Polar Beat update available
Hey, remember Polar Beat, the training app that works with the H7 Bluetooth Smart Heart Rate sensor? We’ve got some nice enhancements for you to enjoy! Oh, and have you noticed the cool colored straps to go with the H7 heart rate sensor? If you still don’t have one, check them out from here.
At the end of last year we told you about the Polar Beat integration with two of the world’s leading fitness platforms: Google Fit and Apple HealthKit. We’ve now finalized our connectivity for our Polar Beat application and along with this release you can now connect your Polar Beat iOS to the Apple Health app. To learn more about the Apple Health App, check out some details from here.
Polar Beat users who are using the 12 hour clock had experienced some troubles synching their training data to our web service. We have found the root cause for this and we’re pleased to say this has now been fixed. If you’re experiencing trouble with your synchronization, check out some useful tips from here.
Along with Polar’s new series of Heart Rate devices, our in-house Research department has put a great effort in improving the Polar Smart coaching features. The Smart calories have been improved in the Polar Beat application, both iOS and Android, to be more accurate and to match our new line of devices.

Polar Beat for Android 1.2.4
We tied the knot between Polar Beat for Android and Google fit at end of last year. After the first release, we have taken some time to perk up the Polar Beat compatibility with the Google fit application to ensure better usability for you guys. Also some of our Android users had experienced the Polar Beat application closing when answering an incoming call. We’re happy to say, after this update you can easily have a chat or two with your buddies and Polar Beat keeps on running on the background without unexpectedly closing.
