Polar H7 Vs Zephyr API & bluetooth’s health class

The H7 Polar  Heart rate monitor apparently “uses the bluetooth smart protocol. It’s an open standard, low energy technology, which all smart phones will eventually support. The new Polar H7 sensor makes use of three different standardized services:
– Heart rate service
– Battery service
– Device information service”

Yet the “Polar Bluetooth protocol itself is not an open SDK. It requires a licensing agreement”

Should have went to Zephyr! 🙂 They’ve published their entire API for developers. More to follow. At least I got some great info for the Polar Moderator….There are bluetooth standards which might mean if I aim to connect with Zephyr assuming they adhere to the standards then I might be able to connect to my Polar H7…..WORTH A SHOT!
