Suddenly, sporty and stylish heart rate monitors are all the rage, but did you know the entire industry began back in the early 70’s with Polar? Not in America, like so many fitness products these days, but in Finland. That’s right, some of the first “wireless” products have been evolving that long and originated in one of the most rugged places on earth. Polar for over 30 years now has continued to innovate so that we can get closer to our own hearts.

But why? How? When did it all start? The first heart rate monitor Polar released was known as the Tunturi Pulser and it was worn on the finger tip. Then they moved directly into wireless and in 1982 they unleashed the Polar Sport Tester PE 2000. Throughout the rest of the 80’s they spent their time integrating the technology with computers so that once the 90’s arrived Polar could begin taking sports performance tracking to another level.

A Heavy Hitting Globalized Brand

If you head on overt to Polar’s website you can feast your eyes on highly documented studies, comparisons, measurements, and scholarly work on the subject going back through their entire company history. By 2020 the Smart Coaching industry will be providing people with what amounts of micro-health-computers that train, track, schedule, remind, and coach people into better bodies both inside and out.

Here’s a short list of the types of benefits that Polar is exploring and pushing the envelope to bring into a new era:

• A personalized activity guide that keeps people progressing and training.
• A feedback loop that provides constant updates on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
• Endurance programs, fitness tests, relaxation (stress) tests, etc.

Keep in mind that all of it can be synced with your smartphone and PC. You can truly see where your energy is coming from and where it is going. And yet, to everyone else all it looks like is a simply bracelet.
