Highlights of this 24/7 Continuous Heart Rate


  • Continuous wrist-based heart rate automatically measures heart rate (at a minimum frequency of every five minutes) during rest and physical activity to deliver a complete picture of the day’s activity.
  • Recognises when users move at higher levels of activity (e.g. walking, running) and will automatically measure heart rate at a higher resolution.
  • Detects periods of inactivity and captures resting heart rate.
  • Combines this daily data to provide immediate guidance towards reaching activity goals, which users may reach faster due to the new level of precision of Polar’s latest fusion of heart rate and activity algorithm.
  • Detailed daily overview and heart rate variation is available in real-time in the Polar Flow App, which may show changes in heart rate linked not just to physical activity, but also emotion and stress.
  • With Polar Flow, users can examine their heart rate in motion and at rest, access Polar’s Smart Coaching features for additional guidance and gain feedback on specific activities with insights from Activity Benefit, Smart Calories and Training Benefit.
