Best heart rate monitor

I am not sure why some of these reviews are so negative. I have had the H7 for about a year now and have not had any problems with it. I love keeping all of my stats on my phone to help me make goals for myself and I can visually see when I am making progress. My heart rate has been consistently read (unlike a previous review). I have had no problems with my connection to my iPhone 5. I also really like having the GPS on the monitor/app. Other GPS monitors tend to be fairly expensive. I also ...

I am not sure why some of these reviews are so negative. I have had the H7 for about a year now and have not had any problems with it. I love keeping all of my stats on my phone to help me make goals for myself and I can visually see when I am making progress. My heart rate has been consistently read (unlike a previous review). I have had no problems with my connection to my iPhone 5. I also really like having the GPS on the monitor/app. Other GPS monitors tend to be fairly expensive. I also like that iit syncs with most fitness equipment. It automatically syncs to the spin bikes in spin class so I can monitor how I am doing. There are a few downsides. One, you have to have your phone close to you when you are using your monitor. This means you have to carry your phone around with you in the gym, which I hate. Two, it does not sync to myfitnesspal. I am sure this is something they are working on though since there are many complaints about this. Three, when I bought this in the store, I did not have size options for the band. I have a fairly small ribcage so the standard band does not fit snug. I have to tuck my monitor under my sports bra and sometimes the does not keep it up. I am not lowering my rating for this because I have this problem with all heartrate monitors.

Great idea poorly executed

I got this about a year ago and absolutely loved it. It would track my mileage, calories, etc just like the watch, but having it speak to me as i was running was awesome! Especially as the displays on the watches are small and hard to read without my glasses. Then one day it just didn't perform consistently. I'd be running like a mad woman and the monitor would state my heart rate was at 56. Then it would have it at 186. Then zero. I changed the batteries often, kept my heart rate sensor clea...

I changed the batteries often, kept my heart rate sensor clean, and still couldn't resolve the issue. Such a bummer for such a great concept. I also bought the Polar Beat upgrade and when i upgraded my phone, the upgrade didn't follow. Was definitely not happy with that as not sure why i would need to repurchase. Would love to see this product evolve!

Great idea, bad execution.

By

from Houston, TX, United States

I bought my H7 three weeks ago; but I just returned it today for a full refund. It worked for about a week and stopped working. I went through the troubleshooting list to make sure everything was set up correctly, and bought two new batteries. Nothing worked. The Polar Beats and Polar Flow software also very rudimentary. This product was rushed to market before it was ready.

Ehh

By

from Rockville, MD, United States

I got my H7 HRM in April to pair with my Loop. They work fantastic together when the H7 works. I have had to replace my H7 twice now and having the warranty is starting to cost me. I've changed the battery and have done other troubleshooting and nothing : (. This product would be great if i didn't have to replace it every other month. It does not keep up with my high activity level.

Frustratingly Unreliable

Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. Both the app and the monitor are unreliable.

Unit died in a month

By

from Boston, MA, United States

I got just over one months use out of this monitor. Replacing the battery made no improvement. Clearly not ready for general use.

Inconsistent

By

from Augusta, GA, United States

I was excited about this product and it worked well for a month then it would no longer connect to the Polar app on the iPhone 5 or with my Tom Tom watch. I've read several reviews on trying to fix it, but to no avail.

Works great with Loop

By

from Mobile, AL, United States

Bought the Loop first and enjoyed it much better than some of the competitors I have tried. I then got the H7. Took me a minute to get the sequence right on hooking it up through my loop and not using the cell app. Oonce I did that working in combo with the Loop has given me my best info on my work outs that I've ever had. Knowing my heart rate constantly without having to look past my wrist and then being able to upload my Loop to my cell phone when I'm done gives me instant info to know how beneficial my workout was. I recommend using the H7 with the Loop to give great feedback and help you get your work out more productive.

Perfect addition to my running app

By

from Covington, LA, United States

I am a numbers and statistics nut. I love comparing each run to see how I'm improving. The polar H7 has been working great with the mapmyrun app. Synced instantly to my iPhone 5s as well. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to know their heart rate while running. Just an fyi

Does not pair with iPone5S OS 7.1.1

By

from Drammen, Norge

I purchased the H7 today. I checked compatibility via the QR code on the package. My iPhone 5S with OS 7.1.1 should be avle to pair. Hovever it does not. So my rating is not 1 star. It is ZERO. When i surf the web I fins lots of people with the same problem. I will return in to the shop monday morning. Useless. Sad because my other Polar products work. Mail me if you fix this by monday. If not I switch from Polar to Suunto. And Polar beat I drop permanently.
