Sport Profiles

Sport profiles are the sport choices you have on your watch. We have created four default sport profiles to your watch, but you can add new sport profiles in the Polar Flow app or web service and sync them to your watch, and this way create a list of all your favorite sports.

You can also define specific settings for each sport profile. 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 on your watch 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 Flow.

Using the sport profiles makes it possible for you to keep up with what you've done and to see the progress you've made in different sports. See your training history and follow your progress in the Flow web service.

You can use Polar Ignite with Polar Club during group exercise classes in fitness clubs. Select one of the indoor sport profiles for the training session and make sure that the Heart rate visible to other device feature is set on in the sport profile settings.

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.
