Ratings and Reviews
Middle-aged fat woman
To be honest I’ve only used this app a handful of times, after a recent purchase of a Polar H10. I wanted an accurate heart rate tracker for walking. The reviews I could find online were all for the 7 model, but those were highly favorable for accuracy. Pairing the device to the app could be easier, I’ve been walking and discovered it wasn’t paired, my heart rate wasn’t being recorded. I have learned to make sure to pair it to the app and NOT to my iPhone X. Strange, but I can live with that. The first time I used it I selected walking for the workout. I started it prior to actually being ready to leave the house, putting on sneakers, running upstairs for a tissue, and the coach’s voice told me to slow down! The next time I forgot to select the walking routine. Unbeknownst to me at the default running workout, I was disappointed not to be advised to slow down, or to receive any encouragement at all, being a humid 90 degree day and my fat little legs pumping away. I’m learning! I think the app itself is great. I want to know that I’m getting the most out of my walks, health and fat wise. I can see where my heart rate is, if I need to work harder or can slow down a bit, track my route, time, elevation, pace and fat calories burned. This app has all the bells and whistles plus dozens of types routines from mountain climbing to wheelchair activities.
Great! With one issue...
I love this polar bear sensor. It gives me accurate data (I’ve tested against other sensors) and it’s pretty easy to use. I am a competitive swimmer and I’ve started to use the goggle attachment. It’s somewhat irritating with a cap on, but I can deal with it. The issue I have is with recording workout data. I turn the device on, press the button twice (initiating the recording function) and I’m all set. When I finish my workout, I press and hold the button down until I know the device is turned off. At this point the data should be recorded on the device. Sometimes however, I will follow the above steps and when I turn the device on and open the app, there is no data from the workout - as in, the app and the device did not sync. I notice that the device syncs with the app fine most of the time, but I think the water exposure must mess with the button and cause it not to register when I do my final press of it. It is VERY frustrating because I look forward to analyzing my swim data afterwards, and when it’s not there, you can imagine that I feel like it was somewhat of a waste. Besides this problem which to me is major and to some may seem minor, I love the device very much!
Just received the H-10 chest strap HRM today! Put it on this afternoon and wore it fir hours afterwards. I was at my office and not working out but, even still, I did not find the strap around my chest obtrusive in the slightest. My Apple Watch has the heart rate app but it is just an instantaneous measurement snd difficult to get when in the midst of vigorous exercise. The app built into the iPhone 8+ for heart rate is worthless when working out and getting my pulse up in to the lower to mid 100’s—simply displays noisy signal. It is great to finally be able to see my pile rate at all times! I was concerned when I was looking for an HRM whether to buy one of the upper arm units or this H-10. The reviewers had stated that the arm unit was more comfortable over time BUT not quite as accurate. That was THE selling pint for me. I am 68 y/o and I want to know what my pulse is, not just a variable number around it. As an anesthesiologist I have used light-based pulse oximetry for almost 30 years. The technology is good but not foolproof. An HRM with electrical activity as the measurement tool is definitely the most accurate. Again, I am very pleased. Will see what happens as time goes by.
