Syncing

To be able to sync data between the Polar app on your M600, the Polar Flow mobile app and the Polar Flow web service, you need to have a Polar account. You already created an account if you finished setting up your M600.


Automatic syncing of training data

The Polar app on your M600 syncs your training and activity data with the Polar Flow app automatically after you've completed a training session. For the automatic sync to work, you need to be signed in to the mobile app with your Polar account, and your phone and M600 need to be connected.
Android phone users: Your phone and M600 can be connected either via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
iPhone users: Your phone and M600 need to be connected via Bluetooth.

The Polar app also syncs your activity data with the mobile app if you get an inactivity alert or reach your daily activity goal.

When your activity and training data are updated to the mobile app, the data is automatically also synced with the Polar Flow web service via an internet connection.

iPhone users note! If you don't train using the Polar app and want to see your activity data in the mobile app, you need to use the manual sync.


Syncing changed settings

You can change your Polar account settings, add or remove sport profiles, create training targets and edit the sport profile settings in both the Polar Flow web service and the Polar Flow mobile app.

Any changes you make in the mobile app, with your phone connected to the Internet, will sync between the mobile app and the web service automatically. If you make the changes in the Polar Flow web service, they will be synced to your mobile app next time you open the app on your phone.
