I did not really mind, I could still see the messages on my phone and the Polar V800 did not display the full messages anyway.

But then my Polar V800 stopped syncing my data… say what? How can I see the work I put in to that workout in Polar Flow?

What ever I tried, it just did not work. Deleted the Bluetooth connection, tried to get the connection back. Deleted the Flow app, and put it back.

Nope did not work! I tried it all, but the bluetooth connection did not came back. No more smart messages. No more data tot Polar Flow.
