Cadence from the wrist

Cadence from the wrist gives you the option to get your running cadence without a separate stride sensor. Your cadence is measured with a built-in accelerometer from your wrist movements.

Cadence from the wrist is available in the following sports: Walking, Jogging, Running, Road running, Track and field running, Trail running, Treadmill running, and Ultra running.

To see your cadence during a training session, go to Polar Flow app > Sport profiles > tap the sport profile you want to edit > Change settings / Edit > and add Running cadence to the Training views of the sport profile you use when you run. You can also change the sport profile settings in the Polar Flow web service > Sport Profiles > Edit. You’ll see your average and maximum cadence after the training session in the training summary in the Polar app on your M600 and in the Polar Flow app and Polar Flow web service.

To get this feature you need to have at least Polar app version 1.4 on your M600 paired with Android phone or at least Polar app version 2.0 on your M600 paired with iPhone.

See more information about utilizing running cadence in your training from the Polar support pages.
