Restarting and resetting

Like with any electronic device, we recommend that you switch off the M600 every now and then.

If you experience problems with your M600, you can try restarting it. Restarting your smartwatch will not delete any of the settings or your personal data from the M600.

To restart the M600

  1. Navigate to the Settings app, and find and tap System.
  2. Tap Restart.
  3. Confirm restarting the watch by tapping the check mark icon.

OR

  • Press and hold down the side power button until the Polar logo appears.

Sometimes restarting your electronic device doesn't do the trick. If you, for example, have trouble re-establishing a lost connection between your M600 and phone, and have first tried our other troubleshooting tips, but still can't get them connected again, you can unpair the M600 from your phone and reset the M600 to factory settings.

Note, that resetting empties all personal data and settings from the M600, and you need to set it up again for your personal use!

To factory reset your M600, you need to unpair the smartwatch from your phone and reset the M600 as instructed below.
