Polar Heart Rate Exercise Sensor

Polar Heart Rate Exercise Sensor


The Polar Heart Sensor consists of a Heart Rate receiver and Polar transmitter belt. This sensor is used to monitor the electrical signal of a person’s heartbeat in beats per minute during and after exercise.

Using a Polar Heart Rate Sensor

This signal is measured at the surface of the skin by two electrodes that are embedded in the Polar® transmitter belt which is worn around the ribcage.

The heart rate information is transmitted wirelessly from the belt to a Heart rate receiver which can be up to 80 cm away. This will allow heart rate to be measured even during exercise.

Practical Teaching

The SmartQ Polar Heart Rate Sensor can be used to investigate a number of scientific experiments such as:

  • Baroreceptor reflex
  • Compare the heartbeat of different individuals 
  • Monitor the speed at which the heart rate returns to normal following exercise (recovery rate). 
  • Monitor the heart rate before and during brief vigorous activity.
  • Monitor changes to the recovery rate of a subject who is undergoing a fitness regime.
  • Change in heart rate due to everyday activity e.g. talking, breathing, etc.
  • The effects of a mild stimulant such as caffeine in cola or coffee

Additional Belt Information

The Polar transmitter belt is sealed, 100% waterproof and ECG accurate. It will switch off automatically as soon as there is no skin contact between the electrodes. 

The belt is powered by a 3 V Lithium battery, providing an average of 2,500 hours of use. When the battery becomes weak or empty the transmitter part of the belt will need to be replaced.

The receivers will pick-up signals from the closest Polar transmitter source, and that includes other transmitter belts if within range. Keep a distance of at least 2 metres between different Polar Heart sensor users.

The Heart Rate receiver’s red LED is an indicator of signal received from transmitter belt.
