Posted on

Considering using this while backcountry skiing. Would the signal from this heart rate monitor interfere with the one from my avalanche beacon? I'm a little worried because both transmitters would be pretty close to one another (right in the center of my chest).

Best Answer Responded on

It can interfere. The latest studies I've seen is that the interference drops off significantly beyond 30cm of separation so you may be better off keeping your beacon in your zippered thigh pocket. After I read those studies and saw a few videos I honestly stopped keeping my cell phone on at all, stopped using a HR monitor, but have kept a GPS watch (Ambit) while touring. I figure the watch is pretty far from my beacon in my pocket and its only one source of interference rather than three. I was mostly using the HR monitor to keep track of calorie expenditure but I ended up going back over my logs from the last few seasons and found that almost without fail I was burning 1 calorie per vertical meter throughout the season, so I just use my vertical as a basis of energy expenditure at this point. Hope that helps.

This is the most recent article on the subject that I read:
http://www.mtavalanche.com/blog/do-phones-interfere-avalanche-beacons

It shows interference intensity by product and the effect of distance.

This might be getting a little too specific, but it looks like you two are talking about different things. Jordan seems to be interested in the potential for the HRM strap to interfere with his beacon while in transmit mode while Arthur is referring to search mode.

Your heart rate monitor isn't going to keep your buddies from finding you, but it might interfere with searching for them if they are buried. Arthur's advice is probably good.

Nice work getting into shape! Everybody has got to start somewhere and tracking your progress will be a fun way to stay motivated.

This strap version is in size S-L (bust measurement 62 - 110 cm / 24,4 - 43,3 in).

I have a Precor 9.21 with a heart monitor. It came with a Suunto belt(a plastic whole chest band type). I think the belt is dead. I tried to use a Polar T31 coded unit but the treadmill hasnt picked it up at all. (Just see HR a couple of times on the display and nothing). Any way to find out if this is compatible with the Precore 9.21?

Have you tried replacing the battery in the chest strap? It should us a CR2032 battery, available at most grocery stores.

Great Use, Don't Overtighten

I use this belt normally for most anything that requires physical exertion and I definitely have my loves and hates about it.

The transmission is very strong with watch applications and only will not get read when the battery is pretty much dead. The front module being smaller than normal heart rate belts does increase the comfort for sure.

That being said, the clasp is a bit fragile. Over tightening over time will wear out the band and if you have it super tight, there is a chance of clasp failure.

The Suunto Dual Comfort Belt will work great if you remember to keep it slightly less tight than normal, which is okay as the strength of transmission is more than adequate.

Great fit, way better than the old style. Suunto is great for ultrarunning; batteries last better than rechargables.

hello,
my first strap broke. i bought new strap but the problem is the i don't get no signal from it - should it be synchronized? if yes, how?
tnx.

Depending on the HR monitor you are using you should be able to synchronize this belt in the settings on your device. I would suggest checking the owners manual or calling customer support.

Does the Job With Improved Comfort

The original belt on my T6 crapped out about 6 months ago, so I decided to upgrade to the Dual Belt and it ended up being a great decision. Suunto incorporated less hard plastic to improve comfort and it certainly does that. It is easier to forget it's there.Two caveats come with this belt though. I kind of had to fudge with battery a bit (take the casing off and physically press the battery down) to get it paired with my T6. It was great once it got paired though. The other is one needs to be careful in how tight the belt is around the chest. I see a lot of reviews where people say their broke within a few weeks and looking the design of the belt, this is probably the main reason for that happening. All in all, a great improvement on the comfort of heart rate transmission belts.

Posted on

My second Suunto "comfort belt" just broke at the same place (one of the two little plastic tabs that keeps the belt closed around your chest) -- each is lasting about 6 months despite very gentle use. I now need a third heart belt to work with my T6C so I'm thinking about paying the extra for the dual belt instead of just getting a replacement comfort belt. Does the new dual belt have the same closure mechanism as the comfort belt (which I'd expect to break in a few months), or does it have a better closure design?

Responded on

same closure as the regular comfort belt. Dual just works with some gym equipment, otherwise, it's identical. You should be able to get a replacement at no charge from Suunto. Check the webpage under custy service

Responded on

it has the same closure and mine just broke, I love the belt but i am afraid it will break again.

I would like to order a Suunto belt for a X3 heart monitor. I do not need the sending device, just the belt. Any help? Is the lone belt available? Thanks, JOT

Responded on

Your X3 watch might be older than a year old, which would lead me to believe you have the stander HR strap. If so, it doesn't look like they have any of replacement straps only available on BC.

Any of the replacements offered here at BC would work if you wanted to replace strap/transmittor. The dual belt is not necessary for your watch model, the comfort would be best.

If you want to replace the strap only, check out http://www.suuntowatches.com/Suunto-Strap-HR.pro

Highly recommended

Great heart rate monitor strap. Very comfortable and lightweight. Been using for a month and haven't had any trouble with interference and the abnormally high heart rate readings I've experienced in the past with other straps.
