    Hi,

    I was wondering if it is possible to link Apple Watch to Polar H7 bluetooth chest strap heart rate monitor meanwhile it is connected to an iPhone (so, basically, to have Polar HR info on both AW and iPhone, at the same time).
    does anyone knows?
    thanks in advance

    No. It can only pair with one device at a time. I use motofit as a solution. Pair the HR to the watch and it beams the workout info including HR to the phone for easier viewing.

    I have found that when you have the H7 connected to the AW, the iPhone will grab the HR information from the H7 (via the Apple Watch).

    When you look at the data in the Health app (on the iPhone), you'll see individual readings with the Bluetooth symbol. When you look at a particular data point, it'll say that the source was the apple watch, but the device is the H7.
