Polar Loop 2


In my package of loan unit was the Polar Loop 2, a pulse measuring tape (hope you call the thing so) and a cable.

At the beginning it is necessary to create a Polar account online and make some adjustments. Before it can go wrong with the training.

After that install and lossporteln the appropriate app. It measures all the activities during wear. The service is not very intuitive and me personally too expensive. Also, I do not want to wear all the time this band. But who likes it. Certainly useful is the pulse monitor, but this is done, a heart rate monitor.


Polar Balance


The Polar balance only measures the weight and displays what actually anyway it is apparent to one must also buy the whole package to use them completely can. Even if it works with Bluetooth etc. also a gadget, which I will not define me. Because I might as well be on my usual level.




‘m not a fan of Activity Tracker and balance, it is too time-consuming, complicated and too expensive. Short I do not need it simply because I am not a professional athlete and have no hesitation to continuous monitoring.


At least to me, this test has the made aware of buy it, and saved me a lot money.


Do you use activity trackers?

    Für mich würde sich so etwas überhaupt nicht lohnen. Aber ich denke, es hat sicherlich für Sportler viele Vorteile. Viele Grüße und einen schönen Sonntag
