What is Optical Heart Rate
S7, X7 and G7 Vector Devices are compatible with Optical Heart Rate armband monitors such as OH1 Polar and Scosche Rhytnms+ (RTHMM1.9) that transmit data over Bluetooth.
Enabling Bluetooth Heart Rate allows these monitors to transmit data to the Vector Device and disables both integrated and mag Heart Rate.
