Polar the leading designer of heart rate monitors designed every heart rate monitors to be water resistance. All Polar heart rate monitors may be used for swimming with the exception of the RS800 and CS600.

The Polar Heart rate monitors are water resistant up to 20, 30, 50 or 100 meters depending on the model. To maintain the water resistance, do not operate the buttons of the Polar wrist receiver under water.

Which straps are better to swim with heart rate monitor?

The Polar T-Series transmitters (T31, T31C) are best choice while using heart rate monitor for swimming. It is one-piece design that encases all of the electrical components inside of the unit. The Polar T-Series transmitters do not have battery compartment or O-ring seal to cause leaking or failure and are not exposed to electronics to cause corrosion. This is why a Polar T-Series transmitters are the only 100% waterproof transmitters available on the market today.

If you are using heart rate monitors for swimming, It is better to purchase T31C model Chest strap.

Other considerations while using heart rate monitor for swimming:

Heart rate measurement in a water environment is technically demanding for the following reasons:

Pool water with a high chlorine content and seawater may be very conductive and the electrodes of a transmitter may get short circuited and ECG signals cannot be detected by the transmitter unit.

Jumping into the water or strenuous muscle movement during competitive swimming may cause water resistance that shifts the transmitter on the body to a location where it is not possible to pick up the ECG signal.

The ECG signal strength varies depending on the individual's tissue composition. The percentage of people who have problems in heart rate measuring is considerably higher in a water environment than in other use.
