Polar M600 – Stylish Android Wear for Fitness Enthusiasts?

The guys at Polar have set out a new path: A fitness watch with Android Wear – combining both fitness tracker and stylish smartwatch into one single product – the new M600. They basically stepped it up again from their already great M400 (read our Review), in order to  set a new industry standard for smartwatches. You basically get all the popular Polar fitness functions like the tracking of your heart rate, the amount of calories that you have burned and of course your sleeping patterns. On top of that it includes the many advantages of being on the fairly open Android platform, thus allowing you to use 3rd party applications from the Google Play store.  And this is where the watch will probably outshine a lot of its competitors. There are a ton of cool apps that you can use to improve the individual experience and track virtually any sport or activity you throw at it.
