Question about Polar FS1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor Watch
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.

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.

Yes, your watch will retain the same water resistance if you will not damage the rubber gasket. After replacing watch battery, clean that rubber gasket with lighter fluid(ZIPPO), place back in watch exactly as it was before and reassemble the casing.
If there are screws on caseback, do not overtighten them. At the same time do not leave them too loose.
Memorize how much power you needed to unscrew them and use the same to screw them back.
I'm recommending ZIPPO, because it would be difficult for you to get special cleaner and grease for gasket.
After cleaning the gasket with ZIPPO, rub a little bit of vaseline in to your fingertips and slide the gasket through them. That will do a good lubrication.
Don't forget to rate, please.

I got mine to start working by turning it on/off. This is done by pressing the top right, bottom right, and bottom left buttons for 5 seconds.
