Anyone have any problems with their Polar HR's? My RS300x is now playing up with my HR spiking at over 200 and not moving from their or it just doesn't register at all. I've changed the battery but still the same. Is this a common problem with them and I should give up the ghost and bin it? I only use it in the gym as I have a Garmin for outside.

The only problems I've ever had with mine have been fixed by replacing the battery.

Whiskey, sorry I was not clear. I meant the transmitter battery. I'm still on the original watch battery after two years (although the watch is usually "asleep" when not in use). RS200 watch, by the way.

I cleaned the strap and changed the transmitter battery and it is still erratic :-(

Got something to say?
