Polar Fitness Test & OwnIndex

The Polar Fitness Test resulting in an OwnIndex is developed to measure aerobic (cardiovascular) fitness. It predicts maximal aerobic power (maximal oxygen uptake, VO2max in ml.min-1.kg-1). This indicates how many millilitres of oxygen your body is able to transport and use per each kilogram of your body weight in one minute.

The test is targeted to healthy adults. It is fully automatic and can be performed at rest in less than five minutes. No other equipment such as treadmill is needed. It is an easy, safe and quick way to estimate your maximal aerobic power. It is as reliable as any other submaximal fitness test.

The Polar Fitness Test is based on:

  • Resting heart rate

  • Heart rate variability

  • Gender

  • Age

  • Height

  • Body weight

  • Self-assessment of the level of long-term physical activity (last 6 months)
