Sport profiles

Sport profiles are the sport choices you have in the Polar app on your M600.

There are seven default sport profiles in the Polar app on your M600:

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

You can add and remove sport profiles in the Polar Flow mobile app or in the Polar Flow web service. You can also define specific settings for each profile service. For example, you can create tailored training views for each sport you do and choose what data you want to see when you train: just your heart rate or just speed and distance—whatever suits you and your training needs and requirements best.

You can have a maximum of 20 sport profiles in the Polar app on your M600 at a time. The number of sport profiles in Polar Flow mobile app and Polar Flow web service is not limited.

For more information, see Sport Profiles in Polar Flow Web Service or Sport Profiles in Polar Flow app on the Polar support pages.

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.
