    Apparently, so I've read, Polar HRM's are sometimes difficult to make shake hands with the online website.

    For what it's worth, I happened to notice that this vendor says that a certain $20 microphone makes connections easier. Just sayin', don't have any experience with these meself :confused:...

    I have the no-name, stock microphone that comes with a computer when you buy it, and it's really old.

    However, it works like a charm. I hold my CS200cad right up to (touching) the microphone and the signal meter on the Polar Weblink software is always high this way.

    If you're running windows, this may help:

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Sound Recorder

    Now, select Edit > Audio Properties. Click Volume buttom under Sound Recording.... Push the volume slider up all the way. Now your microphone is more sensitive to sound.
