I have a 6 yr old model, never used and now needed. The battery is dead and Polar are not interested, they directed me to another UK site who tried to help but told me that they had no access to the rubber seals in this type of watch due to lack of seals from Polar, my local jeweller will not attempt to replace it either, can you advise re how I can replace this battery
I live near Banbridge in N. Ireland
Step 1: Remove the old battery so you can find a replacement. Somewhere should sell you the battery alone, even if they won't do the replacement for you.
Step 2: If you're not going to use this in a wet environment just put the new battery in and don't worry about the seals. Just be careful when you clean it. For example, use a damp cloth but don't immerse it.
Step 2b: If you really want to seal it get some silicon seal from a hardware store or maybe an outdoor store. Line the edge of the battery compartment where the cover meets the compartment and replace the cover. Let it set and you should be good.

There is no reset on the T-31 chest straps and transmitters. If the battery is functioning then you simply put it around your chest (make sure the contacts are wet) and turn on the watch. A heart rate signal should appear automatically.
If this doesn't work, I have solutions in my tips and tricks page as well as Manuals for Polar products. The T-31 battery may also be dead, in which case you will need to replace.
The picture you have showing is for a S-Series Speed sensor for the Bike. If this is something you are having a problem with feel free to send me a note related to the problem.
Polar doesn't sell replacement bodies. You can only go through a repair center for about $50. I bought a "display only" non-functioning model off of eBay for $10 and the body is the same as a functioning model.
It came with protective plastic over the face that peels off and a dummy display on the inside that peels off too.
The only problem is the display model didn't have a seal/gasket and after removing my old seal it was stretched out and didn't fit. I cut the seal to make it shorter but now it is no longer waterproof.
It is possible the seal can be purchased at one of the Polar service centers.
I suggest removing the seal carefully without stretching it.
The only alarms available to use for that watch is your heart rate for exercise and a daily alarm. Unfortunately it does not have the hourly alarm feature. I wish it did I am a personal trainer and hourly chimes would help to keep me on time but my rs200 doesn't have the feature either. Sorry :)
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.
