The first time I tried mine, I did it dry and it still picked up just fine.
Maybe your transmitter is running low on juice? Or maybe there's a buildup from sweat on the strap? Not sure what brand you have (mine says its machine washable @40C/104F), but you can try washing it with a bit of soap to get any buildup off.
And like Roxie linked, there are gels you can use; I saw a bunch on amazon when I was looking for my HRM in the suggestion section between the product and reviews.

I've never had an issue with my HRM not tracking right, even after I wet it and it dries out.

You can just wet it under the faucet before putting it on.

I use a hrm and have found it has to be wet to pickup the heart, now with this said I used to sweat alot, but now not so much. I am wondering if there is some sort of gel or device that will enhance the signal from chest to receiver. This is a polar ft7 and works good with the exception of having to be wet to pickup hr emoticon emoticon emoticon
