Customer Reviews for Polar H7 Bluetooth Smart Sensor Belt
5 out of 5 Comfortable, and works well
Newitts Verified Purchase (28 Mar 2015)
I've used this both for short intense durations in the gym, and longer (12+ hour) hikes. Comfortable for both. Works well with my Active-12 GPS (via BT), the FT1 watch, and gym equipment. The only issue I've encountered is on rowing machines it can get in the way a little, but that's a tiny niggle.
5 out of 5 Excellent product and service
Newitts Verified Purchase (31 Jan 2015)
I bought this product to help me understand my exercise better. For months I had been doing exercise on a rower, and feeling tired, but I was unsure if I was working hard, or being gentle on myself. The Polar heart rate montior in combination with the excellent Polar Beat android app, and sync to the polarpersonaltrainer web tools makes a very useful suite. It allows me to monitor my excercise in real time, and later compare similar sessions to review changes in performance. I also find the training liad viewer helpful. All in all, an excellent purchase.
5 out of 5 Brilliant product
Newitts Verified Purchase (14 Jan 2015)
This is a great piece of kit, it is light-weight, waterproof and surprisingly comfortable to wear. It makes my measurements on the V800 accurate and motivates me to do more and try harder during a workout. Only downside is that it is expensive for an additional item for an already expensive watch.

5 out of 5 non sports use
Newitts Verified Purchase (7 Sep 2014)
this review was using an android galaxy note 3 model SM N9005, running android version 4.4.2 your mileage may vary on any other phone/android version!
i bought the H7 after much reading as i wanted to be able to keep a check on my heart rate, although not for sports reasons, i wanted some indicator of how exertion was affecting me and heart rate monitors are pretty reliable, having been around for so long. why did i chose the H7? firstly since i have a galaxy note 3 it's all i needed to get readings, well, including the free polar beats app. you can but don't have to sign up for an online polar account, something i liked.(not having to) it (polar beats) has many different settings some that use the sat nav others that don't, so if you don't need location info you can save your battery, since the H7 has bluetooth smart & analogue (the H6 has only the bluetooth smart)(analogue connects to most polar watches, but check to see if the watch will be compatible or not, as a few aren't) using settings in polar beats you can switch off the analogue transmission if you dont need it, again saving battery life this time in the transmitter, all exercise choices are under the bottom right pic i think it says run when you first use it (this i found confusing as i'm not familar with these things) a tap on that brings up a menu of all activity programs, the pic in future will be whatever you last used. due to work i've not had as much time to use the strap as i would have liked, but it pairs without problem to the note 3, should i decide i want to use a watch i can simply add a cheap one as an instant display while the note 3 deals with the recording, if need be in a waterproof case or bag, the watches are waterproof anyway and you dont really need "both" to record.
i've since discovered HRV or heart rate variability, there are apps to record and display this, but only the polar and one other (i recall zephyr as part of the name) transmit the the signals needed so an unexpected bonus...maybe, i dont yet know if it will be of any use to me, perhaps you will know if you need or want it.
i have had one issue with the transmitter failing, i went out of range, when i came back in range it would not pair, if i turn off bluetooth then turn it back on android will scan for devices, this is probably a good way to check if you are suffering this issue which i understand can affect most if not all monitor transmitters, it's a simple one to fix with the H7, a coin and a key will sort it. the coin to undo the battery cover the key to short the battery terminals. once i done this it was fully functional again, great not needing tools! (i've seen suggestions to use a paper clip, well i don't work in an office and besides most paper clips iv'e seen are plastic coated to prevent rust stains, not ideal for trying to short battery terminals i would think :-)
so for me it was a cheapway in, but very versatile and expandable, there will always be some compromise, but i like the versatility, i did try HRVxt a free app which could run at the same time as polar beats, not sure yet if it will be of use to me but nice to know both can be run together if thats wanted. being able to add a watch later if i want (can't be done with the H6) is another plus point, replacement chest straps are easy to find unlike some others and the battery is easy to replace, again unlike some others. incidentally both above programs ran in the background with the screen off on the note 3. lastly i understand many gyms will be using equipment that can read the analogue transmission and display it, so if unlike me you use a gym, that could be useful to you! just remember to turn analogue back on if you've turned it off :-) as for buying from newitts, great no problems and i would recommend them to anyone...well perhaps not those i dislike :-) ps.i'm male and found the chest strap comfy after a short time, i soon forgot i was wearing it.
