Polar Announces Open API Availability for Developers with Polar Open AccessLink

Polar, the leader in wearable sports and fitness technology for 40 years, announces the availability of Polar Open AccessLink, the company’s proprietary application programming interface (API), to all developers. Polar Open AccessLink is the access-channel to training and daily activity data recorded by Polar devices. It provides a direct information sharing link between the Polar ecosystem and an organization’s own data system. The newly open API offers unique opportunities for organizations such as health insurance companies, fitness club chains, corporate wellness service providers and platform providers. Polar Open AccessLink now provides:

· A Rich Polar Data Set
Once given permission by the user, developers can access basic information, such as weight and height. AccessLink also offers developers more specific data such as training sessions and daily activities, that originate from Polar products.
· Quick and Easy Registration:
Any registered Polar Flow user can now easily create their own API client via the admin wizard and start developing.

Polar Open AccessLink is free to use, and now open to all developers. To learn more about Polar Open AccessLink, visit https://www.polar.com/accesslink. Developers can get started here.
