The new Polar heart rate monitor H1 transmitter with soft strap has been rated as the most comfortable and reliable by the testers at the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"Last year we gave the Suunto Comfort belt this honor but Polar really stepped it up with the new H series transmitters," says Rusty Squire, president of the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"The previous generation Wearlink chest straps had a mesh fabric that wore out and soiled easily to create transmission disruption," says Squire. He adds, "Not so with the new Polar soft strap because it uses an imbedded light rubber diode that is easily washable and does not have any perforation."
The new H1 transmitter is also only 5/16ths of one inch thick and thinner than the old Wearlink transmitter. The new Polar H1 transmitter and soft strap are compatible with any Polar FT series watch - Polar FT4, Polar FT7, FT40, FT60 and FT80. They are coded straps that avoid cross-talk in busy gyms and will be recognized by roughly 90% of all original Gym Equipment, which is a big plus for Polar according to Squire.
Polar also has a new Polar H2 transmitter that is similar to the old Wearlink WIND and uses both 5kHz and 2.4GHz W.I.N.D. transmission for maximum compatibility.

Polar also has a new H7 transmitter that transmits a heart rate signal in Bluetooth Smart so it is compatible with iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S. "The new H7 straps for iPhone 4s and 5 still use the new Polar soft strap with its greater comfort and reliability," says Squire.
"The beauty of the Polar H7 Bluetooth Smart is that all you need is a Bluetooth Smart compatible app and your iPhone 4S or 5 and you are good to go," says Squire. He adds, "Polar H7 also works with most Polar watches and with approximately 90% of all gym equipment so it brings a lot more to the table than any of its competition."
All of the new Polar heart rate monitor H series transmitters and soft strap replacements are available now. If you would like to know if your watch model is compatible just simply call the Heart Rate Watch Company at 866-586-7129.
