Great device (Polar H10), bloated, dysfunctional, and awful app
What do we want a HR app to do? We want it to tell us our heart rate. And we want it to tell that information as clearly and accurately as possible. We also want it to be simple and tell us more than just the number. This app gives you a link to a blog as a primary function, buries the heart rate information, makes it so the only way you can see your HR info is through specific activities. And “sitting at a desk, dying slowly” isn’t an activity. Yeah, sometimes I just want to see what the device has tracked if it’s on, not just if I’m specifically doing something. The Polar H10 monitor also appears to work better with the Apple Health app than this app. This app had a really hard time seeing the monitor, while the iOS Bluetooth picked it up immediately, and Apple Health app, too. A+ for Apple and the Polar H10, negative two stars for the Polar app. Unfortunately, the H10 appears to work excellently, but the app appears to miss the mark in big ways. Polar should reevaluate their developers to see if they would be heavy users of an app like this, or if they’re a bunch of soda sucking couch potatoes. Based on how heinously this app hits the mark, I suspect the ladder.
