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!


Twenty plus years of using A heart rate monitor, and I tell my friends to go Polar

I began using one last century, and they have improved. I like the Polar system best but have used multiple other systems over the years. Early on I would get a different system each time I would but one, and I have generally had a system up at three different locations I live or work at. Currently I use a Polar 7, and a 10. I just gave my 9 to a good friend when visiting the UK for her to replace a wahoo I gave her several years ago. The ten slows remote(phone at home) recording when out on an activity, although I tend to keep my phone with me so I can be reached at any time.
The Polar’s are the most reliable and trouble free. I had used a different application because it was better at mapping the route, but the current Polar Application now has been upgraded to equal the best
The only thing on my wish list now would be for it to measure a heart rate recovery automatically when I end my activity. That is a pretty small point, and when I talk with my friends I tell them to go Polar, as I now do after trying multiple systems.
