The case back has to go on the right way 'round. There is a white bit on the inside of the case back with a hole in it, this hole has to line up with a spring which is poking upwards out of the watch mechanism, i think the white thing is the aerial to the chest strap.

    Also try while wearing watch and strap, start heart monitoring and bring watch to the 'Polar' logo on the chest strap until time shows, this should re-register the watch with the strap.

Getting heart rate on mio petite


Is your heart working? Sorry, bad joke. The only thing besides the watch malfunctioning is that you need to have your hand and arm relaxed when you touch the watch case. Apparently if your muscles are tense it can cause the monitor to not read.

Tip

Trouble with heart rate monitor reading heart rate.


Can't get a heart rate to show on your heart rate monitor? If there are no other issues with the watch, then most likely what you are experiencing is an issue with the Heart Rate Strap.

It is very common for all brands of heart rate monitors to have issues with measurement.

The #1 reason is poor contact with the strap and your skin. - Make sure the contacts are wet and touching the skin with good contact.
#2 reason - Weak battery, may need to replace.
#3 reason - Sensors on strap have salt build up from sweat - Clean the strap and contacts with soap and water, if deep cleaning is neccessary use a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol.
#4 reason - Strap is too low on the body, raise as high on the chest as possible to just under the breasts. Strap too low will cause a weak signal.

If none of these seem to help, then you should contact an authorized repair center or the customer service for your brand, and see about possible repair or exchange/ return.

I changed the battery in the f6 . I had erratic readings. Now watch seems fine but it wont read heart rate,,,,I get no heart beat at all .


Check out my tips and tricks section for a guide on troubleshooting heart rate readings.

One other possibility if you changed the battery yourself (never recommended) is that some damage or moisture has gotten into your watch and made it impossible for the watch to read heart rate. This is a more common reason than you think and why all manufactures of Heart Rate monitors and other types of watches have you send them in to their authorized service centers.

Battery in a Polar F7 heart rate monitor


Hello
You can change the battery in your polar f7 if the battery is worn out.
1. Insert the tip of a pen knife into the lifting point and lifting the back up. The back of the watch is only pressed into place and will come off easily this way.
2. Grab the small clip that is extending across the surface of the battery with a pair of tweezers. Slide the tweezers toward the end that hooks down into the watch. Pull the hook end of the clip out of the watch and remove the clip from the battery

3. Match the old battery with a new one at any electronic store. The store will be able to read the writing imprinted on the battery to make sure that you get the correct battery type for your heart monitor.

4. Press the new battery into the watch making sure that the writing on the battery is facing up.

5. Press the holding clip back into place. Handle the clip with tweezers only, since it is very thin and can be bent or lost easily. Once it is in place, press the back of the watch on.
GOODLUCK

I have a mio euorfit heart monitor watch. During my workout I


Yes, you definetely need battery replacement.
As the hart rate monitoring is most sophisticated part of the device, it has more IC (Integrated Circuits) than any other features.
More IC's means more power is needed, so, if the heart rate monitor is starting to malfunction, that's the very first sign of underpowered battery.
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement.

Do not forget to rate, please.

Timex M515 Heartb Rate Monitor in correct readings


I´m experienced the same problem of incorrect readings after a long time without use. I cleaned the rubber parts of the chest strap with soap and water, than I use some silicone grease or other silicon liquid to keep the rubber hydrated. Make a careful cleaning in the contact area between the rubber and the plastic parts, the fissure in these area use to be full of "sweat dust".

Chenge the battery


Response to Wasilij: The belt is sealed, so it can be used while swimming. It's not meant to be opened. They replace the whole thing, instead of replacing the battery. So sorry, not going to work.
