Polar M600
This new smart wearable offers GPS tracking, heart rate monitoring, as well as support for music streaming without a phone, and has a pre-order price of $329.95 USD.

Having a GPS sports watch that can only stream music from a connected device might not be very comfortable, but the tiny crowd of GPS Android Wear smartwatches with music streaming support has just received a new member. Dubbed Polar M600, this smart wearable is the first one from Polar to feature a heart rate monitor but offers more than just that.

Polar M600 has a rugged, waterproof design (IPX 8 rating), with a 1.3-inch color Corning Gorilla Glass 3-protected display. It is powered by a dual-core MediaTek MT2601 processor, next to 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal storage. Its 500 mAh battery offers up to two days of autonomy when connected to Android devices, but only one day when paired with iOS devices. This smart wearable is compatible with smartphones running at least Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or iOS 8.2.

In addition to the above, the M600 features multiple sensors, a vibration motor, Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity, as well as GPS and GLONASS support. It can be already pre-ordered for $329.95 USD and will hit the market "later this year" in black or white.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
