Caring for the Heart Rate Monitor


A buildup of sweat and salt on the strap can decrease the ability of the heart rate monitor to report accurate data.

  • Rinse the heart rate monitor after every use.
  • Hand wash the heart rate monitor after every seven uses, using a tiny amount of mild detergent, such as dishwashing liquid.
    NOTE: Using too much detergent may damage the heart rate monitor.
  • Do not put the heart rate monitor in a washing machine or dryer.
  • When drying the heart rate monitor, hang it up or lay it flat.
