This review is from: Timex Mid-Size T5G941 Easy Trainer Heart Rate Monitor Watch (Sports)
I had this HRM for about 2 months and it worked fine for during that time period. This is a low end HRM without a lot of features but it was all I really needed.
Recently, it has started to quit working during some workouts. During some runs when my heart rate is high (above 175) it just quits. Other days it seems to work fine. It is very annoying when it quits in the middle of a workout so you lose your time as well as the heart rate information. If it keeps acting up, I will probably return it to Timex. They charge a $7.00 postage and handling fee to return it.

I have had this exact same problem as well. It's extremely annoying, and of course I bought mine before you posted this as luck would have it. Drat! I'm still trying to rule out interference with our treadmill & mp3 player, so we'll see. So far it's not passing the bar though.

I had the same problem, but it went away when I changed the battery on the chest strap device. I only get about a month per battery (using it 5x per week). But I can change the battery easily, and I find batteries for only a couple of bucks a Wal-Green. So I'm still using mine for now.

I thought it was the battery for awhile too but I just replaced the battery and it's still dying at higher heart rates.

Thanks D Topp for the info about the life of the battery. That is very helpful to know I should be changing it that frequently!
