Heart Rate Monitors and Airport

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I had to head home for an emergency while on vacation and left my heart rate monitor strap in my camelpack. It went through the x-ray equipment at the airport. When I went to use it the following day it didn't work. Anything I should know about the x-ray equipment and heart reate monitors? I have never opened it up to replace the battery but it should still have plenty of life. The unit is only a few months old. Any suggestions would be nice. BTW. I also left a leatherman and a folding bike tool set in the pack. The TSA didn't like it too much but kept asking if I wanted to surrender the items. As the TSA agent was walking me back through security he stated that he bikes and has wanted a set of tools like mine. He seemed a bit bummed that I didn't surrender them.

funny about the tools, he almost got himself a new set I guess call your heart rate monitor company about the strap, I dont know why it would stop working but I guess you never know.

What brand is it? The battery that came in the strap of my SigmaSport PC-14 started fading out after about two weeks.

it is a basic model timex. the strap battery was easy to replace. my only complaint is the HR readout is too small. its hard to read while riding, running or on the treadmill. I will be looking for a replacement. i plan to spend a bit more for its replacement.
