Resolution: Improper Grip

  1. Good contact with the grip is essential. Before taking a pulse, stop walking and step on side rails and place hands on contacts.
  2. You may be gripping the heart rate handlebars too tight. Try to maintain moderate pressure while holding onto the heart rate handlebars.
  3. Try gripping the handlebar contacts over the top, with your thumb next to your index finger, instead of gripping it with your thumb under the handlebars.
  4. Contact heart rate grips are not intended for continuous reading. Rather, try holding the grips for 10-20 seconds at a time for an accurate reading.
  5. Static electricity can damage the heart rate grip receiver and/or grips and cause either an “HR” or no reading at all.
  6. Refer to the product manual that came with your machine for more information on the heart rate function.
