The company created history in 1991 by releasing a computer program that could analyze a person’s exercise routine. The company is combining their thirty-odd years of experience in manufacturing the latest Polar M600 fitness tracker with the power of Android wear. The Polar M600 is designed for individuals who take exercises and training seriously. This read offers a comprehensive review of the Polar M600 fitness tracker.
The Polar M600 is an improvement to the M400 GPS Running Watch of the company. They have improved the existing ones and added new features to produce the M600 fitness tracker. The design has been upgraded while the heart rate sensor is improved and Android Wear is added to the technology. The specifications of the Polar M600 are quite impressive compared to most of the other fitness trackers on the market. The product comes with a 1.2GHz MediaTek/Dual Core processor. There is 4GB of internal memory and 512MB of RAM. This makes the Polar M600 a very powerful smartwatch on the market today. The product is equipped with all the standard sensors such as an ambient light sensor, accelerometer, vibration motor, gyroscope, microphone, GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. Hence, the product is compatible with Apple iOS devices and Android smartphones. But the M600 is supposed to work best with Androids.

Although the design is quite similar to most of Polar’s older product lines, you may see a few differences if you inspect the product more closely. In fact, there is a large display and lack of buttons for a start. The watch offers the facility to change the bands of it if required. For now, the company has only black and white bands. But they plan to add more colors to the selection in the future. The watch weighs approximately 63 grams which are considered fairly lightweight. A negative feature of the smartwatch is its charger. Charging requires a cable instead of using a Micro USB. The product comes with a 500mAh built-in battery that will help the watch run for more than 48 hours on one charge.
