Heart rate sensor
Detach the heart rate sensor from the strap after every use and wipe it dry with a soft towel. Clean the heart rate sensor with a mild soap and water solution when needed. Never use alcohol or any abrasive material (e.g. steel wool or cleaning chemicals).
Rinse under running water after every use and hang to dry. Clean the strap gently with a mild soap and water solution when needed. Do not use moisturizing soaps, because they can leave residue on the strap. Wash regularly. Check the label on your strap for detailed washing instructions. Do not soak, iron, dry clean or bleach the strap. Do not stretch the strap or bend the electrode areas sharply.
Dry and store the strap and the heart rate sensor separately to maximize the heart rate sensor battery lifetime. Keep the heart rate sensor in a cool and dry place. To prevent snap oxidation, do not store the heart rate sensor wet in non-breathing material. Do not expose the heart rate sensor to direct sunlight for extended periods.
