How do I start using my Polar device?

  2. Let the device fully charge and unplug the device from the cable.
  3. Press START to activate your Polar device display.
  4. Your Polar device is delivered with English only, but you can add other languages from the Flow web service. For more information, see Languages in My Polar Device.
  5. Your Polar device is ready to go.

To start in the Polar Flow web service:
