How to pair a heart rate sensor with Polar Beat app Android
Polar Beat is compatible with Polar Bluetooth heart rate sensors: H9, H10 and OH1.
The heart rate sensor needs to be paired directly in the Polar Beat app.
Please make sure you have GPS enabled on the phone and location permission is allowed for Polar Beat. Due to Google's permission requirements for Bluetooth syncing, you must turn on location services to use your Polar sensor with the Beat app. Android 6.0 and later requires applications to request permission before the app can use system data and features. The Location permission is required not only to track GPS routes but also to scan for Bluetooth devices.
If you have paired the heart rate sensor in the mobile device settings, Beat app is unable to use it. Remove the sensor pairing from the device settings and pair the sensor directly in the Beat app.
