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>

Hi cobbie,

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.

regards
robotek

SOURCE: How to change the battery on a Polar F11 Heart Monitor

Here are instructions (with images included) on how to replace the battery for a Polar F11: http://timlaqua.com/2008/09/how-to-replace-the-battery-in-a-polar-f11-heart-rate-monitor-hrm/

SOURCE: new battery needed and fitted to a Polar heart rate monitor

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.

SOURCE: How do I change the battery in a Polar FS1 Heart

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.

SOURCE: Battery in a Polar F7 heart rate monitor

Hello
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.

SOURCE: I have a Polar F11 Heart Rate Monitor. The watch

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.

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.

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 just put a new battery in the Polar F4 heart rate monitor watch and it does not work. The battery died about 2 years ago and I never replaced it until now. How can I get the heart rate monitor working...


This is a common issue. The Polars and other Heart Rate monitors are not designed to be fixed by the consumers except for very specific models. These only look like watches, they are in fact mini computers and very susceptible to internal damage if not handled properly.

You need to send the unit it to a Polar Authorized Service Center to have fixed properly. There is not reset within the computer, if you had done everything correctly then it would work.

How do you change the battery in the sportline heart rate monitor


I'd not advise to do that, but if you want to do it yourself, follow this: Open the watch case back, undo the battery contacts, memorize battery polarity, memorize all the writings on battery, buy exactly the same one and repeat all actions in reverse.

How do I change the battery?


Someone posted a link on how to change the batter on an F11. If it's not longer under warranty or you just don't want to bother with sending it back and the extra costs, you could follow this: http://timlaqua.com/2008/09/how-to-replace-the-battery-in-a-polar-f11-heart-rate-monitor-hrm/

Hello,

It sounds like most of you have the heart rate set to display in % of max heart rate. Most Polar products have the option of heart rate in BPM(beats per minute) or percentage of max.

If you look at the display during the exercise, you will see a % icon. You can turn it off in by hitting the back button and go down to HR view settings.

Hope this helps.

Chenge the battery


Response to Wasilij: The belt is sealed, so it can be used while swimming. It's not meant to be opened. They replace the whole thing, instead of replacing the battery. So sorry, not going to work.
