Swimming

Polar M600 is water resistant to 10 meters, and can be worn during swimming.

When you're recording a swimming session with the Polar app, water may prevent the wrist-based heart rate measurement from working optimally. But the Polar app will still collect your activity data from your wrist movements when swimming, and you can also get swimming metrics from your swimming sessions.

Note that you can't use a Polar heart rate sensor with a chest strap with the M600 when swimming because Bluetooth doesn't work in water.
