The most important part of your workout is the moment before you start.
Polar Beat helps you plan for best results: choose a training target – for example, to burn calories or beat a time or distance record – and choose your exercise. It is suitable for any activity, indoors or out.


To get the most effective workout, you need to train at the right intensity.
Polar Beat and the Polar H6 or H7 heart rate sensor give you real-time graphical and voice guidance to keep you at the right intensity, plus tracks your distance, pace and route. Naturally you can listen to your phone’s music along the way.


See what you achieve with each workout – whether you improve endurance, increase your strength, or burn fat.
When used with an H6 or H7 heart rate sensor, Polar Beat helps you understand the impact of your workout at different intensity levels and gives the most accurate calorie tracking of any app available.


Exercise is social, even when you do it alone.
Keep your promises – or outdo others – and shout out your results on Facebook and Twitter.


The Polar H6 is a super comfortable heart rate sensor that provides live, accurate heart rate on your mobile.

The Polar H7 is a combo heart rate sensor that sends live, accurate heart rate to your mobile, and also to many Polar products as well as compatible gym equipment.




When you exercise you don’t always have to go faster, harder or for longer to get the most out of your training session.
Listen to your heart to train at the right intensity, and you’ll get the effect you are looking for.
