I ve connected hero 5 black to polar h10 heart rate monitor but data overlay on video?

Hello. I ve a hero 5 black connected with polar h10 heart rate monitor.

In genuary 2017 they  said  i can overlay heart rate data directly on my video.

Well..i can t see this information on video itself, but only in post production video.

I ve used go pro app  to connect  the camera and heart rate monitor. Polar beat app to set the ability of  the  heart monitor to connect to 2 low bluetooth energy devices simultaneously (denied ant connectivity instead).

W8ing for serious and valid answers. 

Thank u all in advance. 

Nick

I know  polar and GoPro have discontinued the collaboration...but what is done is done...and i suppose  is still true in september 2019.

So what does Polar Pro have to say about this?

Re: I ve connected hero 5 black to polar h10 heart rate monitor but data overlay on video?

@nicolab8624, we cannot guarantee this functionality in the app/camera since the Developer Program which provides SDKs to Polar to build connectivity with GoPro cameras has long been discontinued.

 

We do not have any new information available regarding this matter as of this time.

Re: I ve connected hero 5 black to polar h10 heart rate monitor but data overlay on video?

Ok. The Developer Program was discontinued.
True.
But the question is: had ever the aforementioned connectivity with polar heart rate monitor devices (I.e. polar h10) been working in the past?
Couz the Bluetooth connection works, I can certify u by photo of my GoPro h5black camera and h10 monitor. BUT besides Bluetooth connection can I overlay heart rate data directly on the videos (GoPro itself had promised that)?
Or the promise simply has aborted.
I am a serious person, not an hater or something similar. I really like GoPro and Polar products

Re: I ve connected hero 5 black to polar h10 heart rate monitor but data overlay on video?

I seriously doubt you're going to get any answers here. GoPro has had some serious restructuring over the past few years and it's very unlikely there will be somebody who can come to this forum to provide the answers you're looking for. as this is a member to member community support for him, it is possible that someone who has used the GoPro and polar Pro will be able to give you their experience, but it might be a pretty long wait for that answer to come.

I hope that you are asking the same questions on More than this GoPro and the polar Pro forum. You can always try Reddit and the many other user-created forums.

For now though, I think the safest answer to assume, is No.

@nicolab8624, I found these details at Polar's support page that might help: https://support.polar.com/en/search?s=gopro&search=support

U was right . Polar pro have nothing to do with the aforementioned questions.
But Polar , meaning those guyz from Finland who create sportwatches in China (apple do the same) and are appreciated around the world.
