    That is not the intent of the device, it is not a HR strap, it is an all-in-one device to capture all relevant data within itself. It does not have the hardware to transmit HR so this cannot be accomplished with an update, it would need to be a completely new device.

    I imagine this is not what you were hoping to hear but let me know if this answered your question. If it did, please mark it as a solution so other can look for it if they have the same question.

    No, and even if there was it is unlikely that the watch would connect anyway as most fitness machines connect to analog straps only (on occasion they connect to ANT+ devices). The watch is BT+ only. Even my BT+ HR strap will not connect to my treadmill as it will only connect to Polar analog straps

    My polar h7 - hr strap - is connected contrmporary to my treadmill and to my polar ft7 qatch/hr monitor, too.
    May be the treadmill receives from polar h7 a not bluetooth signal from the polar h7 sensor; but there are two devices that read the frequency.
    So for the Bluetooth device the connection is only one to one?!?!

    Polar uses a proprietary analog signal, not BT. BT is one-to-one.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
