Question about Polar F11 Heart Rate Monitor

1 Answer

Hi I need to know where two small metal components go for the Polar F11 heart rate monitor. I've taken it apart to fix screen and a small metal plate and spring have become dislodged from the battery casing. I'm confident I can put it back together but just need to know where to place these 2 small components. Thanks.

    One is a small 5mm metal spring. I think this goes in a cylinder shapped hole on the battery casing as it matches with a circular copper shapped part on the board. I think it just needs to make a connection with that part ont he board.

    The other is a horizontal 7mm metal plate. It has a a tiny clip on one side and bends slightly inwards at either ends. I think this attaches on the same side of the battery case as the spring but at the other end (the bottom end). I can see a slot where the clip part could fit into but I can't be sure....

    I have now fixed this and put the watch back together. All appears to be working just fine. My thinking on where the two pieces go was correct. The spring was easy but the plate just needed some fiddling around to get it to fit correctly. But a good result in the the end. If anyone ever finds themself in this position and wants help based on my experience just let me know.

Instructions to reset a nordictrack cardio track watch

You may have started wearing a Polar F11 Fitness heart rate monitor to help you keep track of your pulse during cardiovascular exercise. The monitor consists of a strap with electrodes that you attach to your chest, which transmit heart rate data to a receiver worn on your wrist like a watch. The wrist unit stores data and settings that you can customize, such as your weight, height and target heart rates. However, you may wish to reset the unit and start over with new settings. You can reset your Polar F11 by following a few easy steps.

    • Press any button to activate the Polar F11 Fitness heart monitor unit.
    • 2 Press all buttons on the Polar F11 Fitness heart monitor simultaneously, except the "Light" button. There are five buttons and the "Light" button is at the top left side of the unit. Continue to hold the buttons until the display fills with digits.
    • 3 Press the "OK" button, which is located on the right side of the unit in the middle of the up and down buttons. The Polar F11 Fitness heart monitor will reset.

    Polar fll, replacing battery, small hooked metal piece fell out, where does it go?

    (My F11 is open right now.)

    It goes in first with the "hook" toward the top of the watch. The hook wraps around the edge of the watch block.

    Polar F11 not responding

    I' advise to start with battery check. If the battery is ok, then you will need a professional to find the cause of malfunction.

    Polar F11 blank display

    Sounds to me as the integrated circuit has been damaged.
    In this case you will not be able to repair it yourself as watchmakers skills needed.

    no it shouldnt be cause the heart rate would be based off your pulse

    im not a heart specialist but ive had my share of heart polups and a faulty valve in my heart
    i was told by my doctor that the heart rate is monitored by bloodpreasure threw the veins pulse so i dont think that the size of the watch would make a difference this is in my opinion based off my own docs words hes the doc what can i say

    but recommend that you speak with your doctor about heart monitor watches they know more indepth about these devices or your local pharmacy

    i hope this helped you out
