POLAR CHARGING

Post by Darrinf » Wed Jul 01, 2020 6:32 am

Have set up a polar account and have requested the card. I have also downloaded polar instant and fone that as well.

I am assuming that these are two separate things and looking at their site two different prices.

My question is am I correct. Polar instant is what you would use if you had not subscribed to get a card or key fob. Once I get my card I would no longer need to use polar instant.

Slightly confused new owner.

You are correct. Polar instant is for those who do not subscribe & therefore pay a higher price.

Thought so. Initially then will use the app and hope that I get a signal.

I think you will find that most if not all Polar chargers have a contactless payment facility as well, much easier to use than the app.

The polar chargers that are contactless do you need to register, have the app or an RFID card

No, if they have contactless then all you need to do is tap your contactless debit or credit card. However, be aware that Polar charge more for payment with contactless card.

I've used Polar quite a lot with no issues, but not enough to justify subscribing, so I use the Polar Instant option via the app which then charges to my credit card. Works well. You can also pay for it with a contactless credit card if you wish.
