You did not say if you are using an ANT+ or an analog HRM (analog often does not work so well with the Genius). In any event, go through the Device Wizard and select the type of HRM that you have and then save. You can't do this in the middle of a ride. You have to do it beforehand.

Hmmm. I have no idea. It's which ever one they sell at tacx. I'll check. Thanks

It did work at first for a day or so. Then went to zero. Not the battery

There are two steps in Setup | Settings for HRM.

Make sure you have done both, particularly Heat Rate ON in the second settings screen else you get zero display.

Also make sure the rubber contacts to each side of the HRM sensor are moistened with water when fitting to ensure it switches on.

Hope this sorts for you.

It's an ANT+ HRM. Electronic noise could cause interference. Be sure you are using a USB extension cable with the USB stick hung over the handlebars in order to get it closer to you.
