Polar is all set to launch its new fitness tracker Polar A370 with a balanced approach to activity, rest and your overall fitness. The Polar A370 will be a combination of 24 hour continuous wristband based heart rate monitoring along with Polar Sleep Plus analytics to let you have a wholesome idea of your fitness based off activity, rest and recovery.
Polar Sleep Plus™ is an intelligent sleep system with a smart algorithm that tracks the timing, amount and quality of your sleep with the 3D accelerometer within Polar A370.
Polar A370 will provide you your balance between activity and rest. It can measure heart rates at a minimum of 5 min intervals. It detects activity like running or walking based on the user’s wrist movements. Rest heart rates are also measured at 5 min intervals. The two kinds of data are combined to help users achieve their fitness goals with comprehensive daily activity tracking, tracking heart rate highs and lows for spotting trends in your heart rate and continuous heart rate insights on the Polar Flow app.

Furthermore, it can connect to GPS via your smartphone Polar Flow app to track distance, speed and route. Polar A370 can also be used as a heart rate monitor with other Bluetooth or smartphone compatible devices. For example, you can use the Polar A370 as a heart rate monitor with Polar M460.
“The utility of traditional heart rate monitors has been limited to workout sessions only; but what about the other 23 hours of the day? Understanding those hours – whether spent training, resting or doing light activity – is crucial to achieving fitness goals,” says Tom Fowler, President of Polar U.S.A.
“Polar developed continuous heart rate to fill that critical gap. Now, we’re enabling users to take charge of their fitness with a 24/7 perspective on their heart rate profile, activity levels and even rest and recovery. This is a game-changer for athletes of all levels from beginner to pro,” he added.
It is a sleek, light-weight and waterproof fitness tracker available at $179 / 199 € in six different colors. Polar starts shipping in June, however, it is available for pre-order now at their website.
