In association with Polar.

Most of us measure our training with some sort of device or app and take for granted the science behind it. Recording heart rate has now become one of the more obvious parameters to use when analysing our effort levels in training or a race, but where did all of this start?

It was in Finland where Polar designed the first wearable heart rate monitor back in 1977, a ground breaking move at the time. Since then, the technology has progressed significantly so in this video, we are going to be looking inside the Polar HQ to find out more about what goes on!
