Get a quality workout with our heart rate monitor. When worn around your chest during an activity, it wirelessly transmits your heart rate to your compatible device for instant feedback on how hard you’re working.
The front part of the strap contains the heart rate module and is made of flexible plastic. The part of the strap that goes around your back is made of a soft fabric and is adjustable to your size.
Use and care of the heart rate monitor is a snap. Once it's paired with your compatible device the first time, it will automatically recognize it each time. The fabric of the strap can be removed and hand-washed as often as needed.

Here are the reasons:
1) Super durable,I've had this one for years. The soft straps wind up breaking after a few months of use or just cease to read well.
2) The batter is very easy to change. The biggest problem with the soft strap monitors is that when it comes time to replace the battery you need to unscrew these little baby screws from the device. The screws are so weak and it's very easy to strip them. This heart rate strap has a very simple design,any coin can be used to unscrew the device to get to the battery. Stripping is not possible unless you purposely do it.
3) Maybe it's just me but I get better readings using the hard strap vs the soft strap.
4) Cheaper than soft strap. I know people tend to go for the lightest high tech thing out there,but this thing is solid. Yes you can feel it on your chest more than a soft strap,but who cares. Eventually you get used to it.
This comes from someone who runs between 60-75 miles a week depending on the time of the year
1. It costs $18 less.
2. The battery is much easier to change.
3. The "soft" straps on the more expensive "Premium" model don't stay flat, and easily twist.
Does not pair with any current Garmin ANT + apps on Google Play. Compatible App "Garmin Fit" (which supposedly picks up the ANT + signal direct to the android phone) DOES NOT EXIST. All other apps fail to recognize.. Telephone wait time is 56 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes and telephone number has to be found through internet search.
The Wahoo TICKR app will identify the chest straps ANT + signal directly to my phone. Not only that, but it would give me an accurate heart rate with a 4 bar signal!. Because all I was looking for was an accurate heart rate monitor for when I was on an elliptical or treadmill, for less than $15 this will work for me. I just shut off automatic updates on the Wahoo app just in case Wahoo gets tired of supporting Garmin's gear..
- Body hair is trimmed
- Used electrode gel
- inserted a new battery
- Tried it with different amounts of tightness and kept readjusting trying to find a workable position.
In the end, I have junk that will only connect on and off on roughly 10 second intervals, and the reading it gives is completely inaccurate.
Do not buy this. I previously owned the softstrap that worked well, but gave up after 3 years. Consider getting one of those or something from another brand.
