First off, this product works amazingly well. Works 98% of the time on the first try with no interference, amazingly easy to upload and track information via [...]. Please note several things that may require this item to not work on your computer that many people overlook:

1) The installation software MUST be downloaded via Internet Explorer.
When I tried to download the software via Google Chrome or FireFox, the Daemon would not install at all, which rendered the product useless, as this daemon file is what allows the upload to the polar website. If you don't download the software via internet explorer, odds are it won't work. Tried this on 4 computers, none of which would install it correctly using ANY browser other than Internet Explorer.

2) The FlowLink itself can NOT sit on a metal surface and successfully sync your Heart-rate Monitor.
It says in the instructions, in smaller print, that the syncing process is based on a magnetic field to transfer data between your watch and the flowlink pad. If the pad itself is on a metal surface, such as a metal desk, the sync between the watch and your computer has a *very* high chance of failure. I experimented with this and found that it only successfully synced about 30% of the time on a metal surface compared with 98% success on my wooden desk. Please take note of this.

3) Despite what the website and other reviewers say, the software and the product are both very compatible with OS's.
This product is NOT compatible with a Mac, unfortunately, but it is widely compatible with Windows. I have installed on 4 different machines, 2 running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, one running Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit and one running Windows XP 64-bit.

I was not plagued with the uploading problems many other reviewers had but what use is uploading the data to the polar personal trainer website when you can't analyze the data? I like to graph and do statistical analysis with the data. To this end, I copy the information into an Excel spreadsheet where I can work with the information. It also lets me look at much more of the data at one time than Polar Personal Trainer does. Save your money as you can read the data off of wrist unit and type it into a spreadsheet where you can do something with it.

I am a competitive age group triathlete and recently purchased a Polar RS 300 HR montitor and footpod that work great. I decided to purchase polar products because they do make great HR montitors and have a good reputation with their online polarpersonaltrainer. I received my FLOWLINK today in anticipation of simpliying evaluating my fitness. It simply DOES NOT WORK. I have spent all day performing multiple rituals hoping for proper alignment all to fail. Purchase this product with an open mind. I would not recommend this product to my friends.

TAKE TWO:
Amazon has been great. I returned my initial flowlink and within 2 days received my replacement. It again does NOT work. I thought that it might be my computer; however, it does not work another CPU. I can NOT even get it to Align more or less flash green. Is it my watch? I'm very unhappy with this product.

I've e-mailed polar's customer service. I'll update my review pending their response.

Week 1: Automatic computer response replying that they will post reply in 24 hrs. 7 days later no customer support feedback.

3 Months later: Polar has finally acknowledged that they have received the products in Feb. It is now mid March and Polar continues to send my automatic computer responses appologizing for the delay, however, they are experiencing an increase in volume.

Respectfully,
J from Texas

This little device works very well. After reading other reviews I was iffy in its function. Simply place this on a plastic lid, in a ceral bowl, or a plastic folder. Never had an issue with it ( no metal contact). I do not use the "remember me" box when loggin in. Fast upload even from a netbook. Apple users rejoice, it works.

Instructions that come with Flowlink, simply said, they killed a tree for naught. Put a sticker on it "see Polar website for use" and be done with it.

How to use, since Polar is somewhat lacking in the information department:

1) Do not plug in to computer
2) Download websynch 2.0 (etc) from polar site.
3) Reboot computer
4) Plug Flowlink in to computer.
5) click program if it did not start (icon will be a red heart, turns green when heart rate monitor is placed (and working) on it)

* The instructions on the webiste will have you clicking links, leaving you with a "WTF, I just want to make this work and be done with it", again all you need is websynch 2.whatever and a reboot after installing.

* Do not use Remember box as this can cause issues, like weekly diaries, files not getting uploaded etc.

I use a Polar FT60 Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) and have had no issues (techincal) with both HRM or Flowlink. Side note, Instructions are piss poor at Polar site, Please use the forums as there are people who really know how to set up and use these HRM, they are not Polar staff. Polar is really good at making a product and placing features in these HRM, put suck so really freaking bad its well beyond pathetic as far as explaining what these features do, what senarios to use them, and what the outcome will be of XYZ. In Summary good product, crappy instructions.
