Polar Fitness Watches


From a pledge to lose weight that sees you running round the block a few times a week to the committed athlete training for a competition, here at OutdoorGB we have a Polar fitness watch that will suit your exact needs.

Polar was founded in 1975 by Professor Seppo Säynäjäkangas after meeting up with an old friend working as a cross-country skiing coach. The friend, venting his frustration at not being able to accurately record his team’s heart rates inspired Säynäjäkangas and opened his eyes to the benefits of portable heart rate monitors. In 1979, the first patent for wireless heart rate measurement was filed by Polar and by 1982; Polar had launched the first-ever wearable heart rate monitor, changing the way athletes trained forever. Now over 30 years since that moment of inspiration, here at OutdoorGB we have a range that includes basic models to help motivate and inform beginners to complete training systems for world champions across numerous disciplines.

The basic premise that Polar can teach us is that to get the most out of your training doesn’t necessarily mean pushing yourself to the extreme and working harder or faster. The best way to get the most out of your training, watch yourself improve and start seeing results is to train at the right intensity. With a Polar fitness watch you can make sure you are not over or under training and make each session count with the ability to view the results of your workout instantly.
The range of fitness watches from Polar aren’t just limited to one type of training, all of the models in the range enable you to feel free to train the way you want to train. One day you may want to run, the next perhaps you want to do cardio and maybe for your next session you just want to sweat away your worries at the gym. Whichever it is, a Polar fitness watch will help you to train at the right intensity and start seeing results.

The range of Polar fitness products at OutdoorGB covers a wide spectrum, so whether you are an athlete looking to improve your performance or just intend to lead a healthier lifestyle, below we have something for you.
