Already my favorite

By Coach Andi Lynn

from Casper, WY, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I've only had my A360 for a day, but I already love it! I'm a personal trainer and I use Polar activity monitors for myself and all my clients. Finally having the heart rate on the wrist is a HUGE plus that I've been hoping Polar would incorporate soon. I love the colorful screen and the slim design. It's WAY slimmer than my M400.

Excellent Product! But there are a few flaws...

By afdumais

from Vernon, CT, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

Been using it a week, there seem to be 3 flaws... - Battery life? no more than 4 days. I've used the HRM for approximately 1 hour each day (during my workouts) and I've already had to charge it. - Bluetooth connectivity dies out when battery life is at roughly 33%. Sync capability doesn't function - I am VERY impressed with the HRM capability! It is an accurate reading - impressive for a wrist-based HRM. I bought Polar because they are the de facto standard in consumer-based HRM and they got it right with this unit. However...if you're doing ANY exercise where your wrist will bend (weights, rowing, etc), and the contacts might not be in fully touching your skin, readings will be off. Simple solution - wear it BEHIND your wrist bone about 2 finger-widths up. One final observation...hairy arms cause unpredictable readouts as well. Requests for Enhancements - There is no battery% readout - Many of the other sleep monitors activity bands provide hour-by-hour readings/graphs - ability to turn off "auto show" of clock/watch. When you raise your wrist to a "look at your watch" angle, the LED automatically turns on. COOL FEATURE! But, it comes on while driving, typing and many other unrelated times. Methinks this is partly the reason for battery drain.

Replaced my polar loop.

By tones44

from Undisclosed

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

Was a huge fan of the polar loop but I found my need for a heart rate monitor increasing to get more accurate activity monitoring . I also got the H7 chest hrm to use with the polar loop which was great but not as convenient as having it built in to the wrist band. The A360 is sleek, and lightweight. About the same size as the loop, if not a little slimmer. The band is adjustable without cutting the band which is a huge improvement over the loop. The hrm of the a360 is accurate and takes only a few seconds to find your pulse. It has micro USB charger which is also extremely nice, instead of a propriety charger. The battery is pretty awesome, lasting at least a week with 4-5 training sessions (about 1hr per session). Overall it has everything I wanted in a activity tracker, including battery and micro USB charging.

What I was looking for.

By katiefookingrace

from Charlotte, NC, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I ordered this watch when my FT7 chest strap band finally saw it's last day. I researched it and thought the features were exactly what I was looking for, and they are. I work out on a regular basis and wanted a way to monitor my heart rate sans chest strap, as I am pregnant and it was growing more uncomfortable with my expanding belly. I saw a customer post of a comparison wearing the chest strap and polar a360 and there was a slight variation, but nothing too concerning for someone who just wanted to keep track of calories and heart rate per workout. This watch is great. I haven't had an issue with the mechanical part falling out (as a previous review stated)...you just have to make sure the band is tight enough, and also wear it snugly to get an accurate read for HR. Polar recommends wearing it behind your wrist bone anyway, so it really doesn't interfere with any workouts (push-ups, etc.). I love the options for your training (especially group exercise) and the sleep tracker is an added bonus. Super comfortable, not too large for my tiny wrists...and functional. I'm a big fan and would highly recommend.

please make a clasp band!

By liz2387

from Atlanta, GA, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I like this watch a lot. I have the M400 but it is too big to wear all the time (I am a petite female). I got the A360 and really like it for workouts and to wear all day. However, when I sleep it comes off. It has also popped off after getting caught in jackets. I have lost 2 old fitbits with similar clasps and am worried about the same happening to this watch. I am excited to get another band when they are released but please make one with a watch clasp, polar! I don't want to lose this because I really like it!

Polar A360 is awesome!

By carlitoson2

from Las Vegas, NV, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I love this fitness tracker. Very simple to use and elegant. Contrary to one reviewer said about the watch coming off during sleep. I would say you probably didn't clasp it tight enough or the prongs didn't catch the holes on the band. So far I have used it for a couple of training sessions and it works great. I think where improvement could be made would be in the Polar flow app, in particular 2 things. I'd like to see more of a graph on my sleep tracking. The last thing would be the integration of myfitnesspal app with the Polar flow app. If it could somehow let me see a projected caloric use for the day, similar to what the Fitbit app does showing calories burned (which it does already), calories eaten (coming from myfitnesspal app), and calories left (the projected number). Other than that the Polar A360 meets my expectations.

I LOVE IT!

By CmP Training

from Rome, GA, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I am a personal trainer, throughout the day I am very active with clients and then working out myself. Switching from the nike fuel band , I must say that I am very satisfied with the polar A360 switch! The optical heart rate is pretty accurate for the most part. If you want a precise reading, you can link it up with your Bluetooth chest strap. On Occasions that I don't want to do that I can simply pick my sport and the optical reading will do the trick. This band takes the lead from all the other optical wrist reading fitness trackers out there!

Love this watch!

By Megg

from Texas

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I've had the A360 for almost a year now and wear it daily. I've never had an issue with it coming undone (even lost the loop that double secures the band). I workout intensely (HIIT) 4-5 times a week, and use this in conjunction with my gym's HR monitor with very similar results. I love the simplicity of the look, the ease of use, and accuracy of the product.

The band cannot suck enough!

By kjmattern

from Sanford, NC, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I agree with the other reviews of how bad the band is. The A360 itself is okay, but the band is terrible. It's very difficult to secure tightly around my wrist and I need to contort myself to get the two little prongs into the band. The band material is soft and comfortable, but the design in securing the band around the wrist is just plain bad.

By Junior2404

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

The reason I'm giving 3 stars is because it doesn't give the distance while you're swimming. But I do like this product a lot. I will be buying more Polar products in the future.

Disappointed

By jojosk72

from Westchester County, NY, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I am disappointed in this product. The heart rate monitor does not work properly. I use it from the wrist, not the chest strap. At first it worked great. Then it stopped reading my heart rate. I had the unit replaced. The new one was great for a week, then also stopped reading my heart rate.

Not happy

By jklane0909

from Rocky Mount, NC, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I had/have the A300 and wanted to upgrade to a smaller watch that was touch screen. I bought this watch back in February, and sent it back after about a week. I love the watch itself. It was very comfortable and I liked how it looked and fit. I felt it was secure on my wrist. That is where the good ended for me. It was nearly impossible for me to get it to sync with my phone or HRM. It took hours to get it to sync with my phone for the first time. It also took a solid hour or more to connect to the HRM because I had to turn all other bluetooth products all the way off before it would recognize the HRM. After it was connected to my HRM, it still tried to read the HR from my wrist instead of the H7. It wouldn't sync to my phone (Polar App) after a workout. The final straw was when I went to the gym and did a very hard workout with a huge burn and it didn't save any of the information. The only reason I knew how much time had passed and my burn was because I was constantly checking the watch throughout to make sure it was syncing with the HRM and not trying to read my HR from my wrist. When I finished my workout, the clock was still ticking. I swiped through one last time to see everything and ended the workout. It told me that it was a short session, was I sure I wanted to save. It wasn't short, it was over an hour, but I selected "yes," Everything was gone. It stopped reading my workout 12 minutes in and my HR was supposedly zero. I knew that wasn't true because I was watching it the entire time. I was done. Returned. Fix the issues and I would be happy to buy again or try a similar product. Until then, I will stick with my A300. It has never given me an issue.

Great features!

By apollo

from Schenectady, NY, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I enjoy the ease with which i can see all of my information daily. The step tracker and activity reminders have improved my focus on being active. Wearing the tracker every day has not been a problem at all. It is a great product! The only issue I have is that my tracker has lost its connection to my smart phone through blue tooth, I cannot get them reconnected. So I have to download straight to my computer. I am hoping to find a way to resolve this issue(and it may be an issue with my phone and not the tracker).

Love the A360

By nc skibum

from Charlotte, NC, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I've been using this for over a year. Basically picked one up as soon as they were on the market. I love the functionallity of the unit and being able to pick my specific workout for the day. I like that it is water proof and I don;t have to worry about how much I sweat or if I get rained on while biking. having the wrist monitor heart rate means that I can still record my exercise when I forget my chest strap. The latest software update makes it much easier to tell when I am synced with my iphone.

Love it but ... DISAPPOINTED

By Devin

from Paramus, NJ, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I got the A360 for Christmas so far far I love it but I do find the some times that distance tracker is off from what my phone says and also the heart rate is COMPLETE off. I use to wear a polar heart rate monitor all the time to work out so I have an idea of what my heart rate should be while working out and the past two times I have worked out with this I have been EXTREMELY disappointed in the heart rate feature. Any tips or advice on ways to fix this?

I really like this.

By msrgirls

from Longmeadow, MA

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I've been using it for almost a week, and it's been a great motivator. I push myself to get up and get moving, and putting myself at Level 3 for activity has challenged me in a good way, especially during the week. I did find that because of how it tracks movement, it actually tracks "activity" when I'm knitting and crocheting because of the hand movements, so I either have to remove it or just allow for the inaccurate reading at the end of the day. But it has definitely brought my daily activity to the forefront of my daily routine. And it is a good reminder not to sit too long at one time. I'm happy with the purchase and find the interface to be great on the device. Easy to use and very intuitive.

Great watch

By walker

from Kharkiv, Kharkiv Oblast, Ukraine

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

Nicely chosed overall dimensions make very comfortable to wear. Rather wide and thin than narrow and thick which is good. + to designers. Wear it for 3 weeks already. Absolutely no issues with the unit falling off the band. No issues with loosing the USB-port cover. I do not remove the unit out of the band to charge the device. I just press the edge of the USB-port cover and it open to plug the cable in. One of the best looking bands on the market. No proprietary cable needed thanks to USB-port. Waterproof for swimming. Yes, Flow app needs improvements. As well as the band firmware interface. But in general it is a well-balanced solution on the market.

Love this device a360!

By RVJunke

from New Jersey, United States

Comments about Polar A360 Monitors:

I purchased this after I starting using the M450 (GREAT DEVICE AS WELL). This sync's with the M450 and is a smart product that tells me I am being lazy!. Love the Heart Rate on the wrist, is not as accurate as the chest strap, but for most exercising other than when I am really on my bike, this is fantastic. I love the polar Flow app, and I really love how it breaks down the day and night as to what I really am doing. It has literally caused me to change my behavior. I am now ordering one for my wife, as well as the Balance scale which as well syncs all the devices. At this point, I am all in with Polar...well actually have been for years with their previous S725X Carbon Watch. If you are considering this product, BUY IT!
