Maybe there was a production fault with the first batch of the M400? I read you were also one of the first consumers to have the M400, me too (see above).
Did you already send a mail to Polar? Watch is waterproof, the oxidation is not normal.
This was the serialnumber of my first, broken M400 (you never know): C4400Y0608651
@Polar Flowlink: I would love to see support for exporting workouts to Facebook or Strava (without downloading and uploading training)
They are requesting any units like this to be sent back for study. I decided to bypass Polar altogether with this issue and returned mine to the original retailer. I haven't had the best luck with Polar customer service in the past. It has been very difficult to get them to honor warranty work on any of my previous units and I've had to go through my friend and her bosses to take care of my other products. I've had a FT4, a FT60 and my daughter has a FT60. My FT4 went back to Amazon almost a year later because Polar could not resolve my issue after multiple attempts. Thankfully Amazon honored my return because of this. I'm currently trying to get them to fix a problem with my FT60 that I purchased back in June '14, but when I call Polar customer service I get a call center with individuals that are reading from a script, wanting to charge me to fix my warrantied units. Some have gone so far to try to put the blame on me for the problems with the units. The most common thing they like to blame users for (I've heard this on multiple occasions from different representatives) is using a battery not purchased at the Polar shop or users changing the battery themselves. They like to say the user must not have sealed the door properly on the back causing elements to get inside the watch and cause problems...I've heard it all, almost like this is a common scripted response. It's just not worth it for me to try to deal with their warranty department. I recently found if I choose the option for technical support, I get the New York office and those individuals have been very helpful so far.
So far my new M400 continues to work without issue. I did lose signal during training yesterday for the first time ever with this watch. I couldn't get it to connect for the life of me, but later that day it connected and recorded my training session without a problem. The USB port looks nice and clean still. I do really love this watch and it's features, but I just wish it was easier to deal with Polar customer service.
Also Polar introduced Polar Flow Coach:
Polar Flow for Coach is designed for personal trainers and coaches to conveniently connect with their clients and monitor their progress and results. Polar Flow for Coach is an online service that uses data tracked by the client’s Polar Flow compatible training device or activity tracker. With this information coach can follow their client’s progress and see if the training plan requires adaptation or if it is the client who needs some extra boost or additional guidance. Registering a Polar Flow for Coach account is completely free of charge!
What is the battery life and maximum memory time in training mode with GPS turned off?
GPS battery life should be sufficient for training at around 8 hours but not for ultra races.
Can I use the M400 for just recording time during an ultra event (30+ hours)?

Will try again and attempt to turn off at the right time to see what happens.
