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.

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.

• 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 standardized 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 (33 ft) 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.

I pair it with the ismoothrun app for iPhone 4S and it works great!
Joy on the Run
The first one lasted a month, and the second lasted 4 months (used 5-6 times a week).

I am going to call Polar's customer service to see if it can be fixed.

Received the Polar H7 today. I have a Motorola Droid RAZR, running Ice Cream Sandwich. I wanted to use this device with Noom Cardiotrainer app, but it would not recognize the Polar H7, even after pairing the device with my phone in the Bluetooth settings. Thought I was doing something wrong, so I followed the instructions to a T -- I wet the section of the strap where the electrodes were located, I applied Buh-Bump electrode conductive cream to the strap... nothing.

I searched for some time around the Internet and found other users having the same problem. Tried a few different apps - Endomondo, HRNavi, etc. Nothing worked. I tried searching the forums on Polar's website (which I have other issues with, by the way) and found nothing. A bunch of other users with the exact-same problem.

So, I searched Google Play until I found an app that finally worked - MapMyRun. Its heart rate monitor settings picked up the H7 the first time with no issues. Then, I found that the developer that created MapMyRun had also created a set of apps such as MapMyWalk, MapMyFitness, MapMyHike, etc. They ALL work with the H7. So, I fired up a Shaun T Insanity video, strapped on the H7, launched MapMyFitness, and the app tracked my peak heartrate during my workout, the average heartrate, and even a calculation of calories burned. Worked flawlessly.

So, the issue is not my phone. The issue is not the H7. The issue is the apps that are not fully compatible with the H7. If you check the Google Play descriptions for the apps I tried above, they all say to use their apps with the Polar Wearlink+, not the Polar H7. Funny... it would have been nice to find this information BEFORE completing my purchase. But, you know...

Once I managed to hack my way into the package (I hate those plastic packages that everything comes in now) I had it synced up and working with Strava on a iPhone 4s in just a few seconds. Also worked fine with Endomondo app. Used it while cycling with iPhone in back jersey pocket - not problem staying connected and supplying the app with heart rate info during the ride. The battery life of the iPhone wasnt impacted - I get about 4hrs while using a GPS tracking app.

I've got about 150 miles in with this strap - no issues with connectivity, battery life or comfort. The strap connector is a small metal hook that fastens into an elastic loop. I haven't had any issue with it, but in general its not as nice as some other straps that I have used that had a more robust belt-like plastic buckle.

The native support, no dongle or anything else to plug into the phone, makes this really nice.

UPDATE: Bluetooth connection remains after you are done with your work-out. After stopping the recording of Strava or Endomondo, the Bluetooth connection remains b/t your phone (iPhone 4s in my case) and the HRM. I burned one battery before I figured out what was going on. When I'm done now I try to remember to actually kill the app.

UPDATE2: I have had a lot of trouble getting this thing to sync with my iPhones. I ran across a review that said you need to wear it for a few minutes without the battery in it to fully reset it. That worked wonders. I also think that when its really sweaty/wet after a workout its worth unclipping it to get the unit to shut off sooner and save the batter

I bought this unit to work with my new Ipod Nano 7th generation. I tried very hard to get it to be recognized by the Ipod. I could not do it. I called Apple and they said they did not know how to make it work with the Polar Unit but they advertise it wll; JUST LIKE POLAR does! So we did a conference call with Polar who then said they DO NOT KNOW HOW to make it work with the Ipod either. I was amazed that all the marketing says they will sync with each other but neither company know how to do it! I was then referred to the head of U.S. marketing for Polar and he didn't know how to use it either so he contacted GLOBAL marketing for Polar. Today I received instructions on how to sync it. Here they are:

Below are detailed instructions that our global help desk provided on using the H7 transmitter with the 7th generation iPod:

- Wear the Polar H7 hear rate sensor
- Go to iPod Nano Settings and check that Bluetooth is On. Note! iPod does not show H7 in Devices list.

- Enter Fitness Nike+ application and tab the "i" icon.
- Enter Nike+ iPod Sprot Kit and choose Heart Rate Monitor
- Check that Heart Rate Monitor is ON
- Choose Link from the list and tab the heart symbol.
Now the application starts to link the H7 sensor. When the sensor is linked press the iPod button to return.

- Enter Fitness Nike+ application and choose Sport (e.g. Run)
- Choose Heart Rate from the List
- Scroll to choose your sport and press Done
- Choose None (or other settings)
- Now you will see a heart symbol until iPod has found your heart rate signal.
- When heart rate signal is found, iPod will automatically change the display info. Now you can see your heart rate and you can Start the exercise recording.
