I had the same problem and found that the chest strap wasn't tight enough to get a good reading. If that doesn't work, you might have to send it in to have the battery changed. Search for a Polar authorized service center. It gives you some troubleshooting tips too. Good luck.

It appears my F6 monitor is not keeping accurant time on calories and heart rate. I like the watch but while checking my sitting heart rate is very low. When checking the heart rate on a blood pressure...


First you need to understand that the Polar system is a medical grade device and it is calculating calories based on specific information that you have inputed and heart rate data from your heart.

Most treadmills and other exercise machines use a much simpler counter that is height and weight based to calculate calories and are generally over generous with their numbers.

Depending on the blood pressure machine you are using, the pulse (not heart rate) is coming through the brachial artery, again not quite as accurate as measuring r-r variance from your heart. There is a ton of literature you can read if you are into the accurateness of the system, but I will sum up with saying that you actual calorie expenditure will be closer on the Polar than on most other devices outside of a hospital. As too the heart rate this is also true, so more likely you are getting inaccurate numbers from the other devices.

If you want pinpoint accuracy then you will need to use the Polar RS800 or S810 devices that measure and display true R-R.

The heart rate function has turned off. So the calorie count won't work. Everything else is working fine. It happened about four days ago. I have lost my owners manual.


Press and hold the reset button, for 5 seconds, while in Time mode. this will reset the heart monitor and the symbol will reappear on the screen.

Do I have to wear my transmitter to review calories burned?


Hi,
Without knowing how hard you have exercised (heart rate) it wont be able to calculate how many calories you have burned.

My sportline watch resets itself during exercise , and reset everything back to zero even the date goes back to 1-1 always. Everything stops counting, steps, calories, mph, miles walked, everything


I don't know this watch personally but it sounds like it may be a short circuit or maybe one or two of the buttons may be being activated during a particular movement. I'd recommend you take it to a watchmaker for diagnosis.

Viewing Time in Exercise Mode


Bring the watch up close to the chest-strap heartrate monitor, and it will automatically display the time. This only works while in exercise mode.

Strange symbol


The same thing happened to me, and here is what I found in an online user manual (but not the one delivered with my watch). Switching the Backlight On
Press the Light button and the display is illuminated for a few seconds.
After you have illuminated the display once while exercising night mode symbol (MY WORDS HERE : the "eye symbol") appears in the display. The display automatically illuminates each time you press any button or bring the wrist unit near the Polar logo on the transmitter, until you stop recording the exercise.

F6 problems


I just purchased one as well and may be returning it, I don't believe it has a stop watch, which is incredible at this price point as it's a pretty basic feature.
