Sport Profiles

For more information on sport profiles, see chapter Sport Profiles.

The following Sport profiles are already there in your A300:

  • Running
  • Walking
  • Cycling
  • Strength training
  • Group exercise
  • Other indoor
  • Other outdoor
  • Swimming

In the Flow web service you can add new sport profiles and sync them to your A300, and this way create a list of all your frequent sports. See more information in Sport profiles in Flow web service.

If you have edited your sport profiles in the Flow web service before your first training session,and synced them to your A300, the sport profile list will contain the edited sport profiles.


In Settings > Sport profiles you can edit some settings for each sport profile to best suit your training needs.

To view or modify sport profile settings, go to Settings > Sport profiles and choose the profile you want to edit.

  • Training sounds: Choose Off or On.
  • Vibration feedback: Choose Off or On. When set on, A300 vibrates when, for example, you start or stop a training session or reach a training target.
  • HR settings (heart rate settings): HR view: Choose Beats per min (beats per minute) or % of max (% of your maximum heart rate). HR visible to others: Choose On or Off. If you choose On, other compatible devices (e.g. gym equipment) can detect your heart rate.

A wider range of customization options is available in the Flow web service. For more information, see Sport profiles in Flow web service.

Please note that in a number of indoor sports, group sports and team sports profiles the HR visible to other devices setting is enabled by default. This means that compatible devices using Bluetooth Smart wireless technology, e.g. gym equipment, can detect your heart rate. You can check which sport profiles have Bluetooth broadcasting enabled by default from the Polar Sport profiles list. You can enable or disable Bluetooth broadcasting from sport profile settings.
