Thanks for the comments.
Garmin sent a new heart monitor strap and its works perfect. also sending the watch back for a second time for a replacement.
Has anyone else had problems with the silver coating on the back of the watch rubbing off and uncovering the base metal and turning your wrist green?
I sent the watch back and receive a replacement, however the silver coating is rubbing off again after a month.
Also the replacement watch heart rate monitor reading is very high and the calorie counter doesnt work either.
I have sent Garmin an email concerning the above points.
I might change to the Garmin 910, but looks very bulky and cant see if it has an alarm so you can use as an everyday watch.
