Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors,

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.

From Polar:
"Listening to your body is one thing, understanding what it is telling you is an altogether different story. Polar helps you get under the skin of your training. We attribute it to a combination of expertise in sports, physiology and electronics, coupled with a deep understanding of customer needs. It’s no surprise then that we’ve been leading the way in technological innovations and heart rate monitors since 1977.

And we cater to all levels of fitness by offering a comprehensive product range, along with essential support and advice. Everything from improving an athlete’s sports performance to helping people enjoy a healthier lifestyle, and aiding rehabilitation and weight management.

This desire to be the best is made possible by ambitious and highly talented professionals who still believe as passionately in what we do today, as we did over 30 years ago. And our success is clear to see. Today, Polar employs 1200 people worldwide, has 26 subsidiaries globally and manages a distribution network supplying over 35,000 retail outlets in more than 80 countries. Now that’s what we call the power behind Polar."

One neighbor At the Fence will receive their own Polar FA20. Now how does that sound?

I learned Polar heart rate monitors show students, in detail, the effect of any exercise on their body by measuring their heart rate. This means you can objectively assess students of all abilities while safely motivating them with instant feedback on their activity.

Prilosec OTC $25 Rebate plus a $100 AMEX Giveaway

Hey Neighbors! Do you suffer from heartburn? I do sometimes. I personally can not eat really spicy foods. Problem? I LOVE MEXICAN! So does my whole family. My husband enjoys really spicy foods and sometimes suffers from it. Solution? Have you heard about Prilosec OTC? If not perhaps you would like to try it.
