This can be caused by a number of factors from dead battery to lost signal. I have on my tips and tricks page a checklist for HR signals and causes for disruption.

If it is the Battery then...

#1 - Hard strap, only remedy is too replace, batteries are sealed in.

#2 - Soft strap (wearlink), these have a replaceable battery 2025 and you can do this yourself.

Sometimes, my watch gives me crazy readings such as 221 bpm at rest for my heart beat when I use the chest strap transmitter. What causes that and how can I prevent it? Could it be my WiFi internet network...


Make sure your chest strap is a good fit so it doesn't move, not too slack. Also you need to wet the sensors so that you get a good connection. On the Garmin ones they recommend using an electrode gel but that costs money and I find spit/saliva works just as well.

Need to remove the cover from a britax eclipse si..how


Press and hold down the harness release button. With your other hand below the chest pads, pull the shoulder straps forward as far as possible. With the Eclipse Si fully reclined, open the seat-belt guard at the back of the shell. Pull the yoke out from behind the seat and unhook both shoulder straps. Pull the cover from the top of the seat so that you can see the slots in the seat shell. Pull each shoulder strap and chest pad strap forward and towards the centre of the shell, easing the metal tab and straps through the slot. Then thread them through to the front of the cover. Unfasten the buckle and remove the comfort pad. Gently pull the cover off the seat, easing the shoulder straps, chest pads, harness buckle and adjuster strap through the slots in the cover.

How do I enable my EFX 544 to give my heart rate while wearing my polar heart rate chest strap?


If the EFX 544 has polar Heart Rate attach to the upper electronics your chest strap should be transmitting and the unit should be receiving. If your chest strap is more than 3 yrs old usually the battery will die and needs to be replaced or you have a defective receiver and will have to be replaced

Doesn't synch with heart monitor


Hmmm. Trick one without seeing the unit.. The most obvious is that the battery in the chest strap is dead. If it's one of the sealed ones then the whole chest strap will need to be replaced, if not then it'll be a standard watch battery. I should be clear from the chest strap if the battery can be replaced.
If both batteries are ok then try to turn on the Forerunner, put on the chest strap(make sure to lick the back of the sensor or dip it in water to make a solid connection, strange I know but that's what they reccomend). Then hold your wrist wearing the Forerunner a couple of inches from the sensor on your chest, sometimes needs to be for 30 seconds or so.. All going well that should do it.. Beyond that you're into the software in the Forerunner itself and that has to go back to Garmin..

Polar F11 not responding


I' advise to start with battery check. If the battery is ok, then you will need a professional to find the cause of malfunction.

HRM troubleshoot


A HRM is a training tool that helps you do cardiovascular (CV) training correctly, neither too hard, nor too easy. It’s almost like having a personal coach on your wrist! Every HRM comes in two parts: 1. An elasticated chest strap which contains a pair of sensors that detect and transmit your heart rate. 2. A wrist worn receiver that receives the signal from the chest strap and displays your heart rate. The receiver may also have additional functions and display other information depending upon the HRM model chosen. Both the chest strap and receiver are battery operated.

Nike Triax CV10 - Successful HRM reset 7 November 2008
 
I had real problems too. Even after repeatedly following the known reset steps everyone else is posting up. Here’s how I got mine going, please forgive the mind bogglingly tedious detail…
 
First make sure you’re using new good quality batteries. I used Maxell’s, bought in 10’s from Hong Kong on ebay – no problem.
 
Second, and this is the ESSENTIAL bit…move right away from the computer and any other electromagnetic sources before carrying out the known reset…
 
Third, follow the known reset steps below, adjusted to what worked for me…
 
If you press all four buttons of your Nike HRM it will reset. Next time you go to "RUN" mode, it will show "HRM LINK" error. You will now need to "hard reset" the unit.
 
Nike made a late change to add a "hard reset" to the chest strap. To re-link (re-initialise) the watch you'll need to open the battery door on the chest strap, and use a paper clip (or the equivalent) to push the small gold button in the battery area. There should be a small sticker in the battery compartment that points to the reset button.
 
The re-initialisation steps for the Nike C10 and CV10 digital HRM's is:
 
(1) reset the watch
(2) open the battery door on the chest strap
(3) move the watch to RUN mode
(4) press the reset button in the chest strap battery area without removing the battery
 
Tip - I agree with the suggestion to use a pin or needle and definitely do it with the battery in the hrm.
Tip – Thumb holds battery to stop it from pinging out, other hand performs jiggle with pin until the link is made (it links straightaway if you jiggle it just right!)
 
(5) replace chest strap battery cover…and smile!
