Product Description

The Polar FT4F is a smart training watch, with Heart Rate Monitoring features that will track your performance and progress, to help you enhance your training. The simple to read and use display features shows a variety of information, including Polar OwnCal, for accurate smart calorie tracking, based on your personal form. The watch has HR-based target zones with a visual and audible alarm to let you know when you're on target. The FT4F also features HeartTouch. When this is turned 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. Zonepointer is a visible and moving symbol on the training computer display indicating whether you are inside the pre-set or desired target zone. This feature helps you to reach the desired intensity/pace/speed/cadence targets.

From the Manufacturer


Your Workout. Only Smarter

The FT4 heart rate monitor helps you exercise smarter with its easy-to-use heart rate based features. Designed for active exercisers who want to track their intensity and calories burned during any activity.

Exercise Guidance and Motivation

Continuously displays your real-time heart rate during exercise. With this information you can gauge your intensity and stay within your target zone to maximise your workout. It’s like a personal trainer on your wrist telling you when to slow down or speed up.

After each workout, the FT4 will display a training summary with your average and max heart rate and calories burned. In addition, it keeps track of your last ten workouts so you can see your fitness improvements and stay motivated to reach your goals.

In the Box

  • H1 Heart Rate Transmitter
  • Getting Started Guide

For Any Activity

Take a class: Track your heart rate and stay in your zone during group classes such as indoor cycling or yoga. It has coded heart rate transmission to avoid cross-talk with other heart rate monitors in the area and a backlight.

Group Classes

Indoor Cardio

Jogging

Fitness Walking


H1 Heart Rate Sensor

Includes the comfortable H1 heart rate chest strap. The soft fabric chest strap sensor (also called transmitter) streams continuous, accurate heart rate to the FT4 wrist unit.

  • Soft fabric materials adapt to your body shape so you forget it’s even on
  • Convenient side hook mechanism makes it quick to put on when you want to start training and easy to take off when you’re finished
  • Hand washable
  • User replaceable battery
  • Strap material: 38 per cent polyamide, 29 per cent polyurethane, 20 per cent elastane, 13 per cent polyester

Get the Results You Want

Whether your goal is to lose weight, tone up or improve your overall fitness, the FT4 is the right workout companion. It helps you workout smarter and stay in your zone. Here's how: the FT4 automatically determines your heart rate target zone using your age-based maximum heart rate (220 minus age). When you exercise out of the preset zone, it will give a visual and audible alarm. This real-time guidance motivates you to pick it up or slow it down. Before you know it, you're hitting your target zone, maximising your efforts and getting fitter, faster.

  • Automatic age-based target zone – bpm/per cent

The Original Heart Rate Monitor

Polar invented the world's first heart rate monitor and pioneered the Smart Coaching training approach that delivers faster progress and better results. Each Polar product includes Smart Coaching features that listen to your heart and interpret the data for you so you can train smarter.

How Heart Rate Training Works

When you train, you don’t always have to go faster or harder to get the best results. To reach your goals you just need to train within the right heart rate intensity zone.

During exercise, there are specific intensity zones, each with a benefit. These zones are based on a percentage of your maximum heart rate- a number calculated by most Polar heart rate monitors. While working out you can use your max heart rate to calculate and follow the recommended zones below. Training in the right zone will help you stay on track to reach your goals.

  • Zone 1 "Very Light" 50-60 per cent: Improves overall health and helps recovery. Recommended for weight management and active recovery.
  • Zone 2 "Light" 60-70 per cent: Improves basic endurance and fat burning. Recommended for everybody for longer and frequently repeated short exercises.
  • Zone 3 "Moderate" 70-80 per cent: Improves aerobic fitness. Recommended for everybody for moderately long exercises.
  • Zone 4 "Hard" 80-90 per cent: Increases maximum performance capacity. Recommended for everybody for shorter exercises.
  • Zone 5 "Maximum" 90-100 per cent: Develops maximum performance and speed. Recommended for fit people and athletic training.

This is a great HR monitor for the price. It obviously tells you your heart rate, but also tells you if you're training in the fat burning zone. This is a huge advantage to somebody like me who does cardio like running and skipping as it can tell you if you're pushing too hard or not hard enough. I now realise that for about 6 months I've been pushing too hard in the running and have actually been elevating my heart rate above the optimal needed for fat burning.

The sensor strap that comes with it, which you wear around your chest to monitor the actual heart rate (which then sends a signal to the watch) is comfortable and hasn't rubbed or irritated my skin at all. You do have to wet the sensors before putting it on and my advice is to use lukewarm water, because cold water can obviously be a little too cold when you first attach the strap.

What it does:

1) Tells you if you're in the target fat burning zone (the most useful info of the lot in my opinion).

2) Tells you how many calories you've burnt.

3) Tells you how long your exercise lasted for and how much of that time was spent in the fat burning zone.

4) It gives you a maximum heart rate for training period, as well as an average.

5) It also tells you the time of day.

What it doesn't do:

1) It doesn't tell you the distance you've covered.

2) It doesn't come with software that you can use to sync your results to your computer. However, you can go to the Polar training website and input your results manually, which is what I do; and you'll still get a record and chart of your results over a period of time.

So, a pretty good HR monitor and cheap considering the features you get.

I am in love with this product. It really motivates me into exercising. It looks good and is so easy to use. It's slightly cheaper than the shops which I was happy about but still quite expensive. Well worth the money though. Delivery was speedy too. The only reason I have given it four stars is because I havnt tried it under water yet.

I bought this in green around 2 weeks ago now and am very happy with it. Basically it does what it says on the box and so far, have had no problems with it. It does require setting up using the online user manual (which I personally prefer, being more environmentally friendly) but this process is very quick and straightforward. The buttons are quite self-explanatory from first use and results are useful.

My main motivation for buying this was to improve my overall level of fitness and motivate myself to train at the right levels so I would definitely recommend it to heart monitor newbies, or anyone just wanting something simple without the frills.

Having said this, I am now thinking about increasing my level of training from basic fitness to include running outdoors in order to train for a first 10K run and half-marathon, in which case I may trade up to a more advanced model with GPS and automatic results upload in the next few months.

The missing 1 star is for:
- the lack of a basic black colour option (for women)
- results cannot be automatically loaded onto the Polar website
- only stores up to 10 workouts.

I bought this HRM a few months ago after doing a lot of research and getting some recommendations from people, and I'm so happy I did! Its simple to use, tells me all the things I want or need to know and is like my new gym buddy. It makes me feel motivated and push myself a little bit harder. Would definitely recommend!

Love my Polar FT4F. Wanted one for a while and i am not disappointed. This keeps me motivated to work out due to letting me know the calories burned and also keeping my heart rate in check. I also love how you can look back at your training files and see your workout performance. Delivery was quick too.

I used this heart monitor for the first time today and wanted to write a review about it so more people know how great this product is. There are so many heart monitors on the market and most of them extremely expensive, however I find that this little gem at a little more than £50 is all I need and want from a heart monitor.

I bought the brown one which looks great in the picture but not so much in reality; it's basically a washed out brown colour but this doesn't bother me so I didn't mark it down.

It's easy to set up (google FT4 manual and follow instructions; the actual product only comes with basic set up instructions)- input your weight/ height/ dob etc press start and off you go.

You can toggle between 3 screens whilst working out: zone screen which tells you whether you are in the fitness zone as well as your bpm, time and calories burnt and finally bpm only. I use the first screen throughout the workout and then toggle between screens at the end to see how long I spent "in the zone" and how many calories I burnt. Genius.

My fitness zone is between 125 and 150 (the watch works this out from the info you provided when setting up) but you can change this manually if you wish. For example, if I was doing target training and was interested in keeping my heart rate around 135-140 which is my ideal fat burning zone, I can set the zone to 130-145 manually.

At the end; it will tell you what you average heart rate was throughout (mine was 135 which is my ideal fat burning rate- hooray!) and also tells you what the maximum heart rate was at some point during the workout.
