Wearing the heart rate sensor

  1. Moisten the electrode area of the strap.

  2. Fasten the strap around your chest and adjust the strap to fit snugly.
  3. Attach the connector.

Detach the connector from the strap and rinse the strap under running water after every use. Sweat and moisture may keep the electrodes wet and the heart rate sensor activated. This will reduce the transmitter battery life.
