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.

Suunto heart rate belt does not work after changing batteries


Hello. remove the new batteries and clean the contacts with the eraser end of a common pencil. Then reinsert the batteries. IF it still doesn't work it could be that your new batteries are no good. Take them to any radio shack store and they will test them for u at no charge. J.

Tip

Trouble with heart rate monitor reading heart rate.


Can't get a heart rate to show on your heart rate monitor? If there are no other issues with the watch, then most likely what you are experiencing is an issue with the Heart Rate Strap.

It is very common for all brands of heart rate monitors to have issues with measurement.

The #1 reason is poor contact with the strap and your skin. - Make sure the contacts are wet and touching the skin with good contact.
#2 reason - Weak battery, may need to replace.
#3 reason - Sensors on strap have salt build up from sweat - Clean the strap and contacts with soap and water, if deep cleaning is neccessary use a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol.
#4 reason - Strap is too low on the body, raise as high on the chest as possible to just under the breasts. Strap too low will cause a weak signal.

If none of these seem to help, then you should contact an authorized repair center or the customer service for your brand, and see about possible repair or exchange/ return.

Battery change, now no signal


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
