    Hi. I have the same problem. I have tried the solution above, pressing the buttons for about 15-20 seconds, but it hasn't worked. Is that long enough? Is there anything else I can do?

    My watch wouldn't respond to anything, after doing that press all the buttons except the light it rebooted and was all good again. Thanks!

  • Anonymous Jul 21, 2008

    I tried the "all the buttons at once except the light" and it worked straight away (and my polar was an F11F)! Many thanks for that suggestion!

  • Anonymous Oct 16, 2008

    I tried press all buttons except the light solution and it reset right away and all I needed to do was enter the basic info and all my history was there!

    Thank you!

    my F11 has just done the same thing, its not responding to the global reboot, possibly because i have the lock on.. hrmm... also been having issues lately picking up my signal and getting some impossible readings, up till now is been fine, its about 18mths old. Not impressed, maybe i will just upgrade

    I have a similar problem with my F6. The normal watch function works, as well as the "diary" accessed with the upper right button.

    I can press and hold "ok" to begin a session, however simply pressing "ok" one time (to access my current heartrate and setup/user options) brings up a blank screen. I just got it back from having the battery replaced. I tried the reboot suggested (holding the three buttons to reset) and it still acts the same. Any suggestions?

Hello,

The reset will always solve the issue. It may have been due to Electromagnetic Interference or Static Electricity.

You can press and hold ALL buttons at the same time for 10-15 seconds. After that, simply reset the time/date. All saved information will be stored.

If you are still having a problem feel free to contact Polar Customer Support @ www.polarusa.com.

Hope this helps.

My polar F11 froze today after over 30 months of continuous use. Many thanks for your suggestion to get it working again.

Push all buttons except for the light button to reset the unit. Then press OK after beep. You'll then need to set time, date, etc. If this isn't clear, check the owners manual and search for "reset" - this just worked for my watch.

To adjust this number use the top button on the right hand side of the watch to increase this limit or lower button on the right hand side to decrese it.

When you have it set where you want it press the center button 1 time to save that setting.

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.
