If you visit www.polarusa.com they have guidelines and life expectancies, it is also in your owners manual.

The HR reading can be caused by several issues some environmental some within the watch or strap, please visit my tips and tricks page for a detailed listing as well as if you need a new owners manual.

On the straps for an F11 those have a user replaceable battery, your battery may be the thing that is wearing out, not the whole strap. Try a new battery in the strap (wearlink connector) before buying an entire new strap.

The gels work by providing greater conductivity, yes they work, but you may or may not need it. depends on why you are having a signal issue.

Instructions to reset a nordictrack cardio track watch


You may have started wearing a Polar F11 Fitness heart rate monitor to help you keep track of your pulse during cardiovascular exercise. The monitor consists of a strap with electrodes that you attach to your chest, which transmit heart rate data to a receiver worn on your wrist like a watch. The wrist unit stores data and settings that you can customize, such as your weight, height and target heart rates. However, you may wish to reset the unit and start over with new settings. You can reset your Polar F11 by following a few easy steps.
Instructions:

    • Press any button to activate the Polar F11 Fitness heart monitor unit.
    • 2 Press all buttons on the Polar F11 Fitness heart monitor simultaneously, except the "Light" button. There are five buttons and the "Light" button is at the top left side of the unit. Continue to hold the buttons until the display fills with digits.
    • 3 Press the "OK" button, which is located on the right side of the unit in the middle of the up and down buttons. The Polar F11 Fitness heart monitor will reset.

    There is a step by step guide in my tips and tricks of things to try with your strap. If none of these work and you are getting a signal from another source then you need to get either a new strap, a new sender or both. If you send the T-31 wearlink into polar they can run a diagnostic and see which is bad and sell you just the piece you need or a whole new chest piece.

    My F11 Polar HR monitor is not working correctly


    You should have someone who is use to servicing heart rate monitors take a look at it. There are parts in the monitor that can corrode and would need to be cleaned. Also, look into replacing the battery in both units (Strap and wrist) and make sure the unit is reset properly.

    Hi I have just bought a Sole F85 (2016/2017) treadmill. I was advised it the F85 would work with my Polar H7 and H10 heart rate monitor as these synch with my iPhone and V800 Polar devices H7and H10 are both open source 5kz analogue signal however the F85 does not pick up the signal from the Polar HRM why is this as I was told F85 operates with and can receive a 5kz signal. Polar are leaders in heart rate monitors and all the gym equipment I have used for the past 15 years has been compatible with the Polar Product I am starting to use the Sola Fitnesss application but the F85 Treadmill I have just purchased does not appear in the list for connections there is a blank line which when selected sometimes connect to the F85 via Bluetooth. There appears to be a bug in the software. Also there is connectivity to other apps Fitbit, HealthKit, Mapmyfitness but there is no connectivity to Polar Polar are the leaders in heart rate technology and one of the largest producers of HRM products so when can the Sole Fitness application be developed to include an interface / connectivity with the Polar Flow and Polar Beat applications. Also can the Sole Fitness application be developed so is can use via Bluetooth a Polar heart rate monitor (chest strap)? If Sole Fitness can pick up HRM data from Polars H7 or H10 via Bluetooth then it could be an interface to the F85 Treadmill, is this possible as part of the Some Fitness application development. Also I have noticed that the pulse readout is totally inaccurate as my V800 says 130 bpm and the display on the F85 says 78 Any guidance would be much appreciated
