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.
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.
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.
Wait, so you post item incorrectly, description incorrectly, ship whatever you're trying to get rid of and then I have to pay more hoping I get a refund for the item only? Amazing!
EDIT: After researching and reading on Polar straps and chatting with one online retailer, apparently the WearLink+ strap that is shown in the pictures is discontinued. A SoftStrap is their new standard. This is listed as a replacement strap vs. substitute strap. Slight misinformation. By ordering this you will not receive the previous WearLink+ strap, but the substituted SoftStrap. I am not comparing the SoftStrap to the WearLink+ here. I'm simply informing that product is not shipped as shown.
