Workout Wednesday: Polar Watch

I recently purchased a Polar FT4 heart rate monitor watch which is one of the more basic watches that Polar carries. I initially wanted the watch to get more accurate numbers for calories burned when I was running outside or doing other workouts that didn't have a calorie count on the machine, what can I say, I'm an accountant it's all about the numbers to me! But after I started using it I don't really look at the calories burned but rather my heart rate itself. It motivates me to push harder to keep my heart rate in a high range which in return causes more fat burned. Once I'm done with the workout the watch gives me stats like how long I was in my goal heart rate zone and the highs and lows as well as total calories burned. If you want a more fancy watch you should check out their other models that will also tell you how much fat you burned and other great options. I kept it basic because I'm focusing more on my heart rate more than anything when I work out. Does anyone else use a polar watch, maybe a different model? I'd love to hear others feedback!


Here are some of my recent eats!
