Send into Polar, you may have a possible warranty issue, some of the older versions of this model had a glitch that was this exact problem.

www.polarusa.com or www.polar.fi for who to send into your area. This needs to be sent directly to Polar not the authorized service centers.

I have numbers on the screen (and a new battery), but when I press the red button nothing happens


Really the only thing to do is send into a Polar Authorized Service Center. If you did this for your battery replacement then you have a warranty and the service is free. If you used a regular watch place or did it yourself (never recommended) then something could have been damaged inside.

It appears my F6 monitor is not keeping accurant time on calories and heart rate. I like the watch but while checking my sitting heart rate is very low. When checking the heart rate on a blood pressure...


First you need to understand that the Polar system is a medical grade device and it is calculating calories based on specific information that you have inputed and heart rate data from your heart.

Most treadmills and other exercise machines use a much simpler counter that is height and weight based to calculate calories and are generally over generous with their numbers.

Depending on the blood pressure machine you are using, the pulse (not heart rate) is coming through the brachial artery, again not quite as accurate as measuring r-r variance from your heart. There is a ton of literature you can read if you are into the accurateness of the system, but I will sum up with saying that you actual calorie expenditure will be closer on the Polar than on most other devices outside of a hospital. As too the heart rate this is also true, so more likely you are getting inaccurate numbers from the other devices.

If you want pinpoint accuracy then you will need to use the Polar RS800 or S810 devices that measure and display true R-R.

During a workout my watch stopped working it appears to be frozen and will not do anything


NO, don't open the back cover you will break the water seal.

Reset the wrist unit. Resetting clears the date and time settings.
Press all buttons except the Light button at the same time until the display is filled with digits. Press OK.

If this does not work, have the batteries checked.

Strange symbol


The same thing happened to me, and here is what I found in an online user manual (but not the one delivered with my watch). Switching the Backlight On
Press the Light button and the display is illuminated for a few seconds.
After you have illuminated the display once while exercising night mode symbol (MY WORDS HERE : the "eye symbol") appears in the display. The display automatically illuminates each time you press any button or bring the wrist unit near the Polar logo on the transmitter, until you stop recording the exercise.

Frozen Display


Hello,

The reset will always solve the issue. It may have been due to Electromagnetic Interference or Static Electricity.

You can press and hold ALL buttons at the same time for 10-15 seconds. After that, simply reset the time/date. All saved information will be stored.

If you are still having a problem feel free to contact Polar Customer Support @ www.polarusa.com.

Hope this helps.
