Polar H7 heart rate sensor

Phone not included

Polar H7 Bluetooth Smart Heart Rate Sensor

Understand your workout better and get more effective results with the Polar H7 Bluetooth Smart heart rate sensor. This triple-action heart rate sensor provides your real-time heart rate to mobile training apps, many Polar products and compatible gym equipment.

Here's how it works
board walkers

The Polar H7 heart rate sensor is compatible with Bluetooth Smart ready devices that support heart rate service (see compatibility list below). A separate smartphone app (such as the free Polar Beat) is required to view your heart rate data. When you use the H7 for the first time, you will need to pair it with your device. After that, wrap the H7 heart rate sensor around your chest and begin your workout.

Treadmill
Take it to the gym

Gym equipment with Polar heart rate technology inside will sync with the H7 heart rate sensor. This means you will get hands-free heart rate measurement. Plus, the H7 heart rate sensor picks up your heart rate only and not other heart rate monitors nearby.

Compatibility

• Compatible with the following Apple devices: iPhone 4S, iPhone 5/5C/5S, iPod touch (5th generation), iPad (3rd & 4th generation), iPad mini, iPod nano (7th generation)

• Compatible with the following Android devices with Android 4.3 or later: Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, LG Nexus 5

• Also works with Polar heart rate monitors using 5kHz transmission (also called GymLink). Compatible products include, but are not limited to: FT1, FT2, FT4, FT7, FT40, FT60, FT80, RS100, RS300X, RS400, RCX5. The H7 will also transfer heart rate information while swimming with these products.

Set Up Tips

Setup Tips

Keep these tips handy during your initial set up.

  1. Check that your device supports Bluetooth 4.0 (Bluetooth Smart) and its standardised heart rate service. The Polar H7 is not compatible with earlier Bluetooth versions.

  2. Check that you have paired the heart rate sensor with the application. If pairing does not work, ensure Bluetooth on the receiving device is enabled. When pairing, make sure you are far (10m) from other Bluetooth Smart heart rate sensor users. If your receiving device has a Bluetooth devices list, you can check if the sensor is paired. Polar H7 along with its ID number is listed when the sensor is paired. The ID number is printed on the back of the sensor. (Note: iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 do not show Polar H7 in the Bluetooth devices list.)

  3. Check that you are wearing the heart rate sensor correctly. Be sure to moisten the electrode areas of the strap with water, attach the connector to the strap and wrap the strap around your chest. Adjust the strap length to fit snug, but comfortable. Check that the moist electrode areas are firmly against your skin and that the Polar logo of the connector is in the upright position.

  4. Check that the device is positioned correctly. Keep the receiving device in front of you to ensure sufficient transmission range.

When this is working, it's great & does everything that I could want; especially when linked to the edmondo app. However, & it's a BIG "however"...it is constantly losing its power. The monitor plays dead & nothing, including changing the battery, revives it. An internet search showed this to be a common issue & it's resolved by opening up the battery enclosure & bridging the metal connectors with a paper clip!! It then miraculously comes back to life. I cannot tell you how annoying this is as it can be perfectly ok before you leave the house then, 5 minutes later, at the gym (& without your paper clip!!) it's dead so no recording of results....Grrrrr.

Even though my FT80 came with a HRM strap, I really wanted to synchronise in real-time my Polar data with the apps I was running on my iPhone; the Polar H7 allows you to do exactly this.

Setting it up was a snap with the watch finding it right away and the iPhone apps just needing to be connected individually. I should point out though that at first I thought it was faulty at the unit does not show up in the Bluetooth list as I expected, but is connected though each apps settings screen (the user guide makes no mention of how the device works with an iPhone.)

Once you set up the device and set off, you see your heart rate accurately displayed not only on your watch, but on the app too; something I've found to be *highly* motivating when comparing work-out data as you can easily see your fitness and endurance levels improving with actual data, not just a 'feeling'.

In summary then, a superb product which (for me at least) has really helped me track and improve my fitness, but make sure you use the latest version of your apps for it to work on the iPhone 5.

*update* Since posting this, many of the apps have been updated for the iPhone 5. I can confim that the H7 now works perfectly with the latest versions of the most popular fitness apps (Runkeeper, Endomondo etc.).

*2014 update* Happy to report that the same H7 that I bought a couple of years ago is still working perfectly and still using the original batteries. It also works perfectly with the new Polar Loop.

I use Strava every time I go on a bike ride and I wanted a HRM which would integrate nicely with it, this does the job perfectly.

I use Strava on a Nexus 5 running Android 4.4 KitKat and although Strava do not specifically mention this HRM as compatible it connected straight away and shows my heart rate throughout my activity.

I already own a Polar FT7 HRM and the H7 connected to the watch unit straight away so I could leave my phone in my bag/pocket and still view my heart rate on the watch during the ride. The chest strap supplied is the same as that which came with the FT7 and is very comfortable (you hardly notice its there), the transmitter which connects to the chest strap is slightly bigger than the one supplied with the FT7 but it is still very unobtrusive.

I can't comment on battery life because I haven't had the product long enough to do so, however, it is worth remembering to disconnect the transmitter from the chest strap when you're not using it or the battery will drain fast.

All in all a great product.

A couple of apps now compatible with this and Samsung galaxy S4. Also works perfectly with gym equipment. Remember to disconnect from strap to avoid flat battery.

POLAR WATCH & ANALOGUE USE: The Polar H7 sensor allows me to sync to my Polar watch and record my information on the analogue system. I go to the Polar website and easily download my workout info and it stores it all there allowing me to look at the basic stats. It also syncs with many gym tread machines, such as Technogym and sends your heart rate info there.

BLUETOOTH USE - The added feature (that i got it for) is it has a Bluetooth sensor which also allows me to sync it to my iphone and record data onto the Polar app (free to download). The latter gives a very basic breakdown of your stats immediately and no need to go home and download the information. (time, date, dur of exercise, calories burned, average heart rate and highest heart rate. It also shows heart rate on a graph for the duration of your activity) Still very a good level of info.

Polar wants you to buy upgrades in the app to get more detailed breakdowns - 4 upgrades all at £1.99-2.50 each.
1. set specific training targets
2. see the effect of your workout in real time
3. measure your fitness in 5 minutes
4. see how your running performance is developing)

But the entry level information the free app offers is more than enough to begin with.

FIT & FEEL
A very nice, comfortable and adjustable strap for all sizes. Easily put on and taken off. Easy to wash and maintain.

Note - The H6 version is Bluetooth only, syncs with the iphone app and doesn't have the analogue capability. So if you have a Polar watch, you won't be able to use it with the H6.

I am very impressed with this little gadget. At around £50, it isn't the cheapest model on the market but it does have lots of interoperability with various apps for iPhones as well as Android systems. I have used this with my iPhone 4S and my Nexus 7 (both via bluetooth) and find it to to be accurate.

I tend to use this heart rate monitor at the gym, connected via bluetooth to my iPhone, so that I can track stats using Endomondo, but as well as broadcasting the heart rate to my iPhone over bluetooth, it also broadcasts the rate over the traditional radio frequency so that it is displayed on the machines at the gym. My gym uses Matrix Fitness equipment.

So, how does it work? Well - you button the device onto the strap, add some water to the strap and put it on your chest. Then you go to your phone app and try to pair the monitor with the app. I found that I couldn't connect to the device from my phone using the traditional bluetooth menus; I had to go through the app and click "Pair heart monitor" (or similar text). This was a little unusual so perhaps it is a feature of the new Bluetooth 4.0 BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) - apparently this means it will sap less energy from your phone - this can only be a good thing. With regard the treadmills, static bikes and cross trainers, among other machines at the gym, I simply had to walk near them and my heart rate appeared on the screen. In fact, my heart rate was being broadcast to my machine as well as the machines either side of me - I found this a little quirky, but it didn't bother me. I'm not sure how more than one of these in close proximity would interact with the fitness machines; it could lead to false readings. However, I have yet to experience this.
