Disappointed :(

So I got my new HRM in today! I was so excited and I couldn't wait to try it out (even tho I had just finished my first day of ripped in 30... Intense!!). When I finally get the watch all programmed and ready to go, I put on the chest strap. Put water on the sensors, followed the instructions exactly. And it does... Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I find out if I literally touch the watch to the strap it says a heart rate... Of around 250. Obviously wrong. So after an afternoon of unhappiness and frustration, I decide I'm going to return it and get a polar. Screw it. End of rant :)

I got the polar ft4 because I don't need a fancy one, just basic heart rate and calorie burn. But I've heard that they make really good ones from everyone on here. Hopefully it's much better than the other one!

I originally got the Pyle. I wasn't looking for a fancy one and since it was my first HRM I didn't think it would matter if I got a cheap one to start out with. I got it on amazon and returned it the same day I got it. But I ordered the polar ft4 right after I returned the other one! So now I'm excited to get it on Wednesday!
