Polar F4 Watch
The is designed for the woman fitness enthusiast who is looking for an affordable simple heart rate monitor with basic features. It is a perfect device for gym goers, joggers and those who are new to the world of heart rate monitor training.
The Polar F4 watch has a thin frame with a nice, rounded design. The F4, which is specifically made for females, is smaller in size with a thinner wrist strap. This is a perfect watch for women who often find heart rate monitors a bit too big and bulky. Aside from being lightweight, its wrist strap is very comfortable, which will make you forget you are wearing a heart monitor watch. Those who are looking for a watch with average and maximum heart rate, a stopwatch, calorie consumption, target zones with an alarm, and possibly computer download ability would love the F4.
Equipped with basic features, the Polar F4 watch is exceptionally easy to navigate with the use of the side buttons. The downside of this watch is the absence of a backlight, which is a necessary feature when training outdoors at night or in the early morning.
Setting up the heart rate zones of the Polar F4 watch is very easy. It has a unique feature called Fitness Bullets, which displays a bullet on your heart rate monitor every 10 minutes spent in the target zone. Although it is not as amazing as high-end Polar watches, the F4 is very helpful and you can judge how long you have been training with one quick glance. This is possible through the big display you can read without having to slow down.
The Polar T31 coded heart rate belt that goes with the Polar F4 watch is quite impressive. It is equipped with the OwnCode technology, which ensures that the watch does not experience interference from other heart rate monitors and gym machines. This feature is usually not found in affordable heart monitors and it is very important because there are so many electronic devices that can interfere with your heart rate data. The heart rate belt is also water resistant to 330 feet or 100 meters, sweat-proof and lightweight.
The F4 watch is definitely a must-have for women who can’t seem to find a compact heart monitor watch. The necessary heart rate features are packed in one slim watch. The available colors are Black Amber, Blue Ice, and Red Berry. For guys who want to have the same features of this watch, they can get the F4M, which is the male version of the F4, but is slightly bigger.
