Battery replacement in the Polar Wrist Receiver
The estimated average battery life of the Polar Wrist Receiver is 1-2 year(s), depending on model, in normal use (2h/day, 7 days a week). Note that an excessive use of the backlight and the beep signal will shorten the battery life more rapidly.
Refer to your User's Manual for the estimated average battery life of your model. If you have lost or misplaced your manual, it can be downloaded from the manual section.
Do not open the Polar Wrist Receiver yourself. To ensure the water resistance properties and the use of qualified components, the Wrist Receiver battery should be replaced only by a person authorized by Polar. At the same time a full periodic check of the Polar Heart Rate Monitor will be done.
Polar International Warranty does not cover damage or consequential damage caused by service not authorized by Polar.
