Summary: When I first got my polar ft4 in March I loved it. It was comfortable and worked like a dream. Then in less than a month the strap battery ran out. I sent it in to be replaced and once I finally got it back it worked fine. Now I have a hard time getting it to continue tracking my heart rate.
Summary: Yesterday I was wearing my clock and it was working normally, after a few minutes the watch turns off. I tried to replace the battery but it is in good condition. What problem may have the watch? I never have hit it. can anyone give me a clue please?
Summary: I am disappointed with the FT4. I purchased this 2.5 years ago, it was my second Polar. I love the simplicity of HR monitors and had great luck with my old Polar F4 for more than 4 years...unfortunately, when the old style chest strap ran out of battery, that was it, can't be replaced.
Summary: Wanting only a monitor that showed my pulse, I bought this one. It worked twice, then became erratic. When it did show my pulse, it wouldn't move. Or it would go from , say, 95 to 140, when I wasn't working that hard.
Summary: The FT4 is one of the most popular Polar watches out there. It's affordable, simple to use, and has all the features you need and none you don't. The quintessential entry-level heart rate monitor.
Summary: This is the second Polar FT4 I have bought and both have broken. I replaced the battery each time (yes, correct battery) and it still will not read my heart rate. I thought it was a fluke the first time so bought another. Mistake. It did the same thing within 6 months. What a waste of money.
Summary: Bought this as a birthday gift to myself and am thrilled with the product. It's comfy and I have worn the belt and watch all day on several occasions to calculate my RMR and how many calories burned while resting. This is priceless info when calculating my caloric and macro intake. :)
