Polar for life! I used polar about 7 years ago and broke the watch. I decided to try others since then. I can honestly say that Garmin, my favorite clothing company Under Armour, and other companies I have forgotten, Polar is the best and the program reflects how great they are. Map my run and other programs are ok, but with the add-ons in Polar Beat, find it covers all needs and more. Any of my clients ask what heart rate monitor company to go with,I will always go with Polar.
Works great with Polar H7 heart rate monitor Great app to track all types of fitness activities from walking, jogging, swimming, cycling to many sports, including fitness activities at the gymn. So far used it while going on long walks and Cycling. Gives calories burnt, and fat burning % which is neat! Installed this app after I bought Polar H7 heart rate monitor. Pairs easily with H7 everytime I open the app. I am using it along side S-health. At one point H7 stopped pairing with S-health and my phone. The polar beat app somehow was still pairing H7
Great app but ... The new 2.1 version pairs with my H7 but doesn't monitor heart rate consistent. The program shows a flat line for many minutes before updating the heart rate and then shows flat line again for heat rate. Unusable since the latest update. Samsung Note 4 been working for years and was formerly 5 star rating.
I used to love this app When is polar going to do something about the feedback they are getting in reviews? Heart rate reads great for 20 min and then gets stuck at whatever heart rate I happen to be at. Not corrected with a restart. I know my monitor is working because it reads out on the gym equipment when I use it in the gym. Get it together or roll it back polar. I am now in the market for one of your competitors products.
Good app I'm new to heart rate training and this app helps to make it simple. Maybe I just haven't found it yet, but I wish there was a way to customize the names of the workouts. I'm doing Insanity and it would be nice to track my progress on each of the different workouts in the set.
The minimum app Polar are doing good at what they know....the kcal calculation. For the rest, still missing a lot of features compared to other apps. The new app only changed the UI...and now it doesn't sync with Google Fit anymore :/
Improved sharing feature: now you can share your own images with training data.
