Polar Loop 2 is here with notifications and vibration alers

Polar Loop 2

Polar has unveiled the Loop 2, an updated version of its activity tracker, almost two years since the original Loop.

The new Loop 2 retains many of the core features but adds smartwatch style features such as smartphone notifications, inactivity alerts and vibration functionality. The activity tracker will display smartphone notifications for incoming calls, messages and calendar alerts, as well as measuring distance, steps, sleep and calories. It is compatible with iOS initially, which also hooks you into Polar Flow through the app. The Android app will be coming soon.

The Polar Loop 2 is priced at $/€119.90 and it will be available from July in the US, and globally from November 2015.
