Got this with the Polar OH1 armband heart sensor. Paired immediately, works well. Minus 1 star because the app is not as intuitive as it could be. So far I'm not struggling to find anything but it needs a little smoothing. Would be nice to have easier access to weight tracking.
Aaaargh! The H7 pairing is broken again! GPS tracking is seriously wonky. I feel like a blindly faithful women than keeps returning to an abusive spouse with the vain expectation that their behaviour will change. Some of the voice guidance features bug the hell out of me and I still can't turn them off individually. I wish my health insurance gave rewards for Strava workouts instead. Sadly, Polar (once the leader) has lost its way
It used to work great. Lately the UI freezes during a 4 hour bike ride. I'm still running Android nougat. Data logging appears to function in background while UI is frozen. Today, GPS speed calculation also froze while heart rate continued to log. The App was automatically updated last night. Problems started a few weeks ago. Updated App still broken as of October 26, 2017.
My sole use for this app is to monitor my heart rate while exercising for the calories burned, then transfer the info to a nutrition app, it doesn't transfer the info well. I have to continuously refresh the app to make the info move.
I'm running a Samsung A5(2017) phone with android 7 and a Polar H10. The app worked fine on this phone. Untill I upgraded from android 6 to 7. The H10 works fine on my old phone by does not connect with the Bluetooth on the A5 (new phone) anymore. I have contacted Polar and they asked me to do a few things. Said the problem is with android and not them. So now I have a H10 that only works on my old phone. I hope Polar stops blaming other people and can fix the bug quickly.
Heart rate monitoring is great as you'd expect, but I'd like to be able to add specific variable data. For example, I run on a treadmill but Polar isn't able to account for incline/elevation without GPS. If I could manually enter this, by statistics would be much more accurate. Considering you have to buy the additional packs for more info in app, I really feel Polar are not making enough effort here.
