The idea behind Polar® was to create a portable heart rate monitor that would accurately record heart rates during training. The company was founded in 1976, near the city of Oulu, Finland – a region renowned for its technological research and surrounded by some of the most challenging environments in Europe. The area was quickly identified as the perfect setting to test the company’s pioneering equipment to its limits. In 1979, Polar filed its first patent for wireless heart rate measurement and in 1982, launched the first-ever wire-free wearable heart rate monitor, changing the way athletes trained forever. Now, over 40 years after that first moment of inspiration, Polar provides the most comprehensive product range in the industry. From basic models that help motivate and inform beginners and regular exercisers to complete training systems for world champions across numerous disciplines, you’ll find everything you need to discover a winner within yourself.
