My shirt size is "M" and this strap fits fine on me, considering that I used it totally extended, so don't be fooled by the XXL size. Buy only the X - XS only if you are really skinny.

Also be aware that this replacement strap can't not be used with the old transmitters (T31 or T61), I know is obvious, but just in case.

If your Polar wrist watch came with one of the old transmitters, you should seriously consider changing it for the Wearlink. One big improvement from the original transmitters (T31 or T61 transmitters) is that with this model (the Wearlink) you only have to buy a new battery and replace it once they ran out and your transmitter is ready to use again. With the original ones you have to buy a new transmitter every time the battery dies, since the whole structure is sealed. So if your Polar wrist watch came with the T31 or T61, wait until the battery is finished and buy the Wearlink transmitter instead, you will save a lot of money over the years (compare the 39.95 US$ that the T31 or T61 cost vs the cost of a replacement battery).

The other big advantage is that the Wearlink transmitter is more confortable to wear, since it adapts better to the shape of your body since even the electrodes are flexible and are embedded in the fabric. Being flexible and all makes it easier to storage it your pocket when your finish training or if you are traveling.

In summary a great product for your Polar HRM, and a smart improvement if it is time to replace your old transmitter. Don't buy another T31 or T61, buy this one instead.

I run with my Polar six days a week, and probably train about ten hour a week with it. I used to have the T31 with my first Polar (the M61) so I can tell you first hand the Wearlink is far better. In summary more confortable, easier to wash, and a money saver. I was more than happy to trow the old one away after I bought this one.

I am currently using a Garmin Edge 705 while cycling. The Garmin strap was giving an indication of heart rate spiking and it was suggested that I either purchase a new Garmin strap which comes complete with the HR transmitter for around $69.00 or use the Polar Wearlink Resplacement strap for around $17.00 and is interchangeable with the Garmin transmitter.

It is working beautifully. The Garmin HR transmitter snaps right on and the HR spikes are gone. I get perfect HR readings. It is comfortable, easy to take on and off.

I am planning to purchase another one to keep as a spare.

I bought this Wearlink+ strap to replace the strap that came with my FT60 heart rate monitor. The FT60 originally came with the M-XXL strap, which had an okay fit, but I replaced it with the XS-S strap.

The new strap works with the FT60 and fits comfortably, so I'm glad that I went with the smaller size. However, people between sizes may want to go up to the M-XXL strap. The XS-S strap says it fits 21" - 38". My ribcage is 29" and the strap fits comfortably when it is almost completely extended. It seems like it might be too tight for someone with a 38" ribcage.

My 2-3 year old polar was not working properly. Would not pick up a signal, or if it did it showed my HR at 216 BPM. I changed out the transmitter battery, no change. I changed out the watch battery, no change. I got this strap and now my polar works as good as new. So if you polar HR monitor is acting flaky get this. Kudos to Polar for not charging a rip-off price for this essential item.

I was on the verge of buying a new HRM as my Polar F11 has been acting completely flaky lately. I've had it for about 3 years and within the past few months the watch was picking up odd readings, either way too high or low or nothing at all. It was a crap shoot weather it would work properly or not. Changed batteries in both the watch and the transmitter, no help. Per another review here, appears a new chest strap was the answer. Sure thing, HRM seems to be working great. Heck of a lot better spending less than $20 to get it working again than spending $120 for a whole new unit.

I'm so frustrated. I'm on my second Polar Wearlink Strap and this time after only a few weeks I'm getting readings that are either 00 or 220+ BPM. Honestly, I think I should be dead with these readings. I've called Polar and their answer is always the same. Because I don't have access to a washing machine and cannot machine wash my strap after every 5 uses, then it's my fault the strap is failing. My first strap failed after 3 months and I was only rinsing it in the sink. My second strap I consistently gave a good washing after every single use and it failed even sooner. A friend of mine said hers didn't start to fail until AFTER she put it in the washing machine. Personally I think the straps aren't as good as they should be and Polar saying we have to wash it is just their way of not standing by their product. I can't continue to buy $14 straps every 3 weeks in order to get my HRM to work properly. Polar should stand by their product and get to the bottom of this rather than blame their faulty equipment on the customer.

I've been using Polar HRMs for 13 years, and this is the first backwards step I've seen.

My complaint is not in performance (as long as the product does not fall apart) but in the increase in complexity and consequent number of points of failure. And the failure of many of those parts.

For some history, the old chest (T31) transmitter was a single piece of composite material (the transmitter was internal and did not require a battery) and a simple strap that connected by two twist-snap locks. No external batteries, no pads that had to be soaking wet, no sewn-on loops of different stuff for a bra-type connection, no snap on transmitter. In short, it went from being about 3 pieces of material to being something like 8.

For all I know it's partially outsourcing, but when my first Polar HRM (1998) chest strap literally fell apart due to old age, the replacement T31 was a Chinese manufacture, as are the "Wearlink" versions now being sold. My 1998 Polar still works, but the LED died, so I went to the S725X when I upgraded, which included the Wearlink strap and it's snap-in transmitter.

The original out of the box unit was OK for about a month before it went psychotic. It often displayed HR of zero, or would take fantastic jumps of 49-60 BPM out of the blue, and stay at unrealistically elevated HR for minutes at a time before dropping from say 188, back to 128.

So I replaced the battery in the transmitter, and it seemed to work OK for a while, then the same stuff started again, so I ordered a couple of more straps, and for a while got better performance, until they started falling apart.
