SOURCE: Timex heart rate monitor does not keep correct BPM. I changed the battery, now the heart rate hovers in the 30' and 40's, never getting to the correct BPM

Make sure the back of the watch is spotless and your skin isn't too dry.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have had my Timex

The heart rate is recorded at these abnormally low levels because the sensor has lost its sensibility. This can be caused by only 2 things:
1 - the battery for the watch is almost dried and its voltage has dropped so low that the sensor can't work no more. You will have to replace the battery. because your watch is a sealed type you should take it to a repair shop: they will know how to open it carefully enough as to not damage the rubber seals.; and if they can't open it without damage they will have replacement rings.
2 - the sensor itself (which basically is just a microphone that listens to the beats) is clogged by dirt. Wash the watch in hot soapy water and look very carefully for cracks in the rubber of the strap - if you find one then the sensor has been permanently damaged by the sweat that seeped in. In that case it's time for a new one.

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.

My watch does not show heart rate


I have a problem solving checklist about getting Heart rate readings in my tips and tricks page that may be helpful.

#1) you have to make sure the strap is across your chest and contacting the skin directly
#2) you have to push the button on the front of your watch to turn it on.

After that it should read automatically, there is no trick to your watch.

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.
