Polar M430 Detailed ReviewPolar have delivered on the promise to implement continuous heart rate (optical) in today’s firmware of v1.1.4. Alongside this the FLOW app gives you the all day view of that data.

There are also minor improvements to show you sleep continuity and the new ability to ‘rate’ your sleep.

Watch out for: A hit on battery life.
