>Gears and Wears>Another heart monitor question
To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire

Then again I was out for a rather long time and maybe the begining of my runs drive my rate up higher than normal right now.
It's not a battery issue if it is that new.
Is the only thing that is abnormal is that your heart rate seems too high? It might just be that your heart rate shoots up when you first start (before you get in your 'zone' and your stride smooths out). I've seen that happen with mine, even when the connection is good and it seems to be monitoring perfectly. I think it just takes me awhile to relax and find a smooth pace. Anyway, it could be that.. though the hair-chest thing seems like a likely problem.
