Overall this does exactly what I want it to do, but I do get the feeling it overestimates calories burned. Regardless, it always connects to my HRM and the rolling chart makes gauging effort really easy. Update: I recently got a Google Pixel phone which runs on Nougat 7.1.1 and my Polar H7 no longer get pairs. I had previously used it four times with the new phone without problem, however it no longer works.
Since this app has been updated to connect to the new H10 sensor, it no longer gives me a reading for calorie expenditure. For me the most important aspect of this app, is to enable me to train according to calories exercised. As it doesn't do that anymore, I've no option but to throw my chest sensor in the bin and go and buy a different brand. I wouldn't recommend Polar to anyone.
Latest update doesn't work. Shows my hr monitor and says it's pairing, will even show me my hr, but doesn't count calories anymore. It just stays at zero. Doesn't always pair with my strap even though they're made by the same company and supposed to work together. Constantly uninstalling and reinstalling the ap to try to get it to work.
Struggling to get my H7 to connect to Beat app with latest version. It locates the H7 and shows it in the list of devices available to pair. However when I press "pair" the pairing process begins but stays in that state (red circle going around ). If I go to previous screen sometimes it shows "paired " and sometimes not. If I use the app when ot shows "paired " full functionality of H7 is not available. Sensor or software?
Tried the polar heart rate monitor on three different occasions. Each time I've used it, it hasn't given me a heart rate for my workout. I've downloaded the app as directed by tech support and continue to experience the same problem. Wouldn't recommend for heart rate monitoring.
No way to set custom zones for your heart rate which is why 99.99% people buy a monitor. Ex. so you know when your heart is working over 85%. It shows the zone but without a beep or vibrates youll never know when your in or out a zone.. kinda stupid
