Editor: Jennifer Hahn
Producer: Jennifer Hahn
Polar A360 overview
All that being said, the A360 is a quality product, but if you’re principally looking for a fitness tracker which can track a variety of workouts and send out mobile notifications, the Garmin Vivosmart HR is the better choice for a cheaper price ..
Easy-to-customize design with exchangeable bands.
Device and app suggest approaches to assist you to complete your daily goal.
Heart rate monitor is pretty precise; you have the option to get connected to a Polar H7 chest strap also.
Can’t read complete smartphone notifies on the display screen.
Tiny charging port cover gets lost quite easily/
App has troubles when synchronizing over Bluetooth.
$199 is somewhat high, in particular in comparison with its competition.
The tiny plastic flap protecting the charging port is the most bothersome thing to deal with when you would like to charge your tracker.
