Question about Polar Heart Rate Monitors

1 Answer

I bought an ft4 monitor in nov 2010 and when I am exersizing for approximately 20 minutes the monitor loses signal from the transmitter. I can sometimes get a signal back by pressing the transmitter strap and /or reseating the transmitter on the chest strap. After some time I am able to connect the chest strap and transmitter and activate the monitor. The shop I bought the monitor from have already replaced the strap and transmitter and this fixed the problem for a couple of months. Do you have a solution to this problem

Look in my tips and tricks page for the most common issues regarding Heart Rate transmission, if none of these fix it, then you "may" have an issue with the equipment itself. Generally the most common issues area:

Strap not on correctly (too loose, too low, upside down, not enough wetness to conduct)
Environmental factors (signal interference, etc)

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

I bought product and wont work


Hi,
There are couple of reasons for your wireless mouse not to work. Please try changing the batteries first. Make sure that there are no other devices that might interfere with the signal. If the mouse is bluetooth then you might have to re-pair the device with the laptop in order to get better connectivity. On the mouse that you have is there was a "Connect" button that you need to press to get a new signal from the transmitter. Just to let you know, the transmitter is working with infrared; it only goes up to about 20 feet when in-line before it starts losing its signal.
Let us know if you are looking for something more else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Baby monoitor reciever piking up no sound or delayed sound - link light flashing


A delay may be caused by interference from other radio sources. I heard of one case where a woman's cell phone call overpowered the transmit power of her baby monitor.

Other things that can cause interference or other receiver problems:
1. monitor in contact or close proximity to running appliances or their cords. (induced electromagnetic field)
2. neighbor with baby monitor on same channel ('cross-talk')
3. distance between transmitter and receiver too far (the strength of a radio signal fall dramatically over larger distances. think of how often you lose cell phone coverage)
4. reduced power: low battery strength or cooked power supply
5. transmitter or receiver insulated from signal (if your monitor was transmitting/receiving through any metal obstruction)
