Hi there, welcome to Polar Updates. It’s nice to see you here! This is the place where you’ll hear all the latest news about releases, new features and enhancements we have come up with at Polar. We also want to share with you what we have on deck for future updates. Whenever we’ve got something to tell you we’ll send you a notification at Flow; this way you’ll never miss a post.
Users in certain areas had reported that their Polar Beat on their iOS devices was syncing their training sessions with GPS data as incomplete to Flow. This release, version 2.0.2 for iOS, focuses on fixing this unfortunate issue.
Some users had reported that they’ve lost their sport profiles from their Polar device after syncing it with the Polar Flow app (only iOS). After some investigation we managed to find the nasty bug that caused the sport profiles to disappear. The good news are that we have now captured the nuisance and the error has been fixed among other minor bug fixes and improvements in this 3.2.1 version of the Flow app (iOS).
Polar Flow Events are for sports enthusiasts, just like you, who love to attend sports events and have little competition every now and then.
It provides sports events around the world, enables the possibility to share training sessions and thoughts before the race and peek into other participants’ race results after the race from the leaderboard. If you want to keep your race behind closed doors, you can choose to set the event private and keep the race just between you and your friends.
Click the community tab from the top bar in Flow and find an event close to you!
And again, we joined forces with our amazing group of Polar Ambassadors who will be attending races from 5k to marathons during the upcoming months and they will be sharing their results in the Flow Events. Go have a look, join the race and see if you can keep up with our fabulous ambassadors.
TrainingPeaks connectivity is now live! This means from today onwards you can automatically sync your training data with TrainingPeaks directly from Flow. The integration with TrainingPeaks allows us to extend our services even further by offering yet another opportunity for users to use their training data to improve performance, meet their goals and take your training to the next level.
To get started, simply log into your Polar Flow web account, go to settings, locate the new TrainingPeaks link and connect your Flow account with TrainingPeaks. TrainingPeaks will open automatically, and once logged into their account, you can authorize the connection.
It seems that after the previous release we had accidentally given super powers to a bug that caused the 3rd party power values to show double in the Flow web service. We’re glad to have tamed this monster and the power values should show correctly now after this release.
In addition to above, we also did some distance calculation fixes to enhance the user experience.
Once you have updated your Polar V650, please note that you may need to pair the sensors again with your device.
Now it’s time to show what you’re made of! Flow app just got a whole lot cooler with the possibility to share images, create sport profiles and targets directly from your mobile and link your phone’s calendar with your Flow app! Read more
Many of our Beat 2.0 users reported about the issue that the screen doesn’t stay on during training. We have now fixed the issue for Beat iOS users too. With version 2.0.1 you can now add the distance after indoor running and the connection with Apple Health is fixed.
Last week we released the new refreshed Beat 2.0! We got feedback that the screen doesn’t stay on during your training sessions. Now, the version 2.0.1 brings a solution for this and the screen stays on, unless you choose to turn it off. The same fix for iOS Beat is in the pipeline too, and we’ll release it as soon as possible.
The new version 1.2.134 of the A300 software includes small bug fixes which were mainly reported by you. In addition to the warning sound which was removed from the inactivity alert, we also fixed the charging indicator which wasn’t working properly.
