I have not been out running for about 6 months due to some personal issues. Over this time, I started smoking again and have now managed to kick the habit (I hope) and start running again.
Because of this, I am eager to use my Heart Rate Monitor to see how my HR improves over time as I use this as a guide to my increasing fitness.
The first time I went out for a run, when looking back over my stats, I noticed that the HRM readings werevery strange. Basically, it would appear that it is only taking a reading at intervals. Rather than a nice graph that jumps about everywhere, this is very blocky, with me having the same reading for a period of time and the instantly dropping by about 30 bps.
My initial thought was that there was a problem with the battery so I have now removed this and replaced it. Unfortunately this hasn't seemed to help.
When I went out for my last run, I was watching the read out a little more closely and it seemed to have a constant connection.
I tried to rescan the HRM but this didn't seem to help. I then removed it and readded it rescanning, but again, this made no difference.
Is there anything else I can try?
You can see what I mean from this run -
