Question about Polar M32 Heart Rate Monitor Watch
This is an old post, but I would absolutely not follow Robotek's advice. Polar has service centers all across the globe, If you are located in the US,Polar has 5 authorized service centers scattered accross North America. The link above is NOT one of them. For a complete list, along with instructions <click on this link>

It is a good idea to get a watch repair guy to change it for you. They have the tools and experience to do a good job and they seldom charge more than $15-20 to do it for you. The watch casing generally needs to be cleaned, and often the gasket replaced to maintain water tightness.
If you live in the US, you can get a mail order service done here on the watch for $19 that also includes watertight testing, and the job done by experts that do them everyday. If you are outside the US, get back to me and I will find someone close to you.

This is really easy to do yourself. Get a CR1632 battery, unscrew the four screws on the back (dont tip the watch as there is a small spring in the watch), unclip the metal band holding in the old battery noting the way 'round the battery is in (minus side up), pop in new battery and push clip back down, when re-fitting the back make sure the spring mentioned earlier lines up with the white sticker with a hole in it on the inside of the watch back, screw down the back. After you have re done all your settings you may need to re-aquaint the watch with the strap, to do this put on the watch and strap, set the heart monitoring going, bring the watch up close to the 'Polar' logo on the chest strap until the time is displayed, should now be all set up.

Like most makers, they recommend that you have batteries changed at one of there service centers (to retain the waterproof seal.
Some people have problems when refitting the backs of watches and come onto this site to find out how they can get their watch going again. The cost saving does not seem worth the risk of damaging your watch. If your watch is still under warranty, then it will be invalidated by unauthorised repairs.
To find your near service center, go to Ploar.com and click on "support" and then "service" and "retail finder.

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.

There is a step by step guide in my tips and tricks of things to try with your strap. If none of these work and you are getting a signal from another source then you need to get either a new strap, a new sender or both. If you send the T-31 wearlink into polar they can run a diagnostic and see which is bad and sell you just the piece you need or a whole new chest piece.

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.
