Polar app and Polar Flow

Polar app

The Polar app on your M600 turns your Wear OS by Google smartwatch into a Polar sport and activity tracker.

The app monitors your training data, such as heart rate, speed, distance and route. It also measures your activity around the clock: you can see how many steps you've taken, how much distance you've covered and how much calories you've burned. If you wear the M600 to bed, you'll also get an analysis of your sleep time and quality.

Getting the app

In order to get Polar's activity tracking and training features to work on your M600, you need to install the Polar Flow app from Google Play or App Store on your phone and activate the Polar app on your smartwatch. See here for more information on how to activate the Polar app on your M600.


Polar Flow app

In the Polar Flow mobile app, you can see an instant visual interpretation of your training and activity data. You can also change some settings and plan your training in the app.

Training data

With the Polar Flow app, you can get an instant overview of your training straight after your session on your phone. You can see weekly summaries of your training in the training diary, and share your best achievements with your friends in the Flow Feed.

Activity data

In the mobile app, you can see your daily activity in detail. See how much time you've spent on each activity intensity level, and find out how much you're missing from your daily goal and how to reach it. You can also see detailed information on your sleeping data.

Changing settings and planning your training

You can change your Polar account settings and some basic device settings in the Polar Flow app. In addition, you can add and remove sport profiles, and you can plan your training by creating quick or phased training targets.

Polar Flow web service

In the Polar Flow web service, you can plan and analyze your training in detail and learn more about your performance.

In the web service, you can also customize the Polar app on your M600 to perfectly fit your training needs by adding new sport profiles and editing their settings. For example, you can define specific training view settings for each sport and choose what data you want to see while you're training.

You can also follow and visually analyze your progress, join a network of fellow exercisers, and you can get a personalized training program for a running event. To start using the Polar Flow web service, go to flow.polar.com, and sign in with the Polar account you created when you set up your M600.

Feed, Explore and Diary

In Feed you can see what you and your friends have been up to lately. Check out the latest training sessions and activity summaries, share your best achievements, comment and like your friends' activities. In Explore you can browse the map and see other users' shared training sessions with route information. You can also relive other people’s routes and see where the highlights happened. In Diary you can see your daily activity and planned training sessions (training targets), as well as review past training results.

Progress

In Progress you can follow your development with reports. Reports are a handy way to follow your training progress over longer periods. In week, month and year reports you can choose the sport for the report. In custom period, you can choose both the period and the sport. Choose the time period and the sport for the report from the drop-down lists, and press the wheel icon to choose what data you want to view in the report graph.

Community

In the Flow Groups, Clubs and Events you can find fellow exercisers who train for the same event or in the same health club as you do. Or you can create your own group for the people you want to train with. You can share your exercises and training tips, comment other members’ training results and be part of the Polar Community.

Programs

In Programs you can create a Running Program that will help you train for a 5K, 10K, half marathon or marathon run. Polar Running Program is tailored for your event, taking your personal attributes, training background and preparation time into account.
