  • Question
    Is the chest strap submersible? Does the app allow you to input food data   (1 Answer)

    I understand the watch is water resistant up to 98 feet but how about the chest strap itself? Can it go in the water and if so, will it calculate your heart rate and activity such as swimming or water aerobics? Does the app connect to MyFitnessPal? Does the app have a food journal?

      Answer

      Yes, the chest strap can indeed be submerged. You are more than welcome to use it in an activity such as water aerobics. As for the app, while Polar's 'Flow' application does not have a food journal, it does connect (for iPhone users) to MyFitnessPal. - Mike @ Polar USA

      The A300 will indeed work an older chest strap from Polar. It would be compatible with the following: T31 coded, Wearlink and H1. - Mike@PolarUSA

  • Question
    how bulky is this watch?   (2 Answers)

    the depth measurement obviously includes the strap, but what I want to know is how high the unit itself is: If I have this on my wrist, will it fit under the cuff of a dress shirt?

    HEY   (3 Answers)

    I bought this watch without heart rate monitor less than a month ago before Easter. Now I want to get the heart rate monitor with it. Can I get it now without return my watch? I went to the close by bestbuy in my area around 14623, but they said they don't carry it in store. Is that possible to order it online? Thanks

        The A300 does not require the user to wear a chest strap to record sleep data. One need only to wear the watch. If you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact Polar directly at 800-227-1314- Mike@PolarUSA

      Is this activity tracker safe to use for patients with pacemakers? Does the sleep tracking interfere with the pacemaker monitoring device?   (1 Answer)

        While safe to use, the HR readings the A300 records could be compromised by the electrical impulse of the pacemaker. We would suggest contacting Polar directly at 800-227-1314 for more assistance. - Mike@PolarUSA
