Anyone know anything about HRMs? I have a dud one - need to ascertain what's faulty

Hello everybody!

Could someone help me sort out what bit I might need to return to Polar? I bought an F11 at the end of October last year (i.e. it's still well within warranty) and, after about 4 months (beginning of this year) the connection between the WearLink transmitter and the wrist unit became somewhat erratic (i.e 90% of the time I was clinically dead).  I didn't have much use for it, so I didn't bother with contacting Polar then.

Wanting to do some kind of training again, I called Polar and told them that I'd misplaced the faulty WL on my travels (I think I had it removed from my possession when I was in hospital) and they told me it'd cost £40 for a replacement, which I duly paid and it arrived this morning. I did what you're supposed to do before wearing it (i.e. dampen the two pads containing the electrodes) and strapped it upon me person.

Switched the wrist unit to 'exercise' and nowt. Didn't register a heartrate at all. I took my T-shirt off and held my arm within 3" of the transmitter, still no reading.

It can't be the battery in the wrist unit, or there'd be no display at all, surely...? I have done the obvious and made sure there's no little placcy strip between the battery and the terminal on the WL transmitter.

Y'know if anyone's going to get something dud, or faulty, then it's going to be me!

Cheers folks,

Sarah xxx

    That £40 would have been better spent on your food
