What's New in Version 2.2.2
With this release, we fixed minor bugs to improve the quality of the Beat app.
Loving it, better workouts!
I have used Polars for years. I held off getting an Apple Watch because I doubted it could work as well as my Polar. I finally did both, the Apple Watch with the H7 and Polar Beat. I love seeing the workouts in real time on the app. As a visual person, seeing my total effort during the workout is huge. Another commenter said the graphics need help. From a style point of view, I agree, but the UI is clear and makes sense.
I want to add two features for the developers with list:
1. Recovery tracker - once the workout stops, the recovery tracker records until the initial workout heart rate is resumed and held for a while.
Alternately, the app could track different workout modes within one workout: warm up, workout, cool down and recovery. In this scenario one could toggle various modes during a workout.
2. Custom interval timers - in this mode predetermined intervals and reps could be set to trigger alarms during the workout to change effort modes etc...
Aside from this, I left a star off because pairing the devices should not be so difficult. After I finally paired it, it always pairs now. Sadly I am not clear what I did to make it work. Clear instructions would be welcome too.
Great app needs graphic color help
I've been a Polar customer for many years. They know fitness very well. It's just the little things that keep them from being so much better. Seriously. How do you let a gps company over take you in fitness? I use a Polar H7 strap to connect to this app. Paid and upgraded to add all of the features. The running training programs are nice. Wish they would add interval training. Also utilize the GPS of the Apple Watch Series 2. Also not require connection to the iPhone just to use the Watch app for tracking my other workouts. Another downside to the Beat app is the graphics. Black background makes it difficult to see. Especially when they put colors like dark blue text on black.
Heart rate all over the place
Not every time but often enough the heart rate is all over the place. 0-180 in a second and anywhere in between. The app is only ok as it is. The watches have more functionality which is disappointing since your phone has so much more memory, processing power and available display area.
Update: I hate this app. The heart rate is EXTREMELY unreliable. I maintain the strap and sensor correctly. I've washed the strap as instructed - nothing more, nothing less. The sensor has a new battery. The signal will not only completely drop out but the HR spikes as well. Do not buy the HR monitor nor the app. On to Garmin.
UPDATE 2: The H7 strap is actually compatible with the Wahoo app and I still get bad, inaccurate heart rates. So bottom line, the only compatible strap for Beat is unusable so the app is unusable.
