hard or soft strap garmin/polar strap
I have a garmin forerunner 305 with old style hr monitor (hard strap) but i feel i always get a high heart rate reading. It is not uncommon for my heart rate to be at 90-100 before starting run and quickly rise to 180+. I don't feel i am working hard enough for a 180+ reading. So I looked up on google and saw all the usual things like wetting sensors and tightening strap which i have tried.
But then I came across an article in which someone had same problem so he used a polar strap with his garmin sensor as with the premium garmin straps the sensor can be taken off and swapped on to a polar strap and the guy claimed he got better readings. Anyone any experience of this?
Either difference between garmins old (hard) strap and new (soft) strap.
or Using garmin sensor on polar strap?
