My Polar HR monitor ce0537 do not pickup Hart rate
I purchased F6 CE0537 (with chest strap N2965) one year ago. Worked well about 8 months. Then it started not showing hart rate. I changed the battery still it is not functioning properly. Sometime it will show hart rate only few minutes and goes off. Inly it shows time. That's all it shows. I paid about $120.00 for this. I appriciate your advice. Thanks.

I suggest the first thing to try is to replace the battery.
It uses a DL2025 or a CR2025. Your battery should measure 3 volts, and should be constant. Some batteries will hold some charge, appear OK, but have no power and the voltage drops very quickly.
Check the replacement procedure for the battery. Check the battery flat metal holding strap is clean and in place correctly.
Make sure you can reset the time as this will indicate the heart rate monitor is working
Look in my tips and tricks page for the most common issues regarding Heart Rate transmission, if none of these fix it, then you "may" have an issue with the equipment itself. Generally the most common issues area:
Strap not on correctly (too loose, too low, upside down, not enough wetness to conduct) Environmental factors (signal interference, etc)
If you go to my Tips and Tricks page, there is a link to the manuals for all Polar watches, including the S725.
To reset anything you need to access SETTINGS. On the S-Series watches push either the top right or bottom right buttons until you see the screen that says settings. Then push the red button to choose. use the right buttons again to scroll to the area you want to set. Keep repeating for every function you want to change.
As an alternative, the S725 connects to software that would have come with your watch, if you are connected to the computer through this software you can reset settings from the software and import them to your watch. The specifics of this are in the user manual.
You should have someone who is use to servicing heart rate monitors take a look at it. There are parts in the monitor that can corrode and would need to be cleaned. Also, look into replacing the battery in both units (Strap and wrist) and make sure the unit is reset properly.
You do not have the right model number. For some reason, Polar puts the CE0537 in big numbers on the back of the case. The real model number on my unit was in very light engraving right above the words "Polar Electro" on the back of the case. Looks like they have an engraving problem where both the model and serial number are very hard to read. If it helps, my model was S120 and I found the manual quickly on the polar site. The polar site also has the location of model numbers in their FAQ area.
