After finally killing the HR strap that came with my 705 (and having a short and very underwhelming run with a Premium Garmin HR strap - died in less than a year), I need a replacement.

Anyone tried a PRO SCIO W4.1

otherwise looking like I'll go a Suunto.

I replaced my Garmin strap with the Polar Soft Strap. There are rubber grommets around the contact points that you have to cut down flush with the contact points in order for the Garmin HR transmitter to snap in. No problems so far, been about 4 months.

To be explicit, I have the older one that came with the 705. Ie

The Premium one was thrown out, as it didn't work any more. So counts out using any part of that as a hybrid with a Polar strap.

Wouldn't the 705 still receive the same HR signal as say the Edge 500? If so, maybe you could just get the 500 HR transmitter and strap. :noidea:

:doh:

Yes, that's precisely my question. What ant+ compatible heart rate strap have people found to work well - comfort, longevity and function wise.

Sorry, I thought that was clear in the opening post...

I use this Motorola one.

It has worked well for me so far.


Also, it is quite comfortable.

You Pro's are hard on your equipment. :shock: I use the premium strap although with that said they seem to only last two years or so and then I'm buying another one. For me while its a PITA kits sort of like replacing worn out components on the bike.

Per twitter, I am using a Cyclops strap however I am using the Garmin pod with it as the Cyclops HRM died after some 400hrs. The Garmin pod clipped straight on.
