SOURCE: changing battery
It is a good idea to get a watch repair guy to change it for you. They have the tools and experience to do a good job and they seldom charge more than $15-20 to do it for you. The watch casing generally needs to be cleaned, and often the gasket replaced to maintain water tightness.
If you live in the US, you can get a mail order service done here on the watch for $19 that also includes watertight testing, and the job done by experts that do them everyday. If you are outside the US, get back to me and I will find someone close to you.

This is really easy to do yourself. Get a CR1632 battery, unscrew the four screws on the back (dont tip the watch as there is a small spring in the watch), unclip the metal band holding in the old battery noting the way 'round the battery is in (minus side up), pop in new battery and push clip back down, when re-fitting the back make sure the spring mentioned earlier lines up with the white sticker with a hole in it on the inside of the watch back, screw down the back. After you have re done all your settings you may need to re-aquaint the watch with the strap, to do this put on the watch and strap, set the heart monitoring going, bring the watch up close to the 'Polar' logo on the chest strap until the time is displayed, should now be all set up.

Like most makers, they recommend that you have batteries changed at one of there service centers (to retain the waterproof seal.
Some people have problems when refitting the backs of watches and come onto this site to find out how they can get their watch going again. The cost saving does not seem worth the risk of damaging your watch. If your watch is still under warranty, then it will be invalidated by unauthorised repairs.
To find your near service center, go to Ploar.com and click on "support" and then "service" and "retail finder.
