#ReThinkYourDay with a Polar Loop Giveaway

8. August 2014 12:23 by jennifer | 89 Comments

It's no secret that I love all my Polar products. They were, and are, the most important pieces of fitness technology that I own. Today, August 8th is my 43rd birthday, and I'm sharing some Polar Love!!

The Loop especially has become my favorite gadget. I love how it keeps me on my daily goal with a quick flick of a button. Even on days when I don't think I'm being especially active, the Loop is teaching me to #ReThinkMyDay.

Spending the day with the #TampaTrio at the beach was more active than I thought!! And mowing my lawn takes on a whole new meaning when I see how many steps I move while doing it!

But the Loop does more than just track my steps. It is a 24/7 Activity Tracker. Polar Loop keeps track of every step, jump and run. Climb the stairs. Ride the waves. Jump over the fence. Choose what makes you move. Polar Loop tracks all the choices you make during the day and shows how they’re good for you. It also reminds you when you’ve been still for too long. Living an active life has never been this fun and easy. Check the Polar Flow web service and learn how all your small choices and daily habits can make a world of difference.

The Activity Guide shows how active you've been during the day. It also tells you how much you need to do to reach the global recommendations for physical activity. With practical guidance like ‘walk for 50 minutes or jog for 20 minutes’ you can choose how to reach your daily activity goal. Meet your goal faster with more intense activities or stay active at a slightly more moderate pace throughout the day.

The most accurate calorie counter on the market calculates the number of calories burned. Calculation is based on your individual data: your weight, height, age, gender and the intensity of physical activity. Smart Calories are available in heart rate monitors and activity trackers.

I also LOVE how the Polar Loop starts tracking your sleep time automatically when you lie down and your body movements slow. The Polar Flow mobile app and web service tell you how much you slept in total and how restful your sleep was. By showing you the amount of restful versus restless sleep, it gives you a detailed look into how you sleep at night so you can see if it's affected by any changes in your daily life.

The Polar Loop also measures the distance you move throughout the day based on your activity. The Polar Flow mobile app and web service tell you how many kilometers or miles you've covered. The distance is measured based on your body movement.

And Polar wants to give one of my readers/followers a Loop of their very own!!
