Extra wire?

Post by Uffda » October 28th, 2018, 8:15 pm

Hello,
I just replaced a PM1 with a PM5 kit and there’s a second wire that is a Polar receiver” on this Model C I just picked up. Is this unnecessary now that PM5 can use a Bluetooth monitor? I don’t see anywhere on the PM5 where I could plug it in and am thinking I should just remove it (since I don’t have polar chest strap either). Any info is appreciated, thanks!

You're right - it can't be used with the PM5, so you can definitely remove.

Yes no good on the PM5, its only good on the PM3 and PM4, however if its a genuine Polar one you could probably sell it.

Sounds like a remuddle on the occasion of resale. Seller kept his upgrade monitor, mounted the PM1, but left his heart rate dongle? Or?

Actually, I was wrong, it had come with a PM2 so no remuddling. :) I got the erg for such a screaming deal, I’m happy to send the wire to anyone who could use it (in continental USA). Can’t guarantee it works but looks fine. Looks like this: https://www.waterrower.co.uk/uk/analog- ... polar.html

HR dongle keeping company with compatible monitor (2,2+,3, or 4). Makes more sense.
