must be paired in the appropriate App (eg Polar Beat, runtastic, etc)

Just set mine up with I Phone 5 using Polar Beat App. Free in I Tunes
As mentioned the pairing is in the App. Worked seamlessly.
Using mine on road bike. Great addition as it displays right on your I phone, and gives you feeback
along the way . e.g. Mileage, average Heart rate
At end of workout , it posts the results right into www.polartrainer.com without having to do anything.
You need to set up a free account there first.
Great graphical presentation of results.
I am a long time polar user, and previously had to load this type of data off my wristwatch type HRM via infrared
set up. Now its done for me without effort.
I can still go in and rename things to fit my desire e.g. name of cycling/walking/running route.
Well done polar and THANK YOU Apple for making life/excercise more enjoyable.

I have an iPhone 5 and purchased the Polar H7 Bluetooth heart rate monitor. paired it and it worked GREAT for 2 workouts. tried again a day later and it will not pair again. I removed the POLAR Beat App and reloaded and tried to pair again but no luck. I have tried to also pair to other APps like Endomondo and Digifit and while it paired fine last week - it willno longer pair.
Whether related or not - I have also had issues pairing to my 2013 Hyundai Elantra since last week... Coincidence... I think not.. What are my options?

I'm having the exact same problem as you. Was wondering if you were able to get the issue resolved.

happens sometimes. for me it helps to disable bluetooth and enable again.

Eldrendragonlord, did you try polar h7 and a headset stereo bluetooth at the same time? I want to know if polar and headset via bluetooth it's possible at same time with iphone.

I also have the same issue - H7 paired fine worked for a few weeks and then the other day just stopped working / refuses to pair or even find the H7 monitor

Ok I finally got this to work - not sure how though
I replaced the battery
removed polar heart beat app
performed an iphone 5 reboot
then i was able to pair
probably the battery was dying

My H7 worked great for many months then suddenly stopped working during a bike ride in the mountains .
I figure the battery was wearing down plus the drop in temp caused even more of an energy drop and it would not connect. New battery and still no connection, tried many attempts and different batteries but still no results. Trying to contact POLAR was a waste of time and they blame it on the iPhone.
Turns out that when you change batteries you need to short out the internal battery connectors to completely discharge the unit or wait for it to discharge on it's own. After doing this the H7 finally paired again with all the apps that can use it on my phone.
Thanks to an Amazon.com reviewer who left this info on a review.

Polar Beat 1.4 and IOS 7.1. Polar Beat on an Iphone 4S worked fine for many months with Polar H7 until Friday. Under settings it says HR sensor not active. The Polar H7 and the ID number show in Polar Beat but will not connect. Polar H7 still works with a Polar FT40 so the belt is giving off a signal. Very frustrating. Polar H7 will not connect with other apps such as Endomondo. Tried a number of the above, but with no success.

BRILLIANT! fixed my problem! battery died, new battery didn't help, shorted the two battery contacts inside the H7 with a small screwdriver, put new battery back in, now its BACK BABY!!
