Hello. I recommend that you change the battery. It takes a CR2032. Use a coin to twist the back cover counterclockwise until it is loose enough to remove. Also clean the sensors. And reapply moisture in the form of saliva, water or electrode gel.
If installing a new battery and taking these other steps does not fix the problem you will have to send the watch to Garmin for repair.
here is the manual: http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/984_OwnersManual.pdf
And for Garmin repair info go to: http://www8.garmin.com/support/warranty.html

How do i change a battery in a garmin 305


Hi David!

From your Owners Manual (Page 54)
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/984_OwnersManual.pdf

REPLACE THE HEART RATE MONITOR BATTERY

"The heart rate monitor contains a user replaceable CR 2032 battery...
Locate the circular battery cover on the back of the heart rate monitor. Use a coin to twist the cover counter-clockwise until it is loose enough to remove. Remove the cover and replace the battery. Be careful not to lose or damage the o-ring gasket on the cover. Then use a coin to twist the cover back into place."

Hope this helps.

Heart rate writst watch won't work


Hi,
Here is the manual for your heart rate monitor:
http://www.omronhealthcare.com/img/shop/hr-100c---2003-hr100cinst-rev-a.pdf
The size of your wrist shouldn't matter, because you can actually mount the monitor to a bike handle, so you don't have to be wearing it at all. It's just acting as a receiver, displaying the info. Are you wearing the transmitter belt, is it positioned correctly, and tight enough? Are you putting water or gel on the backside of the transmitter so that you get good conduction and contact? Is the transmitter belt within 20 inches of the monitor receiver display?
The transmitter battery might be low. If so, the symptom would be that your readings can be erratic. I know you said that you just bought it, but batteries can be low in new products. ..How many times have you bought a new digital watch only to find that it had a low battery...You can replace the battery in the transmitter with a lithium 3v battery #CR2032. Do you see a low battery indicator? If so, the display (receiver) battery also needs replacing and it uses the same battery as the transmitter.
Hope it helps, please let me know.
Thanks

Heart rate monitor not working, changed battery and fiddled with battery to make sure contacts touch, still not working


You need to go in and reset you heart monitor so it is set with the device. Go into accessories; heart rate monitor and reset it. For some reason, it loses it's connection with the monitor and needs to be reset. Especially if you haven't used it for a hwile. My son borrowed my garmin and heart reate monitor. I thought he broke it, but it just needed to be reset.

I haven't used my Garmin Forerunner 305 for over a year - but have just started using it again. It wasn't picking up my heart rate from the HRM, so I changed the battery in the HRM but it is still not...


I found this on the internet......

In the battery compartment there’s a gold contact that touches the top of the battery (+ve) which was in a position that would never make contact with the battery. I bent it out slightly, made sure the battery was seated correctly (i.e. flat) and as if by magic my heart rate appeared on the large Garmin display!


Also found this..........

I Have had the same problem couple of times (and forgotten each time how I solved it). I figured it out just now and this is what I did.

1) turn on unit and put on heart monitor (make sure battery is good and wet heart strap)
2) using the mode button navigate the menus to: Settings: General: Accessories: Heart Rate Monitor
3) Once in the Heart Rate Monitor option make sure "Yes" is selected and then use the arrow buttons to highlight "Restart Scan" . Press the enter button to rescan for your heart monitor. (I had to rescan twice)
Go back to the main monitor screen to see if you are recieving heart rate signals.

I am not sure why a manual rescan needs to be done every time but it would be nice if Garmin fixed this issues in a unit software update (my unit has software version 2.80


Hope this helps......

Can`t pair Garmin Forerunner 50 with footpod


Hi,

I've been having the same problem. I couldn't pair my footpod, but my heart rate monitor was working. I've only had the 50 for about eight weeks.

I reset the watch, holding view mode and Start/Stop at the same time.
This didn't do any good.

I swapped the battery in the HRM with that in the foot pod. The foot pod synched the HRM didn't.

Solution duff battery. I'd change yours it will probably do the trick.

Hope it helps
