Fred, May 1, 2012 Very good easy to use
CM, April 16, 2012 I purchased this monitor as a replacement for the soft belt
monitor that comes with the Garmin Forerunner 610. The
original belt was reporting inaccurate pikes in the first
minutes of my runs. This one does not do that and appears to
be more precise. I also find it confortable.
MG, October 13, 2011 Purchased to replace an old one that last 5 years. Works
well the first 3 years. Should have replaced the strap
earlier. Must take care of the o-ring that seals the cover
of the battery case. If not, sweat gets in and it start to
not working properly. With good care, no issue. Worked
out-of-the box with an old EDGE-305.
Raymond, June 24, 2011 I bought this monitor for my Dakota 20. Pairing was a breeze : put it on
your chest, turn the Garmin Dakota on (works with other GPS too), go to
Setup / Fitness / Heart Rate Monitor / Search for new. Voilą, it's paired
The heart rate information can be displayed on the map screen, simply
touch one of the current info box (like speed, or distance) and change to
The information is also recorded along with track information. Quite
helpful if you want to follow your progress on a given trail, or to
compare how hard a trail was against others.
I am using RubiTrack for Mac to collect my exercise data and, however, if
I forget to erase the current track before I go, Rubitrack will sometimes
not display the heart information inside the tracks file.
All is not lost! If this happens, you simply need to visit Garmin Connect
to download the track from your GPS, and then export that same track to a
GPX file on your Mac. Garmin Connect seems to correct the data inside the
file and you can import this file into Rubitrack, this time, all the heart
information will be there.
I was afraid I would feel the strap on my chest all the time, but that's
not the case. Within 30 seconds of wearing it, you don't feel it anymore.
I mostly do biking, so maybe if I was running, that would be different,
but I don't think so. It's pretty solid fitting to my chest.
