>Gears and Wears>Polar FT7 Failing
Miles to Go
My 2 year old FT7 starts ok, but stops after a few minutes. I replaced both batteries and washed the belt, but it still fails. Should I buy a new chest strap (about $15 I think), or should I scrap the whole thing? It is out of warranty.
Last: 7/30 Great Alaskan Running Cruise HM, Juneau
Next: 8/27 Fort2 Base 10NM, Great Lakes, IL
Okay, I'll answer myself. Previously, I held the strap contacts under running water and squeezed the water in a little before a run. So now, I put a little warm water in the sink and let the contacts soak for a few seconds. So far, it is working again. Go Figure ???
Loves the outdoors
My F6 has started having condensation inside after I paid Polar for them to do battery replacement. Since then the light made a I'm dying sound and doesn't work and there are some unusual lines on the display making some numbers hard to read. This is of no help to you whatsoever, but I joining in to have a whine myself. I use mine as my everyday watch so I'm a little miffed.
One day I decided I wanted to become a runner, so I did.
