Re: Watch won't read heart rate
It could be the battery on the strap is not good. However just to be sure make sure you are wetting the strap and it is around chest, front should sit right about on the bottom of pectoral or chest, if you are female make sure it is under your sports bra the bra band will be over it. I would start warming up then hit the start button it should work.

First, you want to adjust the fit of the chest strap. <br />
Moistening give a more comfortable fit by reducing friction and will also help create a better connection between your skin and the receiver. It can also increase the lifespan of your belt.<br />
When properly looked after, your heart rate monitor watch should far outlive the chest strap. More often than not any problems you find with the watch can be traced to the chest strap or the batteryIn terms of conservation, the most important thing you can do is ensure that your watch is no longer monitoring after you return from your run. <br />
This should be easily achievable through the interface on the watch. Separating the watch from the monitor component by a significant distance will ensure that no unwanted connections continue after use.<br />
Where possible, make sure to remove the electrical component before rinsing the strap with some running tap water. If the watch and electrical component are particularly dirty, you can use a damp cloth to wipe them down, before putting everything aside to dry. Be sure not to leave the chest strap in the sun as this can cause the material to deform, making it itchy and uncomfortable to wear.
Well it depends on how much you sweat. The sensors need to be wet to read correctly. You can buy something called Heart Rate Gel cost about $5 to $10 Some people just lick the sensors on the watch strap and it works until they can start sweat enough.. Hope this helps.
The only alarms available to use for that watch is your heart rate for exercise and a daily alarm. Unfortunately it does not have the hourly alarm feature. I wish it did I am a personal trainer and hourly chimes would help to keep me on time but my rs200 doesn't have the feature either. Sorry :)
