Hi,
Without knowing how hard you have exercised (heart rate) it wont be able to calculate how many calories you have burned.

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.

How do I reset the chronograph? Once I start it I can't find a way to reset it.


In heart rate mode, click reset to go to Calorie burned mode. In that mode press and HOLD reset button and this should reset all lap,calorie data. etc

OK.heart rate doesn't work right and the calorie burn is off too. Also, how can I set it for my body type so it can read the right calorie burn....the manual doesn't say. NOT HAPPY with this poduct!


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
This is a rather complex watch and the best person to contact on this one is going to be Timex themselves. Sorry.

I have the timex fitness trainer and it is calculating my calories for a man and I need it calculated for a woman. Help!


Simple! men and women burn calories at the same rate. And the more muscle you have the more calories you will burn to conduct an excersize. And the more fat you have, the more calories you will burn from fat.

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.
