Introduction

Congratulations on your new Polar Verity Sense!

Polar Verity Sense is a versatile high-quality optical heart rate sensor that measures heart rate from your arm or temple. It's a great alternative to heart rate chest straps and wrist-based devices. You can use it with the armband, swimming goggle strap clip or just place it anywhere snug and firm against your skin. Polar Verity Sense allows maximum freedom of movement and works in countless different sports. As a highlight, Polar Verity Sense records heart rate, distance and pace when you swim in the pool.

You can record your workouts in the sensor's internal memory and transfer workout data to your phone afterwards or you can connect it to a compatible device and follow your heart rate in real time during your workout.

Polar Verity Sense transfers data via Bluetooth® and ANT+. You can use the sensor with dozens of leading fitness apps including Polar Flow app, as well as with Bluetooth and ANT+ compatible training devices. You can stream your heart rate simultaneously to two different receiving Bluetooth devices and as many ANT+ devices as you wish.

Polar Verity Sense comes with a comfortable machine-washable armband, swimming goggle strap clip, USB charging adapter and storage pouch.
