Question about Polar FT7 Heart Rate Monitor

Open Question

How do I reset the display to show actual heart rate while exercising? Currently there is a 2 within a circle on the lower right hand side I adjust the hour for "going back" one hour at the end of day

As I first began using this model C321570137642, I was able to view my ongoing hear rate during exercising time period. Since I needed to adjust the hour of the day for the end of day-light saving time on 11/2/14 I have been unable to see my heart rate in real time. ALSO, the number 2 within a circle appeared in the lower right-hand corner of the display

SOURCE: setting Polar CE0537

You do not have the right model number. For some reason, Polar puts the CE0537 in big numbers on the back of the case. The real model number on my unit was in very light engraving right above the words "Polar Electro" on the back of the case. Looks like they have an engraving problem where both the model and serial number are very hard to read. If it helps, my model was S120 and I found the manual quickly on the polar site. The polar site also has the location of model numbers in their FAQ area.

SOURCE: Watch won't read heart rate

It could be the battery on the strap is not good. However just to be sure make sure you are wetting the strap and it is around chest, front should sit right about on the bottom of pectoral or chest, if you are female make sure it is under your sports bra the bra band will be over it. I would start warming up then hit the start button it should work.

My heart rate monitor does not work when gripping the hand bars.


please follow the steps and fix it. God bless you

1) Make sure the heart rate monitor is under your clothing, against your skin, and as high under the pectoral muscles as is comfortable. Note: If the heart rate monitor does not function when positioned as described, try moving it slightly lower or higher on your chest.

2) Make sure the logo on the sensor is facing forward and is right side up.

3) Use saline solution (saliva or contact lens solution) to wet the two electrode areas on the sensor unit. If the heart rate readings do not appear until you begin perspiring, re-wet the electrode areas.

4) As you walk or run on the treadmill, position yourself near the center of the walking belt. For the console to display heart rate readings

5) The heart rate monitor is designed to work with people who have normal heart rhythms. Heart rate detection problems may be caused by medical conditions such as premature ventricular contractions (pvcs), tachycardia bursts, and arrhythmia.

6) The operation of the heart rate monitor can be affected by magnetic interference caused by high power lines or other sources. If you suspect that magnetic interference may be causing a problem, try relocating the treadmill.

7) If the heart rate monitor still does not function properly, test it by having another person try it.

Is there a heart rate monitor on exercise bikes?


Most of the exercise bikes come in three flavors. Either they have no heart rate monitor at all or a pulse grip heart rate on the mid-level bikes or a wireless heart rate on the top exercise bikes.

    It appears my F6 monitor is not keeping accurant time on calories and heart rate. I like the watch but while checking my sitting heart rate is very low. When checking the heart rate on a blood pressure...


    First you need to understand that the Polar system is a medical grade device and it is calculating calories based on specific information that you have inputed and heart rate data from your heart.

    Most treadmills and other exercise machines use a much simpler counter that is height and weight based to calculate calories and are generally over generous with their numbers.

    Depending on the blood pressure machine you are using, the pulse (not heart rate) is coming through the brachial artery, again not quite as accurate as measuring r-r variance from your heart. There is a ton of literature you can read if you are into the accurateness of the system, but I will sum up with saying that you actual calorie expenditure will be closer on the Polar than on most other devices outside of a hospital. As too the heart rate this is also true, so more likely you are getting inaccurate numbers from the other devices.

    If you want pinpoint accuracy then you will need to use the Polar RS800 or S810 devices that measure and display true R-R.

    change you "HR view" to HR, not HR%. Currently you are seeing your heart rate as percentage of your Max Heart Rate (Max HR) but not by beeps per minute (bmp). Go in to the settings and see HR View.
