How should I wear the H7 sensor? Moisten the electrode areas of the strap with water, attach the connector to the strap and wrap the strap around your chest. The heart rate sensor should be worn flat against the skin with the Polar logo in the upright position.
How should I clean the H7 sensor? Detach the connector from the strap after every use and rinse the strap under running water. Hang the strap to dry. When needed, hand wash the strap gently with a mild soap and water solution. Avoid moisturizing soaps. Do not soak, iron, dry clean or bleach the strap. Also, don’t stretch the strap or bend the electrode areas sharply.
How should I store my H7 sensor? Store the heart rate sensor strap and the connector separately to maximize the battery lifetime. Keep the heart rate sensor in a cool, dry place. To prevent snap oxidation, do not store the heart rate sensor wet in non-breathable material. Also, don’t expose the heart rate sensor to direct sunlight for extended periods.

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.
As others have said, I've tried it successfully with Endomondo, Ride with GPS, and Runtastic (using Bluetooth Smart setting). Runtastic needs the Pro to take Heart Rate Measurements.
All the apps I got working, I had to make sure it wasn't paired in the device (Note 3) blue tooth settings and pair it only in the app settings itself. Seems that I can only pair the H7 in only one app at a time. For instance if it was paired in one app, I could not pair it in another app until I removed it from the previous app.
Day 2 and I seems I like the Endomondo app best so far, after a workout it tells my my AVG. Heart Rate and Max Heart Rate and supposedly it can tie in the info toe MyFitnessPal, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet. Endomondo also has the biggest heart rate display (just choose the "Heart Rate" display setting). Only downside right now is that I seem to have to setup the heart rate monitor before my workout. I wish Endomondo would remember the settings when the app starts out fresh. Maybe there is a way to do this, but I haven't figured it out.
Ride with GPS sees the heart rate monitor, but I haven't figured out how to see the heart rate in that app. I don't bike so I really couldn't do a test. I was also able to get it to work in Digifit iCardio, but it is asking for a subscription to see the heart rate information.
Tried but was not able to get it working with Heart Rate Monitor, Heart Rate Status, or Heart Tracker apps.
Battery on the phone seems to die faster. Using an app to monitor your heart rate constantly wouldn't be recommended. If you want to monitor it for longer periods of time besides your workout you might want to save your phone battery by ordering a compatible heart rate monitor watch.
Another note is that when testing multiple apps, I had to sometimes reboot my phone to get it working. I think because another app would tie up the settings so that the next app could not lock onto the H7.
When setting this up in an app try the Smart Heart Rate Monitor option first, then the others if it doesn't work.
Water seems to work best to get the H7 started. I thought of buying the gel or creams, but at this point, I'm glad I didn't bother.
I am really enjoying my H7 and making sure I stay in the heart rate zones I need to be in and more importantly stay away from the max rate to prevent injury to my heart.
Customer service reached out to me but I haven't followed up with them until I tried a new battery.
I changed batteries and it synced fine. The new battery, however, is almost dead after 4 uses. I keep the strap and sensor separate, but keeping them a foot apart doesn't seem to work. I'm not sure exactly how far apart I'm supposed to keep them, but keeping them stored more than 12 inches apart seems a little silly...maybe a Faraday Cage would be a better option.
Other apps pick up the sensor immediately, but Polar Beat will not pick up the device at all.
