Polar 710 is giving high heart rate readings(4 posts)

Polar 710 is giving high heart rate readingsAllezcomp

I've noticed that when I upload an exercise from my watch to the the Polar Precision Performance software, the last reading is always super high. I will cool down after my exercise so my heart rate will be in the 110-120 range but the last reading will be in the 160-170's. I've noticed that this only happens if the watch is only recording heart rate. It never does this if I'm using the speedometer, cadence or altitude. Has anyone else noticed this?

Did you get the latest patch from Polar's web site?

Whereas I have never experienced this, a friend of mine who bought his 710 a few months before me was. We downloaded the patch, and it went away.

I get that sometimes depending on where I stop my exercise. In my case the graph will shoot up after the stop marker. To correct it right click the graph window, in the pop-up select Error Correction, then click the scissor button in the newly popped up window to filter the data automatically. It will get rid of anything that doesn't belong there.
