How do I transfer data from polarpersonaltrainer.com to the Polar Flow web service?
You can transfer the training results and fitness test results of the following Polar products: CS500, CS600X, FT7, FT40, FT60, FT80, RS300X, RS800CX, RC3 GPS, RCX3 and RCX5. It’s possible to transfer either a single training result or all the results at a time. It is also possible to transfer fitness test results.
You can log into Polar Flow with your polarpersonaltrainer.com username and password. The training and fitness test results are transferred from your polarpersonaltrainer.com account to the corresponding account in Polar Flow (the account with the same username and password). Note, that you can’t choose the account you transfer the results to.
If you edit the fitness test in polarpersonaltrainer.com after transferring it, you can transfer the changes to Polar Flow by transferring the result again from polarpersonaltrainer.com. Note that exercise results can only be transferred once: the transfer can be tried again only if the exercise transfer has not succeeded in the earlier attempts.
Please note that there are feature differences between polarpersonaltrainer.com and Polar Flow. Polar Flow has features that are not available in polarpersonaltrainer.com, but polarpersonaltrainer.com has features that aren’t available in Polar Flow as well. In addition, there are some differences within the features: e.g., the amount and limits of heart rate zones can be different in polarpersonaltrainer.com and Flow services.
The improved exercise transfer tool doesn’t show which training results have already been transferred to Flow service with the previous data transfer tool. However, if you try to transfer an exercise result that is already transferred to Flow, the tool recognizes that when the exercise transfer is started. Hence, a single exercise in polarpersonaltrainer.com service will only be shown once in Polar Flow service, there is no risk of exercises duplicating on the exercise transfer process.

There are some technical differences between polarpersonaltrainer.com and Polar Flow web service. That's why all the data you have in polarpersonaltrainer.com may not be compatible with Polar Flow. If your Fitness Data item includes such data, polarpersonaltrainer.com will let you know it's not possible to transfer it to Polar Flow.
Since there are differences between the Polar Flow web service and polarpersonaltrainer.com, all data is not shown in the Polar Flow web service. Please see the limitations below.
The following data of your training results can’t be transferred: •
- Training session name
- Maximum incline
- Fit/fat zones for Polar FT40 and FT7
- Temperature value of the laps
- Strength training movements
- Commenting laps
Heart rate zone limits
It is possible to have different amount of heart rate zones in polarpersonaltrainer.com service than in Polar Flow. Also the heart rate zone limits in polarpersonaltrainer.com may be different from the limits in Polar Flow. In case the limits need to be adjusted to suit the Polar Flow service, it is done automatically during the transfer.
Heart rate data filtering
If the connection between your heart rate sensor and training device is lost for a moment during training i.e. your heart rate is zero for a moment, polarpersonaltrainer.com filters out the 0-readings. This means that momentary 0-readings don’t affect training data and aren’t shown on the heart rate curve. The Polar Flow web service doesn’t yet have this filtering feature, so the 0-readings are shown and the heart rate curve looks different in Polar Flow compared to polarpersonaltrainer.com.
Average and max values
Average and max values are shown to different types of data, like heart rate, speed and altitude. Differences between polarpersonaltrainer.com and Polar Flow service are possible, e.g., it has been possible for users to edit the values in polarpersonaltrainer.com service, which is not supported by Polar Flow. In case the values need to be adjusted to suit the Polar Flow service, it is done automatically during the transfer.
Progress reporting is different in polarpersonaltrainer.com and Polar Flow services. The transferred data is not taken into account in the progress reports in Polar Flow service.
