One more Garmin accessory for your collection

HR data can help you monitor workout effort to ensure that your hard days are sufficiently hard and that your easy days are sufficiently easy. If you're not training with power, HR data is better than nothing. If you have a Garmin Edge, you might as well spend a little more for the HR strap.

Regarding fit, this strap is comparable to Timex, Polar, etc. It has a rubber and plastic body, with an elastic strap. It might feel uncomfortable at first, but once you get going you barely notice you're wearing it.

Do not neglect to spit or apply some other fluid on the strap's conductive sections before you put this on. The strap's electronics need a liquid medium to pickup and transmit heartbeat signals to your head unit. Ambient humidity is also a crucial variable, so you may notice erratic data readings in extremely dry conditions (high-performance/wicking fabrics reportedly generate static, which can compromise the electronic signals).

You need this to improve your performance!

Garmin Edge 800 was a powerful tool to improve my training but without a heart rate monitor it wouldn't be so powerful. Heart rate monitor is the key of my training nowadays.
