Polar is disappointing again. Less functionality, less usability, worse user experience. Doesn't work with polar personal trainer any longer. If I had a saying on this company, the web and app development team would not be with a job any longer. Polar never got it right with the apps and the web service. It's all too complicated. It's beyond me, why different products cannot synchronise into one platform and still allow for manual adjustment and updates. This the tech guys forgetting the user and the marketing guys forgetting the customer. I have stopped using the watches since I have polar loop and polar beat. Now polar personal trainer becomes useless to me. I don't need polar any longer. I will certainty not buy another polar product. From experience one thing is certain, you might be happy and impressed when you start your polar experience, but you will certainly be disappointed after 1 or 2 years, maybe sooner.

Hy , thank you Polar for app ,is very useful for me due a big variety of training programs and I love the HR graphics that help me to improve my fitness and also I hope you will make it even better.
If you will improve the app can you add please a option with which you can write a comment on your sessions , for example: I box ,so when I’m training I can do about three different exercises like skipping , bag work etc. So it would be great to be able to know what exercises you did on certain sessions on certain time of session ,I mean all three exercises in one session to see how do you progress.
Hope that will be useful. Thank you.

Great, but please update for XR

A great App that I use daily with my Polar heart rate monitor to track my exercise. I like the ease of selecting different activities from my most used and the variety of data offered at the end of each session.

My only request would be to update the App for the iPhone XR. Unfortunately the screen displayed during exercise isn’t properly scaled, meaning that the top text runs into the status bar and - more annoyingly - the lock button to avoid accidental screen presses is partly behind the home bar on the bottom making it difficult to hit.

Otherwise I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
