Connecting and using the heart rate monitor
Pairing your compatible Garmin device with the heart rate monitor is easy and after pairing for the first time, it will then subsequently connect automatically.
The heart rate monitor will operate within a 3 metre range from the Garmin device that you've paired it with.
The heart rate monitor consists of two parts. The front part of heart rate monitor is made of flexible plastic which makes it comfortable to wear. The rear of the monitor is a soft fabric which is then adjustable to your size.
If you would like a heart rate monitor with an even softer strap for more comfortable fit then we recommend that you buy the premium heart rate monitor instead.
Caring for your heart rate monitor
When using the heart rate monitor it may build up with sweat and salt stopping it from functioning properly making heart rate readings inaccurate. For this reason the strap can be removed from the heart rate monitor and it is recommended that you rinse the strap in water after every use. Garmin recommend the strap should be washed after every 7 uses. However the strap should not be put in to a tumble dryer.
Using the heart rate monitor with other devices/fitness equipment
You can also connect the Garmin heart rate monitor to some fitness equipment. Look out for the "ANT+ Link Here" logo on compatible equipment. When using with other devices and equipment the operating range of the heart rate monitor is 3 metres. Please note: Although the heart rate monitor is water resistant to 10 metres the heart rate monitor will not operate while swimming.
The battery life is approximately 3 years based on a usage of 1 hour per day.
IMPORTANT: If used/worn for an extended period of time, the heart rate monitor may cause chafing.
