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.

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: replace battery in my Pola F11 Heart Rate watch

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.

Trouble with heart rate monitor reading heart rate.


Can't get a heart rate to show on your heart rate monitor? If there are no other issues with the watch, then most likely what you are experiencing is an issue with the Heart Rate Strap.

It is very common for all brands of heart rate monitors to have issues with measurement.

The #1 reason is poor contact with the strap and your skin. - Make sure the contacts are wet and touching the skin with good contact.
#2 reason - Weak battery, may need to replace.
#3 reason - Sensors on strap have salt build up from sweat - Clean the strap and contacts with soap and water, if deep cleaning is neccessary use a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol.
#4 reason - Strap is too low on the body, raise as high on the chest as possible to just under the breasts. Strap too low will cause a weak signal.

If none of these seem to help, then you should contact an authorized repair center or the customer service for your brand, and see about possible repair or exchange/ return.

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.

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.

Inaccurate Measurements of heart rate


Replace the battery. Then make sure that it is placed on the proper artery that it is supposed to be on. If your heart rate was 210 you would be in the hospital with a heart attack. And also the only person I know with a heart rate of 90 when running is Lance Armstrong. Your heart rate should be about 120 to 135 and it will just around in those areas but should never go higher
