Rated 2 out of 5 by Maggiebelle Used to love it
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. If I'm running it will work but if I bend over at all it will say check heart rate transmitter, which gets to be pretty annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angiepon my watch stopped working and died :(
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?

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. I went with Polar again...the new chest strap design is bulky and doesn't work as well as the old one piece. Also, the past 1.5 years the FT4 has given me lots of trouble with transmission (I've tried everything) and batteries (both in the chest strap and watch) need more frequent replacement (less than a year). I wish it would work properly and I really do keep having hope. But I am about to give up, as I am taking on regular running again and need a reliable unit. I don't know if I will try Polar again...the 2 piece chest strap sucks. Bring back the old style, please!

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.
