HR accuracy issues

Is there anyone else having issues with HR readings?
I noticed that my HR was "stuck" during workouts, and would never get any higher than ~100.

I've tried wearing the watch in maybe 10 different ways, other arm, removed all sweat, tightened the strap, etc.. nothing worked.
All software is up to date.

I had a friend nearby who has a FR 235 and that watch reported HR 142 while mine was displaying 101. I think that's different enough to say that it's not working.
It sometimes work , and sometimes not. Can't make head nor tails of it... ciq.forums.garmin.com/.../1480558.jpg

  • From yesterday i have a problem with hr reading, yesterday with hiit i was at my limit and the watch said i was at aerobic pace, basically 140bpm, while before the same effort and exercise put me at 190bpm.

    Today with a run, running at my full speed, gave me orange zone around 163bpm while 3 days ago the same effort gave me red zone with 190bpm.

    Seems like hr readins screwed up.
