Yes, there are a few.
1) As you may noticed, coin and even screwdriver blades are never sharp, but mostly blunt. So, sharpen the edge of the coin on a piece of sandpaper. Get hardened steel screwdriver or very sharp, pointed end file and scrape that indention (groove) to make sure the channel have straight sides, forming I_I shaped groove, but not V shaped groove. When done, insert the sharpened coin and unscrew the battery cover using some pressure as well.
2) In case if the groove is stripped completely, you will have to drill two small holes into the battery cover. Drill them 1mm from the battery cover's edge on opposite sides. Depth of holes should be 0.5 mm. Do not drill through completely. For drilling use 0.3-0.5 mm diameter drill bit.
When finished with both holes, take hardened tweezers, insert each arm into separate hole and unscrew the battery cover.
Do not forget to rate, please.

I have changed batterys in these watches but i can only describe the process from memory which may be faulty. You may or may not have to remove the strap depending on whether it covers any of the case back. Unscrew all screws on back and remove. I believe these watches have a triangular spring loaded plate over the battery which needs to be slid out to (bit tricky) note which way up battery is. Replace battery 2032 i think replace cover short AC or AR with +ve replace seal,back,screws etc. this is a link to manual for confirmation http://www.devicemanuals.com/guide/Watch%20and%20Clock/Polar/Polar-F4-User's-Manual-==TVRFM09URXg=.html
