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've been using the Polar H7 strap with my Concept2 rowing machine (with PM5 monitor) on a daily basis for over a month, and I'm very happy with it.

PROS:
- Works really well: I've experienced no disconnection problems.
- Very comfortable / lightweight / unobtrusive.
- The strap is elasticated, making it very easy to fit & ensures it stays in place too.
- Feels like a quality product

CONS:
- None!

COMMENTS:
- I initially wasn't sure what size to order, but then found this sizing guide (on a US website):

XS/Small - 20-30 inches
Med/XL - 30-45 inches
XXXL - 45-60 inches

- I have to "pair it" with my Concept2 rowing machine every time I use it - though this only take a few seconds each time (and I strongly suspect this a "feature" of the PM5 monitor on the rowing machine, not the Polar H7 strap).

- The Polar H7 instructions indicate that you should moisten the back of the strap before use, to ensure good electrical contact. The back of the strap where the monitor is located is plastic coated, so water rolls off it - so I simply moisten my chest instead (not a problem at all, but just thought I'd mention it!) - as I say, I've not experienced any disconnection problems.

- The heart rate monitor connects to the strap with a pair of clips. I have read that its good practice to disconnect one of the clips (to break the electrical circuit) when the strap is not being used, to prevent the batteries running down - this is extremely easy to do.

I bought this to replace my Zephyr HxM and I chose this model for 3 reasons.

Firstly it's Polar, which is a long standing brand with a reputation for making top of the range heart rate monitors.

Secondly, it supports Bluetooth 4.0. For those who don't know Bluetooth 4.0 is the low power version of Bluetooth, this means the heart rate monitor will go much longer on a single battery than a standard Bluetooth heart rate monitor. More importantly (for me anyway) it also means it is less of a drain on your phone battery while you are working out - important for those long runs when every battery % counts!

Finally rather than being rechargeable this uses a single CR2025 button type battery. My previous heart rate monitor came with a proprietary charging lead which I could never find when I needed it, with this one I can swap the battery out in seconds. No charging connectors and a sealed battery compartment means this is also waterproof so you can use it while swimming, assuming you have a waterproof phone.

An added bonus which I wasn't aware of when I ordered mine is that it also supports "gym link" so if your gym has compatible cardio equipment then all the machines will display your heart rate without you having to grip the handles on the machine. Tried it at my gym and it works like magic, you start running/peddling/cross training or whatever and your heart rate is detected in a couple of seconds. You don't have to set it up or anything.

Battery life is good, I always unclip one side of the unit from the belt when I'm not using it and I've been on the original battery for months with regular use.

Accuracy seems to be spot on with no spurious readings or drop outs during your workout.

I use my Polar H7 heart rate monitor most days now and never go to the gym or for a run without wearing it. I pair it via my iphone 6 to my polar beat app and also to my icardio app, which syncs with fitbit and then onto myfitnesspal.

The polar beat app is very good for seeing your heartbeat / calories burned / HR zones but does not talk to other apps so I have icardio also running in the background.

The HR monitor works every time and has helped me lose over 2 stone in weight, reduce my diabetic HB1AC sugar levels to normal (for the first time in 10 years!) and allows me to accurately understand how many calories I burn down the gym/ running, and then increases myfitnesspal with the number of calories I am allowed to eat to maintain my weight.

Happy days now that I clearly understand not only how to lose weight, but also keep it off. For me, the Polar H7 helps me massively to keep fit and motivated. no cheating allowed!
