To know where you want to be, you need to know where you currently stand. And that means having a full comprehension of all your fitness metrics. There are plenty of fitness trackers that you can choose from, but to have a well-rounded understanding and monitoring of your fitness levels, you cannot go wrong with the Polar M 400 HR Watch.
The M400 HR Watch has been designed by Finnish company Polar, known for developing the world’s first wireless heart rate monitor that we see today in so many fitness devices, and is the perfect partner for every fitness enthusiast. Delivering information on multiple parameters, the watch does much more than you might expect. This WR30 rated water resistant watch features a distraction-free display that intuitively delivers all your activity tracking details, as well as notifications from your smartphone when paired. Designed for life, the watch lets you answer or reject incoming calls and texts at a glance, alerting you to calendar appointments and delivering push notifications from social media apps to your wrist. But its true power comes to light when you start training with it.
A powerful training companion and daily motivator, the Polar M400 HR Watch features a built-in GPS system that tracks your pace, distance and altitude. With its ‘Back To Start’ feature you can now safely explore new running paths. It measures your daily activity levels by tracking your steps, activity, sleep and calories 24/7, helping you stay active throughout the day. By using an onboard Polar H7 heart rate sensor, the watch helps you build a heart rate training routine, while its running cadence monitor improves your running efficiency and prevents injuries. Over time, the watch analyses your long-term progress and its Running Index analysis predicts your event finish times for a 5K, 10K, half and full marathon run. All your training data is collated and synced with the Polar Flow online and mobile apps that let you set individual training targets and follow their progress.
If that felt like a lot, there’s even more for hardcore fitness fiends. The watch’s Smart Coaching features pair with the Flow app to deliver detailed data that helps you train systematically and keeps you motivated. Its Smart Calories feature lets you know how many calories you’ve burned based on your weight, height, age, gender, individual maximum heart rate and how hard you’ve trained. The Training Load module shows you how the training affects your body and helps you to compare the load of different sessions. By monitoring your load continuously, you have a better understanding of your personal limits, helping you adjust your training intensity and duration. The watch delivers motivating feedback immediately after training with benefits of the session, as a Recovery Status shows you the time your body needs to recover after the next training session.
The M400 HR watch’s Activity Guide explains how active you’ve been during the day and gives you practical guidance for reaching your daily activity goal. It also gives feedback on your daily, weekly and monthly activity, showing how your active choices keep you healthy. A five-minute fitness test measures aerobic fitness from your resting heart rate, heart rate variability and your background information. Regular tests show you the results of continuous progress. A Running Index displays how your running performance is improving, while a Running Program feature lets you train for 5K, 10K, half and full marathon events with a personal and adaptive training plan that fits you and your goals.
With a device that knows when you have outdone yourself, and lets you know it too, your training always stays on point, no matter what your goal is. Its detailed analysis through every stride lets you make the most of every training session, keeping you at peak fitness levels, so that when you finally get to your big running event, you crush it. Sweat it out as you train with the Polar M400 HR watch and kit up with performance enhancing clothing and gear with your pick from the latest training products online at Sun & Sand Sports.
