"Polar GoFit is the coolest thing in the gym! I have taught Physical Education for 27 years and used Polar heart rate monitors for over 20 years and this is the very best. The 6th grade class put the sensor on very quickly and everything worked perfectly the very first time. They were so excited to see what their heart rate was and the motivation level was really high.
At the end of class students could see what they had accomplished and the badges based on number of minutes were a big hit too. I didn’t have to do anything but log onto the app and we were up and running. This is absolutely amazing!"

"Having used Polar Heart Rate Monitors at my school for the past ten years has brought many benefits to the Physical Education Program at Desert View Elementary School. The monitors are the corner stone of my physical education program. My students understand how to exercise using a heart rate monitor and are aware of the advantages of their use, truly giving them a lifetime skill for assessing their fitness levels for the rest of their lives.
My administrators have come to appreciate the dilemma of assessing students in a PE class as some students would have been graded with an “F” for effort if left to the principals observation and not the data provided by the monitors. If reading and math had a tool that could differentiate and assess how well the student were doing in those subjects, school boards would be all over them. It’s time to spread the word that PE has THE cutting edge technology for assessment!"
