Pairing

Pair a mobile device with your OH1

If you've done the setup for your OH1 with a mobile device as described in chapter Setting up your OH1, your OH1 has already been paired with your mobile device.

If you did the setup with a computer, and would like to use your OH1 with Polar Flow app you need to perform one training session with OH1 as an independent training device before it can be paired with Flow app. See detailed instructions below.

Before pairing make sure:

  • You have a Polar account and Flow app.
  • Your mobile device has Bluetooth turned on, and airplane mode/flight mode is not turned on.
  • You have performed at least one training session with OH1 as an independent training device. For details, see Start a training session

Once all the criteria above is met:

  1. Sign in to Flow app with your Polar account.
  2. On OH1, press the button until the LED is switched on, and release. OH1 is now on.
  3. Flow app automatically prompts you to pair your OH1 with it if it is within Bluetooth range.

Your OH1 syncs with the Flow app automatically if your phone is within the Bluetooth range. When your OH1 syncs with Flow app, your training data is also synced automatically via an internet connection to the Flow web service.

Pair OH1 with a Polar wrist unit

On OH1, press the button until the LED is switched on, and release. OH1 is now on.
