Chest HRM's are supposed to be one of the more accurate ways to measure your heart rate when exercising and seeing that 3 of the 4 HRM's I had were all within a couple heart beats from each other makes me believe the Polar (and the Samsung and Atlas) are fairly accurate in their readings. The fitbit, well, if it wasn't for the auto sleep profiling, that one would be going back to the store since it doesn't seem to be very accurate for it's intended purpose, being a fitness watch.
All in all, i'm very pleased with the Polar H7 HRM and I'll continue to use that for my cardio exercises and I'll rely on the atlas and Samsung when i'm doing weight exercises since wearing a strap is a bit annoying to me when i'm lifting weights. The fitbit... well... if I don't return it, it'll just be relegated to being a sleep monitor and that's it as I don't trust it for measuring anything else.
Download the free app "Polar Beat" to perfectly sync with this on your phone. Just know that you have to turn on your phone's Bluetooth but sync the Bluetooth in the app. The app keeps a detailed history for you that isn't limited (so far I have 3 months of daily workouts stored)
I use this for basically every workout of mine, and I workout everyday. The combo of the app syncing with the HRM is beyond perfect. If your phone is just in the room and you've tapped to start your workout on the app, it will track your info. Doesn't have to be right next to you nor does your screen have to be on.
It can connect to GPS as well and track your distances/routes as well as how what your pace is.
First pic is a screenshot during the workout the following 2 are after the workout is complete, the summary it gives you. The last pic is just showing you how the GPS tracker works with a walk a took my dog on.
Oh you don't have to have cell service on to use the app, it doesn't use your data.
I have a fitbit HR wrist watch and I like it. For something that you can wear and read your heart rate all day long it works pretty well overall. The only issue with it is that I started doing HIIT traing (High Intensity Interval Training) and it doesn't quite work for that since I increase my heart rate from 120 - 175 within a very short period of time. It just couldn't keep up and would lose my heartrate completely so that all I saw on the display was -- or my heart is pounding really hard and I know that it is probably close to my upper end but fitbit still says it is 145.
So I needed something that was going to track it more accurately and this was recommended to me by a fitness trainer at my job. I love the actual unit. It is really easy to put on and take off and comfortable enough that occasionally I forget that it is even there after my workout and I forget to take it off and notice it again hours later. I feel like it is really accurate to what my heart rate is and is great since I've stared the HIIT training and needed to know how hard to push myself for those sections.
The polar app that it comes with is decent. It has a lot of different exercises to pick from depending on what you are doing and works with the GPS on your phone if you want to use it for distance running, biking hiking etc. I really didn't use any other fitness apps other than the one for fitbit and it isn't compatible with that. But if you are using other apps for your fitness training it is supposed to be compatible with many of those. I have found that overall the calories burned section isn't a lot different from the fitbit. For an hour long session according to Polar I generally burn 25-50 more calories than the Fitbit counted. The main difference is in my heart rate tracking. The average is only 1-2 bpm off but the during exercise there are times when they differ by as much as 20-25 bpm
This has been a great additional tool for me to use in my endeavor to train for the Spartan a 8+ mile 25+ obstacle event. My only complaint is that it isn't compatible with Fitbit so maybe when this fitbit dies I'll swap to an all day HR unit that is compatible with the Polar monitor.
