Product Description

Product Description

FT60 sets new targets by adapting to your personal training habits, helping you stay motivated and carry on improving your fitness. The adaptive training programme features weekly targets, feedback and guidance so you’ll achieve your training targets more efficiently and effectively.

Manufacturer's Description

Body Measurement Features:

Automatic age-based target zone – bpm / %

To help you train safely and effectively, the training computer determines your heart rate target zone limits automatically according to your age-based maximum heart rate (220 minus age). The limits are determined either in beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate, or as a heart rate reserve (% HRR). See also Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and Manual target zone.

Heart rate – bpm / %

Heart rate is the measurement of the work your heart does. Heart rate can be expressed as the number of beats per minute or as percentage of your maximum heart rate. Heart rate can also be expressed as a percentage of your heart rate reserve, meaning the difference between your resting heart rate and maximum heart rate (HRR = HRmax - HRrest). In Polar software or during strength training, heart rate can be displayed as a graphical trend.

HR-based target zones with visual and audible alarm

You can define your target zones for a training session based on heart rate to help define the right intensity. When you are out of the preset zones, the training computer will give a visual and audible alarm.

Manual target zone – bpm / %

This feature enables you to define the target zone as you want and is suitable for your training. You can set the target zone for your training as beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage of your maximum heart rate, or as a percentage of your heart rate reserve (HRR%).

Polar Fitness Test

Polar Fitness Test measures your aerobic fitness at rest in just five minutes. The result, Polar OwnIndex, evaluates your maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max). With the Polar Fitness Test you can measure your aerobic fitness by yourself, automatically and without any exertion. All you need is your training computer. The Polar Fitness Test is as accurate in predicting the VO2max as any sub maximal fitness test. The test is based on heart rate and heart rate variability at rest and personal information.

Polar OwnCal® – calorie expenditure with fat percentage

Polar OwnCal calculates the number of kilocalories expended during training. This feature allows you to follow the kilocalories expended during one training session and cumulative kilocalories expended during several training sessions. Some Polar products also estimate the fat-burning percentage (fat% on display), that is, kilocalories expended from fat during a workout which is expressed as a percentage of the total kilocalories burned.

Polar OwnCode® (5kHz) – coded transmission

Coded heart rate transmission automatically locks in a code to transmit your heart rate to the training computer. The training computer picks up your heart rate from your transmitter only. Coding prevents interference from other training computers.

Polar OwnZone® – personal heart rate zone

Polar OwnZone® determines your personal heart rate limits for a training session. Depending on the day and time, your physical state may vary, for instance, if you are stressed or tired, or if you are not fully recovered from your latest training session, Polar can determine that information from your heart rate and guide you to your ideal training zone for that moment.

Polar STAR Training Program

The adaptive and personalized Polar STAR Training Program helps you reach your training targets. The training program gives you weekly targets, including intensity and duration, for your training. The Polar STAR Training Program is based on your fitness level, activity level, training goal and personal information (weight, height, age and sex).

Recording Features:

Totals

Totals includes your training data starting from the last reset enabling you to follow your long-term training.

Weekly history

Weekly history gathers your weekly training data. By selecting a week, you can review your training data for the week.

Training features:

Graphical target zone indicator

This feature points out graphically on the display the zone you are in during a training session helping you to stay on the desired intensity zone.

HeartTouch – button-free operation of wrist unit

When HeartTouch is on, different training information during training can be accessed without pressing buttons, for instance, when gloves make pressing buttons difficult, by bringing your training computer close to your transmitter.

ZoneLock

ZoneLock feature helps you to accumulate certain intensity. You can either lock a zone before a training session or during it by pressing a button when you are on the desired zone.

ZonePointer

ZonePointer is a visible and moving symbol on the training computer display indicating whether you are inside the pre-set target zone. This feature helps you to reach the desired intensity targets.

Watch Features:

  • Backlight
  • Date and weekday indicator
  • Display text in English, German, Finnish, French, Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian
  • Dual time zone
  • KeyLock
  • Low battery indicator
  • Time of day (12/24h) with alarm and snooze

    I have had this HRM for almost a week now and have been using it every day. It is the first time I have had one like this, in the past I have just had one of the plastic Polar transmitter belts that I bought years ago and I will admit that I was a bit dubious on spending so much money on something I initially had wanted to just give me my heart rate and calories during my regular gym sessions and home workout dvds. However, now I've got it I am so pleased i spent the money because it is definitely worth every penny!

    It is very easy to use. You can pretty much get it set up and be ready to go in a matter of minutes. Once it is out the box and you have held in one of the buttons to activate it it switches on and then after that it will stay on until the battery needs replacing. So as soon as you turn it on it asks you to enter personal data such as age, weight, sex, height and so on.

    You get the watch, a wear link transmitter belt which contains electrodes that you need to wet before using, and then you also get a transmitter which clips securely to the front of the belt and sends your heart rate etc to the watch. The transmitter belt is machine washable and they recommend you wash it after every 5th use. I haven't done that yet so can't comment on that aspect. If you are shopping around online for an FT60 you will find that some FT60s actually come with a Flow Link as well for data transfer and on mine it actually says on the box "FT60 now with Flow Link."

    As Amazon does not mention anything about the Flow Link I am assuming you just get the watch, strap and transmitter as i said earlier in my review.

    This HRM is generally very good. I bought it in July and it really has improved my fitness. I'd been going to the gym for over a year and really felt I'd reached a plateau. This has really helped me work out at lower intensities rather than pushing hard all the time - and I've noticed the difference both on the commuting bike and in the gym. And it encourages me to do an extra session every so often to hit the target it's given me.

    The SMART system is good but doesn't seem to change that regularly (mine switches every 6 weeks or so) and is only really useful on 'Increase or Maximise Fitness'. 'Lose Weight' is only really if you have lots to lose or only plan on doing so by walking or working out very very lightly.

    But Polar do have a bad habit of making you choose between features or paying a lot more cash to get the top model with all the bells and whistles. For instance, the FT60 doesn't have any way of letting you do laps or any stop watch (which you get on the majority of basic digital watches!). TheAmazon box doesn't come with the Polarlink; the additional cost seems a lot for the benefit of it.

    Have just purchased and used for the first time today.

    Good points:
    Easy to use and set-up
    Able to set own heart rate limits to work within rather than rely solely on polar heart rate zones
    Watch is not hot pink which is generally the standard colour for womens sports watches!

    Could be better if:
    It had a USB download function, rather than having to pay more for a flowlink to upload all training logs
    Run / walk function

    Colour Name: Black
    I have been using the watch now for two months it has great features and I really like it.
    But the black on red display (which looks really cool) is very hard to read except in ideal lighting conditions. If I was buying this watch again I would get the one with the 'normal lcd' screen.
    I have also had problems with bugs (These bugs should have been resolved in new versions) in the monitors software which cause the stored totals to corrupt. This issue can be resolved by sending the monitor to Polar support for an update (mine is with them at the moment).

    Polar deny it, but they have big transmission issues with their chest straps. Wash it, don't wash it, play about with positioning, changing battery didn't make much difference. Problems started within the first month with intermittent drop outs mid workout and just got worse. Also be very careful when changing the battery in the watch, the metal retaining clip is very easily broken (ask my wife!). A shame really because the functionality of the watch itself and the online tracking program is very good.

    For the record I also bought an FT80 from elsewhere and had similar problems with the strap. Also just after a year one of the buttons stopped working making the watch pretty useless. Questionable whether the FT80 is worth the premium over the FT60.

    This is the first time I have left a review for an amazon product, but I am so impressed with this that I felt I should as I rely so much on other people's advice before buying products. This product is fantastic! I love the way it shows me how many calories I'm burning and what my heart rate is. The thing I love most is that I've worked out that if I get my heart rate up high in the gym then I can really substantially decrease my efforts and my heart rate and calorie burn remains high with subsequent minimal effort. How else could I know this information if I didn't have this? It basically means I can reach my calorie goals with less effort, and thus makes me more inclined to go to the gym. Recently I tried changing the battery on the product and couldn't get it working again. I sent it to polar who returned it within 3 days with a new modernised strap and didn't charge a penny. This product is great for seeing accurate calorie loss and is a must have for anyone wanting to lose weight.
