First of all, the bad news. There are no Polar strapless heart rate monitor watches in production or under design as far as I am aware. Surprisingly, the company from deepest Finland, that introduced heart rate monitoring technology over 30 years ago has not gotten around to creating them as yet.
Don’t get me wrong. Polar have some truly phenomenal devices that are industry leading in their design, functionality and innovation. But for a company that prides itself on catering for all levels of fitness from professionals to those looking for a healthier lifestyle, I would expect some offering in the strapless heart rate monitor range.
I’m sure they have their reasons and I’m sure if I were to hear them they would make sense. But what can the thousands of fans out there who love the Polar brand and are looking for a strapless hrm watch do about it?
Closest You Can Get To a Polar Strapless Heart Rate Monitor!
– WearLink® Transmitter Belt
Well perhaps the only solution here is to bite the bullet and try out their super-comfortable WearLink® transmitter chest strap which is described as being so comfortable that you won’t even realise it is there.
Its ergonomic design allows it to adapt to your body shape and feel like its a part of you. Combined with its soft textile material that feels like clothing on the skin, even I’m starting to be swayed.
User reviews are flattering as well. The replaceable battery, flexible electrodes that are embedded within the fabric and easy washing all add up to a product that if not strapless, is convenient and useable.
Which is great news since Polar make some fantastic heart rate monitors like the RS100 shown left.
About Polar Heart Rate Monitors
Leading the way in technological innovations and heart rate monitors since 1977, Polar was founded, near the city of Oulu, Finland in an area that provides the perfect setting to test the company’s pioneering equipment to its limits.
whether it’s to get fitter, lose weight or just for the satisfaction that comes from getting a faster time, Polar heart rate monitors are an excellent and essential part of any exercise routine where the objective is to get fitter, faster.
The company prides itself on providing cutting edge continous data into its monitoring devices and this may be the reason that no Polar strapless heart rate monitor is available as even though these are getting more and more sophisticated every year, they serve a different market.
Polar has been manufacturing in a Finnish-run factory in China since 1989 and all of the far-reaching research and development, as well as product-prepping is carried out in Finland. Quality standards are maintained and rigorous testing of products is done both in Finland and in China on site.
