Polar Beat compatibility and requirements

Polar Beat is compatible with

Polar devices work with most modern smartphones. Here are the minimum requirements:

  • iOS mobile devices with iOS 11 and later
  • Android mobile devices with Bluetooth 4.0 capability and Android 5 or later (check full phone specification from your phone manufacturer)

There is plenty of variation between how different Android devices handle the technologies used in our products and services, such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and different standards and protocols. Because of this, compatibility varies between phone manufacturers, and unfortunately Polar cannot guarantee that all features can be used with all devices.

iPad supports Polar Beat as an iPhone app.

To see your heart rate data in the Polar Beat app, you need to use it with Polar H6 or H7, H10 or OH1 Bluetooth heart rate sensor. Polar Bluetooth sensors may not be available in all countries due to the local legislation.

What about Polar Beat on Windows phones

Our priority is to enhance Polar experience on the iOS and Android platforms and we do not have plans to introduce Windows mobile support.
