Sportline S12 Watch Malfunctioning - Had To Return It

Saturday, April 04, 2009

On a previous blog I posted how much I liked this product, and still do, if it would operate correctly.

I had read on another review website someone complaining about this watch just resetting to new condition when pushing a button...something it should not do unless you push three buttons simultaneously. He returned it.

I had this happen once a couple weeks ago, and then again yesterday. I called the company, they said return it to Walmart or send it to them at my cost and they would send a new one, two weeks estimated time.

I returned it to Walmart yesterday, and exchanged it for another one. On my morning walk today, I pushed the button for heart rate while in pedometer mode, and it reset.

Back to Walmart for a credit this time, no more tries, three strikes you're out.

I still may purchase a similar watch even from the same manufacturer, just think there is a bad batch of these out there...and I like the pedometer/heart rate monitor in one single unit.

    Oh my ... I just ordered a HRM. I ordered the Polar F6 Green Tea Ladies Heart Rate Monitor from Amazon.com. Heard a lot of good things about it from the ladies who are training for the Fargo Marathon on my Spark North Dakota team. I hope I don't have the same kind of problems with mine that you have had with yours. I'm REALLY looking forward to getting outside for some serious power walking when (if?) the darn snow goes away!
