easy to use, buy the heart rate monitor

  • Excerpt: Bought this a few weeks ago and so far I'm happy with it. I would highly recommend buying a heart rate sensor to use with it. The loop counts steps, but doesn't really know how much effort you're ve putting into those steps. The heart rate sensor fixes that. For example, last week I went on several challenging day hikes with only the loop on my wrist and at the end of the each day I barely met my activity goal set on the lowest level, even though I was exhausted.
  • Pros: Easy to use

Perfect Polar Product!

  • Excerpt: Since the display is right on the "Loop" you don't need to look at your phone for information, including the time of day! Who wants to wear something that does not have many purposes. Guys at B&H are the best!
  • Pros: Flexible comfortable, Very Useful Display
  • Cons: Battery life

Not a Great Watch

Davy Ray, B&H Photo
25 July 2014
  • Excerpt: It works. The information on using it is not easy to find, and not actually complete. I was not impressed with the need to set the device up initially using a Windows or Mac computer. That seems like an unnecessary restriction. Also was not happy that it is impossible to set up or sync this device using a linux computer. It is not exactly a great watch, as it does not have many watch features. I do like the data it captures, though I wonder how accurate it is.
  • Pros: Appearance
  • Cons: Limited apps, Os Specific Software

  • Summary: Started using the Loop on Christmas and once I figured out the Polar Flow software and the Polar Beats it was easy. I made it harder than it should have been. The Polar site has provided some very interesting training insights.

  • Summary: I had the Fitbit Zip and accidently fried it by wearing it in the pool. Forgot to take it off. So, when the Loop was advertised as waterproof, I really keyed on that feature. But, where with a Fitbit I could walk across a room and see my steps increment, with the Loop I could spend quite a bit of time walking and the display wouldn't update. Then, 10 min later, after sitting inactive, more steps would magically appear.
  • Pros: Beautiful Display, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Clasp, Lightweight, Simple Controls, Waterproof
  • Cons: Cut-to-fit Band, Inaccurate, Limited Functions, No Android App, Poor Step Counting, Rudimentary Site

Polar Loop Activity Tracker

  • Summary: Received this as a gift about two weeks ago. Like the other Polar products I have it was a breeze to set up. Log on line and follow the instructions. I did have to charge the unit a bit but that's expected I downloaded the Flow app onto an iPhone and it syncs via Bluetooth Technology. I set it up for my wife to use. She has a corporate desk job so it really helps with her calorie burn goal. She now takes the stairs and is more aware of her activity throughout the day.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact Design, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Simple Controls

  • Summary: I bought this with high hopes. I so wanted this to be awesome. I loved that it would work with a HRM. The HRM feature for me turned out to be overrated and I'll just stick with the HRM separate. The display is just OK. Nothing fancy. What really changed my feelings was the website/phone app. It really does not tell you a whole lot and is lacking real detailed information. My wife got a Fitbit Force which she loves.....and I love but cant find one in stock.

  • Summary: After reading the other two reviews of this product, I thought I'd leave my own. I feel much differently about the Polar Loop. I am very pleased and I don't have the same issues as the other reviewers. I owned a Fitbit Flex which was great for the 2 weeks it worked. But if I'm paying $100 for something, I want to feel that I'm getting good use out of it. Unlike the Flex, this bracelet is waterproof, which I've tested, and it's true.

  • Summary: There is only support for iOS devices and no Android or Microsoft phones. I only found this out after the website went fully functional after the release. I contacted themfor a possible release timeframe, but after a week I have not recieved anything back. So far Polar customer service has not impressed me due to the lack of a response. The device requires you to cut the band to make it fit the user.
  • Pros: Accurate, Fit To The Person, Long Battery Life, Rugged, Shows Date
  • Cons: Fit To The Person, Heavy, High Body Resistance Inte, Must Have Dongle Attached, No Android Support, No Sleep Mode

  • Summary: Comments on Form: Nice looking; didn't enjoy cutting band to fit it properly. OK get over that! Comments on Function: Where the heck is the reset button? Oh, doesn't exist. Where are my options to be in control of my activity tracker, such as choosing when to start and stop the tracking? Oh, doesn't exist. Where are any interactive controls/options? Oh, doesn't exist. Where is the conversion from Steps to Miles? Oh, doesn't exist.
  • Pros: Can Use In Wet Conditions, Form-looks Nice
  • Cons: Does Not Convert Steps To, Inaccurate, Limited Functions, Missing 4000 Steps
