How do I set the time?


For a complete manual visit my tips and tricks page.

The time is under: Settings>Watch

To access settings push either of the right side buttons from the main default screen
Push the red button
use the right buttons again to scroll to watch
Push the red button
Right buttons again to choose time
Push red button

The Right side buttons scroll through choices, the red button is your chooser/ confirmation button. The left side bottom button will return you to a previous screen.

All other settings can be changed in the same way.

Have a Polar CE0537 S725 watch.I want to reset my time and all the other settings,please help.


If you go to my Tips and Tricks page, there is a link to the manuals for all Polar watches, including the S725.

To reset anything you need to access SETTINGS. On the S-Series watches push either the top right or bottom right buttons until you see the screen that says settings. Then push the red button to choose. use the right buttons again to scroll to the area you want to set. Keep repeating for every function you want to change.

As an alternative, the S725 connects to software that would have come with your watch, if you are connected to the computer through this software you can reset settings from the software and import them to your watch. The specifics of this are in the user manual.

I changed my wife's Polar F11 HRM watch battery. When I replaced the battery the entire screen lit up, everything. I let it sit for a few minutes and the normal screen came up. Kind of like it was "booting...


Try resetting. From the manual, "if there are no reactions to any buttons, reset the wrist unit by pressing all the buttons simultaneously for two seconds. All other settings but time and date are saved."

Is it possible the watch block is not in correctly and the display is getting squished?

Hello, I am looking for a replacement body for my Polar F11 HR watch.


Wow. I just went through this.

Polar doesn't sell replacement bodies. You can only go through a repair center for about $50. I bought a "display only" non-functioning model off of eBay for $10 and the body is the same as a functioning model.

It came with protective plastic over the face that peels off and a dummy display on the inside that peels off too.

The only problem is the display model didn't have a seal/gasket and after removing my old seal it was stretched out and didn't fit. I cut the seal to make it shorter but now it is no longer waterproof.

It is possible the seal can be purchased at one of the Polar service centers.

I suggest removing the seal carefully without stretching it.

Good luck.

Fading LCD display on Polar F11


I have this problem as well! I was just googling this problem when I found your post. I have the exact same watch and have had it for 2 years. I don't expose it to the sun or heat though.

Polar F11F Error 16


you need to hold down all 4 or 5 buttons at once. This will reset your watch and bring up the message "welcome to polar fitness world". Press ok button 1x to start your setup process.

Polar F11 blank display


Sounds to me as the integrated circuit has been damaged.
In this case you will not be able to repair it yourself as watchmakers skills needed.

Polar F11 not responding


Hello glmatta, The unit can be repaired. Remove the units battery. Remove the screws holding the case together. Carefully open the case on a table covered in cloth, T-shirt type cloth, disconnect the flat ribbon cables, lightly clean with a #2 pencile eraser, reinsert cables. Use the same steps on PCbd pin connections. Important question, Do all of the buttons have the same amount of snap when pressing & releasing? If not you have a bad keypad. A bad button swith will cause tis type of malfunction. Contact the Mgfr requesting technical support for possible replacement part and cost.
