Question about Polar F6 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Polar F6 My heart rate is usually 80 beats per minute and now my monitor is at 50 beats per minute.  At first I thought that it was the battery so I had  the  battery replaced, but my heart rate is definitely not 50 beats per minute. Any suggestions?

    My heart rate is always significantly higher than 50 - usually 90 or so. Suddenly, my beginning heart rate on my F6 is 50. I don't think its the battery.

Hello,

It sounds like most of you have the heart rate set to display in % of max heart rate. Most Polar products have the option of heart rate in BPM(beats per minute) or percentage of max.

If you look at the display during the exercise, you will see a % icon. You can turn it off in by hitting the back button and go down to HR view settings.

Hope this helps.

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...


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 also have "how to" function related info in my tips and tricks page.

I changed the battery in the f6 . I had erratic readings. Now watch seems fine but it wont read heart rate,,,,I get no heart beat at all .


Check out my tips and tricks section for a guide on troubleshooting heart rate readings.

One other possibility if you changed the battery yourself (never recommended) is that some damage or moisture has gotten into your watch and made it impossible for the watch to read heart rate. This is a more common reason than you think and why all manufactures of Heart Rate monitors and other types of watches have you send them in to their authorized service centers.

Polar F4 monitor is reading about 30bpm less than actual


Check that the case back is on the right way. A spring sticking out of the watch mech needs to line up with a hole in the white sticker on the inside of the case back, I think this is the receiver aerial.

Polar f11


no it shouldnt be cause the heart rate would be based off your pulse

im not a heart specialist but ive had my share of heart polups and a faulty valve in my heart
i was told by my doctor that the heart rate is monitored by bloodpreasure threw the veins pulse so i dont think that the size of the watch would make a difference this is in my opinion based off my own docs words hes the doc what can i say

but recommend that you speak with your doctor about heart monitor watches they know more indepth about these devices or your local pharmacy

i hope this helped you out
