Do you have your physical settings up to date?

Did you know that the physical settings you were asked to set to your Polar when you took it to use actually affect all the data you receive from your training device? For example, if you haven’t set your weight correctly to your account, you might actually be burning more calories than the set weight indicates or the other way around! Nobody wants to miss those burnt calories, right? Read more

Polar Loop and Loop 2 software updates

Today was a Loop day, since we did software releases for both of our Polar Loop and Polar Loop 2 activity trackers. The release included some important back end fixes but also a notification message to your Loop to remind you to re-plug the USB cable if the charging needs to be reset. Be sure to update your Loop software (Loop 1.2.16 & Loop2 1.1.33) the next time you sync your Loop with FlowSync.

Full list of the fixes and enhancements can be seen from the Polar Loop Release Notes and Polar Loop 2 Release Notes.

Care for your Polar

Your Polar device is your daily companion and it also needs love and care just as the rest of us. It bears with you through all those obstacles that come your way and pushes you to your limits so it’s more than fair to give your Polar some TLC every once in a while.

Rinse and dry your product*, especially the USB port, after every training session to keep it clean from sweat, salt water and dirt. No need to worry, since the USB port itself is water resistant and you can rinse it under running water without worrying it would damage the electronic components. Remember not to charge or synchronize your Polar device when it is still wet. This also applies after a sweaty training session when there still might be some moisture on the surface of the device.

To make sure the device is dry, shake off the extra water from the USB area, dry it with a cloth and leave it to dry with the USB cap open to ensure that also the moisture from  the USB area will dry up. Drying times vary depending on the environment (humidity etc.) and in very humid conditions it might take hours to completely dry up.  Before syncing, it’s good to double check the USB port is dry and there’s no dust,dirt or even hair in the connector cavity.

You can find detailed care instructions for your device from here.
