Question about Watches

1 Answer

Polar f11 wrist watch- at times the watch isn't showing heart rate, it shows 00 at different times through out my workout. I'm having the exact same problem, and without the heart rate, nothing else gets calculated (zone, calories, etc.). Am wondering if it is a battery issue with the chest monitor. I've also read that you shouldn't play with the buttons when the watch is under water -- which I probably have done, since I use it for swimming.

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.

Polar f11


no it shouldnt be cause the heart rate would be based off your pulse

im not a heart specialist but ive had my share of heart polups and a faulty valve in my heart
i was told by my doctor that the heart rate is monitored by bloodpreasure threw the veins pulse so i dont think that the size of the watch would make a difference this is in my opinion based off my own docs words hes the doc what can i say

but recommend that you speak with your doctor about heart monitor watches they know more indepth about these devices or your local pharmacy

i hope this helped you out
