Anyone had this issue with Garmin HR strap?

Over the last week both my resting and training HR in 10 BPM higher than usual. At first I thought it was just fatigue or a little sickness. But yesterday it occured and then I had it checked by a nurse twice and a bloodpressure machine. And the 3 medically checked resting HR were in line with what I expect. But the Garmin still gave me 10 beats higher than usual.

Anyone has a take on this?

When was the last time you changed out your battery?

The strap has been purchased about one year ago.

I’ve had intermittent issues with cutout in the past, using dielectric grease in the strap/sensor contact points resolved.

When was the last time you washed the strap? A dirty strap can impact readings.


Ok wow didn’t know this just washed it and now it’s ok.

Thanks a lot .
