If you are seriously interested in working out using your heart rate, and you use the health app, then this is an elegant solution. It seems that some products communicate with the health app, and some don't. Finally, some do it erratically and inconsistently. Bluetooth seems the same way. This product consistently communicates with the health app It does require a Bluetooth monitor. I use the H7. In that regard, I feel it is superior to Polar's own product. (I don't have an Apple Watch) unlike some reviewers, I have had no problems with the Bluetooth synchronization I have used POLAR equipment since it came out more than 30 years ago. The problem is that with the standard POLAR Monitors is getting The data into the health app. Since I have become addicted to the health app as the way to monitor the various fitness parameters I track, POLAR's original products become less useful, and more contemporaneous cardiovascular training products like this one become much more important. This is not to demean the original Polar productline, which is still great. It is simply to point out that with more and more people going to the health app as a way to track all of their fitness parameters in one place, this product assumes a very considerable amount of importance There was an issue importing other workouts from the health app. I have never encountered such quick, intensive support. The problem is now gone,within a few days. The developer is right on top of things Try it: you won't be disappointed and you will see how easy it is to get your cardiovascular data into the health app In short, if you use your heart rate and zones as a way to train, and are serious about that, and you use the Health app, then this is the way to go And, finally, no, I don't have any relationship to the developer: I'm just an old guy fitness enthusiast, and, by the way, an orthopedic surgeon.
