The brand has undergone a major redesign from previous Polar heart rate monitors. FT40 is available in green, beige or gray. Although the heart rate monitor is mainly made from plastic, it certainly feels practically robust. The wrist strap is very comfortable and most users would be able to get a secure fit.

The FT40 has an energy pointer feature, where a heart icon and a line appear on the screen while you exercise. The heart symbolizes your actual heart rate and on the other hand, the line is the detailed intensity. The line is the divider, where you choose if you want to lose fat or improve your fitness. What this actually does is reduce the need to worry about specific heart rate percentages and other factors that can make heart rate training programs very confusing.
Included in the nice features of this Polar watch is a five-minute fitness test to judge your improvement, and to do so, all you have to do is lie still. There are adjustable heart rate zones to help those who want to follow a specific program.
The FT40 also has Polar’s T31 coded heart rage strap that eliminates interference so your readings won’t experience problems in crowded gyms.
