Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity.
First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this.
Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body responds and to keep motivated. During training you can check the watch for the target you have set (either calories to burn or miles to go), the effect, calories, distance, active steps, etc. It will also let you know when you are at the half way point and when your target is reached. If you purchase the Polar FlowLink you can transfer the information to your computer at polarpersonaltrainer.com. As always consult a physician before starting any exercise program. As a quick note if you sit to long the little person on the watch sits down and starts to snore. (That was funny!)
The Polar FA20 is definitely a benefit to those who want to be physically fit.
