Has anyone tried the HRM glove from Beurer? It works with a finger sensor rather than a chest strap. I've tried two chest-strap models so far and constantly lost signal with them and wonder if this might be a better option. It's rather expensive, though, c. £110-120.
No, this isn't the type where you touch a button on a watch. It uses a light beam within a sensor placed over the finger and it gives a constant reading, like a chest strap. The technique is called plethysmography.
My chest strap used to slip out of place as soon as I got sweaty, no matter how tightly I put it on.
I've got some Nike cropped tops which have slots in the elastic beneath the boobs, for you to thread the plastic part of the HRM in.
They hold it in just the right place, without slipping.
