    Polar M600 Sports Smart Watch

    • Six months after the repair the same thing happened, the screen stopped working
    • Huge library of work outs, works perfectly with chest heart rate straps, lots of data for workouts, nice screen, waterproof, Bluetooth, wifi, google voice, in my opinion is one of the few devices narrowing the gap between smart watch and fitness tracking in one device.
    • it's a great screen, outdoors and in direct sunlight can become difficult with onscreen reflection
    • I purchased the M600 a year ago, the screen stopped working three months later
    • Small cons: screen is smaller vs my previous Sony and others on the market, proprietary charging cable so don't lose it!

    Polar M600 Sports Smart Watch

    • If not, M600 might be having issues, but all other things work to include connecting to my Google Pixel, GPS, heart rate monitor.
    • Again, maybe a personal issue again, but running phone free wasn't quite as blissful as I had hoped
    • No issues, rinsed it off and cleaned it with a brush and it looks good as new
    • Then there is the issue if you would like to look at the watch during a run to see, time, distance, pace or any other info

    Polar M600 Sports Smart Watch

    • Fine as a fitness tracker, absolutely terrible as a smartwatch in any regard
    • Great fitness watch have had for 6 months and still good his works great
    • Any watch running a smartwatch OS (whether it is Tizen, Apple, or Android Wear) is going to eat battery faster than the other fitness watches (like Garmin, TomTom, or FitBit).
    • this is an excellent fitness trainer, that being said it is not a very good smart watch
    • It's a Great Fitness Tracker when I need it, and An Amazing Smart watch when I want it

    • Poor battery life, and on top
    • Reviews indicate decent battery life (4-5 hours with GPS running).
    • life has improved turning off the always on screen option and disabling GPS when using as a watch
    • Google Assistant has made it a lot more useful- Superb battery life.

    Polar M600 Sports Smart Watch

    • If, on the other hand, you view smart features as a nice added bonus but not at all necessary, there are options
    • If smart features are important and you have an iPhone, consider the Apple Watch series 2
    • After an honest attempt at powering through the strap issues and using it as my daily driver, I had to confront another harsh reality: the smart features on this device are simply unnecessary
    • However, the heart rate monitor as spotty at best, and the sleep monitor function is next to worthless as it reads sitting and reading or watching TV as sleeping and provides.
    • The Fitbit did a great job with tracking my workouts and runs, but lacked HEAVILY in the smart features department

  • Reviews around day (4.10 of 5)

    Polar M600 Sports Smart Watch

    • The Polar Flow program works great on my phone, tablet and computer and the watch automatically sync all day.
    • But the other day it quit working, when I put it on the charger the battery symbol
    • Only downfall is it's kind of bulky for wearing every day.
    • Responsive to the touch but also smaller than expected in personBattery: Used in normal wear with no fitness activity, it has lasted all day, from 6am til 11pm
    • Battery life is decent, typically two days (72% after 10 hours of normal use, no sports mode, see photo)

    • However, the heart rate monitor as spotty at best, and the sleep monitor function is next to worthless as it reads sitting and reading or watching TV as sleeping and provides.
    • The Polar Flow app is nice but it seems to have a worse problem with GPS than the Endomondo app I downloaded.
    • The Polar Flow app works very nicely and syncs automatically between your phone and watch.
    • The polar flow app is nice, and integrates with google fit and calendar
    • (m600 can pair with a strap if you prefer.)The Polar Flow app is good, has all the data there that Garmin has (at least that I'm noticing), maps, charts.

    Polar M600 Sports Smart Watch

    • If you buy this device thinking of it as a fitness device first (which Polar has done a marvelous job and the app is amazing), then the elements of Android Wear will be an added bonus
    • Seamless merge of Android Wear and Polar -specific apps
    • You will enjoy a far better mobile app and a device better suited for all day wear
    • The Polar web portal is superior to the MS portal, and the app is better than both the MS Band and MotoBody apps.

    • Forget about it, 90% chance is that the watch is dead, and relies upon a proprietary charger, not Qi, Micro USB, or USB-C like any modern device.
    • The absolute only thing that I have any desire for a smartwatch or other smart device for is for fitness tracking, and admittedly this watch is pretty much the best you get for that
    • You will enjoy a far better mobile app and a device better suited for all day wear
    • It's not that the Polar M600 is a bad device, it just occupies a space that doesn't need to exist
    • so I had little problems figuring this amazing device.

    Polar M600 Sports Smart Watch

    • My husband that absolutely refuses to go Apple loves this thing
    • Personally, I'm still getting used to the smart watch thing, but not sold on the hype yet
    • Too thick, about the same as a G-shock- Alarm
    • it's slower, the battery doesn't last as long, and the most inexcusable thing to change was that Google took away the shuffle option in Google music
    • The nice thing is that the fitness data always syncs -- it was hit or miss sometimes with the band (and my wife had similar issues with her fitbit).The Polar HRM is much more reactive than either Band or the 360 was during interval training.

    • Amazing battery, buttery smooth interface, HRM, GPS, fantastic Polar software, and Google Assistant and rolled into a slick wrist band
    • I now enjoy far better battery life, a mobile app that leaves nothing to be desired, full integration with MyFitnessPal, and all the same run metrics presented in a logical manner, plus far more
    • Google Assistant has made it a lot more useful- Superb battery life.

    • The final straw was when I was running a 10-mile event and the S2 died under an hour (only using GPS and HR).
    • Consider the Garmin Forerunner 235 for great battery life, basic notifications and smart features, and accurate GPS and heart rate monitoring
    • In the last few months, the GPS has stopped working properly
    • The GPS is far less accurate than my previous M400, which is beyond frustrating.******This smart watch does everything thing I want with Wear OS

    • I can confirm that the vibration is weak, at times I don't even feel it
    • I don't need watch that talks, but a beeper alarm would have been nice.- Stronger Vibration
    • Some say it’s too weak a vibration, but I have no problem telling when something comes in
    • Unfortunately, though, the vibration was weak enough that I ended up missing more than half of the alerts
    • : Vibration is impossibly weak and unless you install an app like "Feel The Wear" to set additional buzzes (which are heard more than felt

    • The interface went from intuitive to annoying (even the dedicated polar activity button doesn't work unless your already start the polar app, which at that point defeats the purpose of the button, and swiping, which used to change between apps now changes the watch face, it's annoying as hell).Aside from that, but it crashes more

    • I actually need to downgrade my review after looking more closely at my GPS tracked workouts
    • Most of negative reviews here come from disappointed iPhone users who failed to notice that this is Android Wear device
    • INITIAL POSTJust some initial feedback to help balance out the negative reviews from iPhone users, as an Android user I clearly read the distinct differences in how it performs on both platforms
    • why you bothered as a review of your route will have you running through buildings and next to the roads you actually were on
