This is the new Polar H10 Bluetooth Heart Rate sensor. New features over the Polar H7 are
1 – Internal Memory with space for 1 x session of 65 hours
2 – Compatible with GoPro Hero 4 and 5 – add heart rate to videos
3 – Improved (but already excellent) heart rate acquisition

The Polar H10 is a comfortable Bluetooth heart rate sensor worn around the chest. I have no problem using a chest strap. The Polar H10’s strap is very soft and comfortable. If you want the very best accuracy it really has to be a chest strap. The LED optical wrist based heart rate sensors found on the back of many sports watches (eg. Forerunner 35, Polar M430, Fitbit Ionic, Fitbit Blaze etc) all very good and highly convenient. HOWEVER, they will not give the same 99.999% accuracy you get with the Polar H10. If you partake in HiiT or other high intensity interval style training then you will benefit from a chest strap sensor.

CardioCritic have performed many Heart Rate Accuracy tests. You will find more here – https://www.cardiocritic.com/chest-strap-v-off-wrist/

  1. Does H10 work with Gopro Hero 6? Thanks

  2. Where is the live heart rate tracking?

  3. If you go a run without taking the mobile phone will the h10 sensor track the gprs and save the route as it would when running with h7 and mobile phone ??

  4. Hi. Can you please advise me. The H7 Polar Bluetooth has SMART on its casing where the H10 does not. I would use the heart monitor on a concept 2 rowing machine but it has to have the smart technology. Would the H10 still be ok. Not sure what the Smart on the H7 actually means. Thank you

  5. I bought one Two days ago, sometimes turns off even if I am wearing the belt, in settings says that it is not pair. What could be? I am going to try to use for a all day.

  6. I’m using Polar products for a couple of years now. Per their new license agreement that unless you agree will render the gear you own useless…. I no longer recommend their products. Support was only … so-so anyway.

  7. can i use my phone as a dashboard while i am ridding my bicycle?

  8. Does the H10 pair with the Gopro Hero 6? Thanks

  9. What?
    From what I see you do not know wahoo.

  10. Hi, I’m wondering if you could recommend a affordable, quality Bluetooth watch that this would be compatible with? I’m currently using the polar beat app but I hate having to constantly open the app on my phone to check my HR. I’d rather check it with the flick of my wrist while working out. I’d rather get something less expensive than a polar watch as I already have a fitness tracker (Fitbit charge 2). Thanks!

  11. How do you know when is battery low?

  12. Is it record continues heart rate???

  13. It's accurate with hairy chest?

  14. Can someone help me around with this: Polar H10 vs Wahoo Tickr X, which one is better? (weightlifting etc.)

  15. Mine does not turn on.. how to turn on😊

  16. Does it works with Sports Tracker App? Thanks : )

  17. es compatible con iphone ?y que reloj deberia comprarme?

  18. I have a v800 polar watch that didn't have a HRM supplied. I'm debating whether to get the H10 or the Wahoo ticker X. Any preference??

  19. Would it allow me to set up an audible alert when my heart rate is above or below a certain point?

  20. Hello, please if somebody can reply to my question. I wear shirt size L, I see that size of the strap is maximum 93cm, when I measure my chest it is 94cm. So I'm bit confused how the size of the strap is rated M-XXL and I wear L and the size doesn't match ?

  21. H10 is actually slight improvement over H7. I didn't manage to make the Gopro pairing work…

  22. My H7 did not ever work with my A300. Polar made me buy the T31coded for this swimming functionality

  23. Have you tried it in the water to track real time heart rate with a V800 or A300?

  24. Turns out I don’t have the latest firmware. I have 4.1.1 and the latest is 4.4 according to customer service rep. She said she would email me the link. I have to use my laptop. I can not just delete the app and get the latest version. Shaking my head. Customer service has been very nice. I have spoken to them four times.

  25. Having trouble doing the VO2 max test because I don’t 🏃. I do all my cardio on concept2 rower or ski erg. Seems GPS is involved some how. Good news the customer service is great to talk to.

  26. Did you review the Jabra sport pulse special edition?

  27. Does the H10 sync with the Polar Team (indoor) App ? Thx for the review!

  28. Any ideas for a good app or heart monitor watch to use to get notifications when you reach a set heart rate? Polar beat does not provide notifications with the H10 and some of the Polar watches such as A370 have mixed reviews. Any ideas please?

  29. Hi. Do you know if its compatible with garmim edge 520?

  30. I have one question could you check your hr in real time, i mean, if you want to check it at a single moment, your current heart rate, could you do it with this monitor?

  31. Thanks, that was useful. I have an old (perfectly working) Polar FT4F Women's Heart rate monitor. Is this device compatible with Polar H10 sensor?
    Thanks in advance

  32. is it Compatible with Polar A300 ??

  33. can i only use the h10 for knowing how much calorie i burn without wach?

  34. How accurate for the heart rate sensor in reporting calorie burn in a workout? I am really surprised that it shows I burned 550 calories in a 35 mins workout on a Arc Trainer.

  35. Is it worth the upgrade from h7? Thanks

  36. does it directly sync with Polar Loop? without mobile to see the live heart rate??

  37. can I be able to swim with my M400 and the H10?

  38. This gadget works with Strava app? congratulations for your review

  39. How does the sensor turn off?

  40. Thanks. What is the most basic watch (polar, I guess) that can be paired with this for real-time viewing whilst swimming?

  41. Polar says it's a 2025 battery, not a 2032…

  42. Hello, does the box say if it supports Androids? I see the previous models only supports iOS devices.
