Justin Chacona, Chief Marketing Officer at Polar Global, stated the following:

Polar is dedicated to making fitness make sense. There are plenty of fitness wearables on the market, but typically you're forced to choose between practicality, price and performance. With Polar Unite, we really focused on these three core challenges, and the result is a truly stunning product that's packed with all the essential fitness tools and technology you need to get moving, but a price that's reasonable.

One of the most powerful aspects of Polar products, including the Polar Unite, is the Polar Flow service that is available on your smartphone and on the internet. With the Polar Unite capturing an extensive amount of activity data, the Polar Flow website is an amazing resource for tracking progress, creating plans for success, and analyzing all the varioius aspects of your health and well-being.
