  • Best Answer:

    You can't replace the battery, you will need a new sensor. The quoted battery life is 1000 hours. In terms of time, people are getting about 18 months to two years depending how hard they train, of course.

  • Unfortunately, you must replace the sensor at $20 a piece.

  • No, the sensor's battery is not replaceable or rechargeable. The sensor’s battery has a life of over 1000 active hours. The sensor sends a low battery signal when there is around 2 weeks of life remaining (based on usage pattern), indicating that the sensor needs to be replaced. Battery life will vary considerably based on use and other factors.
