Personalized activity goal

Years of research have led Polar to create a method that customizes an individual daily activity goal - based on more than just steps. The Activity Goal on the Polar Loop is customized to your personal details and choice of activity level, and it fills up during the day based on the amount and intensity of your activity.


Sleep and laying down


Sitting and other passive activities


Standing, light housework


Walking and other medium intensity activities


Running, jogging and other intensive activities

Intensity levels

Unique Polar technology allows the Polar Loop to track your daily activity at five intensity levels: resting, sitting, low, medium and high. Low to high intensity movement fill up your activity bar so you can easily see how much progress you’re making.

Rewarding benefit

Get motivating guidance on how to reach your goal. The activity goal on the Loop fills up during the day based on the intensity of your activity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great exercise tool I've had my loop for 4 years now and it has performed flawlessly. i swim in the pool and ocean with it, and no issues at all. You can't ask for more than that. The heart rate monitor works great as well. I won't buy anything else but a Polar. I have family and friends who are all on their multiple 'other brand' toys because they break constantly. Get rid of those toys and buy a Polar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ocean Proof! I bought the loop last June (2015) and have only taken it off to charge! This is by far the best out there! I could not find another tracker that was waterproof anywhere near this price! I can say I will never buy another brand! It has worked in the ocean, pool, shower and everything I between! Go buy one already!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works pretty good While I mostly enjoy this product my main source of exercise is volleyball... Unfortunately I feel much safer just removing my bracelet during practice because any time the ball comes into contact with the bracelet (when I bump or pass the ball) the clasp immediately opens and the watch falls off. This means all of the extra calories I burn are not being tracked. Also, charging is a major hassle. Every three minutes or so the device tells me to "replug usb." So I have to unplug and replug the USB side of the cable about a hundred times per charging session. The cord did not do this at first but after less than 6 months of owning the watch the charger has become defective. The price of replacing it is nearly half the price of a whole new watch plus a new charger.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great when it is working but stops often I like the concept of the loop because it tracks my activity AND I can use it with a chest strap heart rate monitor, which I prefer. The price was right on this one, and when it works, I like it. But I've had it for 8 months and have had to mail it in for repairs twice. The first time, the charge would only last a day or so. This time, I was also having problems with battery life, but the device was also behaving oddly. Most frustrating is Polar repair. They do not mail you a new device in parallel with you sending them the non-working one, even though both times they did send me a brand new device. The customer pays for shipping to Polar, even though the device is under warranty. This time, after being two weeks without a device, what they returned to me is a brand new Loop that doesn't work at all. Pushing the button on the device does nothing. I know the display works, because it is active when charging. But on my wrist it does nothing at all, and I know how to work it because I used it for 4-5 months. I am hoping to work this out, but my wife has a Garmin that also works with a chest strap and I'm considering switching to that product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! As a swimmer, I had to do plenty of research into a waterproof fitness band that I could still afford. It tracks well in the pool (so long as I'm not doing a kick set, or breaststroke), and I know that down the road I can use the heart rate monitor with it. The HRM isn't something quite in my budget yet, but I like having the option. The UI for the app is very attractive, and I've never had a problem getting the bluetooth to sync. The battery life has been great so far, and it charges up very quickly when it does start to get low. All in all, my research paid off and I wouldn't recommend any other band for the price tag!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but problems with charging My Loop is saying to 'Charge' but when I plug it in it's at 90%. I have recharged it back to 100% but less than 24 hours later, it's telling me to recharge again (and it's reading 90%). I'm really frustrated as when it's in this 'Charge' warning status it will not register any of my activity. Please help!
