He eventually added Polar to his product line on Howtobefit.com and he is proud to have been representing the company and exclusively training with Polar Heart Rate monitors for 30 years.
Listening to your body is one thing, understanding what it is telling you is an altogether different story. Polar combines expertise in sports, physiology and electronics. They have been leading the way in technological innovations and heart rate monitors for almost 40 years. The first wireless EKG heart rate monitor was invented in 1977 by Seppo Säynäjäkangas, founder of Polar Electro, as a training aid for the Finnish National Cross Country Ski team.
