Thank you for contacting FixYa.
I would send to Polar to have them do the battery. The receiver should be tested for water resistance using special equipment after battery replacement. Most watch repair shops do not have the equipment to do that. During the warranty period, it is necessary to service the unit at an authorized service center to keep the warranty valid. Also spare parts may be needed.

The seconds jump


Does the watch have a battery, if it does it is a signal to change battery. Mine jumps 5 seconds at a time when battery low. Not sure if a watch like that has a battery.

How do I get out the battery from a polar ft40? I removed cover but how to get out battery?


This heart rate monitor has a generic flaw with the sensor. The touch sensor fails after a few months of use. It is not a battery issue. Return to where you purchased it. Buy another brand.

Polar ft40 watch doesnt work. I have replaced the battery and nothing happens.


This heart rate monitor has a generic flaw with the sensor. The touch sensor fails after a few months of use. It is not a battery issue. Return to where you purchased it. Buy another brand. All of the drug stores carry this watch which has an abnormal return rate. The sensor fails after a few months while the watch function is fine. Seems like planned obsolescence.

Changed the battery and now it won't pick up the heart rate monitor. I know the monitor works because it is picked up by all the equipment in the gym.


If Heart Rate is being displayed on the equipment in the gym, but not your watch, then your chest strap is transmitting fine, but the watch is not recieving the signal.

It is not uncommon that when a battery is changed outside of a polar authorized service center that something can happen to the internal electronics. I would suggest you send the watch into Polar and have them take a look. if you have had the watch less than 2 years they will most likely take it under warranty and correct the issue, at the very least they have equipment to test and diagnose both the watch and strap, although it sounds like your HR strap is fine since you are getting HR on the machines.

I need to change the batteries and i cant get thhe back off


mcdevito75 here, Croton, a high quality watch, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change, these quartz movements can easily be destroyed with mis-handleing and anyway a battery lasts at least 1 year.
