MAJOR Quality Problems
Posted by: AZDave from: Scottsdale, AZ on
Within the first two weeks, my first watch stopped syncing with the computer via cable and my iPhone via bluetooth. I'm on my second week with my second watch, and it stopped syncing via cable with the computer. Bluetooth sync still works. I'll be taking this one back too. It's a really shame as the watch concept is fantastic. It's the first activity tracker that adapts to running with built in GPS and fantastic for non traditional exercise formats like crossfire.

Great design, poor execution

Shape, size, software and interface are great, but after two weeks the watch would not sync. Contacted Polar Customer Service and they did not reply. Returned item to store.

Good Watch Bad Band
Posted by: ckone from: on
I purchased the watch and used it everyday for 2 months until the clasp on the band broke which was past my time to return the item. I've been searching for replacement parts but Polar has none so now I'll have to take it somewhere for a repair only two months after buying. The watch itself was great for tracking but the clasp broke way too easily.

Great hybrid activity tracker / fitness watch
Posted by: Boilerkid from: on
Tracks daily movement with extra advantage of capturing GPS/HR fitness workouts beyond cardio including strength training and yoga. Connects to Polar Flow website and mobile app which are very nice graphical summaries of your daily goals and progress. I bought it as a weight loss companion and have been pleasantly surprised how easy to use, and customizable the workout displays are. You can create a dashboard of conceivably any data you want to look at while working out. So far I have found it very easy to connect to some of my preferred 3rd party apps like myfitnesspal and training peaks. Finally a device that uses a common usb cord (Kindle/Galaxy micro usb) for syncing and charging (does sync to mobile via bluetooth as well). My only complaint is that it does not yet have tools to track treadmill distance - accelerometer doesn't track distance and currently it doesn't seem to support a footpod. I love Garmin products as well, but the Bluetooth connectivity of the Heart Rate monitor by Polar seems to be more universally compatible with the fitness machines I encounter traveling at hotels around the US which is nice. I did have an initial support issue with the HR strap and will say Polar rectified it immediately which was nice. Some final comments on the GPS, GPS accuracy seems to mirror my Garmin Forerunner. Though my workouts tend to be in open sky areas, of the few times I have tried it in a downtown big building environment or dense forest canopy I did have one workout that reported some erroneous distance and mapping, most are fine though.

Engaging weight loss tool
Posted by: Susan from: on
Invaluable! I try to ignore getting 100% activity everyday and I can't!! There is an app that goes with it that is big time in-depth like a personal trainer. GET THE WARRANY that Best Buy sells w it. It is somethines glitchy & if u scratch the screen (annoying) u can replace it. Heart rate monitor stops working sometimes. Read reviews on Amazon too & buy from Best Buy…GET THE EXTRA WARRANTY!!!

Good idea but........
Posted by: Anonymous from: on
Purchased M400 HRM in December 2014. Worked OK for a while, then syncing became slow and fnally stopped. Returned for warranty service (at my expense) in March. Worked for a few days upon return but has again stopped syncing. Tried reloading software, unloading USB drivers, and different computer - no joy. Cable works fine with other devices. I really wanted this to work.
Cons: DOES NOT WORK, odd 2-button operation, support poor, takes a LONG time to sync when it does work
Pros: Standard USB cable, many activity options, decent battery life,

Great for Multi-Sport, Useful Data
Posted by: Jimau1959 from: on
I have tried and gone through several heart rate monitors in the last 4 years. In the end, none were reliable or useful. Now I have the M400 by Polar, and I am quite impressed with the watch. It appears to be more rugged than the others, and I really like the variety of information it gives about my various workouts. I like the lap timer feature, which is perfect for workouts where I do a set, then am supposed to rest for the same amount of time before doing the next set. It is great for bike riding. The very best feature in my opinion is that the display is large and bright. With past watches, whenever I pressed the backlight button, I still needed a light nearby to see what was on the display. Not so with this one. I can easily read the display under any lighting conditions. And when I press backlight, I am pleased to easily read the data with no effort. As a bonus, the watch doubles as an activity tracker. Highly recommended. Worth the price.

I've had this watch for a month and it's a great training companion. Tracks heart rate, distance traveled, steps taken, time active (laying down, sitting, walking, and active) and puts everything into charts when synced. Plus, no scratches on the face, yet.

Good bit slightly flawed
Posted by: Optus1 from: on
Overall, this is a great watch. Has all the features I wanted, however, I noticed that the step counter feature only works if the hand it's on is in motion. If your hand is resting on a handle while moving (ala: cart or stroller), the steps taken are not accurately recorded. In order to record such steps, you have to activate the gps feature - which will drain power. Other than that, it's a great watch.

Excellent, great features and at a great price
Posted by: Rchpty from: on
I did a review of most hrm and ended up with 2 candidates, m400 and garming foreruners 25, do to the comparable features as, mutltisport, gps, etc. finally, i decided by m400 Great to selup the sports of you interest and also a deck of screens within each sport with all the information that you select to see. Battery performance may be an issue if you use gps and ligths on on night rides. Nice indoors training options. Good ios app
