In the fitness industry, one of the most experienced brands in fitness wearables is Polar. For more than 40 years, Polar has specialized in creating precision biometric measuring devices for health clubs and other industry players and is universally regarded as the “gold standard” for accuracy and reliability. Polar’s latest wearable innovations, the Polar OH1 +, Polar H10, and the Polar Ignite, promise to help both the consumer and club owner utilize actionable data that’s precise and easily accessible.
Polar OH1 + is an optical heart rate monitor developed for maximum durability and comfort. With its long-lasting built-in memory and large storage capacity (200 hours of training information), Polar OH1 + can be paired with a range of fitness apps, sports watches, and even smart watches via its Bluetooth and ANT+ connectivity.
The Polar H10 is attached via a chest strap and has many of the same connectivity advantages as the Polar OH1 +. The Polar H10, however, has a longer battery life and ECG measurements, but for those who find chest straps inconvenient, the Polar OH1 + would be a better fit.
The Polar Ignite is a water-proof fitness watch with integrated GPS. It provides precise data in the most demanding environments, and is ideal for performance training. It also measures recovery progress and sleep quality with its Sleep Plus Stages tracking software.
Polar has expanded their services beyond wearables and is now offering an all-inclusive HR group training experience called Polar Club. By integrating Polar’s wearables and software system into today’s most popular fitness programming, Polar Club delivers all the benefits you need from these specialized sessions with none of the hassle. And with the Polar Club app and Polar Open AccessLink API, your coaches and members can easily utilize the services and data that make these tech-based workout sessions competitive, motivational, and effective.
For those clubs struggling with a way to bring wearable-based workouts to their clubs, Polar products and Polar Club programing is a proven plug-and-play solution from a prestige brand that has powered the industry for decades.
