The science behind Polar technology and smart coaching.
Our white papers offer you a thorough description of the scientific background of our technologies and the proprietary features in Polar products. They were written to give you a deeper understanding of how our products and solutions work. Each white paper comes with a short abstract and a full-length downloadable PDF.
Polar Elixir™ OHR and SpO2
Polar Elixir white paper is about Polar optical heart rate (OHR) and blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) measurements. For both measurements the technical as well as physiological background for development are presented. White paper also includes methods and results on validation studies made against accepted reference methods. User benefits of SpO2 rewiev the meaning of results and gives indications on how to to use and interpret the measurement values.
Polar Wrist-ECG white paper is documentation on physiological as well as technical background on electrogardiogram (ECG) measurement and tells about Polar development for wrist-ECG test. Measurement principle and technical solution are presented. White paper also includes methods and results on ECG signal quality and R-R-interval accuracy studies made against Holter monitoring. Discussion part of white paper review the performance of Polar wrist-ECG test and meaning of results.
Body temperature is a key indicator of health because changes in body temperature often signal disturbances in body homeostasis. This white paper provides an overview of body temperature regulation and highlights the employment of Polar technology for measuring skin temperature from wrist. It also describes how nightly skin temperature is visualized on Polar devices.
Polar Work-rest guide feature is based on heart rate measurement during training. The algorithm behind automatically detects the highest heart rate reached during the execution of an exercise set, and performs subsequent calculations to determine a suitable recovery heart rate. Using the Work-rest guide feature enhances both the overall effectiveness and the average cardiovascular work rate of a training session.
Polar Sleepwise is guiding to daily alertness. This white paper describes the Polar SleepWise™️ feature that visualizes how sleep contributes to daytime alertness and helps in managing alertness with better sleep. The paper reviews physiological sleep regulatory processes, sleep debt, sleep-wake -rhythm and their connections to daytime alertness. Biomathematical modelling for alertness as well as the technology, algorithm, and functionalities of the Polar SleepWise™️ are also presented.
Physical activity has many benefits to health and wellbeing.Tracking physical activity is an effective way to find out how active one really is throughout the day. Without tracking, people tend to overestimate time spent in vigorous intensities and underestimate sitting and light intensity activities.
Running Index is a simple and convenient way to determine running performance. Running Index takes speed and heart rate information and squeezes it into one validated and comprehensible number that reflects running performance. It is a powerful tool to follow changes in endurance fitness and to predict future performance.
Energy Sources & FuelWise
This white paper on Polar Energy sources and FuelWise explains the scientific physiological background of key energy sources that the body uses during exercise. These sources are carbohydrates, fats and protein. Additionally, the optimal fueling guidance given by FuelWise is reviewed.
Cycling Performance Test
The Cycling performance test white paper describes a test that allows a user to determine cycling performance. This test uses functional threshold power (FTP) as a main parameter and requires power sensors connected to a Polar product.
Running Performance Test
Endurance running is a fundamental human skill that everyone can train regardless of age, gender or fitness level. To obtain individual training guidance, as opposed to general training guidance that is the same for everybody, some performance parameters should be known.
Polar Walking Test is a simple and safe way of estimating aerobic fitness, follow its development, and compare it to people of the same age and gender. The feature is built into Polar wrist units and is based on a widely used and recognized 2-kilometer walk test. By factoring in distance, heart rate, and personal demographics such as age, gender, height, and weight, Polar Walking Test predicts aerobic power (VO2max). To perform the test successfully, the user must walk continuously as “fast as possible” on a level surface for 15 minutes.
Leg Recovery Test
Athletes use vertical jumps to assess their explosive leg power. Other benefits of the jump test are automatic assessment of the recovery status of the neuromuscular functioning of the lower body, as well as training readiness guidance.
Serene™ Breathing Exercise
Occasional mental stress is a part of training, competitions, and everyday life. Relaxation strategies involving deep breathing, typically close to the rate of six breaths per minute, can be used to increase concentration, promote relaxation, and reduce stress.
Training Load Pro
Polar Training Load Pro consists of Cardio load, Muscle load and Perceived load. These all are based on training measurements or subjective evaluation given by user. All loads are interpreted in numerical values as well as verbally. This white paper describes the scientific background of Polar Training Load Pro, its functions, and validity.
Sleep Plus Stages
Sleep is vital to overall health and well-being, playing an essential role in many physical and mental functions. In athletes, inadequate sleep may slow down recovery and training adaptation, impair performance and increase the risk of injury and illness.
Running Power is a Smart Coaching tool that allows runners to keep track of the external load of their running. It is useful tool for interval and slope training.
Fitness has an important role in sports and exercise training. Exercise training targets to maintain or improve fitness. Most of the training prescription parameters (frequency, duration, intensity) depend on the fitness level of a person.
This white paper gives the physiological and technical background of calorie estimation in wrist-worn wearables. It also gives the Polar approach to energy expenditure estimation, called Polar Smart Calories, and the scientific validity of the Polar Smart Calories feature.
Global Navigation Satellite System
In order to meet demands for speed and location data, Polar has integrated GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) into its wearable devices since 2009. Currently, location data can be determined with nearly every Polar sport and fitness device.
Training at different intensities has different benefits. Low intensity training increases fat oxidation and has several health benefits. However, research has shown that there can be large individual variation in the ability to oxidize fat during exercise and thus more individual, tailor-made determination methods are needed.
Night-time recovery from training and stress is a central element of performance development, optimal daytime functioning, wellbeing, and health. Nightly Recharge white paper describes the principles behind the feature as well as benefits to user. Scientific evidence and its validity are also presented
H10 HR Sensor System
The Polar H10 Sensor System represents the latest Polar heart rate technology. Polar system measures each heart beat which is associated with a corresponding phase and characteristics on the ECG.
An orthostatic test is a simple way to evaluate the body’s recovery status. Originally developed for medical use, the test has been used in sports science for over 20 years.
Polar Recovery Pro measures how user tolerates training. It also considers other non-sports related stress factors such as poor sleep or work pressure. Recovery Pro gives recovery feedback and training advice. This white paper describes the scientific background of Polar Recovery Pro, its functions, and validity.
