Ownership of Website
This website is the property of G.Owen trading as “Fitsense Sports”. Fitsense Sports and the domain name www.fitsense.co.uk are trading names.
Fitsense reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or cease to supply any product or service contained on this website. In the event that such removal takes place we shall not be liable to you in any way whatsoever for such removal.
This website is for non-commercial, personal use only. The services and content contained on this website may be supplied on a commercial basis upon payment to Fitsense of its charges from time to time. Please contact our customer services team for further details. In the event that you use any of the services or content contained on this website for commercial use, Fitsnese shall be entitled to charge you at its rates from time to time in respect of such commercial use.
The limitations of colour reproduction and the individual colour settings of your screen may mean a slight variation between the on screen and actual product colours. Every reasonable care has been taken to ensure that the descriptions are accurate. However, specifications may change.
Products and services
We reserve the right to amend any prices and details relating to products and services without any prior notice and to end any offers or promotions at any time. All products and services are subject to availability and we give no guarantee in this regard. Goods are invoiced in pounds (£) sterling at the price prevailing at the time your order is placed. Prices are inclusive of Value Added Tax ("VAT") which will be charged at the prevailing rate and are exclusive of delivery charges. Delivery charges, if charged will be added to the price of the goods purchased so that the online order form shows the total charges which we will debit. The prices indicated apply only to online purchases and are not indicative of the price of identical goods purchased by any other means. Fitsense will try to ensure that all prices displayed are correct and within the company's pricing structure. In the event that an incorrect price is advertised, we shall amend such price upon notification. We are under no obligation to supply any product that is priced incorrectly.
From time to time when we have special offers including money off, free gifts etc, only one offer will apply. For clarity - if we have an offer of a free product if another product is bought, this will only apply if no other offer or discount has been used as well. If you have already applied a discount code, you will not be entitled to the free product in addition - the free product would only be sent if the product was bought at the advertised price and instructions followed.
Fitsense will send you an email to acknowledge receipt of your order ("Advice Note"). Receipt of your credit or debit card details and debit of payments does not constitute our acceptance of your order. Our acceptance of your order takes place upon despatch of the goods to you at which point the purchase contract is made. We reserve the right to decline your order for any reason whatsoever and to refuse bulk orders. If we do so a member of our customer services team will contact you and will refund in full any charges which have been incurred.
In the event that an order is placed for delivery after 12.00 noon on the Friday of a Bank Holiday weekend, this delivery would then be delivered by 5.00pm on the following Wednesday. If a delivery order was placed after 12.00 noon on the Thursday prior to the Easter Bank Holiday, this order would be delivered by 5.00pm on the Wednesday.
Delivery is deemed to take place when the goods are delivered to your nominated delivery address, whereupon the risk of loss, breakage and damage passes to you. Ownership of the goods does not pass to you until payment is received in full by Fitsense.
Some postal addresses in Ireland, some offshore islands and some remote areas of Great Britain may not be covered by our delivery services and we may not be able to arrange delivery of some items to such addresses. You will be notified of this when you place your order.
From time to time if free delivery is offered, this applies to UK Mainland Addresses only.
Deliveries to Northern Ireland may need to wait an extra day to receive their order.
We deliver to most European destinations but will only deliver outside Europe at our discretion and direct payment into our bank account may be required in some cases prior to the despatch of goods.
Whilst we make every effort to deliver goods on the day we specify, we cannot guarantee delivery on that day or accept liability for deliveries made outside this timescale. The standard service is delivery within 1-3 days of dispatching the order. Delivery times for specific products can be found on the product detail page. 90% of orders will reach the customer within this specified time.
Delivery charges for areas outside of the UK mainland or for larger items of fitness or equestrian equipment and supplements will be displayed at the Checkout stage of the transaction process. All orders are shipped via Royal Mail First Class Recorded Delivery (1-3 day delivery), Royal Mail Next-Day Special Delivery, or by an independent courier service for larger items (such as sports supplements or sports equipment).
Most items will be able to be tracked via Royal Mail or by an independent courier service. We cannot include any special instructions for delivery.
You will receive email notification as soon as your order is dispatched. We will contact you immediately if for any reason the item ordered will take slightly longer for dispatch.
Upon you placing an order and confirmation by us we are contracted to supply the goods ordered, Orders are only deemed as accepted once goods have been dispatched, confirmation that we have received your order does not mean we have accepted your order.
All items are subject to stock availability. If for any reason the goods are no longer available we will notify you immediately and either:
Give you the option of receiving alternative goods of similar price and quality;
Cancel the item from your order and refund you in full.
When we deliver your items you will be asked to sign for the goods to acknowledge that you have received them. All deliveries will require signed proof of delivery. Goods can be left at the delivery address with someone other than the purchaser as long as a signature and printed name is signed by the receiver. If the carrier is unable to deliver the goods they will be held by the carrier and a card left stating that a delivery was attempted giving details of where the goods are held or when redelivery will take place (This is dependent upon the carrier used at the time). No goods will be left in sheds, garages, gardens or outhouses. Where a courier service is used for delivery of sports supplements or larger items, delivery will be attempted twice, if the customer is not present the first time. After this, if the parcel is returned to us, customers will be charged the prevailing rate for the parcel to be sent back to us and to be sent out again. Any non-collected consignments will also be charged for at the prevailing rate.
All goods are warranted to be generally free from defects in workmanship and materials and fit for the purposes for which such goods would normally be used. However, on rare occasions products may be found to be faulty or defective and in keeping with our commitment to providing customers with excellent service, we offer the returns facility set out below.
All returns are the responsibility of the customer. Fitsense will only cover the cost of faulty or damaged returned goods.
Returning faulty or damaged goods
If an item is faulty please contact our customer services team in the first instance to obtain a returns number and we will arrange an appropriate remedy within the first 14 days. We will not accept receipt of any returned goods without a returns number. This facility is open during normal office hours Monday to Friday only. After 14 days we will try to arrange a suitable remedy with the manufacturer or distributor however this will usually be as per the product warranty.

We politely request that you return goods in the original saleable condition. By all means take watches out of the box and have a good look at them as you would do in a shop but as many have protective seals on HRM straps, watch faces and the back of the watch we would appreciate it if you did not take these off. You are not obliged to do this but if you don’t like the look of the product or have been bought the same model as a gift it would help us a great deal if we were able to put that product straight back into stock. Thank you.

WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations
Each EU Member State now has a legal obligation to minimise the disposal of WEEE in landfill sites. The broad aim of the WEEE regulations is to address the environmental impacts of electrical and electronic equipment when it reaches the end of its life. We all have a responsibility to contributing to the reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery of WEEE under these Regulations. Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where lead and other toxins contained in the electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination which can lead to negative effects on human health and the environment. Electrical and Electronic Equipment that was made after 13th August 2005 should display the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging or product. The purpose of the symbol is to encourage householders to dispose of their WEEE separately from household waste.
What can you do?
If your old machine is still working, do you know somebody who would like to use it? There are many organisations such as schools, clubs, residential homes etc. who would be very happy to have the use of your old equipment.
In addition there are organisations that will reuse and repair electrical and electronic equipment, and some even run "cash for recycling" schemes. click here to find a list of waste electrical reuse charities and networks.
If your old equipment is no longer useful, please recycle it.
Alternatively, as a distributor we are committed to reducing the amount of WEEE that goes in to land fill. We are doing our bit for the environment by offering free take-back on a like for like basis when you purchase a new product from us. This means, for example that if you buy a new heart rate monitor from us, you can return your old heart rate monitor to us and we will arrange appropriate disposal of the old unit. (Please note it must be a similar product - e.g. an old heart rate monitor for a new one, etc.) This must be arranged with us at the time of placing an order with us for the new product, so if you would like to do this please call us on 01949 898205 for details of where to deliver your old product.
