Do you own the optional cadence sensor? If so you can only use it in Biking Mode.

If you own the sensor and are using Biking Mode. Then try a reset and if still no luck. Contact Garmin about getting it repaired.

Good Luck!

Where can I get instruction details for my POD 550 watch?


RCX5 found it surprisingly light and small. It doesn't look like a computer on your wrist like many other GPS watches. Of course that is largely because the bulk of the GPS components and battery are in an arm band.
The armband and separate GPS device seemed like, and became, one extra piece of equipment to worry about.

The watch, heart rate monitor and foot pod all use watch batteries. Battery removal can be difficult, however once the back is removed the batteries are easy to install and replace. The GPS piece is charged with a standard USB cable.

The speed and cadence sensors batteries are not replaceable. These sensors must be purchased again when they wear out

The speed and cadence sensors are attached to a bike with zip ties. I found them easier to install than the Garmin sensor largely because they are separate devices. It was easier to position each of them so that they picked up the magnet from the wheel/pedal separately, rather than trying to align one device to detect both.
Additionally the speed and cadence sensor each have a built in led light that flashes each pass of the magnet.

However, to configure your stride length is tricky at best. The best way to do it is to run a distance using the stride sensor that you know the actual distance of, then change the distance in the history. So let's say you ran 1 mile. The watch believes you ran 1.1 miles. By changing the history to 1 it should adjust the settings so that the next mile you run will record correctly.
Once you have been using the watch for some time you can get into advanced setup. You can add your own sports, or configure the devices, and screens setup with each sport.
You can do this from the watch, but it is easier to do it from the Polar Web Sync software. The software works much like a remote terminal for the watch. You connect to the watch and add or change each sport profile, or change user or device settings.

The walking deck on my Weslo Cadence 975sel slides to the right and causes a loud rubbing noise. How can I correct this problem? Thanks,


Find the allen key that came with the machine. If you don't have it, you will need a 3/16" allen key to adjust the roller.
If the belt is pulling to the right, adjust the right screw by turning it clockwise 1/4 turn with the belt moving. You may need to do this more than once. Between adjustments, watch the belt closely to see how much it moves to the left.
Unless something dramatic has happened to the frame or some other part, the amount of adjustment should not be too great..

I have no speed or trip distance showing, cadence is normally ok. also my watch strap has broken and because it is glued on i cant get it fixed!


Since your Cadence is working then there is a problem with the actual speed/ distance sensor. First make sure that in your settings you have speed turned on. If so then...
1) Your battery may be dead = Replace CS sensor
2) The distance of the sensor and magnet is not set correctly = make sure magnet on spokes and sensor are within 1-2mm of each other.

Polar can fix the strap, you need to send into an authorized service center. They replace the entire strap unit. If you send into Polar to get the strap fixed, then you can send in the sensor unit as well for diagnosis if you want. But if #2 doesn't fix, then it's #1 and they will just tell you to buy a new one anyway.

Cannot get my new cadence(WIND)sensor to work. will aparently teach. Any ideas


No reactions to any buttons:

Reset the training computer by pressing all the buttons simultaneously for two seconds until the display fills with digits. Press any button and set the time and date in Basic Settings after the reset. All other settings are saved. Skip the rest of the settings by pressing and holding STOP.

Polar Cadence Sensor W.I.N.D.

To activate the cadence sensor in your training computer, select Settings > Features > Shoes/bikes > Bike
1/2/3 > On > Cadence > On.
Teach new sensor? is displayed.
• If your sensor is already taught, select No.
• To teach a new sensor, make sure that there are no other cadence sensors nearby (40 m/131 ft) and then select Yes.
After selecting Yes, Start test drive is displayed. Rotate the crank a few times to activate the sensor.
The flashing red light indicates that the sensor is activated. Completed is displayed after the
teaching has been finished. The training computer is now ready to receive cadence data.
To return to time mode, press and hold the STOP button.

Good Luck,
Techjoel

Thermostat at 70, shuts off at 62. stays only 1/2 hour at at time


What LED are you talking about that keeps flashing?

If it's the LED on the controller board in the furnace, they blink with a cadence that you need to watch. There will be a data sheet somewhere on the furnace that will tell you what the cadence (flash cadence) is.

Replay back and I can help you more.
