List of Polar H10 Compatible Watches (5 Brands That Works)

Most people prefer using an external heart rate sensor instead of the built-in HR sensor on their wristwatch. That’s because connecting an external heart rate sensor to your watch enhances heart rate tracking and records more precise data.

The Polar H10 is one of the popular choices among the external heart rate sensors available in the market. With the support of ANT+, the device becomes compatible with a large variety of external devices, including gym equipment like treadmills.

Additionally, watch brands that support ANT+ and Bluetooth are compatible pairing with Polar H10. But, there is confusion because some watches like Fitbit and Amazfit having Bluetooth aren’t compatible with connecting Polar H10 directly. What’s the reason?

The Bluetooth alone won’t help to connect external accessories. Your device must support something called Bluetooth host mode.

Many high-end watches like Apple Watch and Garmin support Bluetooth host mode, which allows them to pair external accessories like headphones, sensors, etc.

We did some research finding the watches compatible with Polar H10 that gets paired directly independent of any app.
