    Dug an old one out of the cupboard battery flat. Do i just get it cahnged in my local watch place? LBS said send it off it'll stay waterproof, but that sounds like a bit of a palaver. (and a bit expensive too?) Any views?

    Plus the bit that goes round the chest........does it have a battery?? Cant see any obvious space for one.

    Thanks andy

    I've changed my own battery on a 'Polar S410', don't use it for swimming etc. The only problem I had was getting a good fitting screwdriver.

    The older chest transmitter was sealed, the newer ones have replaceable battries. http://wiggle.co.uk/ProductDetail.a...olar WearLink+ Transmitter/Electrode Belt Set

    only for CS400 and obove, as its a personal HRM and will only read whats coming from your own HRM and not Joe bloggs riding next to you.

    The lower HRM still have sealed straps and can be bought for around £15 each, but last long enough not to worry about for quite some time.

    How Old is your HRM? what model is it?
