5. TARGET HEART RATE ZONE
Your target heart rate zone is a range between the lower and upper
heart rate limits expressed as beats per minute (bpm) or as
percentages of your maximum heart rate (HRmax). HRmax = The
highest number of heartbeats per minute during maximum
physical exertion.
To find your maximum heart rate, you can use the age formula,
HRmax = 220 - age. For a more accurate measurement of your
HRmax visit your doctor or exercise physiologist for an exercise
stress test.
Target Heart Rate Intensity Zones
When your heart beats at 60-70% of your HRmax, you are in the
Light Intensity Zone. This intensity still feels fairly easy for most
people. It helps in weight control and improves endurance and
cardiovascular (aerobic) fitness.
Push on to 70-80% of your HRmax, and you are in the Moderate
Intensity Zone. This is especially good for people who are exercising
regularly. Exercising in this zone is particularly effective for
improving cardiovascular fitness.
At 80-90% of your HRmax, you have moved into the Hard Intensity
Zone. You will find yourself breathing heavily, having tired
muscles and feeling fatigued. This intensity is recommended
occasionally for fit people.
The table below contains target heart rate intensity zones in
beats per minute (bpm) estimated by age in 5-year intervals.
Calculate your own HRmax, write down your own target heart rate
zones and select the ones suitable for your exercise.

6. CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your Polar heart rate monitor is a high-tech instrument and
should be treated with care. The suggestions below will help
you fulfill the guarantee obligations and enjoy the product for
many years to come.
Taking Care of Your Polar Heart Rate Monitor
• Clean the transmitter regularly after use with a mild soap
and water solution. Dry it carefully with a soft towel.
• Never store the transmitter wet. Sweat and moisture can
keep its electrodes wet and the transmitter activated,
which shortens the battery lifespan.
• Store your heart rate monitor in a cool and dry place.
Do not store it in any kind of non-breathing material,
such as a plastic bag or a sports bag if it is wet.
• Do not bend or stretch the transmitter. This may damage
the electrodes.
• Do not dry the transmitter in any other way than with a
towel. Mishandling may damage the electrodes.
• Keep your heart rate monitor out of extreme cold and heat.
The operating temperature is 14 ˚F to 122 ˚F /
-10 ˚C to +50 ˚C.
• Do not expose the heart rate monitor to direct sunlight for
extended periods, such as by leaving it in a car.
32
ENGLISH
Transmitter Batteries
The estimated average battery lifespan of the transmitter is
2500 hours of use. Contact your authorized Polar Service Center
for a replacement transmitter. See your Customer Care and
Registration Card for detailed instructions.
Receiver Batteries
The estimated average battery lifespan of the wrist unit is
2 years of normal use (2h/day, 7 days a week). Do not open
the wrist unit yourself. To ensure the water resistance
properties and the use of authorized components, the wrist unit
battery should be replaced by an authorized Polar Service
Center only. At the same time a full periodic check of the Polar
heart rate monitor will be done.
Service
Should your Polar heart rate monitor need service, see your
Customer Care and Registration Card to contact an authorized
Polar Service Center. Water resistance cannot be guaranteed
after unauthorized service.
7. PRECAUTIONS
7.1 POLAR HEART RATE MONITOR AND INTERFERENCE
Crosstalk
Interference may occur near high voltage power lines, traffic
lights, overhead lines of electric railways, electric bus lines or
trams, televisions, car motors, bike computers, some motor
driven exercise equipment, cellular phones or when you walk
through electric security gates.
Using Your Polar Heart Rate Monitor in Water
Electromagnetic Interference
Exercise Equipment
Several pieces of exercise equipment with electronic or electrical
components such as LED displays, motors, and electric brakes
may cause interference with stray signals. To try to solve the
problem, relocate your wrist unit as follows:
1. Remove the transmitter from your chest and use the exercise
equipment as you would normally.
2. Move the wrist unit around until you find an area where it
displays no stray reading or the heart symbol does not flash.
Interference is often worst right in front of the display panel
of the equipment, while the left or right side of the display is
relatively free of interference.
3. Put the transmitter back on your chest and keep your wrist
unit in this interference-free area as far as it is possible.
Note: If the Polar heart rate monitor still does not work with the
exercise equipment, this piece of equipment may be electrically too
noisy for wireless heart rate measurement.
The F1, F2 and F3 wrist units are non-coded and pick up
transmitter signals within 3 feet/1 meter. Other non-coded
signals, picked up simultaneously from more than one
transmitter, can cause incorrect readouts.
Your Polar heart rate monitor is water resistant to
100 feet/30 meters. To maintain the water resistance, do not
press the side button of the wrist unit under water.
Users measuring their heart rate in water may experience
interference for the following reasons:
• Pool water with a high chlorine content and seawater are
very conductive. The electrodes of a Polar transmitter may
short circuit, which prevents the transmitter unit from
detecting ECG signals.
• Jumping into water or strenuous muscle movement during
competitive swimming may cause water resistance that
shifts the transmitter on the body to a location where it is
not possible to pick up an ECG signal.
• ECG signal strength is individual and also varies
depending on an individual's tissue composition.
The percentage of people who have problems measuring
their heart rate is considerably higher in water than in
other environments.
ENGLISH
33
7.2 MINIMIZING POSSIBLE RISKS WHEN EXERCISING
WITH YOUR HEART RATE MONITOR
Exercise may include some risk, especially for those who have
been sedentary. Before starting a regular exercise program, it is
recommended that you answer the following questions about
your health status. If your answer yes to any of the questions
below, we recommend that you consult a doctor before starting
an exercise program.
• Have you not exercised for the past 5 years?
• Do you have high blood pressure?
• Do you have high blood cholesterol?
• Do you have symptoms of any disease?
• Are you taking any blood pressure or heart medication?
• Do you have a history of breathing problems?
• Are you recovering from a serious illness or medical
treatment?
• Do you use a pacemaker or another implanted electronic
device?
• Do you smoke?
• Are you pregnant?
Note that in addition to exercise intensity, medications for heart
problems, blood pressure, psychiatric conditions, asthma,
breathing etc. as well as some energy drinks, alcohol, and
nicotine can affect heart rate.
34
ENGLISH
It is important to be sensitive to your body’s reactions during
exercise. If you feel unexpected pain or excessive fatigue when
exercising, it is recommended that you stop the exercise or
continue at a lighter intensity.
Notice to persons with pacemakers, defibrillators or other
implanted electronic devices. Individuals who have a
pacemaker use the Polar heart rate monitor at their own risk.
Before use, we always recommend an exercise test under a
doctor’s supervision. The test is to ensure the safety and
reliability of the simultaneous use of the pacemaker and the
heart rate monitor.
If you are allergic to any substance that comes into contact
with your skin or if you suspect an allergic reaction due to
using the product, check the listed materials in the Technical
Specifications chapter on page 35. To avoid any skin reaction
risk with the transmitter, wear it over a shirt. However, moisten
the shirt well under the electrodes to ensure flawless operation.
Note: The combined impact of moisture and intense abrasion may cause
a black color to rub off the transmitter’s surface, which might stain
light-colored clothes.
