Introdução

This guide will show users how to replace the battery in the Polar V800. If the battery appears at the end of its life cycle or has become swollen, then the battery may need to be replaced to keep your Polar V800 sport watch operating as it should.

In this guide, the wrist band of the Polar V800 is removed for a clear view of the back panel. If you find it helpful, you may want to remove the wrist strap. Please reference the Watch Band Replacement guide for removal instructions if you wish to do so. Ensure your Polar V800 sports watch is powered off before continuing.

@jarodlyles Where can I buy those 7.4 mm long screws? I tried to open my V800 and I think I might have ruined the groves on the screw head. Now, the screw driver just rotates and does not screw in. I am thinking of buying new screws to replace the old ones. Please let me know.

I found so many 3.7 V 350 mAH LiPo batteries with a bit different dimensions. I wan’t to buy the right, before try to change it.

Can you please specify the dimensions of the battery? Or, if possible, a direct link to order one (eBay, Amazon, some shop witch delivery to germany)?

Thanks
