Question about Exercise & Fitness
Those darned chest straps tend to go through batteries. Hopefully, yours has a replaceable battery. If it does, it should have a round area with a coin slot in it. You should be able to take a quarter and unscrew it. Inside there is probably a CR2032 battery - about the size of a quarter. Put a new one in
making sure you have the polarity correct. Then, if you are a man, who has a lot of chest hair, you might need to shave some of it off where the chest band pick-ups (on either side of the battery case) for a good contact on the skin. A good skin connection is necessary. They even make a special di-electric gel to facilitate a good heart beat reading. If you are a woman - especially an older woman - and your mammary glands (it won't let me use the B word) aren't the pert, young kind - you might need to work the strap up as far under them as possible to get it placed just above the solar plexus.
I have even heard of some people wearing the chest strap turned around so the contacts are on the back. This won't usually work unless a body is thin, though.
