Polar Loop: quantification bracelet

Today the Loop activity bracelet, a product of the well-known brand of Polar sports heart rate monitors, passes through our hands. A tool that will record all the activity carried out throughout the day to quantify your objectives with data and that you can also use in your training. Both for those who do not know it or for others who do have it, our goal is to learn more about this bracelet that is becoming so popular among sports users. We start with it.

First impressions

The initial feeling when seeing the bracelet is elegance, a distinctive touch compared to other bracelets more in line with sportswear. Not a single physical button is observed on it , but later it is easy to see that the button it has is tactile and is camouflaged on the strap. It does not have a removable unit, as was the case with the Sony Smart Band , but the bracelet itself connects to the computer through a cable that contains the box. Precisely this cable is connected to the bracelet by magnets , to ensure waterproofness when immersed in water.
