Smart Notifications (Android)

​The smart notifications feature allows you to get alerts about incoming calls, messages and notifications from apps onto your Polar device. You’ll get the same notifications on your Polar device that you get on your phone screen. Please note that you can’t receive any notifications during training sessions.

  • Make sure you have Android version 5.0 or newer on your phone.
  • Make sure you have the latest firmware on your Polar device.
  • To use the Smart Notifications feature you need to have the Polar Flow mobile app for Android, and your Polar device needs to be paired with the app. For the Smart Notifications feature to work, Polar Flow app must be running on your phone.
  • Please note that when the Smart Notifications feature is on, the battery of your Polar device and phone will run out faster because Bluetooth is continuously on.

If notifications appear only when the phone is unlocked and/or stop appearing on your watch after a while, please disable all power saving and optimizing features on your phone. If the Polar Flow app is terminated in the background, this might cause the notifications to stop appearing on your watch. For instructions on disabling power saving features see How to disable power saving and optimizing features for the Polar Flow and Polar Beat Android apps

  5. Sync your Polar device with the mobile app by pressing and holding the BACK button of your Polar device.

Whenever you change the notification settings on the Polar Flow mobile app, remember to sync your Polar device with the mobile app.

Phone

To be able to receive notifications from your phone on your Polar device, you first need to enable notifications on the mobile applications from which you want to receive them. You can do this either via the mobile application’s settings or via your Android phone’s App notifications settings. See the user manual of your phone for further information on App notifications settings.

Then Polar Flow app has to have permission to read the notifications from your phone. You have to give Polar Flow app access to your phone notifications (i.e. enable notifications in the Polar Flow app). Polar Flow app guides you to give access when needed.

When getting an alert, your Polar device will discreetly notify you by vibrating (M430, M200) or with a sound (M400). A calendar event or message alert once, while incoming calls alert until you press the BACK button on your Polar device, answer the phone, or after alerting for 30 seconds.

The caller’s name is shown on the display if you have the caller on your mobile phonebook and the name only includes basic Latin characters and special characters of the following languages: French, Finnish, Swedish, German, Norwegian or Spanish.

Note: In some cases when receiving a call, the answer option is missing from the display. This is because some Android phones do not have a notification action for answering a call. Please be aware that in cases like this you may not be notified about an incoming call at all.

Dismiss Notifications

Notifications can be dismissed manually or by timeout. Manually dismissing the notification also dismisses it from your phone screen, but timeout just removes it from your Polar device, and it will still be visible on your phone.

To dismiss notifications from the display:

  • Manually: Press the BACK button
  • Timeout: The notification will disappear after 30 seconds if you do not dismiss it manually

Do Not Disturb (M430, M400)

If you want to disable notifications and call alerts for a certain period of time, set do not disturb on. When it is on, you will not receive any notifications or call alerts during the time period you have set.

Do not disturb is set on by default, and the time period is 10 pm – 7 am. You can change the time period from the General Settings on your Polar device.

When do not disturb is on, you’ll see an icon (a crescent moon) in the upper left corner of the display to indicate that you cannot receive notifications.

Do Not Disturb (M200)

If you want to disable notification alerts for certain hours of the day, set Do not disturb on in the Polar Flow mobile app. When it's on, you won't receive any notification alerts during the time period you've set.

  1. Open the Polar Flow app.
  2. Open the menu from the top left corner and choose Devices.
  3. Under Phone notifications you can set Do not disturb on or off, and set the start and end time for Do not disturb.

  • Your mobile device is within Bluetooth range from your watch.
  • You haven't blocked notifications from certain apps in Block apps in Flow app.
  • Syncing between the Polar Flow app and your watch works as expected.

    • If Polar Flow is disabled, enable it and see if notifications work.
