…and ACTION!

The remote control functionality for GoPro HERO4 Silver and Black is now available. The GoPro HERO4 remote camera controls on Polar V800 allow you to:

  • Capture pictures
  • Start and stop video recording
  • Tag HiLights in video mode by tapping the screen

Here are the instructions on how to connect your Polar V800 and GoPro HERO4 Silver or Black (Session is not supported). More detailed instructions in the Polar support pages for GoPro.

What’s happening next?

In this blog post about the GoPro connectivity we told you what is coming in the near future. Here’s the planned timeline for the upcoming updates and Polar H10 connectivity:

  • Support for the GoPro HERO4 remote control on Polar V800. AVAILABLE NOW.
  • Polar H10 functionality for both GoPro HERO4 and HERO5 devices will be available during the first quarter of 2017.

Have fun!

(Edit January 30, 2018: GoPro has discontinued their Developer Program, which provided SDKs to Polar to build connectivity to GoPro cameras. As a result, this will limit our ability to provide continuous support for connectivity to future GoPro cameras.)
