Founding Polar Electro Oy in 1977, Professor Seppo Säynäjäkangas pioneered the development of wireless heart rate measurement, launching the world's first chest strap transmitter and wrist based receiver in 1982. In 1993, Polar was first to identify how the variability in timing between heartbeats correlates with exercise intensity and recovery and subsequently developed many unique features to provide instant feedback on current fitness level, optimal training intensity, state of relaxation and recovery.
