Can I use a Polar H4 in the gym with activio?

Hi,

I bought a Polar H7 for my gym/outdoor to rid of need to carry 1-3 heartrate belts to the training and wear two at the same time (sometimes).

Garmin watch want an ANT belt for outdoor,

Trentmill want a 5 khz transmission belt to show/control heart rate,

Nike/Polar app on mobile phone want a bluetooth LE belt

Bonus-track and happy hour:

Life fitness trendmill saves training to iPod with old connector (G4 and older) and iPod uses Nike+ footpod for indoor at Woodway self-powered trendmill.

So I want to start with Activio monitoring now.

Do I have to add a new gadget to this list ?

Does the Activio smart belt support bluetooth LE and 5 khz like the Polar H7 ?

or

Can I connect my Polar H7 to the Activio monitor in gym ?

The Activio Smart Belt supports Bluetooth LE (Smart) and can connect to most training apps. The Polar H7 can also be connected to the Activio app for iPhone and Android. However, the Activio gym systems use our own Activio radio protocol and no other belt than our Smart Belt or Standard Belt can be connected to it. For Smart Belt support the gym also need the latest gym software to support that.
