Is there such a thing? Are they any good?
Playing around on t'interwebby, I found garmin soft strap but I also found criticism of the soft strap.
I've only got the standard strap and never really had any issue with connectivity although it does sometimes go a bit slow - yesterday I apparently ran 1m @ 66bpm.
I also just googled HRMs and found a number of sites etc, but also this one strapless HRM. There are a number of places that sell HRMs, but I found a Polar one that seems to have a soft strap too.
Re scars, I had a nasty experience with a c-section scar, couldn't see it underneath the overhang () but the stitches burst as the wound became infected and there was a lot of scar tissue, lumps and bumps. I also have a long scar along the inside of one foot where I had tendon surgery and then had my foot in plaster for months afterwards. In both cases, I was advised to use E45, so just applied liberally and it did help. With my foot, my first 2 months of physio were simply cream being massaged into the scar to help it heal. It's now a thin line, barely noticeable.
The older I get, the faster I was wrote (see)
.PS - I've noticed I got your name wrong in an earlier post. I'm blaming my iPad auto-correct, but I should have checked before pressing Submit. Sorry
Don't worry, I've been called far worse!
Edited for PS,
PS, It may well be chafing etc just now because the scar tissue is relatively new - I have no feeling along the c-section scar or my foot, so perhaps once a bit more time has passed, it won't be an issue.
This is an HRM you wear on your wrist. Worth a look if you're having bother with a chest strap.
Have a look at Alpha watch. This is a strapless, touchless HRM
