Care and Maintenance of Your Polar HRM
The following suggestions help in maintaining the water
• Keep your unit clean.
• Wipe off any moisture before putting the unit away.
• Do not store the unit in non-breathable material (i.e.
plastic bag or damp gym bag).
• Do not operate the buttons while under water or when
• Keep your Polar Heart Rate Monitor out of extreme cold

IF THE BATTERY RUNS OUT
• The first sign that the battery may be running down is
when the display fades. This may become apparent when the digits
fade when the backlight is used (certain models).
• We recommend that you send your unit to the Polar Service
Center. The rubber seal that ensures water resistance should be
checked and the unit should be tested for water resistance every
time it is opened.
• Service to your unit by yourself or an unauthorized
service may damage your unit.
• Warranty does not cover damage or consequential damage
caused by service not authorized by Polar.
• Wash and dry your transmitter after use. To maximize the
battery life, do not store your transmitter in a damp environment
or with conductive material such as a wet towel.
• Readjust the elastic strap periodically so that the
transmitter fits firmly around the chest. The elastic strap may
need to be replaced every one to two years.
• Do not stretch or bend the transmitter. This may damage
• Clean the transmitter belt regularly with a mild soap and
water solution. Never use alcohol or any abrasive material such
as steel wool or cleaning chemicals on any part of the HRM.
• If your transmitter does wear out, a new one is available
