Scosche RHYTHM+

I have been using this for a year or two now. Never an issue, pairs easily and stays paired. The Garmin bands never worked well for me.

Polar H10. The smallest of the current chest straps and also the most comfortable. The Polar Pro Soft Strap can be purchased separately and used with Garmin sensors as well.

My girlfriend had a lot of issues using her Wahoo Tickr-Run in combination with a Garmin Smartwatch.

Personally I have beent using the Wahoo Tickr-X ... e-monitor/ in combination with my Pioneer SGX-CA500 ... em-review/ for a long time, but the cycling computer is replaced with a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt. Guess what ... HR is not showing up in the Wahoo combination of products. :-)

I've ended up replacing the Wahoo Tickr-X with a 4iiii Viiiiva ... t-bridge/ and using it flawelessly with the Wahoo Elemnt Bolt now. Can't really comment on the battery-life yet.

Back on subject. I had to replace my original Tickr last week as the 'stud' connector between the strap and strap had failed due to corrosion.

I cannot complain as I have had many years of use both inside and outside ridings. I bought a new design Tickr as a replacement.

Polar OH1+. Doesn't miss a beat, armband instead of chest strap. I find it way more comfortable.
