Hi

I have a Tomtom Adventurer. Working fine so far. My concern is that the protective layer/plastic around the HRM is peeling off or it looks like it.
is it supposed to do that? will it affect the watch in the long term?

    That may have been on for shipping purposes and was supposed to come off hen you got the watch. Mine has no such plastic on it. Give it a good scrubbing with a soft cloth to remove any residue and you should be fine. You don't want anything interfering with the LEDs or it will impair accuracy.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

    @Leon. I see what you mean. Around the hrm of my runner 2 there is some shiny black plastic and there are some small bubbles under it. Not as worse as with yours, but now I know it I will keep an eye on it.

    my watch was like this from day 1 it's actually not peeling off nor deteriorating, that's just how the resin cured when they assembled the sensor with the back of the watch. Probably a hair fell on it on the assembly line... :(
