18.07.15. Activity tracker Polar Loop 2 adds notifications . Polar just released a brand-new version of its activity tracker, the Loop 2 that now competes directly with the Fitbit Charge and Jawbone Up. Like its predecessor, the Loop 2 is all about passively tracking your activity during the day — it’s not just for when you’re running. It comes with an LED display very reminiscent of Nike’s FuelBand to display your activity. But this time, the display can also show your phone notifications, and the band vibrates. It’s not ideal, as it seems the Loop 2 can only display a few letters at a time, but it should be enough to get caller ID on your wrist and see if you should bother looking at your phone. It can also act as a silent alarm clock on your wrist, gently vibrating in the morning. It costs $120.
