As mentioned earlier, the Polar Heart Rate Monitor Watch is marketed as a basic heart rate monitoring device. Hence, one cannot expect any sophisticated add-ons or features other than the basic timekeeping and heart rate monitoring functions. Hence, some people have complained and asked for stuff like GPS navigation. Unfortunately, Polar elected not to integrate a GPS system in the device and instead cut the price in order to make sure customers who prefer entry level prices can easily purchase it.
The Polar FT4 is easy convenient to use, thanks to a bunch of add-ons that are unique to polar heart rate monitors. The package includes the Polar training computer, WearLink+ transmitter, and the start guide helpful for starters and beginners.
