An Updated Polar A360 Fitness Watch Review

An Updated Polar A360 Fitness Watch Review

Nearly two years ago I decided to buy a new fitness watch. When I started going to the gym regularly I had a Polar FT4, which required a heart strap to measure your heart rate, but I wanted more. I wanted easier. I wanted cuter.

So, after some research I decided on the Polar A360. I wrote a first impression review in 2016, but I wrote it only after having the watch for two months. Now that it’s been almost two years, and I still love my watch, I wanted to give an update.

4 Healthy and Easy Make Ahead Breakfasts for Busy Mornings

I am so not a morning person. I sometimes get out of bed, and I’m out the door 10 minutes later because I get every second of warm comfyness in my bed as possible. That means I never make myself breakfast before I leave for work which leaves me with two options: run through a drive-thru or don’t eat (ha – I will eat).

I would much rather grab something healthy out of my fridge than spend money on something that might not be as healthy – that adds up! Calories and money. 😉

I started out with Polar FT4, one of the oldest models of fitness watches. In fact, it might be the oldest. I don’t know for sure. I really liked this watch. I liked it a lot, but I wasn’t a fan of having to wear the heart rate monitor strap, and some days I would forget to even put the watch on for my workouts.

The Science Behind Motivation – Why Choosing Fun Activities Will Help You Reach Your Goals

Last week I came across an article on The Muse called The Science Behind Staying Motivated Will Change the Way You Reach Your Goals. It showcased a video (shown below) made by Asap SCIENCE about what makes it difficult or easy to achieve your goals. It was interesting. So interesting that I basically started a novel in a Facebook status, which has led me to this Blog post.

One of the main points in the video is that people are more likely to stick to their goals when they are doing something they enjoy. The video says, “Play is the strongest motivator for sustained behavioral changes.”

YES. I feel so strongly about this! I really believe you’re more likely to stick to something – anything – if you enjoy doing it. Continue reading “The Science Behind Motivation – Why Choosing Fun Activities Will Help You Reach Your Goals”
