Please follow the steps and fix it. God bless you

1) Make sure the heart rate monitor is under your clothing, against your skin, and as high under the pectoral muscles as is comfortable. Note: If the heart rate monitor does not function when positioned as described, try moving it slightly lower or higher on your chest.

2) Make sure the logo on the sensor is facing forward and is right side up.

3) Use saline solution (saliva or contact lens solution) to wet the two electrode areas on the sensor unit. If the heart rate readings do not appear until you begin perspiring, re-wet the electrode areas.

4) As you walk or run on the treadmill, position yourself near the center of the walking belt. For the console to display heart rate readings

5) The heart rate monitor is designed to work with people who have normal heart rhythms. Heart rate detection problems may be caused by medical conditions such as premature ventricular contractions (pvcs), tachycardia bursts, and arrhythmia.

6) The operation of the heart rate monitor can be affected by magnetic interference caused by high power lines or other sources. If you suspect that magnetic interference may be causing a problem, try relocating the treadmill.

7) If the heart rate monitor still does not function properly, test it by having another person try it.

Check the connection properly. It is turned on or not. If it has got lines, without connection then check for it. Might be this due to some connectivity errors as well. If it isn't working yet, then you can also check for some other equipments like the cardiac defibrillator (d?fibrillateur cardiaque) etc. You may also search on internet regarding this topic.

SOURCE: Does the odor treadmill measure

Are you sure you have the correct brand of Treadmill. Never heard of this one.

Double check your brand and model. IFIT is availalable on several brands and models of treadmills, it is possible that your treadmill only has heart rate grips and also possible it will do both.

Generally a treadmill that will work with a heart rate strap will say so right on the face.

Heart rate Monitor not working on Life Fitness 95Ti Life Pulse


Replacement Parts for Fitness Exercise Equipment at SPORTSMITH

I would suggest removing your heart rate grips and inspecting the contact leads for rust or any other corrosion. This is very commonly an issue and can be resolved by either cleaning the contacts or simply replacing the parts. Using the following link, and your serial number, you should be able to find the contact grips if you end up needing them.

Hyperextension will not start


Good contact with the grip is essential. Before taking pulse, stop walking and step on side rails and place hands on contacts.

Try gripping the handlebar contacts over the top, with your thumb next to your index finger instead of gripping it with your thumb under the handlebars.
Contact heart rate grips are not intended for continuous reading. Rather, try holding the grips for 10-20 seconds at a time for an accurate reading.
Static electricity can damage the heart rate grip receiver and/or grips and cause either an "HR" or no reading at all.


If you have doubt read your owner manual, and in short call to customer service from the manufactury of your treadmill. sincerely

The pulse reading often displays a low value like 60 even though my pulse is 120 or higher.
