I’m trying to troubleshoot a recurring problem with heart rate monitors - whether I’m riding inside or out. They’ll generally start out reading fine… and then when the ride starts getting tougher, HR tracking gets really wonky. Attached image shows how it happens… chugging through an effort at 140-145 HR and then I get these big dropouts where it’ll show, say, 100 for a period of minutes.
I’ve wondered if it is bluetooth flaking out for some reason. Doesn’t seem related to battery life and I can replicate the behaviour on two Tickrs that I own. Also doesn’t seem to relate to my connection to the strap… as I’m generally in full-on salty sweat mode by the time problems start.
Posting in case there is something obvious I’m missing! Any suggestions welcome.
