    Tighten up the strap a bit and keep sweating into it! When it dries out on a descent it'll flap on your chest. If you really care you can get an electrode gel to put on the contacts.

    i give it go, but i'm a real sweaty guy. is it to tight when your head turns blue?

    That might be a 60 Hz power line added to your HR. Would 190 be reasonable for you?

    That means it is almost tight enough. Crank it down a bit more and go for purple.

    Tired battery? Maybe you didn't pay the $200 Garmin monthly access fee (send it to Jason M. and we'll take care of it for you).

    worked better today, got her tight enough that my fatback-strap was leaking over the hr strap. Does this in-print go away?

    well, my polar will do that at times, too, but usually only to 210 or so....and I sweat enormous amounts as well.
