View Full Version : FR110 only manages to record pulse data intermittently.

I've been using an FR110 for a while now, and have noticed that it often looses it's connection with the chest strap and doesn't record pulse data for a while. Ironic that the device can remain in contact with satellites orbiting the earth, but not the chest strap which is less than 2 feet away.

I skate. The problem with recording happens when I adopt the traditional hands behind the back posture of a skater. I've tried putting a fresh battery into the chest strap, but that didn't help. Still get dropouts. The strap is generally awash in sweat, so I doubt that's the problem.

Any ideas? Or is this just as good as the product works?

I've read other posts where people suggest wearing the strap backwards. Is that really something people do?
