Is anyone using a non garmin ant + compatible hrm chest strap and if so how reliable do you find it?

Mio Fuse, measures heart rate on the wrist. Much more comfy than a chest strap. Usually pretty reliable – it depends on the position on the wrist, it needs to be fairly tight.Posted 3 years ago
Wahoo Tickr here as it does both Bluetooth and Ant+. Works perfectly. I don’t use it for running though, as it doesn’t do the fancy running metrics that the Garmin one does.Posted 3 years ago
Never got any HR strap to work, it’s probably to do with the wookie look. Have a HR watch with the optical not as accurate but good enough an does loads more. That and I never remembered to find the HR strap most rides, watch is always therePosted 3 years ago

Powercal has been flawless for several years. Have a bluetooth Tickr as well. The Garmin unit failed miserably.
The funny thing is the Garmin and the Powercal are basically the same.Posted 3 years ago
I get about 18 months from a Garmin strap. Their warranty is awesome though, they’ll just post out a new strap each time one stops working.
Many people recommend the Schosche optical strap. Wrist mounted optical tends to lock on to cadence instead of heart rate in marginal conditions.Posted 3 years ago

I have one and love it but never use it when riding any more as it is a bit too flaky when suddenly accelerating up hill or anything else where the hr gets high quickly. Its great for running though as long as it isn’t too coldPosted 3 years ago
