Re: 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.

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?
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.
1. Hold Back button down for menu. 2. Select "Time" but scrolling down to 2nd page with right bottom button and OK button. 3. Use right buttons and OK button to set. 4. Hold down Back button to return to normal display.
I think the trick is knowing to hold the Back button down to get the initial menu.
