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!

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.

The speed (and worst of all distance) was droppping out now and then also the heart rate would hit 200 when rolling down hill. I think I have fixed this problem by leaving the phone at home. I've ridden...


2 Seperate issues:

Heart Rate - The CS200cad uses a coded transmission for the HR, When you have a HR that spikes that high, it is because for some reason the signal has not coded correctly. Here are a number of ways to help with that issue.
1. Make sure you have good contact between your chest strap and your skin.
2. Make sure the Heart rate sensors on the strap are wet. Or use a conductive cream to improve contact.
3. Make sure the strap is on correctly. Up high on the chest just under breasts, Polar symbol centered on chest and upright. Strap tight enough to keep from slipping
4. If the strap is older, make sure it is clean. Salt can build up in the strap.
5. If the strap is over 2 years old consider replacing.
6. Check Battery

For the Speed/ Distance - Same sensor (front) make sure that the magnet on the wheel is within 1-2mm of the Fork sensor. The magnet should align in the middle of the sensor, with the sensor just slightly angled into the magnet. When the magnet and sensor have a good signal a small red light will flash and you may hear a click when the wheel is rotated. If none of this works you have a low battery and will need to replace that front sensor.

How do I enable my EFX 544 to give my heart rate while wearing my polar heart rate chest strap?


If the EFX 544 has polar Heart Rate attach to the upper electronics your chest strap should be transmitting and the unit should be receiving. If your chest strap is more than 3 yrs old usually the battery will die and needs to be replaced or you have a defective receiver and will have to be replaced

New battery needed and fitted to a Polar heart rate monitor


This is really easy to do yourself. Get a CR1632 battery, unscrew the four screws on the back (dont tip the watch as there is a small spring in the watch), unclip the metal band holding in the old battery noting the way 'round the battery is in (minus side up), pop in new battery and push clip back down, when re-fitting the back make sure the spring mentioned earlier lines up with the white sticker with a hole in it on the inside of the watch back, screw down the back. After you have re done all your settings you may need to re-aquaint the watch with the strap, to do this put on the watch and strap, set the heart monitoring going, bring the watch up close to the 'Polar' logo on the chest strap until the time is displayed, should now be all set up.

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.

Polar F11 not responding


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

Polar CS 200 chest strap appears to be sending signal to the HRM sporadically, and therefore heart rate displays zero. I changed the battery, but this did not help.


Just read that you need to wash the belt in a washing machine and/or check the snaps for corrosion. My 200sd is doing the same thing so will try this when I get home tonight.
