Training in swimming mode
Before you can log a swimming session with Polar Verity Sense, it must be registered and linked to a Polar Flow account. This is done during the initial setup. For details, see Configuring Polar Verity Sense.
Verity Sense automatically records heart rate, distance and pace in the pool with the specific swim mode. Distance and pace calculations are based on the pool length set and the number of turns detected. The sensor detects turns via an integrated gyroscope. To get the most accurate swim metrics, it is essential to wear the sensor correctly.
If necessary, you can change the pool length setting after the swimming session from the training analysis in the Flow app so that the swimming metrics are updated accordingly.
