9 Fitness Trackers for All Your Fitness Needs

4. Polar A300


In terms of flexibility, be still my heart — or rather, start racing! Polar A300 ($139.95) is a fitness watch that pairs with your smartphone. And Polar also offers the separate H7 heart-rate sensor, if you’re a chest-strap enthusiast like me. A300 also has a five-minute fitness test to complete the first time you use it, so you have a baseline for your training.

The A300 plugs right into your computer’s USB port — no adapter needed. Then you can slide the sensor into the included silicone band, strap it onto your wrist and go. A300 is waterproof, so I wore it in the shower, the pool and in the ocean with no problem.

A300 tracks and displays steps, distance and calories burned. It also reminds you to move around — if you sit still for too long it’ll vibrate to prompt you to move (I actually hopped up a few times while writing this article thanks to this feature). A300 also connects to MyFitnessPal if you’re on iOS, giving you another way to monitor progress.

The Polar Flow app collects all your daily and night data from heart rate to sleep activity. It’s helpful to see all your data both on a short-term and long-term basis. When you’ve got a month’s worth of activities logged, you can see where you’re making progress — and where you might need to make adjustments. I found this to be important not just for setting my goals, but also seeing what was reasonable for me, what I was successful at and what I needed to work on or change.

    Wow, thanks so much for the extensive review! I currently have the polar loop – original – and absolutely love it. I use the heart rate monitor strap when I am exercising. It is my personal coach for sure! It pushes me to meet and then exceed my goal daily!

    Thanks again for the review, I love keeping up to date with the latest!

  2. Great information and I’m definitely looking into that Twister Tracker. 😀 I think my husband and I could really have a blast with that thing. 😀

    As for the tracker I use, it’s definitely Fitbit One. I love my fit bit since it tracks my steps, stairs, miles and hours of sleep. Some of these look amazing though, so I might look into something else…however I find if I have something that tracks too many things I get overwhelmed and stop using it all together. LOL. It’s definitely a less is more mentality for me. 🙂

    Thanks for the product review. It is always such a difficult decision for me to buy a product that there are so many variants of. I tried looking for products that have complementary things I’m looking for. I was struggling with sleep and needed a new pillow. While looking into that I found a company that sold both a sleep/activity tracker and a pillow that I heard was amazing. I got the 100series tracker and an adjustable pillow. https://rem-fit.com/ Both have worked so great for me. Good luck on your choices!

    Love these! Seriously, I may have an addiction to fitness trackers of all sorts haha! One that would rock on this list too is the ncredible sleep tracker, The REM-Fit Sleep Monitor. It’s an incredibly thin strap that lays across your bed, and while you sleep it monitors your heart rate, respiratory rate and motion. It analyzes all of the data from your sleep to give you a sleep score based on how long you slept, your heart rate, respiratory rate, motion and more. Then, you just tap on your sleep score in the free app and you can get a full account of the factors that make up your score. Plus it has an extra long lasting battery so you don’t have to plug it in each night. Just charge it up while you wash your sheets and you are all set. I highly recommend this. You can see more info about it at this link: Fitness & Sleep Trackers (https://rem-fit.com/) (Seriously the best sleep tracker I’ve found.) Huzzah to fitness tracking devices!
