I bought my polar a little over 3 months ago and I love it. I started my weight loss journey back in September 2013 but the second picture is when I started using the Polar for feedback. I love it. Instant gratification. It lets me know when I need to pick up the pace. Even when I need to take in down a notch. I have a long way to go, but polar is an investment in my healthier lifestyle.

Worst Polar watch

Polar has been on my wrist and in my workouts for more then 15 years. It has been so difficult to have the batteries or crystal changed...Sometimes my watch has not even come back! This time i opted to just buy the FT7, as I saw many positive reviews. After 2 months, I don't understand how this watch could get a positive review. It is hard to use because it is very very hard to read, with a smaller screen and odd number fonts that are very wide, black, and create an optical illusion of a black screen except at certain angles. On some screens the info is loaded with info but in microscopic letters and numbers. The manual it comes with is useless unless you like to read precautions. The info on the download-to-a-computer aspect is almost opaque on how to do it..barely a word on line, not a word in the manual, not a cd anywhere.I am sure it has to be somewhere, but it should not be so difficult to locate, as the computer aspect is very important to anyone who buys a HR trainer. Reading your time on the watch during a workout is not possible unless you stop completely and really concentrate on pushing the right buttons and can discern the tiny fat numbers, then go back to whatever you keep your watch on, like cal or HR. Not hardly a useful tool on a workout when you need to, say check your speed on a fast quarter. Looking up your "Data" on the watch requires a magnifying glass, and I cannot imagine how much time it would take to manually record the info. I'm not going to do it. I would like to give this watch away but feel sorry for whoever I give it to, because one would think it would work better, and that person will waste a lot of time trying to get it to be useful. Sorry Polar but I hope you go back to big screens, easy downloads and get your service departments more efficient. I will buy one more watch before giving up on Polar.

Used to Love it but now not so much

By 

from Wisconsin, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I bought this item a couple of years ago. For the first 2 years it worked like a charm, then it started malfunctioning. It wouldn't continually keep track of my heart rate. So I replaced the batteries in the watch and chest piece. Worked for a couple of days then started malfunctioning again. So I bought a new chest strap only worked for a day before it started malfunctioning again. Not really sure what to think now. Not very happy with this product now and irritated.

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I used my FT7 Everyday for 4 years. I have used and abused my PolaFT7 and it still works great, I believe it is the most accurate training device I have used and I trust it.

Used to Love it but now having problems

By 

from Texas, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I bought my FT4 about 6 months ago. It worked great for about 3 months and then started giving false readings or no reading at all. thought it was the batteries so I changed them out. Worked great for about 2 months and then started to have the same problems. I use this daily, and the last 3 days I haven't been able to use :( ... I have now purchased new batteries again and am waiting for them to come in mail. If I change them this time and it continues I will probably throw this away and buy from another Brand.

Nice Monitor Wrong Date

By 

from Jacksonville, FL, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I just received my FT7, so far I like it and will try out the heart rate monitor tonight. I did notice after setting the date it is displaying the incorrect day of the week, even after double checking I had set it correctly. Not programmed for 2016 leap year?

Disappointed

By 

from Boston, MA, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

This was my second FT7; I returned it after 2 frustrating attempted tries. I was getting the old ‘check heart rate transmitter’ message. The fabric chest strap on my first FT7 did the same thing despite following all maintenance directions to the letter. It did work well using my old T31 chest strap for about 11/2 years before the watch died after having the battery replaced and several unsuccessful attempted to resuscitate it. My older Polar heart rate monitor with the T31 chest strap worked just fine and lasted about 4 years of continuous use until it died. It owed me nothing. I did not hesitate to buy your FT7 after my first heart rate monitor died but I have experienced nothing but misery and disappointment since. Can’t you guys go back to what worked?

Disappointed

By 

from Palm Coast, FL, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I've been satisfied with my polar products in the past - the main problem here is that the instructions are so poor. I can see under "file" the total amount of time spent exercising, the average heart rate and the maximum heart rate, but what the heck does the last number mean? Nothing in the instructions explains how to use the watch - you have to figure it out by trial and error.

2nd one wasn't a charm

By 

from New Jersey, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I'm extremely active at the gym. This is my 2nd HR Monitor and it's reading the same error message as the first one. Works for a few months then the shenanigans start. Error reads "Check heart rate transmitter!" So freaking annoying! Heart conditions are hereditary and my family So I need to have a HR Monitor that works!! spend most of my workout time messing around with this. Wet strap/clean strap/changed battery/removed battery for 10 min hoping it would reset. NEVER purchasing another again . Ugh!!

waste of money

By 

from Dallas, TX, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I got this for a Christmas present and am so disappointed the packaging got thrown away. It takes forever for it to pick up my heart rate and then it says it's 40BPM when I know it's not - when it gets above 100BPM it start tracking, maybe a records it a little high...I'm not quiet sure though because it spends about 10 minutes or more on each of the functions and rarely gets to telling me my heart rate - SOOOO frustrating.  If you press the one "easy" button to try to get it to scan, it stops the whole workout.  What a waste of money.

Might be good, can't use it since I can't read it.

By 

from Seneca, SC, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

Attached should be a picture of a new Polar FT7 (red/black) with the 'cool' white-on-black display [this review is specific to that model]. If you look really hard you can make out the numbers on the face. You will not want to be looking that hard during any sort of activity. Either side of the unit are an older Polar receiver and some printed material for reference, showing that there is plenty of ambient light. (note that the old unit is also showing a low battery signal, and is still driving the display at several times the contrast).
