1. Carefully wash the transmitter with a mild soap
and water solution.
2. Rinse it with pure water.
3. Dry the transmitter carefully with a soft towel.
4. Keep the wrist receiver clean and wipe off
any moisture.
5. Store the heart rate monitor in a clean and dry
place. Dirt impairs the elasticity and functioning
of the transmitter. Sweat and moisture can keep
the electrodes wet and the transmitter activated,
which shortens battery life.
The combined impact of moisture and intense
abrasion may cause a black color, which might
stain light-colored clothes especially, to come
off the transmitter's surface.
