Question about Polar F11 Heart Rate Monitor

1 Answer

I changed my wife's Polar F11 HRM watch battery. When I replaced the battery the entire screen lit up, everything. I let it sit for a few minutes and the normal screen came up. Kind of like it was "booting up". The only problem was that the screen is distorted and the watch is hard to read. Any ideas?

Try resetting. From the manual, "if there are no reactions to any buttons, reset the wrist unit by pressing all the buttons simultaneously for two seconds. All other settings but time and date are saved."

Is it possible the watch block is not in correctly and the display is getting squished?

    Thanks, managed to brighten up the display with the resetting tip. However, the Polar F11 has not been, in terms of the display, been the watch I had hoped for. The display is still missing bits of the alpha-numeric display.

Polar AXN300 Heart Rate Monitor Watch HRM AXN300 is not showing pulse


I would think it is the sensor circuit in the watch. When you replaced the battery did you activate the processor all reset for the watch? I do not know on your model where or how this would be activated.

Electronic watches normally have a reset procedure for when the battery is changed. Very important the watch's processor reset is performed after changing the battery. This is not any of the user readings reset. This is a reset for the watch's processor and system. It is sometimes a contact that has to be shorted out with the jeweler's screwdriver, or it is a contact that has to be shunted, or etc., depending on the model. Maybe if you call the support for the watch they will tell you this. Normally they do not like the user opening the watch.

I am looking for a Polar S410 HRM watch band because mine has a rip in it.


The Polar S-410 uses the same watch band as all the other S-Series bands so you can replace with any of them. S120, S150, S210, S410, S520, S625, S725. S810 all work fine.

To get the exact replacement you can contact one of the Polar Authorized Service Centers, and they can send one to you, I seem to remember they are under $15-.

You can also change the watch band style entirely and go with a Velcro style sports band, they are readily available at stores like REI and other sports/ mountain type shops. Take your watch with you to match the width of the original band at the head.

What battery is used in the wrist unit of the Polar F11


Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

Polar F11 ''Scrambled/Smudged'' Display


You have to replace the battery with the new one. In most cases underpowered battery causes faded or even disappearing digits on LCD unless your watch has been damaged by water. Find your nearest watch repair shop or do it yourself. Do not forget to rate, please.
