Polar Combines WIth Adidas to Make Project Fusion

Polar and Adidas: United, Awesome and Expensive

Adidas is known for their fitness gear, apparel and accessories. Polar makes great heart rate monitors. Integrate the two together and you have a unique fitness training system called Project Fusion.

The clothes (called it adiStar Fusion Apparel) feature integrated soft textile heart rate monitor sensors built right into the fabric so there are no hard parts or irritating seams. The sensors communicate with the Polar watch, so you can monitor your heart rate. If you get the adiStar Fusion shoe, it has a sensor that fits in the midsole so you can track your distance and speed, which is also displayed on the watch. Check out the video to see what I mean.
