Want to achieve long lasting
results from your weight loss program?
Experts say you need a
combination of diet and exercise. Sounds tough and strenuous
the exercise part. But the truth is, it doesn't have to be long and
Thirty minutes at the right
pace will make a huge difference, and tracking your calories will provide the
motivation and results you're looking for. Here's how it works:
OwnZone Paces You
Thirty to sixty minutes is the
range to shoot for to lose the weight. If you're like most people, you have a
problem pacing yourself so you can exercise long enough, and not too slow. The
OwnZone feature on Polar heart rate monitors will automatically determine the
effective target zone that will help you complete your workout. It listens to
your body during a brief warm-up and then sets your target zone for you. All
you have to do is keep your heart rate in that zone. Click here to learn more about OwnZone
OwnCal Tracks the Calories you Burn
Most people pay attention to
the calories that they eat, but not the calories they burn during exercise. By
tracking the calories burned on a daily basis, you can adjust your eating
accordingly and be more likely to reach your goal. With the
rate monitors with OwnCal, you can even track the fat that you burn during
exercise! Click here to learn more
OwnIndex Checks your Fitness
Being the proper weight is
important, but being fit and healthy is just as important. Polar heart rate
monitors with OwnIndex have a built in fitness test that you can take while
sitting in a chair. With OwnIndex, you can check your fitness to make sure that
while the weight is coming off, you're also improving your fitness. Tracking
improvements will provide a motivation that will make it a little easier to get
out there and exercise. Click here to

That's why we say losing weight
comes down to three things; diet, exercise and Polar Heart Rate Monitors.

Automatically establishes your effective heart rate
To get an effective workout,
you must exercise in your personal target heart rate zone. This zone will vary
from day to day based on your fitness level and the effects of daily life.
OwnZone will find this zone for you during your pre-workout warm-up.
For most adults, OwnZone
corresponds to about 65-85% of your max heart rate. This is the effective zone
for anyone looking to lose weight, improve fitness, or simply maintain health.
With OwnZone, you will know each day how hard you should be exercising to get
the results you're looking for. No more guessing!
your calories burned and fat percentage.
Now there's a calorie
calculation that you can count on. Any effective weight loss program relies on
the amount of calories you intake and burn. Unlike most exercise machines,
OwnCal accurately calculates the amount of calories and fat you burn based on
your personal data and your intensity, or heart rate. When you use most
exercise machines, they calculate calories based on the weight you input, the
speed and the incline. If two people the same weight exercise at the same speed
and incline, they will get the same calorie number. There's no personalization
because the machine is not taking into account any information from the
individual's body to calculate the calories. Just step off the machine while
it's running and you'll see the calories accumulating. So who's burning the
calories, you or the machine?
OwnCal factors in heart rate
to give you a more accurate measurement and a realistic way to monitor your
weight loss program.

OwnIndex Measures your fitness level
and monitors results.
It's now possible with OwnIndex
to test your fitness level, set a baseline to measure against, and track your
improvements. In less than 5 minutes while resting, the Polar Fitness Test
calculates your OwnIndex, a measure of your fitness level. You can now track
your fitness level while relaxing in your home.
OwnIndex is based on a
sophisticated measurement that only Polar can do, called heart rate
variability. Combining this measurement with personal data (sex, weight,
height, age and activity level) allows OwnIndex to calculate your predicted VO2
max, an indicator of aerobic fitness. So you can see where you are before even
starting your exercise program, and take a monthly test to track your
improvements and stay motivated.
The Polar OwnFeatures work
because they're based on information they get directly from you. Your body
provides data back to the watch, which then provides the guidance that you need
to exercise effectively. It's like an automated system, and all you do is tell
it about yourself and wear it. It personalizes your workouts, tells you when
you're doing it right, and let's you track improvements. It's the smart heart
rate monitor that works because it's personal to you.
