Question about Nike Triax Elite Hrm/Sdm Heart Rate Monitor Watch
The most common reason for not being able to pick up your heart rate on the monior watch is problems with the connection of the belt sensors to your chest. There are 2 sensors on the belt which goes around your chest. These must be very wet in order to pick up your heartbeat. It's best to put a large spit on it, rather than tap water which just runs off. Keep the inside of it turned upwards until you connect it with your chest so the spit can't run off.
Also it's important to have the sensors in the right place. To find where the belt should go place your hand on the centre of your chest. Feel where the ribs end. The belt goes just above that point. If you still don't get a reading try moving the belt slightly up or down. It can take a minute or 2 for the watch to pick up the reading so allow 2 minutes before moving the belt.
Also if you have a very low heart rate, below 40 bpm, this can cause problems as the monitor thinks it's a false reading.
There's no need to sync to the computer first.

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.
