Heartrate monitor / Flight deck compatibility(4 posts)

Heartrate monitor / Flight deck compatibilityChas

Does anyone know if a Polar heartrate monitor will interfere with the reception of a wireless flight deck?

I have both of these and there is no problem. Just a word of advice on the wireless flightdeck... avoid storing your bike in damp conditions. I had to leave my bike outside during a multi day ride event and the moisture of the morning air drained the battery of the fork transmitter. I suspect that some moisture created a contact and drained the battery. Not a big issue, but at the time I was concerned that the whole unit was malfunctioning.

The moisture may have speeded things up,But the sensor never shuts off!!!! That's right it is on 24hours a day seven days a week! I have to put a new battery in my sensor every 2months (depending on how much I ride)
You would think that Shimano would have figured this out by now.

Thanks Guys,
Just had the battery replaced in my heartmonitor so I'll start using it.

My flightdeck is two months old, only about 800 miles though. Still going strong.
