Afternoon Guys,

I use a Garmin Edge 520 to track my rides and would like to start tracking my HR too.

I don't have a strap, but do own a Garmin Forerunner 235 watch which tracks HR. Could I pair the watch to the Edge 520?
Any advice is appreciated.

Yes, if you have the FR235 with the optical HR sensor, then HR signal can be broadcast to your Edge 520.

Here's how: http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/webhelp/ ... CD341.html

I am using Garmin vivoactive HR to broadcast heart rate to my Fenix 3, and it works 85% of the time. The failing point is the VAHR sometimes fail to pick up heart rate for some reason.

I'm using a Mio Link as I don't like the chest heart rate monitors, plus it's easy to clean.

You can use nearly any HRM with ANT+ or Bluetooth. I use a Geonaute (works reliably and has a machine washable strap) which is available at Decathlon and very reasonably priced, since my original Garmin HRM unit stopped working.

Had the Garmin premium strap, had the original Garmin strap... both had issues after a while. Then I tried the Mio optical sensor. Less comfortable for me than a chest monitor. Now I'm using the Wahoo sensor and it's been perfect for the 4 months I've had it.
