Polar A300 Review

Everyone knows the Polar fitness tracker. A while back, they introduced the A300 model to become a workout companion and standard watch for all fitness fanatics to enjoy. With the number of exercise tracking, monitoring daily steps, distance and calories burned what do consumers have to say.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • Most athletes found the Polar A300 keeps track of steps, calories burned, tracking distance, and the inactivity alert helpful.
  • One jogger mentioned the wake-up alarm and sleep-tracking mode works well and helps them to wake up in the morning to go for a run.
  • Another helpful feature workout users found great is the Polar A300 automatically detects when you fall asleep and you can set and forget it. It does an excellent job of buzzing you awake.
  • Many consumers found the choice of selecting a color for the wristband outstanding to fit in with their daily lifestyle. While the always-on watch face is, like by many.
  • For using the smartwatch outdoors, users found the bright blue backlight pleasant and makes reading in daylight easier.
  • Swimmers found tracking their swimming great as the device is water-resistance up to 30-meters.
  • Several sports experts found the recording of a workout easy, as you need to choose the activity from the home screen and start tracking your progress.
  • All sports users welcome the fact that the device tracks running, cycling, general indoor, outdoor, Pilates, and swimming. Another highlight is that you can see your activity for the day on the progress bar with stats and more.
  • While most fitness extremists are glad to see the wearable saves activity data up to 60 days.
  • An added bonus all users commented on is the excellent battery life, as they only needed to charge the unit after four days of use.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • The biggest complaint all sports experts had is that there is no built-in heart-rate monitor and it does not have smartphone notifications for the expensive price. You can buy the heart-rate monitor separate or in a bundle and include a chest strap.
  • Many athletes found setting up the activity tracker cumbersome. You need to use the Polar FlowSync to the computer and connect it via the USB cable. Then you need to create an account, synchronize, and update the firmware then only can you use it.


If you need a fitness tracker to use with different sports genres the Polar A300 is capable of doing this. The great thing is you can wear it as a watch and the fitness monitoring is accurate, but does not include a heart-rate monitor or smartphone notifications.

    The Polar A300 provides accurate fitness tracking in a watch-style design, but we wish it offered more features for the price. Full review

    The A300 could tempt the activity-tracking purist, but style and the smartwatch trend have definitely passed it by. Full review
