If I’m being completely honest, I have never been a big fan of smartwatches. A part of me loved that you’re able to track your sleep, heart rate and physical activity, but another part felt like I invested so much on my traditional watch that it would have been such a waste to let it go. First world problems, am I right?
Anyway, I decided to give Polar a try and have been wearing their Polar Ignite 2 watch for a week now, and I can say that I’m obsessed with it.
Using a Smart Fitness Watch
On the first day of wearing the watch, I had no idea what I was doing. I kept pressing random buttons and swiping – it might have been useful to read the instructions, but I was so excited and impatient. Once I figured out how to track my workout, I had to remember when to start it and when to end it, haha. I tried tracking my barre class, but I ended up logging the session halfway through and didn’t end it until 20 minutes after…oops.
Once I got the hang of it and remembered to start and end the session, it became such a dream! I get so excited every time I hit my 100% activity goal.
Polar invented the world’s first wearable heart rate monitor in 1977. Since then, they’ve been developing new technology to further help understand training, sleep and recovery.
Polar Ignite 2
Polar Ignite 2 is a customizable fitness watch with smart features. I love how it’s sleek and you can change the look of the bands to fit your style. The watch features wrist-based heart monitoring, personal training guidance, sleep tracking and integrated GPS. You can also control music and push notifications.
The Polar Ignite 2 comes in pink, storm blue, champagne and black pearl. They also offer a variety of accessory bands to choose from, including a crystallized band option with real Swarovski® crystals. I opted for the champagne.
I never really saw myself as someone using a smartwatch, but after trying the Polar Ignite 2, I love that I can track every single activity that I’m doing. I’ve been a lot more conscious of my health and try to maintain an active lifestyle. Being able to track my progress has been very motivating and encourages me to work harder on my next workout session.
