Polar Watches and Heart Rate Now Interface with GoPro Action Cameras

hr-strap

Polar unveiled its new H10 heart rate strap at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas today, along with additional features for its V800 GPS and M600 smart watches, which the company says will now allow users to remotely control basic functions of their GoPro Hero4 and Hero5 action cameras with their watches via Bluetooth. In addition, users will also be able to generate heart rate overlays onto their GoPro videos as well. 

Additional features that are also heading to the M600 and V800 GPS sports watches, will allow users to view basic GoPro data from their wrists, including battery life remaining on the camera and to check in on the status of filming.

GoPro connectivity will start with the Polar V800 sports watch being able to connect to the HERO4 by the end of this month, the V800 and M600 will be able to connect to a HERO5 in early 2017. And, finally, the H10 heart rate monitor will be able to connect to both cameras by the end of spring 2017.
