Question about Heart Rate Monitors

Polar F7 not getting a reading when setting it up

I wet the two areas on the chest strap that I was supposed to. I put it on rightside up. I attached the module rightside up. The watch part is already set up, so I hit OK to go to exercise mode to get the initial heart rate reading and am getting 00. I tried about a dozen times and cannot figure out for the life of me what I am doing wrong! I am putting it around my chest in the correct area. It is tight, so the electrode areas are touching skin. It is wet. The reciever thing is attached. I can't figure it out..... HELP!

Heart rate will not read via transmitter


well it happend to me some month ago. the thing is there is no easy solution. when you stop using you monitor for a long period,the sweat does something to the strap and it stop working. so the way i resolved was nicely cleaning the belt and then dip it in water. After that i wet my chest and i would repeat the process as many times as necessary to make it work.
But the problem go away completely only after my 9th o 10th session on the treadmill

My polar heart rate monitor counts the heart beets for quite a while before it gives me the heart rate as a number it may be up to one hour before it gives me a mumber.


I would go to Polar for a definitive answer but your monitor may not be making a good contact with your body. Therefore the reception of your heart beat is constantly starting over and can't give a reading fast enough. Try adjusting how you wear the monitor and see if it makes a difference. There is a battery in the chest strap also. The new ones have to go to Polar to get replaced unfortunately. That is another possibility.

I bought an ft4 monitor in nov 2010 and when I am exersizing for approximately 20 minutes the monitor loses signal from the transmitter. I can sometimes get a signal back by pressing the transmitter strap...


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)

How do i reset and work my polar t31? I have lost instructions and it is 2 years since I last used it


There is no reset on the T-31 chest straps and transmitters. If the battery is functioning then you simply put it around your chest (make sure the contacts are wet) and turn on the watch. A heart rate signal should appear automatically.

If this doesn't work, I have solutions in my tips and tricks page as well as Manuals for Polar products. The T-31 battery may also be dead, in which case you will need to replace.

The picture you have showing is for a S-Series Speed sensor for the Bike. If this is something you are having a problem with feel free to send me a note related to the problem.

Watch won't read heart rate


It could be the battery on the strap is not good. However just to be sure make sure you are wetting the strap and it is around chest, front should sit right about on the bottom of pectoral or chest, if you are female make sure it is under your sports bra the bra band will be over it. I would start warming up then hit the start button it should work.

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.

I' advise to start with battery check. If the battery is ok, then you will need a professional to find the cause of malfunction.
