What's New in Version 2.4.0
◆ POLAR OH1 COMPATIBILITY
Yippee, this release brings compatibility for our brand-new Polar OH1 optical heart rate sensor. Polar OH1 tracks heart rate with Polar’s high-quality optical HR solution and transfers data via Bluetooth. Go to polar.com/oh1 to find out more!
So far not blown away
Went for a couple runs so far with this app and the Bluetooth stride device and I'm not blown away. I had been using the Adidas app with their Bluetooth stride device but had to drop it because they are discontinuing it after December 2017. Tried to use the polar device with MapMyRun (the Adidas stride device worked) and it would not work so then used the PolarBeat app.
The PolarBeat app does not have a feature to play music in the app like MapMyRun and it does not allow you to get voice guidance down to the quarter mile (.25). The intervals are only to the tenth of a mile (.1; .2; .3; etc.) I wish I could go back to the Adidas app but for now will give Polar a few more tries.

Getting the job done
Long time Polar old school watch person. Bought H7 Bluetooth HRM strap last week and started using the app. Getting the job done and sharing data w/ Apple Health.
DON'T pair the strap w/ your phone; pair it w/ app and all will be well. They don't tell you that, but they should. Also, would be good to toggle from one exercise session to another (e.g. treadmill to weights) for gym rats like me.
Does not work
This app is for lack of a better word awful. You would think there were a better heart rate app out there. I have two H7 monitors because I divide my time between two places. When I unlink one device it has become more and more difficult lately to link the other device. When they are linked and “functioning” they frequently fluctuate violently between extreme readings of heart rates i.e. over 200 and 0bpm. The app was free and it should be because the monitors are pretty expensive. Their support is also pretty meager. I’d steer clear of this company.
