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.
Do not forget to rate, please.

The monitor consists of a strap with electrodes that you attach to your chest, which transmit heart rate data to a receiver worn on your wrist like a watch.

You can reset your Polar F11 by following a few easy steps.
Instructions

    • 1 Press any button to activate the Polar F11 Fitness heart monitor unit.
    • 2 Press all buttons on the Polar F11 Fitness heart monitor simultaneously, except the "Light" button. There are five buttons and the "Light" button is at the top left side of the unit. Continue to hold the buttons until the display fills with digits.

    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.

    New battery needed and fitted to a Polar heart rate monitor


    This is really easy to do yourself. Get a CR1632 battery, unscrew the four screws on the back (dont tip the watch as there is a small spring in the watch), unclip the metal band holding in the old battery noting the way 'round the battery is in (minus side up), pop in new battery and push clip back down, when re-fitting the back make sure the spring mentioned earlier lines up with the white sticker with a hole in it on the inside of the watch back, screw down the back. After you have re done all your settings you may need to re-aquaint the watch with the strap, to do this put on the watch and strap, set the heart monitoring going, bring the watch up close to the 'Polar' logo on the chest strap until the time is displayed, should now be all set up.

    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.
