Polar GoFit User Guide for Students

Welcome to the Polar GoFit web service! Polar GoFit is a part of the Polar Physical Education solution. It enables teachers and students to track students' heart rate data during PE lessons, evaluate students based on this data, and share reports. It also enables teachers and students to track students' daily activity and the time spent in different activity zones. In addition, it provides a tool for organizing fitness testing and tracking the students’ results.

Teachers can use Polar GoFit for organizing courses and fitness testing. They can also follow and document each student's effort and improvement in and out of the classroom. The web service makes it easy to create reports and track long-term progress. The data can also be shared with parents and administrators.

Students can use Polar GoFit to review their heart rate data, daily activity, and fitness test results. Polar GoFit helps them learn a healthy lifestyle.

Polar solutions for activity monitoring and heart rate monitoring give teachers objective evaluation tools. They allow evaluation based on effort, not just skills. The idea is that teachers do not give grades, but students earn them instead.

Fitness testing provides accurate and reliable information about students' level of physical fitness. It provides teachers (and parents) a way to teach the students about the importance of being active and fit throughout their lives.
