I have this heart rate sensor for two weeks now and I have used it in several runs with my iphone 5 and a running application. So far it works perfectly. It is lightweight, comfortable, accurate, and communicates with my iphone without problems. I have been a user of Polar products for many years and if there is an area they excel, this is heart rate measurements. I look forward to learning more about hear rate based training.

I love this HRS. I purchased this to go with the Polar Loop. The duo are a must have. The loop is the only device that syncs with the HRS so you will truly get a great read out of your daily activity levels.

Bought the strap for use with my samsung galaxy s5. It worked well for the first couple months, but usually required rebooting my phone to pair properly for each use. As I've been using it more, it pairs but after about 8 minutes it loses the connection consitently and displays 0 as the heart rate. Extremely frustrating.

"Does not provide heart rate to Polar heart rate monitors" <-- This one bullet in the description is critical.

This device works great with my 7th Gen iPod Nano, but I was surprised to learn that it doesn't send data to gym equipment. I guess I missed that detail in the description.

The device itself works well and does everything that's advertised, but for four dollars more you can get the H7, which also send data to gym equipment.

This is an older polar product. It uses bluetooth smart AKA bluetooth 4 or bluetooth LE. Only newer apple or android smartphones, and small handful of watches with bluetooth receivers support this product.

Although originally I thought that having my smartphone recording my heart rate was enough but looking at your smartphone screen really isn't that convenient. If you come across one of those rare and expensive watches that will pair with the device, you can't use this HRM over two devices simultaneously over bluetooth. With the H7, polar's current product, you can pair the device with your smartphone over bluetooth and it will send a separate signal to a compatible polar wrist watch or cyclocomputer. That way you can have easy access to your current heart rate.

I use this device with a 2015 Motorola E smartphone. It works with RidewithGPS and many other 3rd party fitness apps. The polar beat app does not appear to be written with bicycling in mind, so I do not use their app. The pairing with my smartphone is reliable. I have not had any disconnects. I ride with the smartphone in my front shirt pocket or a handlebar bag. The battery is a common lithium coin cell and user replaceable.

Although the strap is described as XXL in size, I wear a XL shirt and the strap is adjusted maximum length at a comfortable tension. If you wear a XXL shirt, I don't think this HRM will fit.

Overall if you can get the H6 at a deep discount and you simply want to use it with a smartphone it will work. If it is currently priced similarly with the H7, get the H7 as you can use it with gym equipment or a wrist watch should you desire that functionality in the future.

This is great in every way. I wanted something that didn't involve a watch and the app is great, the app add-ons are great. The only drawback I can think of is that it doesn't seem to work with anything except the Polar Beat app, but I prefer it so it's not a drawback to me. The online access to your exercise data is good too, especially for a data nerd like me.
