Polar is breaching into the realm of fitness watches with its new ‘Powered by Polar’ watches that infuse its technology. The company makes its 25 fitness algorithms available for other brands to use including sleep tracking, health tracking, and more. This way, third-party companies will not need to conduct years of research to create their own products.
The first watch to implement Polar’s framework is Casio’s latest G-Shock G-Squad GBD-H2000. Some of the details include the chunky design that is retained along with the fitness science by Polar as well as its gyroscope. It should also feature its solar-assisted charging capabilities, and GPS system, along with a range of sensors such as an altimeter, compass, thermometer, and barometer.
