Recently changed battery in watch. Now I can't determine why it's not picking up my heart rate. The manual is not clear on how this is supposed to happen.

SOURCE: replace battery in my Pola F11 Heart Rate watch

Yes, your watch will retain the same water resistance if you will not damage the rubber gasket. After replacing watch battery, clean that rubber gasket with lighter fluid(ZIPPO), place back in watch exactly as it was before and reassemble the casing.
If there are screws on caseback, do not overtighten them. At the same time do not leave them too loose.
Memorize how much power you needed to unscrew them and use the same to screw them back.
I'm recommending ZIPPO, because it would be difficult for you to get special cleaner and grease for gasket.
After cleaning the gasket with ZIPPO, rub a little bit of vaseline in to your fingertips and slide the gasket through them. That will do a good lubrication.

SOURCE: I have a Polar F11 Heart Rate Monitor. The watch

There is a step by step guide in my tips and tricks of things to try with your strap. If none of these work and you are getting a signal from another source then you need to get either a new strap, a new sender or both. If you send the T-31 wearlink into polar they can run a diagnostic and see which is bad and sell you just the piece you need or a whole new chest piece.

Changed the battery and now it won't pick up the heart rate monitor. I know the monitor works because it is picked up by all the equipment in the gym.


If Heart Rate is being displayed on the equipment in the gym, but not your watch, then your chest strap is transmitting fine, but the watch is not recieving the signal.

It is not uncommon that when a battery is changed outside of a polar authorized service center that something can happen to the internal electronics. I would suggest you send the watch into Polar and have them take a look. if you have had the watch less than 2 years they will most likely take it under warranty and correct the issue, at the very least they have equipment to test and diagnose both the watch and strap, although it sounds like your HR strap is fine since you are getting HR on the machines.

I changed the battery in the f6 . I had erratic readings. Now watch seems fine but it wont read heart rate,,,,I get no heart beat at all .


Check out my tips and tricks section for a guide on troubleshooting heart rate readings.

One other possibility if you changed the battery yourself (never recommended) is that some damage or moisture has gotten into your watch and made it impossible for the watch to read heart rate. This is a more common reason than you think and why all manufactures of Heart Rate monitors and other types of watches have you send them in to their authorized service centers.

Yes, you definetely need battery replacement.
As the hart rate monitoring is most sophisticated part of the device, it has more IC (Integrated Circuits) than any other features.
More IC's means more power is needed, so, if the heart rate monitor is starting to malfunction, that's the very first sign of underpowered battery.
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement.
