Detailed Review of the Polar FT4 Sports Watch
The Polar FT4 has a built in automatic target zone that will be based on your age. This ensures efficient but safe training. You can push yourself guided by your watch and know that you’re not overdoing things. Of course not everyone was created equal and if you feel that this zone is not giving you enough of a workout or it may feel like a little too much for you initially, you can just switch to manual and set your own preferred beats per minute target zone.
Polar OwnCal® is the most accurate calorie counter out there. It calculates the number of calories expended during a training session based on your weight, height, age, gender, your individual maximum heart rate and how hard you’re training.
The graphical target zone indicator lets you quickly and easily see if you’re in the right zone for the desired result. This won’t take a second, no buttons, so you will not be distracted from your workout.
As you have come to expect with Polar products, this watch and strap will sync with most gym machines out there – meaning you can take it to the gym with you and get the most accurate results tailored to you.
