Last week, we reviewed the Polar H7 Bluetooth Low Energy heart rate monitor strap. This is a followup to that review. The review can be found here.
We have had many readers want more information on the Polar H7 Bluetooth Low Energy heart rate monitor strap. One of the biggest questions that readers have is, “Which iPhone apps work with the Polar H7?” So we set out to check all of the most popular apps that are out there. On the iPhone 4s, 5 and 5s, the apps that we test most often are:
- Endomondo Pro
- runtastic Pro
- Jog Log
So,…….the answer is………..all of the ones listed above. Garmin Fit requires additional hardware.
Here are images of all of the apps that work with the Polar H7. You can see the heart rate displayed on the screen for each app:
RunKeeper and WahooFitness
MapMyRun and MapMyRun+
runtastic and Runmeter
Jog Log and LogYourRun
iSmoothRun and HRV+
Strava and RunKeeper
So the bottom line – I was pretty amazed that I could get all of these apps to work with the Polar H7.
If you have any other apps that you want us to try, just leave us a comment, or send us an email and we’ll check ’em out.
