monitor is not included with the watch is a big turn off. If I did not have the heart rate monitor as well then this would have been a glorified pedometer.
I love my A300

This product is awesome!!! It allows me to keep track of my step, my activity goal,fitness activities, calories burned when I wear my bluetooth heartrate strap.The watch has an option for a fitness test, but I have yet try it. It alet’s you to get moving if you sitting too long. The A300 acts as a watch—you can set an alarm and it tell you what day & time it is. It’s pretty easy to use and sturdy unlike the A360— which keep falling off my wrist & breaking(polar fixed it for free multiply time because of my warranty).I eventually I loss my A360 because it clasp was awful. I’m glad I took a chance with A300…it was the decision I made.
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!
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.

This thing has changed the way I work out! I’ve tried a few other fitness bands but decided I wanted one for heart rate etc. I like the different settings to choose from and how it keeps track of your history.
