It I get blips on Optical I tighten the strap a notch, I find it has to tighten enough to leave a indent when taken off to get it working perfectly. Sometimes a strap is better although with the cold it makes everything is a bit rubbish!

Always had very erratic data from wrist HR

Think it’s my skinny wrists. Once it went up it never came down so my readings always super high.

It works better if you put the face flat against the underside of your wrist. I changed for a Polar armband and I do now trust the data no spikes and actually goes down when I ease off.

Got something to say?
