The most common reason for not being able to pick up your heart rate on the monior watch is problems with the connection of the belt sensors to your chest. There are 2 sensors on the belt which goes around your chest. These must be very wet in order to pick up your heartbeat. It's best to put a large spit on it, rather than tap water which just runs off. Keep the inside of it turned upwards until you connect it with your chest so the spit can't run off.

Also it's important to have the sensors in the right place. To find where the belt should go place your hand on the centre of your chest. Feel where the ribs end. The belt goes just above that point. If you still don't get a reading try moving the belt slightly up or down. It can take a minute or 2 for the watch to pick up the reading so allow 2 minutes before moving the belt.

Also if you have a very low heart rate, below 40 bpm, this can cause problems as the monitor thinks it's a false reading.

There's no need to sync to the computer first.

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.

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.

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.

How do you turn the heartrate monitor on?


How do I turn the Heart Rate function on and off on my watch? Within the Date and Time screen, if the heart icon is showing, the heart rate function is on. To turn off the heart rate function, simply hold the Reset button until the heart icon goes away.

Timex M515 Heartb Rate Monitor in correct readings


I´m experienced the same problem of incorrect readings after a long time without use. I cleaned the rubber parts of the chest strap with soap and water, than I use some silicone grease or other silicon liquid to keep the rubber hydrated. Make a careful cleaning in the contact area between the rubber and the plastic parts, the fissure in these area use to be full of "sweat dust".
