    Designed to work with all the newest monitors on the market, Garmin’s Premium Heart Rate Monitor Strap uses an ANT+ signal to work with nearly all watches and CPUs, like PowerTap and Joule, though you'll probably need to run the "find" feature in order to sync up. An upgrade from the standard strap that comes with your 500 or 705 Garmin, this is smaller, lighter, and more flexible. It’s perfect for the Garmin FR60, the Forerunner watches, and the Edge series bike-mounted computers. The total claimed weight of the strap is 51g.

    Follow the washing instructions

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I think I've had about 10 of these over the last 6 or so years. Be sure to rinse the strap every use, but remove the thingy first. The thingy can't be submerged. And I've had the same experience replacing the battery as William down below - very finicky TINY screws. Otherwise, it's a good strap.

    Good HR monitor

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my second Garmin HR monitor of this style. The strap is soft and seems to be accurate- almost the same as the HR monitor on my Garmin Fenix watch. The strap is easy to clean and can be replaced when worn out. I purchased the second one after 3-4 years of use when the monitor stopped working. I replaced the batteries but still did not work. The second was easy to sync with wahoo and Garmin cycling computers

    Good HR strap

      I bought this for my girlfriend and here is her review:

      I've used Garmin HR straps before and this one works just as well as they have in the past. In addition to using it for HR I was hoping to use it for more accurate calorie counting. After I used it the first time I noticed that the calories burned was WAY different than what I was getting without the HR strap. After some reading, turns out using HR straps is not very accurate or reliable across the board, no matter which brand you go with. So, who knows if what it says is right or not.


      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Awesome addition to your smart watch or devices to get a more accurate reading of your heart rate. Can be a bit weird at first to have that strapped to you, but you get used to it pretty quickly.

      Great strap, until the battery dies . .

      • Fit: True to size

      I think this is the best strap on the market, with one very important reservation. It's comfortable. It's accurate. It pairs easily with Garmin cycling computers. BUT . . . when the battery dies, it can be impossible to replace the battery. The four screws may or may not come out so that you can replace the battery. In my first strap, none of the four screws would come out. In my second strap, two would come out, two would not. I tried muscle, WD40, all sizes of screw drivers. Nothing worked. Replacing a heart rate strap every time the battery dies is not smart. So, I'm looking for a strap with replaceable batteries.

      Accurate and stays in place

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have been using Garmin product for many years, and realized that my son can benefit from using a HR monitor till I get a powermeter for him, I turned to the HR monitor that has worked well for me.
      This one stays in place and I have yet to experience any drops. I have had some interference when riding under major power lines, but otherwise it does a great job paired with my Garmin 820 and 520.
      If you have any questions about Garmin product feel free to reach out to me.

      Accurate HR Monitor

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought this so I can train based on my heart rate instead of pace or time. I have an older (about 5yrs old) Garmin 910XT and it works perfectly with my watch. I really like how quickly it links up and I think provides a more accurate HR than just using a wrist monitor.

      Works great!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I got this for use with Zwift, as well as my Garmin Edge 25 bike computer, and it works great. For some reason, Zwift didn't detect it the first time I tried, but it has been completely fine on subsequent attempts. That first time, I did not wet the strap ahead of time, but have always done so since; it seems to be necessary to really get a good reading. Overall, works great.

      Just what I wanted

        This is the first heart rate monitor I've owned, I was interested to see where my heart rate was on hard hikes and trail runs. The chest strap looked like it wouldn't be very comfortable, but I decided to try it due to most reviews saying you hardly notice it. And it's true you hardly notice it once you start going! This hrm was very easy to use and easily paired up with my garmin forerunner. I've used it twice now and it seems to be very effective, I'm definitely glad I decided to try it and I'd recommend it to anyone!

        Big upgrade from the plastic straps

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This strap has been out for a while but i just picked one up as my older plastic straps finally gave out. The elastic strap makes it way more comfortable and its hardly noticeable after a few minutes of riding.

        More comfortable

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This strap works perfectly, never had issues, and is a lot more comfortable than the older version of this strap. I lick my finger and wipe it on the two couple inch long sensors before I put it on and that has worked for me every time. After about 5 mins I forget I'm even wearing the thing.

        Dependable strap but no bluetooth

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I have 3 different HR straps, and I do have to say that this one is the most reliable (although it does crap out every now and then). However, the lack of bluetooth compatibility is a pretty big flaw, especially that many people now often track their runs/rides with a smartphone; there are other straps at a similar price point which offer dual ANT+/bluetooth functionality.

        Does what you'd expec

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Not a lot to say - exactly as expected. I knocked a star off because I don't find it to be the most comfortable on long runs, but that's probably a bit harsh because I'm not sure that any chest strap is going to be comfortable...

        Does the Garmin sensor on this strap have a coin twist slot for replacing the battery or does it require that 4 tiny screws be removed in order to replace the battery??? My current sensor/strap is the 4 screw version and the screws are stripped making it impossible to replace the battery. I bought it April, 2012 from Competitive Cyclist. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

        Best Answer

        The Garmin Premium Heart Rate Soft Strap uses the ANT+ communications protocol. It is compatible with all of the current Garmin fitness computers and likely most older models as well. Check to make sure your device uses ANT+ and you can be confident this strap will work.
