Introduction

Congratulations on your new Polar OH1!

Polar OH1 is a compact optical heart rate sensor that measures heart rate from your arm or temple. It's versatile and offers a great option to heart rate chest straps and wrist-based heart rate devices. With Polar OH1 you can broadcast your real-time heart rate to your sports watch, smart watch or Polar Beat or other fitness app via Bluetooth, and simultaneously to ANT+ devices. Polar OH1 has an inbuilt memory so you can start your workout with OH1 alone and transfer the training data to your phone afterwards. It comes with a comfortable machine-washable armband and a swimming goggle strap clip (in Polar OH1 + product package).

It can also be used with Polar Club, Polar GoFit and Polar Team app.
