Pairs perfectly with Garmin Forerunner 230

Bought this to supplement my new Garmin Forerunner 230. Initial setup took about 5 minutes and 2 tries, but now it connects to my Forerunner immediately when I am about to head out for a run. I do wet the sensors (with a drop of spit, honestly) but I sweat so much during my runs that it’s probably not even necessary. Heart rate seems accurate but my running coach has cautioned me against worrying about “zones” and “max HR” without an actual treadmill/bike test with a cardiologist. I use it more so for calorie calculations and seeing how much my HR goes up on hills or during speed work.

This Heart Rate Monitor works well with the Garmin Vivoactive watch. It paired with the watch without issue and after that the watch has had no problems recognizing the monitor.

Works great with my Vivofit

Works great with my Vivofit, I just had to enable the heart HR screen in the Garmin app. What I find works best is if I put it on and then splash a little water on my skin where the sensors are located. It usually connects and updates right away if I do this. If I don’t do this, it might take a minute or more to give me a reliable hr. Should have bought one long ago. It takes the guesswork out of exercising.

I actually like this heart rate monitor better than Garmin’s “Premium” soft strap model for several reasons:

works great, tied to my Android with Endomodo

Heart strap has been almost perfect in operation, only a few drop outs while running. The key is to wet your skin with water and the sensor pads before starting the workout. I’ve only had to re-apply a few times during longer work outs. I get a constant and accurate read-out into my Endomondo Sports Tracker app every day. Highly recommended.

Compatible with the Concept2 PM4 console for indoor rowing.

This is a nice ANT+ HR monitor. It senses well, fits comfortably on me, and has held up to repeated use & wash. I’m still on the original battery after about 90 hours of use.

Good quality, pairs well and holds a connection!

I prefer this strap over the standard Garmin strap. This seems to wear better and a huge difference is it doesn’t have contacts (where the battery connects with the belt). On previous straps I’ve had (not this strap), these have started to rust, usually after a few years.

This is working great with my Samsung S5 and the SHealth app

This is working great with my Samsung S5 and the SHealth app. I don’t know if this is necessary but to get it working I had to turn on bluetooth. I got in to the Samsung app and start a circuit workout, click at the top right, and chick accessories, then click scan. I have to be wearing it before it will register anything in the app. I have tried all of the watches and none of them are accurate. This is the only accurate HRM I have ever used.
