To be considered "polar," you don't necessarily have to look at the strength of the dipole. Determining polarity can also be determined on direction/orientation and whether the dipole moments cancel each other out or not.
The strength of the dipole moment isn't really necessary because as long as the structure of the molecule is not symmetric, it will be polar. The number of dipole moments however is necessary, because if the dipole moments cancel each other out, it will be non-polar.
