The HRM-Run heart rate monitor provides the most advanced running metrics to high-end Garmin Forerunner running watches. The strap is seamlessly comfortable and easily adjustable while the module is small, lightweight and fits entirely within the width strap.
So like the title says, this thing WAS great. I loved the running dynamics, but most of all, when I do weight lifting I like to know my HR as well. Because my Fenix 5 has issues with accurate HR readings when lifting weight, this was the solution. The running dynamics are great for when you care about your form and style. I'm going to say extremely accurate, I did tests when I was at the doctors, and the HR was within a beat of the machine. All of this would make me give it 5 stars, but after 4 months, it was time to replace the battery. Since replacing the battery, it doesn't pair or get discovered. I did what Garmin's lack of online support says to do, and instead went through their forums only finding suggestions for the older devices. Kind of a disappointment. For something designed to last for a few years, the value has basically come out to $20/month, just outside of the Garmin Warranty, I will not be replacing this for another $90. Thank you, but no thank you.
You can no longer remove the heart rate module off the strap. If the strap breaks then you are done. If the module breaks then you are done. Mine died after 3 months of use and Garmin is only willing to give me a new battery to fix it - yay. I had the previous HRM Run for my Garmin 620 watch - in fact I had 4 of them. Not the straps, but the actual modules. They worked great when the factory battery was inside but EVERY time I changed out the battery it would fail with 2-4 days. The replacement batteries would ALL drain immediately - as if it never turned off even when unplugged from the strap. I honestly feel there is some internal setting that if the factory battery drains or is replaced then the setting trips and all future batteries are just instantly drained. I suspect the same crap with these bands and modules. I honestly wish to never buy another Garmin product just because of how crappy these straps have been.
I've had mine for 18 months. I've replaced the battery a couple of times (pretty long life actually). But now, the heart rate is spiking in the mid 240s-250s. I never get an accurate reading. I really thought I had to have some kind of heart issue after my last run showed an average heart rate of 215 with a max HR of 253! Since I didn't look at my heart rate until I synced after the run, I couldn't manually verify the reading. I took a couple days off (I was sucking wind during the run and thought I was getting sick) and then tried again. As soon as I put the HRM on, it started saying I was at 244 bpm. I hadn't even started to run. I immediately pulled it off and threw it in my office and my wrist HR was down in the 60s. I then changed the batter in the strap. Still, it read in the 240s at rest. I then tried some strange thing that a forum said to do about flipping the battery around for a minute, then taking it out, etc. Still, it is reading in the mid-240s at rest. It is very disappointing that I have to fork out another $75 for a new one after just 18 months. I didn't even use it every day as I was injured for several months during that time and couldn't run at all. It gives great data when it works, but unfortunately, it just doesn't last very long. For how expensive it is, I would hope it would last longer.
This worked great while the battery lasted. I replaced the battery when the original one died and the strap worked for one more day then no longer. This is the second garmin HRM where this has happened. It’s too bad because it’s a cool product - just very poor quality. I’m going to contact garmin to see if I can get a replacement.
Have purchased 4 of these in 4 years. They never last more than a year. Seems very probable this is done on purpose by Garmin to generate additional revenue, after all what are you going to do? If you have a Garmin watch, either use this or you don't get HR data. Very disappointing. Can't return or send an email to Garmin because their "support" website doesn't work.
Shame on you, Garmin. Wife and I got one of these each - hers sporadically started having connection issues and had to replace the battery this week, then it finally died. Thankfully Amazon exchanges are faster than Garmin's support. These units clearly have some QC issues with them - for $80-100, I'd expect these to be more durable than the old Polar straps I used to use for five years straight.
This was great for the first 6 months and then I needed to replace the battery. After the replace I had to continue to replace the battery weekly. The good thing is Garmin replaced it no questions asked. I just had to return the defective item.
I had the old HR monitor that I'd paired with my Garmin Fenix 3. I liked it alright. It wasn't the most comfortable, and it only transmitted the heart rate. I found it functional in that regard, but it wasn't nearly as cool as this new monitor is. This thing is awesome.
Très bon produit, la ceinture Garmin HRM-Run dispose d'un système de réglage facile et intuitif. Lorsqu'elle est en place, elle ne bouge pas et se laisse oublier durant l'activité.
Nine days after I bought the HRM sensor, it stopped working. I bought it because the heart rate monitor on my Fenix 5 plus became erratic. I'd read the part about using a drop of washing up liquid once a week etc, but it hadn't worked. I'd started the process of returning the monitor and wondered if I should have bought a FitBit instead of the Fenix. Giving the HRM one last chance, I put around 4 drops of washing up liquid onto a micro-fleece cloth doused in hand hot water and gave the HRM monitor a good wipe down. It's worked perfectly since then. I tried the same on the Fenix and the heart rate monitor sprang into life, and it too has been fine since then. So I've revised my ratings from zero to 5.
Un super capteur avec de n ombreuses fonctionnalités !
Ich habe den HRM Run als Ergänzung zu meinem Fenix 5 erworben, da mir die optische Pulsmessung während der Läufe zu unzuverlässig war. Des öfteren wurden damit zu hohe Werte, manchmal sogar weit über 100% meines Maximalpulses, gemessen. Das ist nicht nur ungeschickt, sondern macht auch alle anderen Leistungsstatistiken, die mit Garmin ermittelt werden können, natürlich kaputt.
I’ve seen mixed reviews about this HRM. I have a Garmin Fenix 5X Plus. The wrist based HRM is, to put it politely way off the mark in terms of accuracy (Yes, I wear it correctly, clean it etc).
