Setup for Polar V800 (Legacy watch)
Updated over a week ago

To pair your Stryd with your Polar V800 please follow these steps:

Step 1: Link Polar App to the Stryd ecosystem

Linking the Polar app to the Stryd app will make data upload simple. The Polar app will automatically push every run recorded to the Stryd app.

Linking from PowerCenter:

Linking from the Stryd app on your phone:

  1. Open up the Stryd app on your phone.

  2. Go to settings > connected accounts

  3. Select "Import from Polar"

  4. If this method fails, please try linking the accounts through PowerCenter.
