The primary goal of the A300 is to provide a single, wearable device that tracks daily activity, sleep (restful vs. restless), steps, and calories burned. While it’s not quite as full-featured as its bigger brothers, there’s still plenty to love about it, including:
Sends notifications to your wrist and smartphone when you have been inactive for too long
Offers daily personal activity goals and guidance on how to reach them
Provides motivation during training sessions by suggesting training targets and providing feedback on fitness benefits
Uses the Flow app (available free in App Store and Google Play) to offer more details on daily activity, training, and sleep including a monthly Diary and calorie expenditure
Pairs with Polar H7 heart rate sensor for accurate heart rate based training
Other things I really like about it are:
Waterproof housing (you’d think this would be a given, but many fitness trackers are merely water-resistant) means it’s plenty durable for frequent travelers
A big, bold easy-to-read display without a lot of superfluous numbers and icons
Add-on wristbands come in a rainbow of bold colors
For travelers who aren’t professional-level athletes or Red Bull stuntmen, it’s a perfect “just-right” solution for tracking fitness and activity levels.
