Hi Wandawang,

I'm going to respond assuming the sensor you are referring to is the S3 stride sensor. If I am wrong, please let me know.

The S3 stride sensor uses a 2.4gHz frequency so when teaching the new sensor to the RS800 be sure to stay away from electrical equipment like cordless phones, wireless internet..etc.. This could be your issue.

Another issue could be that when replacing the battery, you bent the battery contacts in the sensor. So now the battery is not making a good contact with the sensor. You can fix this by taking the battery out of the sensor, and looking at the battery contact on the outer edge of the compartment. Take a pen, or small pair of pliers and bend those contacts back towards the battery. Place the battery back in, making sure the "open" is lined up to the "open" line on the battery cap. Insert the cap from the back end first and put pressure where the open symbol is to close the cap.

If this does not solve your issue, please contact us directly at

Best regards,

-Chris @ Polar USA

    Chris Zoller is a genius. I was frustrated thinking I had busted my S3. Four batteries later I read this post and BOOYAH! Stepped about 40 feet away from my internet wireless modem and bent the little wire toward the battery. Fantastic. Works as good as new once again.

Replaced batteries, outsid temp. does not display

Base Station Battery Installation
·Remove the printed vinyl label from the LCD screen of the base station
·Position the remote sensor near the base station
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the base station and insert (2) AA batteries according to the polarity markings. Replace the battery compartment cover.
·Within a short time the RF signal icon (located to the left of the outdoor temperature channel indicator) will start flashing. This indicates that the base station is ready to pick up the RF outdoor temperature signal from the remote sensor. It will continue to flash for 3 minutes or until the signal from the remote sensor is detected.

Register the Remote Sensor
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the remote sensor and slide the channel selector switch to your desired channel. For the first remote you may select any channel, for additional remotes select any unused channel
·Insert (2) AAA batteries according to the polarity markings. Be sure to install the batteries in the remote within the time that the RF signal icon is flashing on the base station.

Why is it when i changed batteries it still shows no batteries

Verify that the new batteries are good and that the polarity was not reversed; if no problems check the user guide or contact the manufacturer.

VDO x2dw cycle computer, sensor 2 doesn't work

Is the sensor properly spaced from the magnet on the spoke? Will the sensor pick up slow revolutions but not fast ones. Do you know that some of the sensors have two batteries in them, one on the top and one on the bottom, and both need to be changed at the same time?

Equity Wireless thermometer Outside temp never registers

From their instructions:

  • RESTART DISTANCE: For best results please bring the outdoor sensor in the house and place 5 feet from the display unit.
  • REMOVE POWER: Remove batteries from the sensor. Next remove batteries (and/or a/c cord) from the display.
  • DISCHARGE ELECTRICITY: With the power source removed, press one of the buttons on the display at least 20 times to clear all stored power. Please do this even if the display is blank to remove any remaining power. Verify the display is blank.
  • UNPOWERED FOR 15 MINUTES: It is important with most of our displays to remain without power for at least 15 minutes.
  • NOTE: Failure to allow a display to rest for 15 minutes can result in failure to connect with the outdoor sensor or missing segment on the display. The instruction manual describes a setup for a new unit that has not had time to build up stored power.
  • BATTERIES: Please be sure you are using fresh batteries tested to a minimum of 1.48, on a voltmeter that reads in numbers.
  • SENSOR FIRST: Place batteries into the outdoor sensor first. Make sure they are installed according to the polarity diagrams in the battery compartment.
  • DISPLAY NEXT: Install batteries (or a/c cord) into the display according to the diagram in the battery compartment.
  • CONNECTION: Allow the sensor and display to remain 5 feet apart for 15 minutes to establish a strong connection. Do not press buttons at this time. You should see a reading on the outdoor temperature area in the first minute.

Polar sucks, I'm going to Cateye

1 Answer

Cannot get my new cadence(WIND)sensor to work. will aparently teach. Any ideas

No reactions to any buttons:

Reset the training computer by pressing all the buttons simultaneously for two seconds until the display fills with digits. Press any button and set the time and date in Basic Settings after the reset. All other settings are saved. Skip the rest of the settings by pressing and holding STOP.

Polar Cadence Sensor W.I.N.D.

To activate the cadence sensor in your training computer, select Settings > Features > Shoes/bikes > Bike
1/2/3 > On > Cadence > On.
Teach new sensor? is displayed.
• If your sensor is already taught, select No.
• To teach a new sensor, make sure that there are no other cadence sensors nearby (40 m/131 ft) and then select Yes.
After selecting Yes, Start test drive is displayed. Rotate the crank a few times to activate the sensor.
The flashing red light indicates that the sensor is activated. Completed is displayed after the
teaching has been finished. The training computer is now ready to receive cadence data.
To return to time mode, press and hold the STOP button.

Good Luck,
