IN THE KITCHEN

It’s the 24/7 fitness device you can wear. During the day it tracks steps, distance and calories burned and lets you know when goals are reached. At night it tracks sleep cycles and wakes you silently in the morning.

Warning: The Polar Heart Rate Monitor can get addictive! It doesn’t just track calories burned and heart rate, it does a whole lot more. The Star Training Program feature sets weekly targets, gives feedback on your training, and is water resistant to 30 metres. It’s almost as good as having your own PT on your wrist!
