Question about Polar F11 Heart Rate Monitor

Open Question

My heart rate monitor wristband is about 4 years old. I just bought a new transmitter and chest strap about one year ago. I am noticing that during a workout, the readout on my wristband is showing very low numbers from time to time. Today, it was even showing 0 for quite awhile. Then, it appears to become fairly normal again. This is a new problem. I am wondering if a battery needs to be replaced or if I need another new transmitter..

Had the same problem. Just figured it out. The center Polar Logo on the strap needs to touch your chest in a firm way. Bend it back slightly so it fits snug on the middle of your chest.

You certainly have had good service out of the battery. It is best left to a watch repairer to replace the battery.

Make sure the battery is placed underneath the small copper clip (positive lead) inside, else the circuit isn't complete. It's pretty easy to clothes the battery casing with it above the lead and not even notice it.

Look in my tips and tricks page for the most common issues regarding Heart Rate transmission, if none of these fix it, then you "may" have an issue with the equipment itself. Generally the most common issues area:

Strap not on correctly (too loose, too low, upside down, not enough wetness to conduct)
Environmental factors (signal interference, etc)

How do i reset and work my polar t31? I have lost instructions and it is 2 years since I last used it


There is no reset on the T-31 chest straps and transmitters. If the battery is functioning then you simply put it around your chest (make sure the contacts are wet) and turn on the watch. A heart rate signal should appear automatically.

If this doesn't work, I have solutions in my tips and tricks page as well as Manuals for Polar products. The T-31 battery may also be dead, in which case you will need to replace.

The picture you have showing is for a S-Series Speed sensor for the Bike. If this is something you are having a problem with feel free to send me a note related to the problem.

How old is the unit? Make sure you are wetting the electrodes on the strap and it is snug around your body and in contact with skin just below your chest if female under your sports bra. If that doesn't work the battery in your strap may not be good.

Inaccurate/intermittent heart rate info?


Here are the things I have noticed that help:
- enough moisture between the HR monitor and your chest. Apply water right before your workout to make sure it isn't all dry between the time you put on your monitor and when you actually started your workout.
- Make sure the strap is tight enough. Mine gets loose over time and the bouncing of running will give me inaccurate readings until I tighten it up again. You can test if this is the problem by using your hands to press the monitor more tightly against your chest - if that seems to fix the problem that a loose strap could be it.
- Use a "conductive gel" instead of water between the monitor and your chest. Conductive gels are pretty cheap.
