Polar F11 ''Scrambled/Smudged'' Display

The display on my Polar F11 HRM is smudgey and barely readable. Some of the graphics look faded and fuzzy. Any idea how to fix this or what has caused the problem.

Worked last night when i took it off. Woke up and it's not very readable.

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.

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.

Want to change time on polar f11 watch


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.

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.
