Polar launches wrist-based heart rate monitor

Published October 20, 2015

KEMPELE, Finland (BRAIN) — Heart rate monitor pioneer Polar on Tuesday launched a new wrist-based heart monitor with a high-resolution touch screen.

The Polar A360 Fitness Tracker features heart rate measurement-based training guidance, in addition to 24/7 activity tracking. The A360 is waterproof and tracks daily activity, steps, calories, workouts, and sleep. The A360 vibrates to inform users of incoming calls, messages, calendar alerts, and social media notifications, and also to provide gentle reminders when users have been sitting still for too long.

It comes in small, medium, and large sizes and has interchangeable colored, soft silicone wristbands, which will be available in Powder White, Charcoal Black, Neon Green, Sorbet Pink and Navy Blue for individual purchase.

Fully charged, the Polar A360 will track for two weeks with 24/7 activity tracking, including one hour of training per day. It also works with Polar's H7 heart rate monitor in case users prefer to train with a chest strap. The Polar A360 will be available next month for $199.95.
