Question about Polar A5 Wrist Watch
I had the battery changed in this secondhand Polar A5 HRM. Since then it will suddenly stop working - blank face or there is gibberish on the LED. If I push START button and time (wrong time) appears - If I press START again, the time flashes and has to be reset...I then have to program in all my personal details again: DOB, weight, limits etc. A real pain in the neck, especially in the middle of a race! I'm wondering if the battery connection is loose - how could I fix that?

Battry must go - (minus) into the movement and +(plus) facing up. As battery replacement must be done with watch upside down, you must see the +(plus) on battery when it is inserted into the movement and the fit the contact over it.
Do not forget to rate, please.

"Gunk" is definately not good in any watch. If it got in there because your watch is not properly sealed then you would need to clean it out and get it properly sealed up again. Proper lubrication is necessary, but "gunk" should not be in there.

The Polar S-410 uses the same watch band as all the other S-Series bands so you can replace with any of them. S120, S150, S210, S410, S520, S625, S725. S810 all work fine.
To get the exact replacement you can contact one of the Polar Authorized Service Centers, and they can send one to you, I seem to remember they are under $15-.
You can also change the watch band style entirely and go with a Velcro style sports band, they are readily available at stores like REI and other sports/ mountain type shops. Take your watch with you to match the width of the original band at the head.
