Do I have to replace the battery in my heart rate monitor?
Yes. You need to replace it throughout the product’s lifespan. The watch and the chest transmitter belt for HR-210 and HR-310 use Lithium CR2032, 3V batteries.

The HR-210 and HR-310 models can be worn during light swimming in low water and in the shower. However, the chest transmitter should not be submerged in water.
I think I’m getting a disrupted signal from the chest transmitter.
In case of disrupted or weak signal, check the conductive pads and make sure there’s solid contact. Adjust the position of the chest belt and the watch and shorten the distance of the two device with no more than 25 inches.
