Technical Details


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.

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.

The main advantage of the Garmin premium HRM with the soft strap is that it is more soft and comfortable than the standard all plastic Garmin HRM which I also own. I don’t even notice that I’m wearing it and it’s especially nice when it’s cold out and you don’t have to put that cold hard plastic up against your skin. The connecting clasp is easy to use and secure. The monitor snaps off the strap easily so you can clean the strap or change the battery but changing the battery is a real pain. You need a very tiny screwdriver and the screws are factory installed so tight that you’ll strip your screwdriver trying to get the four screws loosened. A big advantage of the standard HRM is that on the standard strap you can simply use a coin or a regular sized screwdriver to open the battery compartment. That’s a big plus. Reliability on the premium soft strap HRM for the first two years was good. I didn’t have any issues. Transmission was solid and continuous and I didn’t need to use any special electrode cream. But after two years and four months my HRM started reading inaccurately and transmitting intermittently. Shortly after that it quit working completely. I of course replaced the battery and used HRM cream but nothing worked. For the price this product should have worked longer but that appears to be typical for Garmin heart rate monitors because my standard one also quit working after a few years. Unfortunately, it appears that I have to buy my third HRM and I don’t see any alternatives to the two Garmin straps. I’ll buy the standard version due to it’s lower price and easier battery change.

First, I am using this with a Garmin Forerunner 220. It works fine but is no better at heart rate monitoring than my Polar heart rate monitor (both occasionally give false spikes and dips). The GPS accuracy seems to be fine (not super accurate but okay). The problem (and why I am giving the replacement part 1 star) is that you cannot easily replace the battery on the sensor module. The battery will die without warning and then you need to replace it. There are four small screws that strip easily and it is somewhat random as to whether you can get them out or not (I could not so I am buying a new strap and module). Complete crap design when almost everyone else uses a simple to open module (typically they open with a coin). I figure I will try this once and then the whole watch goes in the garbage and I will buy something that is not intentionally trying to screw the user. Disappointing but I have a long memory and it isn't likely that I will be be buying another Garmin product.

I have given up on all of Garmin's newer HRM straps. "Version 2", soft strap like the current one, but all black, and no "advanced contact surfaces", was the worst. If I sweated too much, it would drop off, sweat too little, and drop off. The premium soft strap that came with the Edge 510, worked better for a while, then it started showing either 1/2, 1/3 or no heart rate, no matter gel or sweat. I called and had them send me a new strap and sensor, but I went back to my very first Garmin strap, a completely different design, and not as comfortable, but so much more reliable. Unfortunately, it's no longer available, so I hope mine lasts a long time.
