Polar Heart Rate Monitor Data Discussion

posted by DL Byron on November 03, 2005

Veen posts on Polar Heart Rate monitors and a discussion ensues about data and frustration for Apple users. Polar makes a great product and great software for PCs, but not for Apple users and the data isn’t in an exportable format for use in other applications.

I agree with Veen and Polar’s view, as with any software manufacturer that’s not developing cross-platform, is short-sighted. With that data opened up, across platforms, I could’ve uploaded my .hrm files to my post about riding up to 10K feet. Continuing that thought, Polar could offer a community site to upload files, plot, and share them. Polar going Web 2.0 would be very useful to cycling geeks and to Polar.
