Does Polar Speed/Cadence Sensor Connect?

Hello everyone,

I want to buy a polar speed and cadence sensor, but I would like to know if both connect to a notebook or mobile device (iOS) without an ANT+ gadget.


AFAIK the Polar sensors are BLE only so yes (and an ANT+ dongle won’t do you any good). Just be advised that the sensors have non-replaceable* batteries so I’d maybe look for something else instead. That being said, I’m not too impressed with the BLE sensors I’ve tried (Stages and random cheapo), the readings seem to be all over the place when around and above 60 km/h.

*: I have replaced the batteries on the older w.i.n.d. sensors with the same kind of construction countless times but it is a total hack, you can find instructions on the youtubes.
