Leading the way in technological innovations and heart rate monitors, Polar launched into the fitness world in 1982 as a brand committed to helping us get under the skin of our training and subsequently changing the history of ‘keeping fit’ forever.
At first glance
Beyond its space age/sci fi candy pop look, you just know that this little sporty number has the capacity to do some very clever things and all those other ‘stand in’ gadgets can be kicked to the curb.
Not to run off a stream of functionality, but this purple wonder, equipped with GPS and in cahoots with Polar’s web service, will test, monitor, record, score, plan, adjust and do ‘just about anything else’ to uniquely optimise your fitness.
Up close and personal
Let’s be clear, the FT60 is not a fashion statement, it purely exists to make you sweat so unless you’re into an ‘around the clock’ sporty look, perhaps stick to wearing it when you are switched ‘on’ as opposed to ‘off’.
On the wrist
Appearances do deceive though, coming in at a mere 58g it is easy on the wrist and measuring a teeny 1.4cm in depth, this is currently one of the lightest and slimmest products of its kind on the market.
If you are not into fitness or technological brilliance, this isn’t the watch for you. However, if you are, the FT60 has enough juice to get you out of bed for your run even on those cold dark blustery mornings!
