    Check to see that the watch is set to display the beats per minute instead of the percentage of maximum. I changed my battery and the watch reverted back to showing the heartrate as a percentage and it read in the 30's and 40's until I got going, then would never climb above the 80's. The fix was to change the way the heartrate was displayed. The monitor was just fine.

    How do you set the date on the W/R 30M Heart rate monitor? Holding On/Off nad the attempting to adjust month and day does not work. Any thoughts?

Make sure the back of the watch is spotless and your skin isn't too dry.

Timex M515 Heartb Rate Monitor in correct readings


I´m experienced the same problem of incorrect readings after a long time without use. I cleaned the rubber parts of the chest strap with soap and water, than I use some silicone grease or other silicon liquid to keep the rubber hydrated. Make a careful cleaning in the contact area between the rubber and the plastic parts, the fissure in these area use to be full of "sweat dust".

Hello,

It sounds like most of you have the heart rate set to display in % of max heart rate. Most Polar products have the option of heart rate in BPM(beats per minute) or percentage of max.

If you look at the display during the exercise, you will see a % icon. You can turn it off in by hitting the back button and go down to HR view settings.

Hope this helps.
