The estimated average battery life span of the transmitter is 2500 hours of use. If you suspect that the transmitter battery
has run out, contact your authorized Polar Service Center for a replacement transmitter. Polar recycles used transmitters;;;
This is a common issue. The Polars and other Heart Rate monitors are not designed to be fixed by the consumers except for very specific models. These only look like watches, they are in fact mini computers and very susceptible to internal damage if not handled properly.
You need to send the unit it to a Polar Authorized Service Center to have fixed properly. There is not reset within the computer, if you had done everything correctly then it would work.
The only solution is too send into a Polar Authorized Service Center. Regular watch shops are not equipped to diagnose and/ or fix problems with Polar watches, or most other Heart Rate watches for that matter.
You are not missing anything. The stem (metal bar, wich is going into movement) from the crown (you say knob) is broke. The stem is made of one piece and screws directly into crown. You've been unfortunate to brake it and the tiny end of stem still in the crown - the rest looks OK , but actually it is what's left of the stem.
This is not the job you can do yourself, so, find the nearest watchmaker and ask for replacement.
Do not forget to rate, please.
You are right- crowns(stem caps) are usually just screw-on type, but you will need to find your nearest watchmaker anyway as crowns vary in thread, diameter and tube sizes. Depths, types and shapes are numerous as well. All these measurements MUST be very correct otherwise the crown simply will not fit and function.
Sometimes you can solve this sort of problem by sticking a couple of small pieces of tape on the front side of the lcd screen in places where they wont be visible on the outside - they will push the screen back onto its connections - there is quite possibly a small piece or seal that is now missing that would have done this job before.
If you want to conatct polar directly for help go to this link - you can get a user manual and all the contact details for service etc.
My advice would be to send it to them to get it fixed - replacing a battery on its own is rarely all that needs to be done to a watch when the battery runs out - it is a convenient service interval as seals need replacing, parts need checking or lubricating or cleaning etc.
Hope this helps :)
