CARE OF A HEART RATE SENSOR WITH A COMFORTTEX BELT
o Remove the transmitter unit from the belt after each use and dry it with a soft towel.
o Make sure that you detach both sides of the transmitter unit from the belt so that the buckles do not oxidise and the battery does not wear out.
o If necessary, clean the transmitter unit with mild soap and water. Never use alcohol or abrasive materials (steel wool or chemical cleaning agents). Never put the transmitter unit in the washing machine or tumble dryer. ” TEXTILE BELT
o Wash the belt under running water after each use and hang it up to dry.
o Wash the belt regularly in lukewarm water with mild hand soap or washing-up liquid. Rinse the belt thoroughly after washing and hang it up to dry. Do not use moisturising soaps as they can leave residues on the belt. Do not soak, iron, dry clean or bleach the belt. Do not stretch the belt and do not bend the electrode areas.
o IMPORTANT INFO
o Dirt impairs the elasticity and function of the belt. Wash the belt regularly to ensure it works properly and to maximise its service life.
Remember that the belt does not last forever. It wears out like any other item of clothing that you wear and wash regularly. Straps are available as accessories when yours wears out. ” STORAGE
o Dry and store the strap and the heart rate sensor transmitter unit separately to maximise the life of the heart rate sensor battery.
o Always store the heart rate sensor in a cool and dry place.
o To avoid corrosion of the buckles, do not store the heart rate sensor damp in a non-breathable material, such as a sports bag.
o Do not expose the heart rate sensor to strong sunlight for long periods of time.
