Polar OH1 heart rate monitor and PM5

Post by tesseracts » March 11th, 2019, 6:17 pm

For anyone who is interested, I tried out the polar oh1 heart rate monitor (the arm band) with my PM5 and ergdata. I wasn't sure if I would be able to connect the HR monitor and my phone to the PM5 since they both use Bluetooth. But I was able to!
But it only worked if I first connected ergdata on my phone to the PM5. And then I turned on the HR monitor and connected it to the PM5.

Do you find the OH1 to be accurate?

I've been using my Garmin VivoActive 3 but it is very unreliable for rowing. It takes forever for my heart rate to rise on the watch even though I know it is pounding!!

Thus I'm trying to decide between the Polar H10 strap or this Polar OH1 monitor.

Thanks in advance for your feedback,
Gary
