So get this:
The heart monitor kept trying to fruitlessly submit the recordings to T-mobile cell towers and there was no way for me to keep the monitor on for recording purposes AND stop it from fruitlessly throwing out its signal to transmit. So the brand new batteries are now dead within HOURS of starting the heart monitor.
I'm going to call my doctor's office on Tuesday. (Monday is labor day). If they don't have another heart monitor company they use I have no idea how they plan on getting heart monitor readings from me.
