Workout with the Polar FT60 so you don’t have to work out with your spandex wearing brother in-law. Yours to?Polar FT60 does everything “Frank” can do but has the added advantage of not being Frank. Win, win.

So Why You Don’t Want To Work Out With Frank

  1. He’s weird and always yelling at you to “push through” and “get serious” even when your not at the gym?!
  2. He always shows up wearing biking shorts and a singlet tank top tucked in?!
  3. He always gets you to spot for him doing way too much weight and you end up getting more a workout than him?!
  4. He can’t tell you your heart rate!
  5. He can’t tell you how hard you’re training or how hard you should be training!

Why You Would Rather Mr. FT60?

  1. FT60 looks cool and so you look cool wearing it!

  3. FT60 gives you feedback on the effect of your training!
