Product Description

Using coded 5 kHz transmission, this Polar WearLink+ transmitter Nike+ device picks up your heart's signals and transfers that data to the nikeplus.com Web service with compatible Nike+ devices. The soft textile chest strap seamlessly adapts to your body shape, bringing full freedom of movement to your training. With its hook mechanism, the transmitter is just as quick to put on as it is to take off.

This product is especially ideal for those who already have a Polar Heart Rate Monitor and use the Nike+ system to track their distance and pace. The Polar Wearlink Transmitter Nike+ adds heart rate tracking to your Nike+ system. You can also use it to view heart rate information on fitness equipment at the gym. The connector is water-resistant and sports a replaceable battery. The textile strap is machine washable.

I am using this with the recently-released Nike Sportwatch+ GPS, and it works great. The sensor seems very responsive and was easy to set up.

On the watch, I had to:

- Start a run
- Choose Options --> New Sensor

The watch found the heart rate monitor almost immediately and worked flawlessly from then on.

If you have two or more nike+ systems and you are trying to set them up, you may get a "too many sensors" message from the watch, and may need to distance the woud-be pairs of watches and monitors from one another while pairing. However, once paired, the watches will talk to their respective sensors without any evidence of interference. I believe this is because these sensors are "coded" to prevent cross-talk between nearby transmitters and receivers.

The strap is reasonably comfortable and I'm getting used to it quickly. Parts of it are a relatively comfortable elastic, and other parts of it are a vinyl-like material that seems almost like fake leather, which seemed like an odd texture to wear while running, but it certainly hasn't been an issue for me.

It's great to know that I can swap the transmitter onto new / different straps if needed, and that my girlfriend can use her transmitter directly with one of the sensor-equipped sports bras that works with Polar transmitters. The replaceable battery is also a huge plus, as I can't imagine throwing this thing away just because the battery died!

It is important to pre-moisten the electrodes on the included strap, or readings will be sporadic (dropping to 0) intermittently until you get sweaty.

I have an IPOD nano 6th generation with Nike+ enabled. With the addition of the Polar WearLink+ I was able to get my heart rate during my running exercise. Works great! Easy to link to the nano.

I got this to use with my iPod nano 6G (FW 1.2) and the Nike+ sports kit. I've been nursing a leg injury that prevents me from running/jogging, so I wanted something to record workouts on an elliptical machine (our gym doesn't have the Nike+iPod machines).

The HR strap pairs easily with the Nike+ receiver. Once you start a HR workout, you're presented with a bunch of excercise types. The iPod records your average and max HR during the workout and uses a simple formula to calculate your calories (note - calories do not show up on the nano, you see them after uploading to Nike+).

As for the strap itself, it's moderately comfortable. I have a Polar T31 that came with my treadmill and I find that to be more comfortable as well as easier to put on. The transmitter is a lot smaller than I expected ... not nearly as big as it looks in the pictures. The good thing is that the strap is washable, so if/when it starts to get funky, just throw it in the wash (the manual says to put it in a garment washing bag).

Lastly, I wanted to mention that I had a tough time getting the HR-only workouts to sync to the Nike+ sites. I eventually got it to work, but it took some iPod hackery and a few back/forth with the Nike+ support guys.

I don't understand the negative ratings because this does not work with all Apple devices.

It is 5 stars because it does what it is advertised to do. Just because it doesn't work with an iPhone 4 does not mean it is a 1 star product. The buyer should get 1 star for not making sure they have a compatible device.

I have a Nike GPS sport watch and it hooked up in 2 seconds when I selected "new sensor." I took it out for a run and it worked seamlessly. The heart rate information is nicely displayed on the Nike+ web site.

So, if you want a Polar heart rate monitor to work with nike GPS sport watch, then have no reservations in buying this product.

There are some things I can't speak to. I cannot speak to its durability. I assume it is similar to other polar devices in its build quality.

I've used a Polar HRM for over a year. When I added on a Nike+, I didn't really consider spending the money to get the compatible chest strap. However, my old chest strap stopped working reliably even after a battery change. I decided to just go ahead and get this one, and it's worked out just great! It works with my existing Polar HRM and my Nike+ transmitter which is plugged into my Nano. No complaints!

This transmitter is the only one that I could find that is compatible with the Nike+ system. It works great! I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a heart rate monitor to use along with the Nike+.

I purchased this the NIKE GPS watch and the polar transmitter as a package from Amazon in Feb 2012.
When I tried pairing the polar transmitter to the watch, the watch was able to detect the transmitter but was not able to add it into the menu.
I went on to the internet and found out that the fault lies in a manufacting defect for a series or polar transmitters. The starting serial numbers are listed and mine happens to be on of them. This was what Nike posted to one of the affected customers:

"Can you verify the if the serial number on your Polar WearLink+ starts
with one of the following combinations: C131-C135, C139, C141, C143, C145,
C147, and C151. If so, here is what you need to do: 1. Have your Polar
WearLink+ heart rate transmitter handy so you can provide the serial number
to Polar. 2. Contact Polar. For quickest resolution, simply send them an
email (at customer.service.usa@polar.fi) and provide them with your name,
mailing address, phone number, and device serial number, and they'll ship
you a replacement."

Since I am not staying in the US, I had to personally go down to the local polar dealer to do a one to one exchange. The replace unit works perfectly and does not contain the starting serial numbers listed.

So, before you make this purchase, please check with the seller whether the transmitter contains those numbers.
