    Love the app. I have it for... 3 years now? I paid for the full features, because it was like $10 for life, or something like that?? I don't remember, but I've used this app on multiple devices over the 3 years, and with the h6 I originally purchased. I love it - I love the vocal coaching in runs, I love the graphical information afterwards, I like the data... I like all of it. It helps motivate this fatty to stick with it. I can't say it's a silver bullet, but after I've fallen off for a bit I can always come back to it. I highly recommend this product. Full Review

    Very good app. Only thing I would like is after a session is made and saved to be able to edit the distance run. Sometimes I save the session and forget to put the distance I made in the gym and cannot edit it later on. Appart from that, awesome! Also the fitness test is inaccurate and not worth the in app purchase. I mean I'm only training for 6 months, 2 times a week and got 58 score, near elite, not true :) Full Review

    I like this app but it lacks customizable training programs. This could be a 5-Star app if Polar integrates the customizable targets from it's Flow app (Phased and Quick Targets) into the Beat app's "Benefit Target" feature. This together with existing voice guidance would make this app awesome. Full Review

    It will not connect to my cell phone. It just keeps searching and nothing happens. After spending more time trying to sync the sensor to the phone app. I realized it was an error on my part, I didn't have the sensor on my body properly. Now that I have fixed that problem, it works just fine! Full Review

    I use this app to record all my fitness intensity levels with the polar H7 and it works great. My only suggestion would be to enter a specific HR target such as 135 to 140 BPM. I find their ranges not intuitive but I probably just need to play with them more. Full Review

    On Android Oreo, it would be good to see the time and distance on the locked screen. So we don't have to unlock the phone during the running. It's always difficult if the hand wet. Thank you. Full Review

    Constant problems with blue tooth connectivity. Does not upload to web connection consistently. Not good for people looking to record their workouts simply and be done. Too much finagaling and no realtime support that I can figure out. Full Review

    It's a nice app that could have more features. Too bad that the android version doesn't support my polar bluetooth stride sensor. The funny thing is that wahoo fitness supports polar stride sensor. Full Review

    Great app that is works well with the Polar H10 that I use for running, Les Mills classes and functional training ... But there is room to improve. Would love to see the following: - Ability to favourite sport profiles that are regularly used to save searching or scrolling through the whole list. - Alternative options for the voice guidance type or increase the volume drop of music when voice guidance is given (find it hard to hear over music due to the pitch). - Ability to select different metrics to voice guidance, e.g. speed. - Add interval view to workout outcome showing average HR, Pace/Speed and altitude by duration/distance. - Delayed start so that i have time to put my phone away in a bag or SpiBelt. - A built Tabata timer would be awesome (could be a paid add-on) - Lastly, a Android Ware partner app would be great to allow display of key metrics (selectable) and allow start and stop of activity - I always run with a phone for music, tracking my workout via polar beat/H10 and for security but the M600 is too large for my wrists.

    Good for tracking fitness. 5 stars cause I didn't expect it to do much more than track heart rate and it does a lot more. Not a perfect app but no fitness app is. Full Review

    Gerard Nellis Published date: January 16, 2018

    So much potential, but it just falls short :-( Easy to use, good-looking app that performs its limited functionality. Would easily be a 5-star app if it had any user customisable options, specifically: - distance/time options in benefit target mode - user specified HR zone with audio prompts (not just the "You are burning fat/improving fitness" of the current EnergyPointer add-on) Pretty good for a free APP, but a bit of a let down in the paid-for content, especially given Polars pedigree in the industry. PLEASE IMPROVE POLAR! THIS IS SO CLOSE TO BEING EXCELLENT! Full Review

    It's just fine, it can be perfect if it offer us the possibility to save data (heart rate, speed, distance...etc) in a csv file in order to make treatment later on pc, also try to implement heart rate zone ( i.e min, moderate, max) Plz do this for us. Thanx for your efforts. Ps: plz i need this (csv sauvegarde). Full Review

    The 'fit test' function doesn't work with all Polar bluetooth heart monitors; I have a H10 and although the app can read the heart rate data it won't allow a fit test with this particular model. Full Review

    I really love this app. It has some small glitches as to why I won't give it 5 stars. It has a very accurate heart rate monitor that works well with gym links compatible cardio equipment. The GPS is very accurate and probably one of the best on the market. The only negative thing would be having the in app purchases when the watch and heart rate monitor are already expensive. I guess I am biased towards polar because I have used there products for over 15 years. Full Review
