    Yes, but they can be a little tricky to sync up to work together. a reviewer on Amazon posted the following instructions which I found really helpful:

    - Wear the Polar H7 hear rate sensor
    - Go to iPod Nano Settings and check that Bluetooth is On. Note! iPod does not show H7 in Devices list.

    - Enter Fitness Nike+ application and tab the "i" icon.
    - Enter Nike+ iPod Sprot Kit and choose Heart Rate Monitor
    - Check that Heart Rate Monitor is ON
    - Choose Link from the list and tab the heart symbol.
    Now the application starts to link the H7 sensor. When the sensor is linked press the iPod button to return.

    - Enter Fitness Nike+ application and choose Sport (e.g. Run)
    - Choose Heart Rate from the List
    - Scroll to choose your sport and press Done
    - Choose None (or other settings)
    - Now you will see a heart symbol until iPod has found your heart rate signal.
    - When heart rate signal is found, iPod will automatically change the display info. Now you can see your heart rate and you can Start the exercise recording.

  • No. According to Polar customer service, Polar Wearlink is NOT compatible with iPod nano 7th gen. Only H6 or H7 with Bluetooth. Nike's web site says: The Polar Wearlink+ Heart Rate Transmitter is compatible with the Nike+ SportWatch GPS, Nike+ SportBand, and the iPod nano (5th, 6th, and 7th generation). This information is wrong. Wearlink will not link with the Nike+ program on the 7th gen nano
