How to change the battery on a Polar F11 Heart Monitor

Battery is dead on my Polar heart rate monitor (not the chest strap). The back comes off but it looks like there is a "knack" to getting the battery out.

I've came across many Polar watches and there are two different types how rhe battery is held in place.
1) Battery contact is screwed down to movement plate with one ore two tiny screws. In this case you have to unscrew them and the contact will come off releasing the battery.
2) The battery contact is fitted using 'clip-on' assembly. In this case take a tweezers or metal pin and pull the contact end outwards. This will undo the contact and release the battery. You will find thet contact end if you will follow to that contact right into movement where it's clipped onto small plastic knob.
Details of the battery you will find written on the old one.

My polar heart rate monitor counts the heart beets for quite a while before it gives me the heart rate as a number it may be up to one hour before it gives me a mumber.


I would go to Polar for a definitive answer but your monitor may not be making a good contact with your body. Therefore the reception of your heart beat is constantly starting over and can't give a reading fast enough. Try adjusting how you wear the monitor and see if it makes a difference. There is a battery in the chest strap also. The new ones have to go to Polar to get replaced unfortunately. That is another possibility.

There is a step by step guide in my tips and tricks of things to try with your strap. If none of these work and you are getting a signal from another source then you need to get either a new strap, a new sender or both. If you send the T-31 wearlink into polar they can run a diagnostic and see which is bad and sell you just the piece you need or a whole new chest piece.

Erratic reading


It still under the warranty, so, in worst case you can send it back for repair at no cost to you. But first try to use this link:

This may help to solve the problem yourself.

My Polar HR monitor ce0537 do not pickup Hart rate


Had the same problem. Just figured it out. The center Polar Logo on the strap needs to touch your chest in a firm way. Bend it back slightly so it fits snug on the middle of your chest.

Can not change battery on Polar chest strap


Yes, there are a few.
1) As you may noticed, coin and even screwdriver blades are never sharp, but mostly blunt. So, sharpen the edge of the coin on a piece of sandpaper. Get hardened steel screwdriver or very sharp, pointed end file and scrape that indention (groove) to make sure the channel have straight sides, forming I_I shaped groove, but not V shaped groove. When done, insert the sharpened coin and unscrew the battery cover using some pressure as well.
2) In case if the groove is stripped completely, you will have to drill two small holes into the battery cover. Drill them 1mm from the battery cover's edge on opposite sides. Depth of holes should be 0.5 mm. Do not drill through completely. For drilling use 0.3-0.5 mm diameter drill bit.
When finished with both holes, take hardened tweezers, insert each arm into separate hole and unscrew the battery cover.

I' advise to start with battery check. If the battery is ok, then you will need a professional to find the cause of malfunction.
