I bought one of these, set it all up. I have used it twice and seemed ok but its started acting up, losing all my input settings,even the time. It has happened twice now and i suspect maybe its the battery,but its not even a week old.
In reply to madmo, have you tried wetting the contact strip slightly on the chest strap.I found this helped although it wouldnt give me a reading when used on my bike with the handlebar attachment.
I regret buying it so i'd say give it a wide berth.
Is this the MCP 20053?
Because i can't even get mine to take my heart rate - after following the instructions religiously i'm wondering what i am doing wrong!? Any tips? (Have used the water on the straps!)
Hi Hannah, yes it is the 20053.It sounds like your batterys are on the way out. I suspected mine was acting up due to the batterys(they only last 12 months,probably sat in a warehouse for a good deal of that) one in the strap and one on the watch/monitor,so decided to change them(both),its very straight forward. Fingers crossed it seems to be running ok now,although its only been a day with the new batterys. Give it a whirl dont buy batterys from newsagents way to expensive,bought 2 off ebay free p+p £1.49. heres the link.
good luck with it !
Does anyone have any training tips/ideas for heart rate training ??

Mine works fine.
Went to circuits yesterday. could see rate while doing shutle runs. at the end could see the calaries burnt and fat burnt. Do admit the the instructions are a bit messey, but it works fine and for £12.99 can complain

I just bought one and I would like to know how well people like it? Doesn't show your calories that you burn?
Press the top right and button so it shows pulse, then press the bottom right hand button till is shows stw. the press the bottom left hand button to start the stop watch, it will then start to record the calories burnt. It is in the instructions but took me a week to find
