Can I record my heart rate without a training device or a training app?
Yes, you can, but you must start the training session with Polar Beat, the mobile app. The Polar H10 heart rate sensor has an internal memory that allows you to record one training session with it without a connected training device or a mobile training app close by.
Here’s how you do it:
- Wear the H10 sensor you have paired with Polar Beat app, either on iOS or Android. Wait until you’ll see your heart rate reading inside a blue circle when your sensor is connected with Beat.
- Select Save HR with sensor from the menu in the upper right corner of the Training view.
- Tap Start and the training session starts and you can go train without any other devices other than your heart rate sensor. There is a HR sensor icon inside a blue circle when you’ve started recording heart rate with sensor only. Note that you can only see the training start time on the Beat display.
- After your training session, you can stop the recording either by tapping the stop button on display or removing the connector from its strap if you’re not near your mobile device.
When you come back into the Bluetooth range of your mobile, Beat will automatically offer to download your finished training session from the sensor memory and sync your Flow diary. If you have removed the connector from the strap. attach the it back to its strap and wear the sensor around your chest to ensure successful connection to Beat and smooth data transter.
The H10 can have only one training session stored at a time. So you will need to upload your current session before starting a new one
