Really, really good watch

By JuanJohnJedi

from Arlington, VA, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

If you work out primarily indoors (like, say Crossfit or OrangeTheory or SoulCycle or aerobics or swimming pool, etc) and don't care about distance, the A300 is the Heart-Rate watch for you. I bought the A300 when it was first available in March 2015. At first, the battery lasted me a full 21 days; now (December 2015), it lasts between 16-18 days, depending on (a) how often I work out and (b) how often I pair it to my iPhone. That is NOT A COMPLAINT -- compared to the Polar Loop (which lasted about 2.5 days) the A300's battery life is *glorious*. I love the buzzing inactivity notifications and the ability to set up workouts via the Polar Flow site and then sync them to the A300. I also love that my A300 is able to pick up heart rate signals via BOTH Bluetooth Smart AND the analog "GymLink" signal that a lot of gyms use on their machines. I work out primarily indoors, so I don't need GPS. I work out on an indoor rower, which picks up the GymLink signal from the A7 HRM so I don't have to constantly look down at my wrist, but the A300 still records my heart rate from the workout for later review. (I also do weight/circuit training on a Total Gym.) If I did, say, an outdoor bike ride, I'd sync my HRM to the Polar BEAT app on my iPhone via Bluetooth for GPS tracking while the A300 watch picked up the activity via the GymLink signal. I'd have two entries in the Polar Flow website, but that's OK -- I don't work out outdoors much anyway.

Most accurate HR monitoring

By Rkipper

from Knoxville, TN, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I am overall very satisfied with my A300. I used to own F6 and used it for many year but found it time for an upgrade. I chose the A300 for the overall daily features and the fact it is smaller than some of the others watches they offer. I have a small wrist and am able to wear it as my every-day watch. I previously used the older F6 HR strap and the newer H7 is every bit as good in tracking my heart rate. That is an important feature for me since I recently had coronary artery bypass surgery and really want to keep track while exercising. One feature I no longer use is the Bluetooth connection to my phone(Samsung Note4) as the connection somehow drains the battery at a quick pace. When connected and displaying things like my messages or phone calls and also recording a few training sessions the battery degrades within about 5 days. If I don’t use that feature and un-pair my phone and watch the battery with multiple training recordings can last about 2 week which I find normal. I am still overall happy with the watch because keeping up with my health is more important than knowing I got a text message. The only con I have with the watch is how it counts steps but use another product in combination as I have always thought watches to be less accurate on steps due to all the anomaly’s that can happen such as pushing a buggy will not count some steps, too much arm action can cause an over count, etc. I do not give less stars due to this as it is just something that occurs with every watch that tries to count steps, in my opinion. But I will have to say that the Polar watches do a better job at counting steps than others so don’t let that detract you from using for steps, as I am just extremely picky about my data.

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I've used polar HR monitors for years and this by far is the best! I love the notification when you've reached your goal and the colored bands. I change the band to match my workout clothes!

Love this

By JenDirtyM

from Fort Lupton, CO, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

Replaced my FT7 with the A300, absolutely in love with it. Does exactly what I want, that is tracking my training. Added bonus is tracking daily activity. Pairing with the app is great, adding more detail on training sessions, daily activity, and sleep patterns.

Sent it back

By DoglDy

from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

Got this with high expectations. Tremendous let down. Difficult to set up. Absolutely will not pair with app. Will not recognize heart rate monitor. Tried troubleshooting and online help unsuccessfully. Nice idea but not at all user friendly. Pretty much useless when I can't even see my heart rate. I was hoping this would work since Fitbit wrist based heart rate is very unreliable. Guess technology is just not there yet.

I had great hopes for this product based on reviews; however, the transfer device stopped working after about a month. Now what I have is just one more addition to my junk draw.

Great features.

By Slowpoke99

from Pasadena, CA, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I have owned the A300 for about a year and a half and it is great. I work outside a lot and the display is easy to read. I wear the A300 daily and it doubles as my watch. The battery life is good, I only have to charge it about once every two weeks. I use the the heart rate strap when I do strength training and road cycling. It does not lose the signal and the data seems accurate when compared to my other devices. I really like the A300 but I wish there were more color choices for the wrist band.

Easy to Use!

By Giggles66

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

After suffering thru frustrations with a FitBit, a Garmin and also a GarminHR, I opted to give the Polar E300 a whirl and I'm kicking myself for not doing this sooner. Quite honestly, it has far more features or goodies than I'll ever use, since I mostly "walk" for my daily fitness, but if I ever decide to step-up my routine, I'll be ready. It's incredibly easy to set-up and to sync. The battery life is longer than my old trackers, save for the one G that used a watch battery or something? The graphics are easy to read. The notifications are helpful thru the day. I just love it! And the fact that I don't struggle to work it every day & it works without having to "add" steps because it lost connectivity or whatever, is priceless to me.

Great features.

By GrandmaG

from Lake Havasu City, Az.

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I bought this at Christmas time as an upgrade from my Polar Loop. My only complaint is that I don't feel the steps are as accurate as the Loop. Went on a hike with a friend we started at about the same steps, but by the time we finished the 2 mile hike, her watch was much more accurate them the A300.

Great for a few months!

By JBA2454

from Undisclosed

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I got this as a gift 14 months ago and it worked amazing up until about 4 months ago. I used to use it religiously and it worked perfect but recently it stopped tracking my heart rate at certain points in my workout and its extremely frustrating. I wanted a watch that is as accurate as possible and this one is if it works. Nothing is more frustrating then working my butt off for an hour and looking at my watch throughout my workout to see that its not tracking my heart rate. All that does is make me mad because its not accurately tracking my workout to my monthly updates i do into polar flow are wrong. Not willing to buy a new HR band to see if thats the issue so I'm thinking i might just upgrade to the A360 and see how that goes since i can still connect a HR band to it.

Polar Fan

By Golfer

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I really like the new A300. Loved the more advanced features. Cons are the pink color is too bright. Wish they offered better color choices as the standard color. Biggest problem is the step count is WAY OFF. Does not even compare to my Fitbit.

I bought an A300 and wear it for a few days. I would like to say that the product is beyond my expectation. The sync to my computer with Windows is near perfect. The Polar Flow gives a summary to my daily activities for my wellness. Thank you.

Great if it works

By Lincolns Mom

from Rochester, NY, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

My husband purchased watch for me as a Christmas present last year and in March the strap battery stopped working. I contacted the company (after finally getting through to a live person) and she said she would email me the documentation to mail it in to have the battery replaced.. Never got the email and have not used the watch since ( the purpose was to use the heart rate monitor). I took it to two jewelers to see if they could change it, but of course they couldn't open the back to even see the battery. I am do disappointed in this product and will likely be purchasing a fitbit.

Outstanding

By Pidina

from Flemington, NJ, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

Purchased about a year ago to replace my F7 and have been using it since. Love the sorbet pink band. Unfortunately, so does my puppy. It is slightly stretched so the unit pops out every now and then. I find the HR recording of my activities close to accurate and is half the amt recorded on the machines I use (which I believe is more accurate). I have to purchase a new HR monitor since the old one requires me to send it back to a Polar approved dealership. I love the USB charger, but every now and then it fails to recharge when connected directly to an electric outlet versus a computer.

Great 24/7 watch

By leejuliejohn

from Omaha, NE, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I bought this watch about 6 months ago. Features that attracted me to it: Time/date on the main screen, stopwatch during the exercises, 24/7 wear, long battery life (I only charge mine every 25-30 days), changeable band color, easy assess to app on phone and computer, and waterproof. If these are the things you are what you are looking for in a watch, this is the one to get!

Best of the bunch

By Sven

from Naperville, IL

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I've used three fitness trackers and two heart rate monitors in the past and the A300 is the best of the bunch. Easy to learn, long battery life between recharges, and the strap/sensor is the most comfortable I've found. Also syncs well with my phone. Going to by a second one for my girlfriend as her fitbit isn't nearly as accurate or comfortable.

Favorite watch!!!

By lc43

from Little Rock, AR, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I absolutely love my polar watch! I have owned this since December and wear it every day no matter if I'm at work, at the gym, or out and about. I track all of my workouts (with the heart rate monitor) about four days a week and have had no issues whatsoever. Don't think twice-just order it!!

LOVE.

By Karabell

from South Carolina, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I am a "normal" person who goes to the gym for my health. I do not compete or participate in super work outs. I use the HR monitor while I'm doing my cardiac exercise and when I participate in water sports. It works great for me and holds a charge for a full 3 weeks! I definitely recommend it to my friends!

Great watch but lacking features

By Jessie

from Anchorage

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I bought this watch 3 months ago and so far I really like it, it's very dependable and does almost everything that you expect from a sports watch. The main thing I wish it had was GPS, it only gives me distance based on my step. I am a very huge hiker and runner and to very frustrating not knowing my distance for the duration on the hike/run. I hike and run with a friend that has a Fitbit with a gps and when we compare our watches at the end of it my polar has significantly less activity than her Fitbit. I also don't like that it sets goals for you, normally with sports watches you want to hit a certain amount of steps but with polar you get a standarized goal base on the amount of average activity you do. Other than that, this is a good watch for normal day to day activities.

Don't Believe the Hype

By GI Jay

from New York, NY, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I purchased this product less than 6 months ago, I had to replace the strap battery twice. It was also having trouble picking up my heart rate. And now the watch is completely dead. Will not charge at all and I have used various sources. A complete waste of money.

Everything you need

By Retroman1

from Whippany NJ

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I've been a polar user for 3yrs now. Loop to A300. HANDS DOWN the greatest product I've owned. PERIOD it's better than walking around with a personal trainer tracking your progress (the watch at least doesn't talk back)

Great watch to have.

By Thomas O

from Schenectady County, NY, United States

Comments about Polar A300 HR Monitors:

I bought the A300 in march, and it has been great so far. As a Rower, having the watch be waterproof is an enormous plus. It is light on your wrist and does not get in the way. The buttons can sometimes be pressed by moving your wrist if the band is to tight. The battery lasts for about a week with smart notifications on, and 2+ weeks with it off (if you sync it with your phone daily and use the heart rate strap). The battery will last for 3 1/2 weeks without any kind of bluetooth connections. The silicone watchband gets gross with dead skin, and can break easily around sharp things but it holds up well. Having a few extra watchbands is a good investment. When I first bought this watch it didn't have smart notifications, it was just a normal activity tracker. The recent update made it better and now it is better than most fitbits and some other activity trackers on the market. I had a polar loop before this, and this is a massive step up. This activity tracker is perfect for any person trying to get in shape, stay fit, or just for a pedometer.

Hi I bought the A300 polar watch 6 months ago. All I have to say it was the best decision I have ever made! I love it!! It is so accurate with calories burned in the day including my steps. I wanted to see how many Calories I was burning in a days of work because I am a hairdresse. I am always on my feet. I love how it tracks my sleep patterns too!!! Also they have different colored bands so fashionable!!!
