Flowlink will not transfer data

I have the Polar FT40 and Polar Flowlink. The very first time I tried to transfer data it worked fine. I have tried on 3 different occasions to do so since but it will not keep a connection long enough to transfer. I have restarted my computer and even uninstalled and reinstalled the program all to no avail. I have only had this for about 30 days and am about to give up on it ever working again. Please help.

    Thanks for trying but there is no info available about the data transfer for Vista. There is way too much conflicting info about transferring from the FT40 to Vista so I have given up.

    I ran in to the same issue. After a bunch of tries, I finally got the flowlink to work once. And now,never again.
    I am using an FT60 and XP.

How do I get out the battery from a polar ft40? I removed cover but how to get out battery?


This heart rate monitor has a generic flaw with the sensor. The touch sensor fails after a few months of use. It is not a battery issue. Return to where you purchased it. Buy another brand.

Polar ft40 watch doesnt work. I have replaced the battery and nothing happens.


This heart rate monitor has a generic flaw with the sensor. The touch sensor fails after a few months of use. It is not a battery issue. Return to where you purchased it. Buy another brand. All of the drug stores carry this watch which has an abnormal return rate. The sensor fails after a few months while the watch function is fine. Seems like planned obsolescence.

1 Answer

Changed the battery and now it won't pick up the heart rate monitor. I know the monitor works because it is picked up by all the equipment in the gym.


If Heart Rate is being displayed on the equipment in the gym, but not your watch, then your chest strap is transmitting fine, but the watch is not recieving the signal.

It is not uncommon that when a battery is changed outside of a polar authorized service center that something can happen to the internal electronics. I would suggest you send the watch into Polar and have them take a look. if you have had the watch less than 2 years they will most likely take it under warranty and correct the issue, at the very least they have equipment to test and diagnose both the watch and strap, although it sounds like your HR strap is fine since you are getting HR on the machines.

Professional battery installation, doesn't turn on, is there a power on button? Or do I need to take it back and have them try again?


There are only a few Authorized Polar Service Centers. If you did not take it to one of these (which provide a 90 day warranty) they may have broken something or put in the wrong battery.

Polar and other HRM's are mini computers and actually quite delicate inside, they are not normal watches and while many watch repair places profess to be able to fix them, more often than not they cause a new problem. They are also repressurized with a special machine to keep them watertight, your watch is most certainly not watertight anymore and will eventually cause yoiu problems.

Too answer your question, no power on switch, if the battery install was good you would see a display. Take the watch back to the shop, and if they can not fix it, send it to Polar and then have the shop reimburse you for the repair. Polar will be happy to send them a detailed and Itemized account of what they had to fix.

How to change battery in women's FT40


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
I would send to Polar to have them do the battery. The receiver should be tested for water resistance using special equipment after battery replacement. Most watch repair shops do not have the equipment to do that. During the warranty period, it is necessary to service the unit at an authorized service center to keep the warranty valid. Also spare parts may be needed.
