get back to discord where you belong lol
The battle of the HR straps
Garmin isn’t even on the meme ha.
I dunno, unless I disconnect my polar it’ll also eat batteries
I’ve only used Garmin straps for the last 6yrs. I have replaced the strap twice now, so on number three. But, it’s the same main unit/pod which I also periodically replace the battery. Also, when I need Bluetooth I use a Viiiiva HRM on my Garmin strap w/out issue.
That said, I don’t get the hate for the Garmin HRMs. Maybe it’s the newer ones and/or Bluetooth models On the other hand, the Wahoo HRM seems to really have issues garnering way more hate than the Garmin units online in the forums I frequent. Also, they get a lot of hate amongst friends in real life w/first hand experience.
Garmin strap user still using an HRM run from 2017? Plenty of use in salt water?
Where are you based? I see the Wahoo HRM hate all over the internet and I genuinely have no corresponding irl experience with it. Mine (admittedly 1st gen) has given me absolutely 0 issues over the years I’ve owned it and I’m even still on the original strap! People I speak to in person have all had good experiences too.
I wonder if there’s a discrepancy between what we get in the EU and what people get in the USA?
eta: yes I know I’m no longer EU, but I was when I bought my HRM.
Meme to keep the thread a meme thread (@midpack_memes on Instagram):
Hang on is there not a cycling gear and accessories thread to take the hrm conversation? Mostly for the Meme and Joke thread purists out there…
Yes, meme and joke topics here please.
Real discussion elsewhere.
PSA: Gear and accessories thread created as i think there was value in the HR strap battle discussion… happy to continue it there
I’m worried that might be lost on those not in the UK but I loved it
Yes I thought the same. For those unfamiliar with Only Fools And Horses they should google ‘Trigger’s broom’
