Meet Polar Loop 2
Featuring a stylish design and good fitness tracking credentials, the Polar Loop 2 is the company’s second generation activity tracker. It picks up where the original model left off and comes with improved features over the predecessor. Let’s have a close look at its features:
Polar Loop 2 activity tracker retains the retro design of the original Loop. The 85 red LED display is edged with a touch of stainless steel. Polar makes good use of its screen, delivering the right amount of easy to read stats and updates. It does not look out of the place next to Fitbit or Garmin Vivofit and makes good refinement. The LED lights blink in response to the capacitive touch button and give you a visual indication of your activity.
On the top of the band, there are two metal strips and a single capacitive button alongside the display. There’s an activity bar that works the same way as Garmin Vivofit trackers. The Loop 2 is waterproof and can easily be worn in shower or in pool. It is 2ATM certified and it will survive even being submerged in water up to 20m. The back of the smartwatch features the charging port.
The Polar Loop 2 has been designed to automatically track your activity based on your movements. It detects whether you are walking, running, sleeping or standing. It tracks your steps and tells you how many calories you have burned. It also tracks your sleep and divides it into restful and restless periods. The smartwatch gives you a basic readout of your activity, calories, sleep and time. Battery should last between three and eight days.
Easy to Use App
Polar Loop 2 gives you a complete overview of data and for more comprehensive details, you can access Polar Flow app. The app comes with support for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
