Show Description

When committing to training, heartrate is a metric that's hard to beat. The A360 has an optical sensor that measures BPM by casting light onto the skin of your wrist. The result? Hyper-accurate HR data. It also has programmable training calendars, pace, distance, calories burned, sleep patterns, programmable data fields and waterproofing for up to 30 meters. Vibration alerts keep your training on track, while Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility pairs with a smartphone for text or email notifications. At work or school, the activity alert reminds you to take a walk and keep your metabolism moving.

  • Optical heartrate sensors measure changes in blood volume under the skin, and work best when worn snuggly, 1 to 3 finger-widths above your wrist bone.
  • Built-in accelerometer captures distance and pace data without a separate foot pod.
  • Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility provides text, email, training plans and other essential notifications when paired with a smartphone.
  • Colour touchscreen with single push button for display activation.
  • Provides caloric and weight metrics when paired with the Polar Balance Smart Scale.
  • Vibration alerts keep you in the right heartrate or pace zone.
  • Activity reminder alerts you to get up and move when stationary for over an hour.
