Polar introduced Polar Loop 2 activity tracker. The Loop 2 builds on the well-liked Polar features, design, waterproofness, and the possibility to expand to heart rate-based training. Moreover, the Loop 2 introduces vibration alerts, smart notifications, and new colors and soft materials. Polar Loop 2 resembles the sleek and award-winning design of its predecessor, the Polar Loop, with the same illuminating display consisting of 85 individually placed LED lights. The Loop 2 will be available in the familiar Smoky Black color made of TPU and in new colors Powder White and Sorbet Pink made of soft and flexible silicon. The wristband is customizable in size, secured with a high-quality stainless steel buckle. Designed to be worn 24/7, not only does it track the user's daily activity, workouts and sleep, it gently vibrates reminding the user to move if they have been sitting for too long. The Loop 2 even displays and vibrates for incoming calls and messages as well as calendar alerts. The Loop 2 can be paired up with Polar H7 Bluetooth® Smart heart rate sensor for live, accurate heart rate. People leading a hectic life balancing work, family, exercising and social life can benefit greatly from the support and guidance provided by Polar Loop 2. By filling in their personal information such as age, gender and weight and choice of activity level, the user will be presented with an individual daily activity goal ensuring the most accurate activity tracking. The smart Loop 2 carefully detects daily activity, separating into five activity intensity levels: resting, sitting, low, medium and high. It also measures steps, distance, calories and sleep with highly accurate and individualized algorithms based on thorough research conducted by Polar.
