What is the difference between Garmin HRM-Pro and Tri?
In short, the Garmin HRM-Pro is just the HRM-Tri with the ability to transmit Bluetooth Low Energy as well as ANT+ meaning you can pair this up with almost any device. The Bluetooth functionality works the same as the HMR-Dual, however, that lacks any run dynamics.
Can I use HRM-run for swimming?
HR Strap Comparisons: Remember the HRM-TRI is designed for open-water use, cycling, and running. The reason it’s not designed for pool usage is that it doesn’t have enough ‘stick’ to hold to your body when you push off the wall. The HRM-SWIM can certainly be worn on a run or bike.
Can I use Garmin HRM-run for cycling?
Does the HRM-RUN provide pedaling cadence while cycling? No, it does not. During cycling it just provides heart rate related metrics.
Is the Garmin chest strap worth it?
Having the strap will give you a lot more accuracy on the data. The wrist is good for rough measurement throughout the day, but very off during activities.
Can you use Garmin HRM without watch?
With the addition of offline memory, you can now use Garmin HRM-PRO without having your watch nearby – and without losing the data. The Garmin HRM-PRO stores the data and uploads it to your device and /or your Garmin Connect App, as soon as these are connected again.
Is ANT+ better than Bluetooth?
Bluetooth Smart Communication Because of Bluetooths communication protocol it can transmit data faster than ANT+, roughly 64x per second, 16x faster than ANT+. When using Bluetooth, once a connection between two devices has been made, no other bluetooth accessories can connect to the same device.
Can I wear my Garmin in the pool?

Does fitbit have a chest strap?
Of all the different types of heart-rate monitors out there, chest straps are some of the best for distance athletes because they tend to get more accurate heart-rate data readings than a wrist monitor, armband or traditional fitness tracker (like a Fitbit Versa or Fitbit Charge).
