Polar M600 First Look: Serious Fitness meets Android Wear

We constantly get asked for a good Android Wear smartwatch to recommend for fitness activities, and ever since the inception of the wearable operating system, the response has mostly been negative. We’ve seen just a few attempts at serious fitness from Android Wear, with one being just GPS capable, and the other just being a smartwatch for runners. It’s not until now that we finally see an Android Wear smartwatch that addresses all the needs of serious fitness with the new Polar M600. This is not just a GPS capable smartwatch, and it doesn’t just bring the average heart rate sensor that works every few minutes on competing devices. The Polar M600 is actually a very robust heart rate monitor that even helps a user track heart rate zones in ways only a chest strap could accurately do in the past.

This is our first look at the Polar M600. Our review period has just begun, so make sure you chime in the comments for whatever tests you would like us to conduct.

This segment was made possible by Polar. Learn more about the Polar M600 here.
