Love the app. I have it for... 3 years now? I paid for the full features, because it was like $10 for life, or something like that?? I don't remember, but I've used this app on multiple devices over the 3 years, and with the h6 I originally purchased. I love it - I love the vocal coaching in runs, I love the graphical information afterwards, I like the data... I like all of it. It helps motivate this fatty to stick with it. I can't say it's a silver bullet, but after I've fallen off for a bit I can always come back to it. I highly recommend this product.
Very good app. Only thing I would like is after a session is made and saved to be able to edit the distance run. Sometimes I save the session and forget to put the distance I made in the gym and cannot edit it later on. Appart from that, awesome! Also the fitness test is inaccurate and not worth the in app purchase. I mean I'm only training for 6 months, 2 times a week and got 58 score, near elite, not true :)
I like this app but it lacks customizable training programs. This could be a 5-Star app if Polar integrates the customizable targets from it's Flow app (Phased and Quick Targets) into the Beat app's "Benefit Target" feature. This together with existing voice guidance would make this app awesome.
It will not connect to my cell phone. It just keeps searching and nothing happens. After spending more time trying to sync the sensor to the phone app. I realized it was an error on my part, I didn't have the sensor on my body properly. Now that I have fixed that problem, it works just fine!
I use this app to record all my fitness intensity levels with the polar H7 and it works great. My only suggestion would be to enter a specific HR target such as 135 to 140 BPM. I find their ranges not intuitive but I probably just need to play with them more.
On Android Oreo, it would be good to see the time and distance on the locked screen. So we don't have to unlock the phone during the running. It's always difficult if the hand wet. Thank you.
With this release, we fixed minor bugs to improve the quality of the Beat app.
