What sensors and accessories is my Polar device compatible with?

Compatible heart rate sensors

All Polar heart rate sensors can be worn in water. Only sensors with GymLink transmission detect heart rate while swimming. Only GymLink compatible wrist units (marked with  in the table below) show heart rate in water, if other requirements are met.

z This training computer uses GymLink transmission. You can use a non-coded GymLink transmission with this training computer, too, but then Polar OwnCode® feature is not supported. If the training computer does not find the GymLink heart rate signal at the beginning of the exercise (in approx. 30 seconds), the non-coded GymLink heart rate signal is used instead.

* The Bluetooth Smart transmission which Verity Sense, OH1, H10, H9, H7 and H6 heart rate sensors use, is compatible with Bluetooth Smart and Bluetooth Smart Ready devices and applications that fully supports standardized Bluetooth Smart heart rate functionality.

You can use a GymLink compatible Polar Bluetooth Smart sports watch (A300 or V800) together with a GymLink heart rate sensor to measure heart rate in water sports. If a GymLink heart rate sensor is used with other than the water sport profiles, the heart rate value is not shown in pre-training mode and it is shown in grey during training recording. If you are wearing H7 or H10 in water, the Bluetooth Smart signal is ignored by A300/V800.
