Product Description

Yes, there are plenty of heart rate monitor straps on the market these days. Not all monitor straps work with all watches/CPUs. The problem should be over now that the ANT+ signal of this Garmin Premium Heart Rate Soft Strap is received by most of the newest, highest tech gadgets on the market. Like PowerTap and Joule, though you'll probably need to run the "find" feature in order to sync up.This soft strap is an upgrade from the standard Garmin strap that comes with your 500 or 705. The unit is smaller, lighter, more flexible. It syncs perfectly with the Garmin FR60, the Forerunner series watches, and the Edge series bike-mounted computers.The claimed weight of the soft strap module is 18g, the strap's claimed weight is 33g for a total weight of 51g.

The strap is comfortable and I forget I am wearing it.

After going thru 2 versions of Garmin and a Polar HRM&strap, this one finally works!
John Ramsey
It is easy to clean and even works well without the contact gel.

After going thru 2 versions of Garmin and a Polar HRM&strap, this one finally works! I had been fed up with intermittent and erroneous heart rates, and no matter what I did (wet the pads, use electrode gel, etc.) there always would be crazy readings of 22 and even 222. This one worked fine right from the start. What's the difference between them all? This one has a shielding layer which mitigates the static electricity and interference that seemed to upset the other straps. It also has a 'polarity' - where you have the Right and Left side indicated as well as the shielding layer making contact to the skin. Garmin recommends to remove the transmitter module and wash in a regular washing machine after 7 uses, it would appear that a build up of sweat 'shorts out' the sensor pads and machine washing cleans up the salty sweat.

This is my third Garmin Heart Rate Monitor. I own the "old" style hard strap which came with my forerunner ages ago, and while it still works I've always found it a bit uncomfortable. The Premium strap which came with my 310XT was more comfortable, but it suffered from the heart rate spikes that so many people have complained about. I misplaced/lost that strap while travelling about a year ago, and have been making do with the old-style hard strap.

With the purchase of a Concept 2 erg and its PM4, it was time to find something comfortable again. I wavered between buying a the newest version of the Premium HRM strap and sensor or just going with the sensor and buying the Polar wearlink strap (a la DCRainmaker). I obviously went with the whole Garmin package, and I'm very happy. The strap is very comfortable and I have had no issues with it communicating with my 310XT or the PM4 on my Concept 2. I think the re-design with the silver fabric has helped solve the heart rate spiking problem.

If you've had issues with Garmin's older premium soft strap, are still committed to Garmin HRM products and ANT+, are in the market for a new one, I recommend this updated version.

(updated review below)

Original review: While this has a nice strap and a low profile sensor, the 4 Phillips screws that hold the battery cover in place are very small and very soft. The first thing I did when I received this from Amazon was check the battery, which requires removing the 4 screws on the back of the unit. I used a jewelers screwdriver and 3 of the 4 small screws came out relatively easily, but the 4th stripped the head and now can't be removed. Low quality screws with soft metal tend to do this, or the screw may have been over-tightened. Either way, this HRM will only be usable until the battery dies, which will be within a year. This is a very poor design or materials choice. I hope most units aren't like this, but you won't know until it's time to replace the battery. The unit will be out of warranty and then the user will be out another $50 because they'll need to buy a replacement HRM.

Other brands have a more sensible and easier to access battery door (e.g. coin twist door on the Cateye). Garmin is smarter that this and they should produce a higher quality product using better quality screws or design it in a way that doesn't require such small screws to be used. I'm very disappointed with them on this. I will be returning this HRM and looking for one that will last through multiple battery changes.

Update 3/31/14: I'm upping my review to 3 stars from 1. I prefer the slimmer design of this unit over some of the other brands I looked at, so I decided to give it another chance and ordered another one. I checked the screws on the back of the new unit to see if also had the same problem (soft/defective or stuck screw). This second one was fine and the screws all came out and went back in without any problem or damage.

I bought this in May 2014 from Amazon, looking for a reliable ANT+ chest strap heart monitor. It was inaccurate out of the box. When I say it was inaccurate, I am verifying by counting the pulse in my carotid artery and/or using a supplemental device.
It isn't consistently high---nor consistently low---in fact, sometimes it is spot on. But it is not accurate enough to be reliable such that the data can be counted on.
I have used this in conjunction with my Iphone 4 and Wahoo key with Digifit app. Digifit is pretty nice, by the way.
I have tried everything. I replaced the battery---yes I waited over a minute for it to fully discharge. I have washed it. I have rinsed it. I have soaked it when putting it on. I have used regular cotton shirts. Ugh....just when I think I'm going to get some consistency.....it blows up---either high or low. I'll check pulse at carotid....this afternoon I was walking and it displayed HR between 34-40 for ten minutes. I checked multiple times and HR was in 80's. Go figure. I adjusted it. I wet it again. No use. After 20 minutes it started giving accurate readings. It wasn't the sweat. Sometimes it reads accurately in the beginning and then inaccurate later. There is no rhyme or reason. I've recently changed the battery a second time in the less than one month I've owned it.
Enough about the product. Here is a bigger gripe that the product itself. I called Garmin Support last week for help. Julie offered the usual tips found in the owner's manual...which I've already addressed. She said they would send me a new one if I would send an email, which I promptly did. I never heard back so yesterday I called again and asked for status. George told me that he saw I had called last week and saw my email but it had not been handled yet.
