Hi can I ask which heart rate monitors you all use and which is easiest to set up? Would you advise I get one? Thanks
I have a Wahoo Tickr. I’ve had the same one for 4 years and have never had any problems with it.
I have Wahoos also and prefer them over Garmin. I have the chest strap for when I ride outside and the arm band for indoors. Love both!
another vote for the wahoo arm band. I’ve had mine for nearly 4 years as well and I love love love it. It’s so easy to use and super accurate. I wore it to my stress test at my cardiologists and the data matched exactly to their fancy machine. You have to make sure to put it up on your arm by the elbow for best results
I also use the wahoo. Had a garmin and it just wasn’t that good. Used a timex for years but it finally gave up the ghost. I like that the wahoo is dual channel so my laptop connects to it via ant+ (along with my trainer) and it also connects to my watch via Bluetooth (along with my pedals).
I have a Wahoo Tickr, but I never use it because I don’t find it as comfortable as the Garmin Tri. I am on my second Garmin Tri, though, so maybe it isn’t as durable. For indoor training, I wear Polar OH1, which is also comfortable. I bought because DC Rainmaker said it was very accurate. It’s rechargeable, and only lasts about 10 hours, but that’s fine for indoor workouts.
I use a Garmin for outdoor and Coontz for indoor. I have not had to replace either one and have been using them both for a few years. Lots of miles and workouts and sweating.
