Designed as a companion to any compatible fitness application, the Polar H6 Heart Rate Monitor Belt's physical connection to the wearer and subsequent transmittance of data via Bluetooth® ensure that it can be used around others without running the risk of suffering from interference. Plastic electrode areas on the reverse side of the strap directly contact the chest and detect heart rate, ensuring that data obtained by the device pertains solely to its wearer and nobody else - the connector then sends the heart rate signal to the receiving device. The Polar H6 heart rate sensor is compatible with Bluetooth® smart ready devices that support heart rate service. A separate application is required to view heart rate data on the receiving device (for example, a smartphone). If you have a polarpersonaltrainer.com account, Polar Beat automatically synchronizes your training files to it. Please note that you must sign in to your polarpersonaltrainer.com account when starting Polar Beat for the autosync to work. Battery levels are displayed on the receiving device if it supports a Bluetooth® battery service. Additionally, the device is water resistant though it must be noted that Bluetooth® wireless technology will not work in water.

I am able to monitor different phases of my heart rate at rest, during exertion as well as post exertion, with ease.
This is a brilliant improvement on the watch heart rate monitors and have definitely it a five for performance thus far.
My only gripe is that the band itself could be more secure and if I could give stars on this it would be a four, however, this said and as mentioned above the performance of the monitor gets five stars, as it very functional in my health and fitness regime.
This is was easy to set up though I feel the quality of the clasp is much poorer than the old push fittings. It's a plastic clip which looks fragile to me. Make sure you get the right size - I got M - XL and there isn't much room left and I only have a 40" chest.
In my ipad and iPhone the strap did not show up under Bluetooth settings. I had read about this though and as expected it showed immediately in an appropriate app.
I've observed that you can in fact use more than one app at a time and that they all work in the background too. I suspect this is as much the way iOS works as the strap, but still useful.
This version does not connect to gym equipment, only via Bluetooth. There is another, more expensive, model if you need that as well.
All in all very pleased so far and would recommend it.
I bought this sensor because it seemed to offer the best of all worlds with Bluetooth for iPhone apps and the ability to use with a Polar monitor or gym equipment. I haven't tried this, yet.
My only niggle at the moment is the strap buckle/connection is a bit fiddly compared with my old Polar strap. Very minor, tho.
It works brilliantly with both my Windows Phone and my iPhone, in fact this works better with my Windows Phone (Lumia 820) than the H7 did. It works with miCoach on Windows Phone and the iPhone, and on iPhone I've use d it with MapMyFitness and Endomondo. Incidentally it also works with the same apps on the iPod Touch 5th Generation.
