Question about Polar A5 Wrist Watch

Polar A5 screen goes blank after battery change; must reset

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?

SOURCE: Which way round does the battery go in a Polar FS1

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.

"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.

Polar A5 wrist watch


Have you thought of taking it into a watch specialist.

I would advise you not to accept adresses on this site for your watch to get repaired .

Does it run on a lithium battery ?

Nike Triax CV10 - Successful HRM reset 7 November 2008
 
I had real problems too. Even after repeatedly following the known reset steps everyone else is posting up. Here’s how I got mine going, please forgive the mind bogglingly tedious detail…
 
First make sure you’re using new good quality batteries. I used Maxell’s, bought in 10’s from Hong Kong on ebay – no problem.
 
Second, and this is the ESSENTIAL bit…move right away from the computer and any other electromagnetic sources before carrying out the known reset…
 
Third, follow the known reset steps below, adjusted to what worked for me…
 
If you press all four buttons of your Nike HRM it will reset. Next time you go to "RUN" mode, it will show "HRM LINK" error. You will now need to "hard reset" the unit.
 
Nike made a late change to add a "hard reset" to the chest strap. To re-link (re-initialise) the watch you'll need to open the battery door on the chest strap, and use a paper clip (or the equivalent) to push the small gold button in the battery area. There should be a small sticker in the battery compartment that points to the reset button.
 
The re-initialisation steps for the Nike C10 and CV10 digital HRM's is:
 
(1) reset the watch
(2) open the battery door on the chest strap
(3) move the watch to RUN mode
(4) press the reset button in the chest strap battery area without removing the battery
 
Tip - I agree with the suggestion to use a pin or needle and definitely do it with the battery in the hrm.
Tip – Thumb holds battery to stop it from pinging out, other hand performs jiggle with pin until the link is made (it links straightaway if you jiggle it just right!)
 
(5) replace chest strap battery cover…and smile!
