Nokia N97 and Polar Heart Rate Monitor: where to buy the Polar for Nokia

September 4, 2009

Quite a few people have asked for a link to the place where I purchased the Polar heart rate monitor belt for the Nokia N97 mobile phone. It is purchased via a Danish site

If you select the menu “Pulsure” on the main page and then “Polar Tilbehør” in that sub-menu, then you get to another page where you select the “Polar Wearlink Bluetooth” belt. I don’t know if it will work with other phones than N79 and N97 – but hopefully I will test some later or get feedback if you get it to work with other phones.

  1. Update: I manage to pair it with Nokia 5800. See

  2. Hi,
    Great info.
    Has anyone actually managed to purchase one of these?
    It seems to have been removed from the site and I cannot get through to them on the phone.

  3. Hi Adrian,

    You are right. It is now missing from their site.
    I search for it and if you look here:
    you will see it states “Udsolgt” which is the same as “Sold Out”. So either they have sold all the items in stock or they where kindly asked to remove it from the site, since it from the beginning was intended to be sold and used only together with the Nokia N79 Active.

    When I purchased it, I asked if they knew if it would work with Nokia N97 and they replied that they did not know much about it – and could not say if it would work with N97. I just took the change and ordered it and fortunately it worked (and until now it is tested with N97, 5800 Express Music and N95).

    I have had quite a few people who has asked for a place to buy it, but I don’t know if they actually ordered it.

    I guess we just have to wait for Polar/Nokia to officially support other phones – which they hopefully will someday.

  4. the Nokia N97 for me is the best phone that i bought. it is definitely a bang for the buck phone. nice features and cool looks

  6. I just want to add some information about the Nokia for Polar.

    I talked with and they will not got any more Wearlink in stock as Nokia has removed the product from the marked – what a completely foolish decision!

  7. Thanks for the update Tommy. It is appreciated. I also think it is a great product combination, so it is for sure very sad if it is discontinued.


    Polar claims that we can buy the wearlink again. Unfurtunately, I haven’t found any stores that sell it.

    Thank you for your mail.

    Have checked with our Engineer.Maybe Nokia 5800 Bluetooth can’t communicate with our Bluetooth heart rate monitor strap due that the protocol of Nokia 5800 is a little different from our Bluetooth heart rate monitor protocol.

    We can send our Bluetooth protocol to you to check,you can write your own software according to our protocol.

    Could you inform me your e-mail address ? Then I can send more details of this product to you.

    By the way,could you send us some corporate information and history of your company ? It will be very helpful for us to cooperate in long term.

    I’m awaiting your reply.Thank you !

    Best Regards,

    May Ling


    Then, Can we develeper the protocol?
