Timex HRM Problem

Recently purchased a Timex HRM, one of those to be worn on the wrist like a watch.
Works fine on the wrist, but when I go for a ride I mount it on the handle bar of bike so I can see it better, wrapped around a piece of pipe insulation, and it seems to work for a few minutes, then loses the signal, it is no further way then my wrist, and I am wondering if may be due to the cold, the temperature is starting to climb a little above freezing here now.
Any Thoughts?
Thanks All

Are you talking about the signal from the GPS unit to the watch or the HRM? My guess is the battery is low- possibly due to the low temp. I put the GPS on my belt or strapped to my arm, works fine.
