    Has there been any info on whether the watch is Gymlink compatible? I currently use a Bluetooth Polar H7 that has Gymlink when I go to the gym, wearing a watch would be much more convenient.

    Bluetooth Polar H7 is a bluetooth HR device that can pair with anyone by design. The apple watch pairs with the iphone, thats it. So im quite sure thats a no.

    You can't even access the HR sensor (or any of the sensors) in the API yet. The only way for apps to get HR info is reading them from the health kit database.
