I wasn’t planning on doing a review of the chest heart rate monitor (HRM) I purchased about a month ago to replace a Garmin chest HRM that I was unable to replace the battery in but I’ve been so impressed with the inexpensive GOLife HRM that I thought I would give it some good press.
The GOLife chest HRM has worked well with both apps on my phone including MapMyRun and my Garmin Vivoactive. Actually, I prefer it over the Garmin strap I was using before. It’s much more comfortable and I don’t have to pre-wet the sensor or use transmission gel to get it to pick up my heart rate. That is so nice! I hated putting on a cold, clammy strap that strangled me. Thus, I didn’t use that Garmin strap very often.
I am using this one much more and I hardly notice it during a workout. In fact, I even forgot I was wearing it after a workout a couple nights ago and that would have never happened with the old strap. Believe me. I always knew when I was wearing that thing.
Anyway, I just wanted to share with you what has turned out to be a good inexpensive replacement HRM strap. I can’t speak for long-term durability just yet but so far, so good!
