Cheers all. Cougie, the RHR at 90 is a manual check, whilst the Garmin is reading 112.
Siggy, the consultant is sure that the procedure was successful (a few odd glitches but nothing sustained) so it doesn't need to be redone at the moment. But thanks anyway, you big old queen (I assume that's what you meant by Her Majesty"?)
It affects both the wrist one and the bike one, so I will go with the transmitter/belt as suggested.
I like the idea of contacting their tech department and will report back as to what they say.
I also tried emptying both devices, which can sometimes work but hasn't this time.
Since my heart ablation op in August last year, the Garmin seems all over the place when I connect up.
My old real RHR was 54, now it's around 90 but the Garmin records it as around 112.
Seems like I only have to fart to get it to read over 200 and starting a slow bike ride (around 8-10mph) sees readings of 240, though they do settle a bit later to maybe 140.
So the question is, after an ablation, does the HRM read the electrical impulses from what the heart is trying to do, but is prevented from doing so by the surgery, or can it simply not read accurately at all coz the impulses have changed somehow by the op?
The latter of which would mean my Garmin is effectively shit and useless, but still looks cool.
Probably needs an "Engineer meets Plodding Hippo" response, but go for it anyway. :O)
Oddly enough PRW, I can't remember your face at all, but your voice imprint is stuck clearly in my oddly wired bonce. If I heard it I could pick you out across a hall! Deep, resounding and not a million miles away from Hertfordshire accent.
Cat5 makes a lot of sense. I actually hoped to buy a new pair of running shoes but no-one was selling what I wanted. Odd really. Did quite well on the freebies, about 27 quids worth.
Did seem quite swimming heavy, Zoggs, 2 endless pools, big swim shop, NOWCA. Also, lots of those tri training camps abroad, loads of nutritional supplements, loads more nutritional supplements, fizzios, more nutritional supplements and tons of sticky tasting yuk. Dassia bikes gets my vote as saviour of the day with some free chocolate chip shortbreads.
UK Tri (the Stratford people) seemed very keen on some pirate teaming up for their new best tri team in the country race up in Shropshire. I said they would need to lay on a burger van and some decent beer if they wanted pirate support, which they said they would be pleased to do! Details will be on the website.
Nice afternoon out but don't expect anything new or much in the way of stonking show deals like you used to get.
