The polar OH1+ comes with a "goggle clip". Meaning, if you're a triathlete, you can clip the HR monitor to your goggles while you swim and it will record your temporal pulse for accurate HR data. That in itself is a nice feature, but what polar doesn't mention, and perhaps more importantly, is that you can use the clip anywhere there is reliable pulsation and a flat area of skin. Enter the "waist clip". I started to clip the monitor into my running shorts and cycling bibs and found that it will accurately record HR data from the femoral pulsation. Perhaps even better data than the arm (More stable, less light penetration, stronger pulsation etc). This means no arm band, no chest strap, just a small clip into my shorts which is secure and hidden. This takes comfort and accuracy to another level. For this reason alone, this is the only optical HR monitor to consider.
- Getting it on and off is fairly simple. That's probably one of the biggest upsides to this compared to the H10.
- It's quite lenient on where you put it. Meaning, you don't need to place it on one specific part of you're arm. Anywhere on your forearm and bicep area works.
- It connects fairly seamlessly. Once I got it setup on my phone, I just need to turn the OH1+ on and it connects automatically. Works fine with the Strava app and with my Wahoo Elemnt Bolt.
- The charger is nice and easy to use. It's a small USB cradle that you just need to pop the OH1+ into.
- There's only one button on the OH1+ and I find it quite difficult to press. You have to push it in quite a bit for it to respond and there have been points in which I thought I turned it off, but hadn't due to not pushing it in enough. I usually have to use my fingernail to get it to work.
- It takes sometime for it to detect heart rate spikes. I think this is one of the main upsides to the H10, that being that it's ECG based while the OH1+ uses LEDs. This simply means that the H10 detects heart rate changes faster than the OH1+. For me, this isn't a major problem because I'm doing runs/bike rides over long periods of time and the few seconds of delay aren't major for what I do. But if you're someone that needs to quickest readings, then an ECG based monitor would be better suited.
The only other thing I think one might want to note is that when it is on, the OH1+ has an LED that blinks intermittently no matter what. During the day, it's not super noticeable, while at night is can make you standout. You can decide if this is a good or bad thing.
But overall, I'm happy with the product and would recommend it.
Edit. Customer service responded 4 days later and quoted $13 for the charging adapter and $5 for S/H. 22% of the whole unit purchase price for something with such a high probability of losing, I'm dropping to one star.
Notes: 1) Although the material indicates that it comes with a goggles clip for swimming, there are actually two of them of different sizes in the box. 2) There are 3 different apps you may need -- if you use it unpaired and upload the data to your phone, then you need Polar Beat on your phone and a Polar Flow account on their website; if you use it paired to a watch or cycling computer and upload the data to your phone, then you need Polar Flow on your phone; if you upload the data to your PC with their USB dongle, and not through your phone or watch, then you need a Polar Flow account on their website, and Polar FlowSync on your PC. 3) None of the apps tell you how much battery life remains -- you have to rely on the LED color and blinking pattern. 4) It doesn't pair with the Apple Watch.
Although figuring out which apps I needed was a bit confusing, the Polar OH1+ is just so much more convenient to wear, works well and is just as accurate as chest straps (see https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2019/03/polar-oh1-plus-optical-hr-sensor-in-depth-review.html for a detailed review).
