Polar M600 is powered by Android Wear™ and comes with Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, for connectivity. It comes with 4GB internal storage where you can store your favorite workout music and thus you don’t have to even carry your Smartphone or music device.
It comes with lots of fitness features which you will love to use. With M600, you can easily track your daily activity at five intensity levels for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It also provides a complete picture of all of your activities. It counts your active time, daily burnt calories, steps, distance from steps and sleep. Isn’t it WONDERFUL.
If you are LAZY like me and need some motivation, then this device can help you as it tells your daily activity goal and provides guidance to achieve it.
Polar M600 helps you to reach your daily activity goal by giving practical guidance like ´walk for 50 minutes or jog for 20 minutes´.
Apart from keeping track of your daily activity, steps count, etc. it also stores all daily physical activity. You can easily follow your daily and long-term physical activity in the Polar Flow app and web service.
Heart Rate Measurement
One of the other noticeable features of this device is its “Heart Rate Measurement“. Its hear rate measurement is very accurate and reliable due to its 6-LED optical heart rate sensors. It also provides tips to train at the right intensity depending upon heart rate.
Polar wrist-based heart rate measurement is based on Polar’s proprietary optical heart rate algorithm to give the best possible results, with an emphasis on both design and functionality.
Best for Swimmers and Sports Person
Polar M600 is a waterproof device, so it is the best fit for swimmers and sports persons encountering water every time. This is also one of the reasons I will go for this fitness device.
Some of the other notable features which I like are smart coaching program, different sports profile for your training, feedback on your training, accurate route recording through GPS and many others which you will know after using this product.
Your training data and activity can be easily exported as TCX, GPX or CSV files for 3rd party Apps like with Apple Health Kit, Google Fit, MyFitnessPal (iOS users) and MapMyFitness.

Currently Polar M600 is available on Amazon in two colors i.e. Black and white. The price of M600 is $329.95 USD.
