This sensor has a real poor battery replacement design using four very very tiny screws to hold the back cover in place unlike all their other sensors that have easy to turn and pop off backs. I get about one year out of the battery and the screws are either impossible to get out (do not drop them) or they strip out when replaced. I have to glue the back on with silicone glue as all the screws or their mounts have been damaged over time.
Other than the pathetic battery design it seems to work well and the strap is washable. If the battery design would have been sensibly designed I would given it five stars.
I bought this to use with TrainerRoad. I only have a dumb trainer, so triangulating between my heart rate, my cadence, and my "speed" is an important element of getting an accurate FTP and workout. It connected to my iPad without me even having to set it up or search for it. Glad to have it aboard!
After many years of salt and sweat my first transmitter finally failed. Don't know if it was merely the snap-on unit or the strap itself, but I grabbed a new one anyway when BTD had a recent sale. The newest one seems to stay in place even better than the last one, which is key. The very first units from years back were stiff and slippery and often slid down if not cinched uncomfortably tight.
My old Garmin HRM wore out. I bought the new Garmin Dual Heart Rate Monitor to replace it. I couldnt be happier. One plus this new HRM works with Zwift and your heart rate shows on the screen and also in Zwift Companion app. The old Ant monitor was not recognized by Zwift.
The strap on my old Garmin HRM wore out. Ordered this as a replacement.
Nice that Zwift now recognized my HRM and both Zwift and Zwift Companion now display heart rate information. It wouldnt recognize the Anti information.
I have done several rides and this product works perfectly.
This is my wifeï¿½s first chest strap HR monitor. It fits her well and gives her accurate legible HR data on her Garmin. She tried using her Apple Watch but it was too hard to read while riding, less accurate and couldnï¿½t be displayed on her Garmin.
I utilize this HRM both indoors on stationary rides, as well as on the bike when i'm doing specific training; for an indication of effort.
Ordered this for my partner. It paired quickly with his Edge 520, but then would read HR pretty inconsistently the first few rides even after putting a little water on the strap. After 5+ rides, it works fine now. Kind of bizarre considering that I never had an issue with my older Garmin HR monitor.
We have been a Garmin family for years. I use my Dual HRM with a Garmin Edge for cycling. I purchased the Dual HRM for spin classes and noticed that every so often my heart rate was dropping out. A check of the HRM revealed that all four (4) screws had cracks around the plastic and was being held in place by the snaps and the strap.
The initial monitor has seen its best day. It was getting a little ragged and I could not adjust it to maintain good contact. So a new one was in order. Good price, quick shipping and it arrived very quickly. A good product
and a good company to do business with.
I've had three of these now (one was the older version). The last two duals that I have stopped working after a few days and was returned for one that worked for about a year. Both of them stopped working in the same way, that is the heart rate sent was stuck at 73 bpm. No adjustments of the straps helped. I was glad Garmin replaced the first one for free, but now I doubt they will replace the second one since I've had it for about a year.
I wear the HRM for cycling. I have worn it 4 time and it works great.
My main reason for purchasing the HRM is, because I had a heart attack and I need to keep an eye on my heart rate. So far, its been working great for me.
Has worked great so far with no issues. Switched to this after my polar h10 started bugging out. Which was after my h7 stopped working. Been very happy with it, only annoying thing is tightening it and it hooks on the right side of your chest which feels awkward for myself being right handed.
