I have a Timex Ironman Triathlon Monitor. When I connect the HRM, the monitor 'beeps' constantly and altough I receive the heart rate readout, I also get the symbol "lo" flashing in the top right hand corner. I have replaced the battery in the HRM strap and reset the HRM strap too. Neither has fixed the issue. Any suggestion?
To shutoff HR out of range alarm - when selecting the ranges in the HRM Steup mode - press the START/SPLIT button to toggle the alarm on and off. (use the start/stop button on the pro fitness model). page 14 in my manual

RTM. Read the manual. You can always do a google for your watch name make model and manual and you should get a .pdf to download and read it. It is a heart rate monitor so that heart should be on there.
You can go to any timex or watch republic stores.. show your watch, fill up request form.. and the branch will send the form to their head office.. and wait for their call. hope this will help.. this is their customer service nos. 8942035 loc 217 or 219
A HRM is a training tool that helps you do cardiovascular (CV) training correctly, neither too hard, nor too easy. It’s almost like having a personal coach on your wrist! Every HRM comes in two parts: 1. An elasticated chest strap which contains a pair of sensors that detect and transmit your heart rate. 2. A wrist worn receiver that receives the signal from the chest strap and displays your heart rate. The receiver may also have additional functions and display other information depending upon the HRM model chosen. Both the chest strap and receiver are battery operated.
Price is always a consideration when it comes to HRM's. You can easily go to Target and purchase a $40 HRM, but consider the quality. Buying a HRM is an investment and you get what you pay for. You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a high quality HRM, but you do want to make sure that it will last a long time. When buying a HRM go for trusted brands such as Polar, LifeSource, or Mio. Some of the cheaper models won't fit as snugly and may be heavier than higher quality brands.
Here are the things I have noticed that help: - enough moisture between the HR monitor and your chest. Apply water right before your workout to make sure it isn't all dry between the time you put on your monitor and when you actually started your workout. - Make sure the strap is tight enough. Mine gets loose over time and the bouncing of running will give me inaccurate readings until I tighten it up again. You can test if this is the problem by using your hands to press the monitor more tightly against your chest - if that seems to fix the problem that a loose strap could be it. - Use a "conductive gel" instead of water between the monitor and your chest. Conductive gels are pretty cheap.
