Apple Fitness Watches

The innovative and stylish Apple Watch has established itself as one of the most popular smartwatches in the world. It's the obvious choice as the connected companion for iPhone & iPad users. However, what is sometimes overlooked is the fact that is is also as a serious sports training watch. Due to the built-in GPS, wrist based heart rate and motion detecting accelerometers, it has all the necessary functionality of a wearable tech fitness tracker. In addition to the hardware there are dozens of iOs fitness applications that can be installed on the device.

The iOs users Fitness Watch

The Apple watch range provides 24/7 activity tracking and heart rate monitoring. All the fitness data can be collated and reviewed in the Apple Health app. The Apple watch is recommended to iPhone users seeking a wearable tech fitness watch. Now in it's 2nd generation, this hugely popular  smartwatch goes from strength to strength with the Apply Watch 2.

NOTE >> For Android users who take their training seriously and want their smartwatch to include wrist based heart rate, built-in GPS and internal memory storage for your music there are a some good Android Wear options. I recommend the Polar M600 or the Motorola Moto 360 Sport. The Polar M600 and Moto 360 Sport are both built on Android Wear thus providing access to dozens of dedicated fitness apps like Strava and Endomondo

    Apple Watch 2 Nike+

    ** BEST for iPhone **

    Needing no introduction the Apple Watch 2 takes the original Apple Watch and adds built-in GPS. Combining the wrist based heart rate sensor with this built-in GPS Apple now have a serious runners watch. The Apple Watch Nike+ comes with the Nike+ Run Club app pre-installed. If you own an iPhone and want a competent GPS running watch with off the wrist heart rate then the Apple Watch Nike+ should be in the shortlist ....

  • A Brief History…

    It all started in 1996. As a sports science student I wanted to promote the use of Heart Rate Monitors in exercise. The business went online in 1999. In 14 years we sold HRM's to over 300,000 customers.

    After a short retail back we're now back with the new online store selling ONLY Polar. We still offer impartial advice & test other heart rate monitor brands. Our aim however, is to introduce you to Polar's products as an alternative to Garmin, Fitbit, Suunto or TomTom.
