Like others have written this is my second FT 4. Happy with the first one. The second has been problems after the first year or so. Changed batteries a couple of time. I hand wash it in the sink after every use and occasionally wash it in the machine tied up in a sock. The display jumps around. This the most consistent thing about it. I use it in town and out in the mountains when mountain biking. Don't think it is outside interference. Best place to use with gym equipment. Last one for me. as a matter of fact I am looking for something that serves my purpose. That works.

Still Using After 5 years!I am still in love with my Polar FT4 after 5 years! I've changed the batteries in the watch and the heart rate monitor strap about twice in this time period and it is still working great and looks like new! I use it during every workout, which is basically every day because I'm an athlete, and I definitely prefer it over my other daily activity monitor because it has the more accurate HR reading due to the chest strap! I also just love wearing the watch around because it is so cute and durable. Thank you Polar for such a great product!

Only good for 2 years, at bestI received this a couple of years ago as a gift and it worked with only a few hiccups the first 1.5 years. Since then, it has been one problem after another. First, the buttons stopped working. After a few days, they started working again, except one (top right), and the action of each button changed. I could still manage to get my workout done until a few months ago when my heart rate randomly stopped registering for minutes at a time until it wouldn't register at all. I replaced the battery and now it only registers very intermittenly so I no longer have an accurate calorie count. Not happy at all, especially since I stayed with Polar over another brand.

Used to Love it but now not so muchI bought this item a couple of years ago. For the first 2 years it worked like a charm, then it started malfunctioning. It wouldn't continually keep track of my heart rate. So I replaced the batteries in the watch and chest piece. Worked for a couple of days then started malfunctioning again. So I bought a new chest strap only worked for a day before it started malfunctioning again. Not really sure what to think now. Not very happy with this product now and irritated.

Extremely Disappointed from
Used to Love it but now having problemsI bought my FT4 about 6 months ago. It worked great for about 3 months and then started giving false readings or no reading at all. thought it was the batteries so I changed them out. Worked great for about 2 months and then started to have the same problems. I use this daily, and the last 3 days I haven't been able to use :( ... I have now purchased new batteries again and am waiting for them to come in mail. If I change them this time and it continues I will probably throw this away and buy from another Brand.
