Polar heart rate fix...

Post by lo.. » Tue, 29 Oct 1996 04:00:00


My Polar (Edge model) heart rate monitor has stopped working.
It's the watch part that went blank. I have it for well over two
years, and my questions are;
    Should I go to a local jewelry store and have watchsmith replace
the battery? I only use it "dry" on the oar of my Concept II, so not
concerned about underwater activity....
    If I send it back to Polar, should I also send the "belt" as well
and let them replace both batteries at the same time?
    Now, if some kind sole out there can provide me with address or
telephone number for Polar, I would greatly appreciate it, as well
as answers to my questions.( expected cost?)

   Thanks,
           Lou

Was the display progressively getting dimmer over the previous few weeks?
If so, then it's probably the battery, and should be inexpensive to
replace.

I think the new Polar heart belts have the batteries sealed into the belt,
so you'd have to replace the belt (ie. pay for a new one).
