Smartwatch class is going to show you the latest Polar M600 review. Polar M600 is the first Android-based smartwatch from the Finnish watchmaker that feels good though it doesn’t feel like a smartwatch. Polar has been a famous watch company that produces running watches for professional athletes. In 1977, wireless heart rate monitoring is introduced for the first time in the world by Polar. The Polar M600 is the revolution from last year’s M400 which combines between workout tracking and a smartwatch, and comes with A360’s design touches and wrist-based heart rate tracking in 2016. It boasts GPS, its own dedicated fitness app, GLONASS, water resistance for swimming and sporty looks with a ruggedized silicon band with the price at $329.95.
Polar M600 Review: Design And Screen
The design is weakest point of the Polar M600 review. It is far blander look than the stunning aesthetics or screen clearness of Tag Heuer Connected, Huawei Watch, or The Mission from Nixon. As a sport watch, it is good when it comes to the design thanks to its comfort, super strength and slimness at 13mm thick. It can be used for activity like swimming with its IPX8 certification. Long runs and training sessions are no problem thanks to the flexible, tough and lightweight silicone strap. It is easy to see the screen with 240 x 240 (260ppi), 1.3-inch, transitive TFT technology.

The M600 is really precise when compared to a chest-strap. During interval training, it stays within 2-3 beats of the chest-strap readings. The M600 can be paired with a third-party chest strap. The GPS is very quick. Handy feature is different colors icon when using chest strap’s reading for the bpm reading.
Polar M600 review: Activity Tracking
