I think we can all agree that losing weight or getting fit is one of the most popular resolutions women make each year. And lets face it, as busy moms it is very easy to lose sight of these goals. Wouldn’t it be awesome to have a personal trainer motivating us all day, everyday? No, I’m not talking about that super fit trainer at the gym, but this awesome workout buddy, the Polar Loop Activity Tracker! Whether your resolution is to lose some baby weight or run your first marathon, the Polar Loop is a great training tool.
The Polar Loop Activity Tracker tracks your activity 24/7. The band displays total activity, steps taken, calories burned, and time of day. I personally LOVE that the Loop displays time as many activity trackers don’t include time of day; who wants to wear both a watch and an activity tracker? Tracking your daily activity is a great motivator as the Loop tells you how much activity you have completed AND what you need to complete your daily activity goal. The activity tracker also collects data on your total calorie burn throughout the day making it easier to be accountable for your caloric intake versus outtake.
What I feel like really separates the Polar Loop from the rest of the activity trackers out there is the ability to monitor your heart-rate. You can sync up the Loop with one of Polar’s Bluetooth Smart heart-rate trackers to get real time heart-rate training data. Heart-rate training tells you if your aerobic activity is too easy, just right, or too hard an effort to keep up with your training goals. Not only is heart-rate training great to improve fitness, but I also used when I was pregnant as too not over-exert myself when exercising.* Pairing the heart-rate monitor with the Loop is especially beneficial for activities such as cycling or jogging with a stroller (when your arms are not moving because your are pushing those kiddos!). Instead of tracking non, or little “steps” the Loop will track your calorie burn with your heart-rate data.
The final aspect of the Polar Loop that is great for helping you achieve your fitness goals is the FREE guidance with the Polar Flow app and Polar Flow web service. You can log-in and sync your Polar Loop at https://flow.polar.com/ or download their Flow mobile app onto your smart phone. These services help you follow your progress and give guidance and advice that helps you meet your daily activity goals. All of these reasons make the Polar Loop a great workout buddy to help you meet your fitness resolutions in 2015!
