    "I bought my polar 430 directly from polar but love my tracker. I use it for every type of workout from weight training to cardio to hiking. The gps is great worked in the mountains for our last hike and the battery life was awesome"

    "I am an avid runner and exercise enthusiast, this device has all the bells and whistles that I need. I love the fact I can wear it on my wrist and my movements do not cause it to falter in any way. I like to keep track of heart rate, this monitor is very accurate. There is a learning curve to setting it up,however, once you set it up, you are done, and do not have to set it up again, I recommend!"

    "I bought this watch because I needed something lightweight for my morning run that could monitor my heart rate. This watch is everything I was looking for and more. I can barely tell I have it on, and it does a great job at monitoring my heart rate. "

    "Not bad, but not great either. First off this watch requires a firmware update right out of the box and the app is constantly receiving updates, too. Even with all these updates it still loses sync more often that it should. However, it is one of the most accurate fitness watches I've ever tried. Even without a chest strap the heart rate monitor is very accurate. I also love how it will automatically turn off some low-priority features when the battery gets low. Battery-life is decent with a charge lasting me about three days. The watch is very comfortable and the display is large enough to be easily read without being bulky. The touch-screen surface is a little soft and could scratch easily. If they could solve the sync issues this would be one of the best options in the reasonably-priced fitness watch categories."

    "I absolutely love the design of this watch. It is very light weight and comfortable. The screen is big enough to read. The only thing I had a problem with setting it up. The instructions weren't clear. Overall great buy!"

    "I am an avid runner and try to get a run in just about every morning. I've had issues with other watches, but this one works like a charm. I always get really accurate information. I love the color options that I had when selecting this watch. I've never had any issues with it not working while I was out. I can always rely on this watch."

    "This is an expensive fitness tracker. This doesn't seem like a great deal but it is a fitness tracker and it is compatible with a bunch of operating systems which makes it hard."

    "My daughter gifted me this watch and this has been useful since I am always jogging in the morning in an uphill terrain. I never thought that I can use this because I was not physically active before. I hope I can recover from my cancer quickly. 🙏"

    "I find today most business women may be using Android devices and not only apple. Is this even compatible with a range of features like what we have there? If I were shopping for a fitness tracker it would be ideal if it were a multi function device."

    "I've used Polar products in the past and been happy with their performance. I decided to upgrade from a simple HR strap with a watch to one with GPS and this hasn't disappointed. It is true that it isn't perfect, but for the price I think that is understandable. The watch syncs with my computer and does a reasonable job recording heart rate."

    "Pros: lots. It's an M400 that is lighter, has wrist based heart rate monitor, fast GPS acquire, and vibrating alerts. Cons: the initial setup, poor customer support, and frequent sync errors.The watch itself looks nice; similar to the M400 but different enough with its smoother touch and new wristband. If you had an M400 before, there won't be surprises, the menu is practically the same. "

    "If you are a man looking for a watch with GPS features, the Polar M430 is one of the best options that you can purchase. This watch is really well-made and priced decent for the quality given."

    "Good watch for the price but it has a proprietary cable so losing it would means not just any usb cable will suffice. Buttons get sticky after a while and OS is a bit glitchy and distance measurement is very inaccurate. "

    "I've used plenty of fitness tracking devices and smartwatches, and it's great to see one with a minimalist design that works equally well with both Windows and Mac. It's also stylish enough to keep on casually on a weekend, or even at work. "

    "The Polar M430 is great for runners, bikers, really any kind of aerobic activity. For CrossFit is has some short comings. Crossfit requires a bit of a slimmer. When I do HIIT or anything with free weights, it feels a bit too bulky. It doesn't really display the information I want to track such as PRs. "

    "The Polar M430 is a great smartwatch that is geared toward athletes and exercise enthusiasts. It features GPS and a heart tracking, and is also pretty stylish. Unfortunately, it is somewhat lacking in extra features and comes at a high price."
