Question about Polar F6 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Two problems with my Polar F6: 1. There is some fade on in the bottom right of my watch. That occured before my battery was replaced. 2. After my battery was replaced the heart rate has been off by 30-60 beats, depending on how fast my heart is beating. Is this a symptom of a wrong battery? Put in improperly? Something else? Thank you. Paul

Yes, it is a problem with the installation of the battery. If you did not send the watch into an authorized service center then you should do so this time. It is very easy to damage the circuit boards in the watch if not done properly, plus there is a service warranty when going through the service centers. The fade was most likely from the battery dying, but could also have been from a degraded seal and moisture issues.

I had the same problem. So I will try to guide you by button push method (because I didn't understand anything in Dutch that said on the panel). If you look at the polar main wrist watch (easy to say) you will see 5 button. 2 of left and 3 on right. 2 left are top -backlight (21) bottom - back or exit from menu (22). The 3 right buttons are top - scroll up (31), middle - menu (32) and bottom -scroll down (33). Now we know the button number here we go.

Hold 22 for 3 sec. You will see current time showing up. Press 33 once -- Setting ---> press 32 once ---> watch time and date ---> press 33 three time ----> general setting shows up ----> press 32 once ----> button sound shows up ---> press 33 twice ---> language shows up --->press 32 once ----> language blinks ----> press 33 or 31 till you see english or your language of choice ---->press 32 once ----> language is set ---->press 22 for 3 sec and you are back to the watch menu. Hope that helps. This will guide you even if you don't understand anything from the language.

Watch stopped working, replaced battery still doesn't work?


The only solution is too send into a Polar Authorized Service Center. Regular watch shops are not equipped to diagnose and/ or fix problems with Polar watches, or most other Heart Rate watches for that matter.

Polar F6. After the new battery installed the display is very weak - allmost invisible. Battery is the same type and new for sure. Othervise it works just fine. Beeb sounds are strong and everything. Just...


I had the same problem, the screen would be sharp when adjusting setttings after battery-replacemnet only to fade as soon as seconds after startup.

In my case the solution was to dissasemble the watch, use a toothpick or whatever to remove dirt from the copperplate lines (three long lines and one short line) that connect the hardware-part of the watch to the screen (the backside of the screen has lines that correspond to that of the copperplate lines on the frontside of the hardware-part).

Hope this helps, it worked out great for me!

The screen is fading


I think that the battery needs replacing.

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving in doing it yourself.
