change language back to english on polar heart rate monitor ft4


I had the same problem. So I will try to guide you by button push method (because I didn't understand anything in Dutch that said on the panel). If you look at the polar main wrist watch (easy to say) you will see 5 button. 2 of left and 3 on right. 2 left are top -backlight (21) bottom - back or exit from menu (22). The 3 right buttons are top - scroll up (31), middle - menu (32) and bottom -scroll down (33). Now we know the button number here we go.

Hold 22 for 3 sec. You will see current time showing up. Press 33 once -- Setting ---> press 32 once ---> watch time and date ---> press 33 three time ----> general setting shows up ----> press 32 once ----> button sound shows up ---> press 33 twice ---> language shows up --->press 32 once ----> language blinks ----> press 33 or 31 till you see english or your language of choice ---->press 32 once ----> language is set ---->press 22 for 3 sec and you are back to the watch menu. Hope that helps. This will guide you even if you don't understand anything from the language.

Under the settings, limits, the limits on the max HR stop @ 100. I want to increase the setting on max hr but it stops @ 100 and then returns to 18. help [polar F4]


Go into settings.

Press the center button on the right hand side of the watch 1 time you will see settings watch time & date appear in the display.

Press the bottom button on the right side of the watch1 time to get into the TRAINING SETTINGS FUNCTION.

When you see TRAINING SETTINGS in the display press the center button on the right side of the watch once.

You are in TRAINING SETTING mode.

Press the bottm button on the right hand side of the watch 3 times until you see
ZONE LIMITS displayed.

When you see ZONE LIMITS displayed press the center button on the right side of the watch 1 time to enter into the ZONE LIMITS FUNCTION.

Now, you should see the lower end heart rate limit number blinking.

To adjust this number use the top button on the right hand side of the watch to increase this limit or lower button on the right hand side to decrese it.

When you have it set where you want it press the center button 1 time to save that setting.

Now you should see the upper limit number blinking.

Follow the same steps to set the upper heart rate limit.

When you have pressed the ceter button to set the upper limit you have completed setting the heart rates limits and the display should read: LIMITS SET!
