Yes, your watch will retain the same water resistance if you will not damage the rubber gasket. After replacing watch battery, clean that rubber gasket with lighter fluid(ZIPPO), place back in watch exactly as it was before and reassemble the casing.
If there are screws on caseback, do not overtighten them. At the same time do not leave them too loose.
Memorize how much power you needed to unscrew them and use the same to screw them back.
I'm recommending ZIPPO, because it would be difficult for you to get special cleaner and grease for gasket.
After cleaning the gasket with ZIPPO, rub a little bit of vaseline in to your fingertips and slide the gasket through them. That will do a good lubrication.

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.

Polar fll, replacing battery, small hooked metal piece fell out, where does it go?


(My F11 is open right now.)

It goes in first with the "hook" toward the top of the watch. The hook wraps around the edge of the watch block.

What battery is used in the wrist unit of the Polar F11


Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

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 F11 ''Scrambled/Smudged'' Display


You have to replace the battery with the new one. In most cases underpowered battery causes faded or even disappearing digits on LCD unless your watch has been damaged by water. Find your nearest watch repair shop or do it yourself. Do not forget to rate, please.
