    I'm struggling to get my AW to read my HR whilst I'm on workout mode and doing an outdoor cycle. I understand that my arm is angled 45 degrees down toward the handlebars but the HR reading doesn't happen unless I straighten my arm and hold steady (needless to say it is not the safest method).
    Funny thing is during any elliptical, walking, running workouts it works perfectly.
    Any other outdoor cyclists experience this? I'm interested to know how it's working for you.

    You just need to move the watch up on your wrist about ½" and be sure the strap is snug.
