Polar Watches - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Polar F6 - Battery replaced, display corrupt after watch loads.
I had the same problem and attempted what banjodoug suggested above. It did not help. I had a faint display even before I re-inserted it into my watch frame. I surmised it wasn't the battery position.
I then took apart the damn thing and put it back together several times, each time rushing to push the setting/center button only to derive the same problem over and over.
I then took it apart one more time and pinched in all of the sides of the metal frame that holds it all together, thinking that I had a bad ground. After I did that, I reassembed it and waited. The display came on with the test display and then eventually went to the standard display on its own and all was good to go.
I suspect the issue was solved by correcting an improper ground and a proper initialization process - both solved by the steps I took above.
Hope it works for you!

My watch band is ripted
I don't know this watch in particular, but I know there are two main types of bands. Coded and non-coded. The S120 uses non-coded. That means you can use possibly any band on the market. Bands I know are compatible: Sigma and Ciclosport. The Polar bands are sealed, so you can use them while swimming. That's not true of the other two I mentioned - but the upside is you can replace the battery yourself once it wears down. You can probably get a replacement band from Polar directly, or buy a cheap knockoff elsewhere.

Polar AXN300 Heart Rate Monitor Watch HRM AXN300 is not showing pulse
I would think it is the sensor circuit in the watch. When you replaced the battery did you activate the processor all reset for the watch? I do not know on your model where or how this would be activated.
Electronic watches normally have a reset procedure for when the battery is changed. Very important the watch's processor reset is performed after changing the battery. This is not any of the user readings reset. This is a reset for the watch's processor and system. It is sometimes a contact that has to be shorted out with the jeweler's screwdriver, or it is a contact that has to be shunted, or etc., depending on the model. Maybe if you call the support for the watch they will tell you this. Normally they do not like the user opening the watch.
