My heart rate monitor was working perfectly well and then the next day the screen on the watch was frozen. No indication of low battery etc (battery replaced 3 months ago). The monitor is about 18 months old. Help?

    My heart rate monitor is a Polar FT80 if that helps at all.

Hi dear_patrici,

If the Polar heart rate monitor's screen is frozen and seems like there's no reaction from any of the buttons when pressed you need to reset the wrist unit. To reset, just press all the buttons at the same time for 3-4 seconds. Your settings will be saved except for the time and date.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

    Hi dear_patrici,

    Kindly try once again doing this: pressing four buttons (UP, DOWN, BACK and LIGHT) on your Polar FT80 simultaneously for four seconds. You may also want to try to refresh the system by taking battery out and put it back again. If still this will not work then you might need to do a master reset on your Polar, this means it will be put back on it's default settings. For the process you have to contact their customer support. If you're in the US the number is 1-800-227-1314, from Monday to Friday 8:45 am - 5:15 pm EST.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you for using Fixya.

Polar ce0537 batteries


Hi Garry,
I suggest the first thing to try is to replace the battery.
It uses a DL2025 or a CR2025. Your battery should measure 3 volts, and should be constant. Some batteries will hold some charge, appear OK, but have no power and the voltage drops very quickly.
Check the replacement procedure for the battery. Check the battery flat metal holding strap is clean and in place correctly.
Make sure you can reset the time as this will indicate the heart rate monitor is working

I just put a new battery in the Polar F4 heart rate monitor watch and it does not work. The battery died about 2 years ago and I never replaced it until now. How can I get the heart rate monitor working...


This is a common issue. The Polars and other Heart Rate monitors are not designed to be fixed by the consumers except for very specific models. These only look like watches, they are in fact mini computers and very susceptible to internal damage if not handled properly.

You need to send the unit it to a Polar Authorized Service Center to have fixed properly. There is not reset within the computer, if you had done everything correctly then it would work.

The heart rate function has turned off. So the calorie count won't work. Everything else is working fine. It happened about four days ago. I have lost my owners manual.


Press and hold the reset button, for 5 seconds, while in Time mode. this will reset the heart monitor and the symbol will reappear on the screen.

Heart rate writst watch won't work


Hi,
Here is the manual for your heart rate monitor:
http://www.omronhealthcare.com/img/shop/hr-100c---2003-hr100cinst-rev-a.pdf
The size of your wrist shouldn't matter, because you can actually mount the monitor to a bike handle, so you don't have to be wearing it at all. It's just acting as a receiver, displaying the info. Are you wearing the transmitter belt, is it positioned correctly, and tight enough? Are you putting water or gel on the backside of the transmitter so that you get good conduction and contact? Is the transmitter belt within 20 inches of the monitor receiver display?
The transmitter battery might be low. If so, the symptom would be that your readings can be erratic. I know you said that you just bought it, but batteries can be low in new products. ..How many times have you bought a new digital watch only to find that it had a low battery...You can replace the battery in the transmitter with a lithium 3v battery #CR2032. Do you see a low battery indicator? If so, the display (receiver) battery also needs replacing and it uses the same battery as the transmitter.
Hope it helps, please let me know.
Thanks

"LoBATT" stays on in TIME mode (doesn't flash) ?


"lobatt" display is the watch battery. The foot pod uses the LED to indicate low battery and the heart rate monitor wont give a reading.

I have a mio euorfit heart monitor watch. During my workout I


Yes, you definetely need battery replacement.
As the hart rate monitoring is most sophisticated part of the device, it has more IC (Integrated Circuits) than any other features.
More IC's means more power is needed, so, if the heart rate monitor is starting to malfunction, that's the very first sign of underpowered battery.
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement.

Do not forget to rate, please.
