Polar Powers Veri's Exercise Insights to Unlock Metabolic Health

3 minutes read

The company that brought you a sports lab on your wrist is bringing heart rate to Veri!

With Polar and Veri working together, you can see your heart rate data alongside your glucose levels to: 

  • Make more informed decisions about the exercise type, intensity, and timing that work for your health goals
  • Learn the best meal composition and timing to support your exercise routine 
  • Understand the difference between food-related glucose spikes and exercise-related spikes

Research shows that higher glucose levels are associated with higher heart rate in healthy individuals [1]. Over time, both higher fasting glucose levels and higher resting heart rate can increase the risk of diabetes, insulin resistance, and chronic conditions [2]. Veri and Polar believe that understanding the correlation between these data is crucial to achieving your best health and longevity.

The importance of cardiometabolic health 

Heart health, metabolic health, glucose levels, and insulin are all connected, and they can affect — for better or for worse — the way your heart functions. By combining Veri and Polar’s powerful biometric tools, you can easily connect the dots between glucose and heart rate. These connections come together seamlessly in the Veri app to help you achieve better cardiometabolic health.

On their own, glucose and heart rate monitoring both provide powerful biological data that can help users improve their health. When combined, the picture of your health comes into focus. Heart rate and glucose together provide an even greater connection between daily habits and long-term outcomes.

While the impact that exercise has on heart health cannot be overstated, the mental benefits of exercise can also aid in stress management, one of Veri’s four pillars of metabolic health. 

Whether you’re exercising for weight loss or looking to gain a better understanding of how to fuel your workouts, having all of your data in one place is key to making a deeper connection and building an awareness of your body.

With this new collaboration, users are able to make informed lifestyle choices to reverse insulin resistance, manage weight, and extend their healthspan

Heart rate data from Polar now seamlessly integrates with blood glucose levels from Veri.

How it works

This integration is available to all Veri users with Polar devices.

Getting started is simple: ensure both your Polar devices and Veri app are connected with Apple Health (iOS) or Google Fit (Android) and that you’ve selected a heart rate data source. Exercise and heart rate data will then appear automatically any time you complete a workout. No logging required. To learn more about syncing your Veri app with Apple Health to receive heart rate data, read here.
