Polar A360: Your Perfect Training Companion

Wearable fitness trackers have been on the market for several years now but I have never had one until last month when the team at Polar invited me to the launch of the new A360 fitness tracker at Third Space by Tower Bridge.  The launch event was hosted by Polar A360 ambassador, Davina McCall, who along with her personal trainer, Ed Lumsden, put the audience through a gruelling HIIT workout in order to demonstrate how the tracker works.

Davina was inspirational, her fitness levels were very impressive and her 6-pack was the envy of everyone attending.  The workout was an absolute killer, and I confess, I spent a few parts of it doing more observing than actual exercise!  During the workout, the fitness tracker monitored my heart rate, calories burned and steps taken, which was interesting to look at. Afterwards, Davina took some time to talk about her health regime; what works and what doesn’t work.

I loved that she seemed to be completely honest and approachable with her attitude to good health. She admitted that her weaknesses are crunchy salads, soups and banoffee pie no less, and she also aims to be about 90% sugar free.  She genuinely loves working out and is sure she will be wearing her workout clothes into old age, because she will always be fit and won’t let age be a barrier.

Designed to encompass a 360-degree lifestyle and encourage activity, the Polar A360 vibrates to inform me of incoming calls, messages, calendar alerts, and social media notifications, and also to provide gentle reminders when I have been sitting still for too long.

I have been using the fitness tracker lots since I received it; I can set an easy, medium, or hard activity target for each day, so have chosen to go hard and challenge myself. I can also track and monitor specific bouts of activity, whether it be a run, a walk, a group exercise class or a bike ride.  As the day goes on, I can see how much of my target I’m hitting and how much is remaining, which keeps me motivated.  The battery life is also worth mentioning, fully charged, it tracks for two weeks with 24/7 activity tracking, including one hour of training per day.   While my fitness tracker won’t replace my Tag, it is great to use, I enjoy tracking my progress and try to use it about 3/4 days a week.
