Garmin HRM-Pro™ Premium Heart-rate Monitor with Dual Transmission and Running Dynamics, Black
About this deal
Long-story-short, if you just walk out the front door and start running, it won’t create a running activity/workout file from that by itself. For those in the Garmin ecosystem who are serious about their stats and improving technique, this offers an alternative, cheaper option than visiting a sports science lab.
The first atmosphere is at the surface, then every ten metres you go down adds another atmosphere of pressure. But as a new feature it introduces memory which makes you able to measure your heart rate without wearing your heart rate watch or using the Garmin Connect App. Once done, it’ll merge the data sets together, and you can get the full and clean data from the strap, as opposed to the watch’s wrist data.
Of course, if you’re lucky enough to live next to a lake or beach this isn’t going to be such a problem.
Somewhat like the Apple ecosystem, the integration on the HRM-PRO with existing Garmin watches just works, versus trying to cobble together data offloading or other pieces requires more parts from 3rd party straps. The reviews generally take a lot of hours to put together, so it’s a fair bit of work (and labor of love). If I was aiming to run with some sort of propulsion in the direction of a goal, I could see this being extremely interesting to track.The criminal trial for the murder of cyclist Moriah Wilson that has gripped the nation and cycling world alike gets underway in Austin, Texas, today. This is useful when swimming (since digital transmissions can’t penetrate more than a few centimeters through water), or in sports like football/soccer or others that don’t permit a watch to be worn.
