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

Polar ft40 watch doesnt work. I have replaced the battery and nothing happens.


This heart rate monitor has a generic flaw with the sensor. The touch sensor fails after a few months of use. It is not a battery issue. Return to where you purchased it. Buy another brand. All of the drug stores carry this watch which has an abnormal return rate. The sensor fails after a few months while the watch function is fine. Seems like planned obsolescence.

How do you turn the heartrate monitor on?


How do I turn the Heart Rate function on and off on my watch? Within the Date and Time screen, if the heart icon is showing, the heart rate function is on. To turn off the heart rate function, simply hold the Reset button until the heart icon goes away.

Turn off sound when heartrate drops


On the screen just prior to work-out mode:

1. Select Settings using the right buttons and the OK button.
2. Select HR Alarm.
3. Select Off.
4. Press the OK button.
5. Press OK again to start exercise.

The same can be done during exercise by hold the OK button down to get to the menu. Very convenient when you use the alarm sometimes and have left it on.

No instruction manual for a LifeSource chest/wristwatch monitor -


Not sure that you are talking about a blood pressure monitor or a heart rate monitor.

The blood pressure monitor that you listed as the device you are asking about the manual is here

http://www.lifesourceonline.com/and_med.nsf/html/WEBB6FKQFC/$FILE/UA767Plus.pdf

if you are talking about a heart rate monitor , which it sounds like because those have watches and chest bands that is something different. i would need to know what kind of heart rate monitor it is. A few tips on the devices, you will need to dampen the contacts on the band, make sure you place it in direct contact with your skin, under your pectoral muscle, if you are female then it goes under your sports bra band. i always reccomend jumping on a machine for a little warm up then starting the watch.

I noticed you said that you changed the battery i hope you sent the watch in to the manufacturer to change, sometimes it comes out ok but alot of times it doesn't work there are sensative devices in the watch that can get messed up very easily.
