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

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.

The heart rate function has turned off. So the calorie count won't work. Everything else is working fine. It happened about four days ago. I have lost my owners manual.


Press and hold the reset button, for 5 seconds, while in Time mode. this will reset the heart monitor and the symbol will reappear on the screen.

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.

Calrie count stays at zero


I had the same problem and found that the chest strap wasn't tight enough to get a good reading. If that doesn't work, you might have to send it in to have the battery changed. Search for a Polar authorized service center. It gives you some troubleshooting tips too. Good luck.
