Question about Polar Electro RS800CX Wrist Watch

Open Question

I ahve just bought a polar RS800CX and it does not pick up the wearlink chest strap. I tried running with the ******** for a while after I wet it thoroughly and made sure it was tight enough (I have previously owned the S625x). The unit eventually found the wearlink and I went through the teach function. The unit only sporadically finds a heart rate and always shows "check wearlink" when I try starting a training program. I am quite frustrated as this is a brand new unit!!

Can you change the battery in the chest strap for polar f6


There are two types of straps for Polar:

1) hard rubber/ solid - These can not have the battery changed.

2) soft strap with connector in middle - these you can change the battery.

If you have the soft strap, it will have a small hard around 3 inch long block that "snaps" onto the strap to connect it. These have a battery compartment. Turn it around and you will see the outline for the battery compartment. These are not always easy to open, and the batteries are a little harder to find. Take it into any watch repair and they should be able to pop a new battery in for you pretty easy.

There is a link on my tips and tricks page to get manuals for Polar products, the T-31 wearlink is the product we are talking about, it has the how to change the battery and battery type.

Reset button has no impact on S120 - no functions available other than time of day


The S120 is now a fairly old watch. When the function buttons and heart rate cease to function this is generally an indicator that the battery needs to be replaced. The buttons themselves can also become worn out or weak of function, in either case you have a couple of options.

1) send in to a Polar Authorized Service center: This is very important, do not take to a normal watch shop. You need the watch properly resealed and handled correctly as well as you may need parts such as a button return spring they will not have. Plus there is a 90day warranty on Polar's repair. You will also need to send in your chest strap just to make sure that is still functioning properly. Battery repair about $15-, new buttons another $10ish, and a chest strap if needs replacing about $25 or $30-. $50-$60 total if everything needs work, but this is just an estimate.

2) buy a new watch unit. The RS100 (the current replacement) is about $100- and is easier to use with a better chest strap.

Changed the battery and now it won't pick up the heart rate monitor. I know the monitor works because it is picked up by all the equipment in the gym.


If Heart Rate is being displayed on the equipment in the gym, but not your watch, then your chest strap is transmitting fine, but the watch is not recieving the signal.

It is not uncommon that when a battery is changed outside of a polar authorized service center that something can happen to the internal electronics. I would suggest you send the watch into Polar and have them take a look. if you have had the watch less than 2 years they will most likely take it under warranty and correct the issue, at the very least they have equipment to test and diagnose both the watch and strap, although it sounds like your HR strap is fine since you are getting HR on the machines.

Hello
All you need to do is to try and get to a watch store and locate the type of wrist watch you need and go for it.Better still you could check it online before going to the store.

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.

Nike Triax CV10 - Successful HRM reset 7 November 2008
 
I had real problems too. Even after repeatedly following the known reset steps everyone else is posting up. Here’s how I got mine going, please forgive the mind bogglingly tedious detail…
 
First make sure you’re using new good quality batteries. I used Maxell’s, bought in 10’s from Hong Kong on ebay – no problem.
 
Second, and this is the ESSENTIAL bit…move right away from the computer and any other electromagnetic sources before carrying out the known reset…
 
Third, follow the known reset steps below, adjusted to what worked for me…
 
If you press all four buttons of your Nike HRM it will reset. Next time you go to "RUN" mode, it will show "HRM LINK" error. You will now need to "hard reset" the unit.
 
Nike made a late change to add a "hard reset" to the chest strap. To re-link (re-initialise) the watch you'll need to open the battery door on the chest strap, and use a paper clip (or the equivalent) to push the small gold button in the battery area. There should be a small sticker in the battery compartment that points to the reset button.
 
The re-initialisation steps for the Nike C10 and CV10 digital HRM's is:
 
(1) reset the watch
(2) open the battery door on the chest strap
(3) move the watch to RUN mode
(4) press the reset button in the chest strap battery area without removing the battery
 
Tip - I agree with the suggestion to use a pin or needle and definitely do it with the battery in the hrm.
Tip – Thumb holds battery to stop it from pinging out, other hand performs jiggle with pin until the link is made (it links straightaway if you jiggle it just right!)
 
(5) replace chest strap battery cover…and smile!
