Polar Loop: Another fitness tracking gadget

Fitbit was one of the first companies to launch a fitness tracker, and now it seams that everyone wants to be part of the action. Fitbit have 3 iterations, then there is the Jawbone, Wahoo, Misfit Shine, Nike+ Fuelband, Basis B1, Withings and many more no doubt.

Now Polar wants to get in on the action, which is not a surprise considering they specialise in fitness gadgets!

Touting the “first waterproof” gadget of this sort, the company says the device can discern between activity levels, with alerts and motivational feedback along the way. The Loop syncs to Apple smartphones via Bluetooth with its companion app, Polar Flow. Similar to Nike’s wearable, Polar’s offering displays goal info, calories burned, steps taken and the time on an LED display. If you’re also after a heart rate monitor, the Loop can be combined with Polar’s H6 or H7 heart rate sensors for that purpose when it arrives next month in black with a pink version set for release in 2014.
