is it possible to replace the battery in the sensor? or must I buy a new sensor?
my receiver no longer detects my sensor. I am assuming that the sensor battery is dead. can I replace it, or do I need to buy a new sensor? how long is the sensor battery supposed to last?

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.
