Polar Heart Rate Monitors

We have sold all the models of Polar Heart Rate Monitor since 1999. Polar were one of the first companies to embrace heart rate monitoring way back in 1976. In this time they have continued to create innovative products that have helped millions of people achieve their fitness goals at all levels. Still considered by many as the company who started the ball rolling selling their first heart rate monitor in 1977. I bought my first Polar HRM in 1999 and it was a Polar Beat .. it STILL WORKS.

Reviewed and Tested by HeartRateMonitor.co.uk

Having been involved with Polar products since 1999 we have used, sold, tested and reviewed over 50 different models, from the original Polar Beat to the top of the range Polar v800. Testing these great products has always been a pleasure as they always perform as we expect them to, often exceeding our expectations. The whole Polar range comes highly recommended by the whole team at HeartRateMonitor.co.uk and we expect them to be leading the way in HRM technology for years to come.

What's the best Polar Heart Rate Monitor?

That depends on who you are and what you want to do with it. For the largest proportion of the population with a desire to get fit, stay healthy, improve activity levels then we would recommend the Polar M400 as their best all rounder. With built-in GPS, activity tracker, smartphone connectivity, step counter, training benefit and more.. please read our Polar M400 review here for more details. If you are in to triathlon and you regularly partake in training activity that involves swim, bike, run in the SAME session then the Polar V800 is for you. Polar's first TRUE multisport heart rate monitor with integrated GPS, the V800 is a high quality performance tracking wrist computer with smartphone connectivity for data upload and notification alerts.

Why no Strapless HRM models?

Good question. Polar could no doubt purchase the license to use MioGlobal's strapless heart sensing technology, or even develop their own. The downside to the continuous monitoring directly off the wrist is the inability to extract RR interval data (data found in an ECG trace). One of Polar's key selling points is their Orthostatic Testing and Training Load indication. Taking what is basically PULSE from the wrist does NOT give the wrist monitor enough data to see if the user is OVER/UNDER training.... it just gives pulse rate. Polar's HRM belt extracts a whole load of data from the ECG signal. This data is utilised by  the watch to give a lot more than simple heart rate. I have no doubt Polar will VERY SOON release an HRM which takes pulse straight from the wrist, but I don't expect to see it in their top of the range TECHNICAL products.... although I could be wrong...
