Polar A300 overview

  • 1Description

Take control of your fitness with the charcoal black Polar A300 Fitness and Activity Monitor. This smart fitness tracking watch lets you keep track of your daily physical activity as well as intense workouts, giving you a more complete picture of your health, strength, and endurance. It's waterproof down to 98' and the rechargeable battery lasts for up to four weeks of daily activity tracking, exercise, and sleep.

The A300 motivates you when inactive and lets you set goals for yourself, and lets you keep track of your progress with the Polar Flow smartphone and web app. And when paired with an optional Bluetooth heart rate monitor like the Polar H7, you can gain even more insight into your workouts. It tracks sleep automatically, so there's no need to set the watch to enter a special mode.

At less than two ounces, the A300 is light enough to wear all day, and it stores up to 60 days of data. It can charge via a USB connector hidden in the wristband that extends into your computer's USB port, or with the included charging cable. Additional wristbands in a variety of colors can be purchased separately.

Activity Features

Activity Guide
Activity Guide shows you different ways to reach your recommended daily activity goal and tells you how active you've been during the day.
Activity Benefit
Activity Benefit keeps you updated by giving you feedback daily, weekly, and monthly via the Polar Flow smartphone or web app.
24-Hour Activity Tracking
The A300's activity tracking feature registers your daily activity at five different intensity levels: resting, sitting, low, medium, and high. You can see how much time you spend at each activity level in the Polar Flow smartphone or web app. It also tracks your steps, calories, and sleep time, and notifies you with a gentle vibration after long periods of inactivity.
Sleep Tracking
When you lie down and your body's movements slow, your A300 begins to track your sleep. It keeps track of the amount of time you spend engaged in restless versus restful sleep, so you can accurately keep track of how much rest you're getting.


Advanced Training Analysis
Analyze the details of your training in the Polar Flow web service to gain a deeper insight into your activities.
Training Diary
The training diary allows you to keep track of your training and plan future sessions. You can choose a month or week view along with a monthly or weekly training summary.
Sport Profiles
The A300 comes with different sport profiles, allowing you to follow your progress in various sports. You can add and remove sport profiles in the Polar Flow web app.
Training Targets
Polar Flow lets you create detailed training targets and sync them to your A300, so you can see what heart rate zone you're supposed to be in by glancing at your wrist. If you venture out of the target heart rate zone, the A300 will vibrate and give a visual and audible alarm.
Note: This feature requires the use of a heart rate monitor equipped with Bluetooth Low Energy

    Polar A300 reviews

    A300 Fitness and Activity Monitor (Charcoal Black) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, could be improved. I use this with the Scosche HR monitor. It pairs perfectly with that. My main purpose is to monitor total calories burned per day to make sure I was getting enough cardio in, and monitoring max HR to make sure I stay within safe guidelines for medical reasons. It has pluses and minuses, see the pros and cons. Recommend it? Borderline. My main gripes are that the watch face is so thick, I have to wear it either above or below my cuff, as I cannot slide the cuff over the watch. Also, where the watch back interfaces with the band, somehow it is irritating to the point where I can't wear it 24/7, so I take it off at night. Lastly, it has bluetooth (cuz it interfaces with the HR monitor), but I can't use the BT to transfer the monitor data to, say, a laptop program to see the data. Instead, I have to a) remove the watch from the band, b) plug it into USB, c) be connected to the Internet to see the data on Polar's website. Those are 3 big negatives. I don't want my data on anyone's devices but my own, thanks. And I want it on my laptop without Internet connection. It may be the best for this price level, but I kinda wish I'd saved a few more $$ and bought one that does everything I want, assuming one exists.
