I just bought a Polar FT7 about a week ago and no matter what I do I cannot seem to get it to register my heart rate.
I am wetting the sensors- I have tried running it under water, using saliva, wetting it and my skin both.
I have experimented with various tightnesses ranging from secure but not tight to as tight as I could make it go.
And I have tried directly under the boobs in the middle, under the boobs towards my heart, running over my boobs to the middle, and over my boobs and towards my heart.
No matter what combination I do, when I start the HRM it searches for maybe 45 second to a minute than flashes 00. It isn't telling me to check the monitor or any error messages I have read about online, just stays at 00.
I do have a low resting heart rate (45-55) but I also tried it after running in place for a few minutes to check if that was the problem.
I am out of ideas and were hoping someone on here might have some?
Thanks in advance!
