SOURCE: can not change battery on Polar chest strap

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's-Manual-==TVRFM09URXg=.html

I need to replace battery

All you need is to open watch case back, remove the rubber seal and unclip the contact. Take the battery out (memorize polarity: + and -) and buy the same one. Fit new battery in the right way back in watch, fit the contact, place back rubber seal and refit watch case back. Reset the watch. Done.

Chenge the battery

Response to Wasilij: The belt is sealed, so it can be used while swimming. It's not meant to be opened. They replace the whole thing, instead of replacing the battery. So sorry, not going to work.

Changing battery

Hi cobbie,

It is a good idea to get a watch repair guy to change it for you. They have the tools and experience to do a good job and they seldom charge more than $15-20 to do it for you. The watch casing generally needs to be cleaned, and often the gasket replaced to maintain water tightness.

If you live in the US, you can get a mail order service done here on the watch for $19 that also includes watertight testing, and the job done by experts that do them everyday. If you are outside the US, get back to me and I will find someone close to you.

No sound

Make sure the sound is turned on the unit. Press and hold the lower left button for a few seconds and you should see a little Sirus like pic on your watch. If you have that and no sound then you have a problem. Maybe try taking the battery out and reinstalling after a few minutes. If nothing works then your choice would be to send the watch to get repaired or live with it. The heart rate does flash if you are under or over your target rates. Good luck
