Polar's compatibility with Google Fit and Apple HealthKit
We're currently in the process of integrating with two of the world's leading fitness platforms: Google Fit and Apple HealthKit.
Fitness platforms collect fitness data from various sources, and you can use them to share your data with your favorite apps.
Starting today, Polar Beat training and exercising app can connect with Google Fit. Next week Polar’s Flow app will follow by
connecting with Apple HealthKit, and therefore Apple’s Health app. Polar will complete its connectivity with these two platforms
early next year.
This compatibility will enable training and activity data transfer from devices such as Polar V800, Polar M400 and Polar Loop into
other apps via Apple Health. In the beginning the transferable data from Polar Beat app for Android to Google Fit includes sport ID,
time, duration, distance, calories and HR samples from trainings. The Polar Flow app for iOS export to Apple HealthKit will
additionally include steps from daily activity.

We hope you enjoy this new and exciting way of using your health and fitness information!
