The Polar 0H1 is an optical heart rate sensor worn on the arm. This heart rate monitor armband accurately and consistently captures heart rate using Polar’s proprietary heart rate algorithm and 6-LED solution. Your heart rate is the only true and accurate measure of your intensity level while exercising and a heart rate monitor is the easiest and most effective way to continuously measure your heart rate while you are exercising.
For players interested in participating in a cardio tennis class YTC will loan you a Polar 0H1 for the duration of the class.
