Hi, My husband is getting really into his triathlon and is now signed up for the jurassicman ironman this August. His birthday is coming up and I want to get him a HRM that measures cadence, speed and distance on the bike, and all these minus cadence for running. I've had a good look online and there are loads out there that promise a lot. Does anyone have any recommendations for which deliver on the promises, are easy to use and set up, and will transfer easily between cycling and running? Many thanks, Lianna

Garmin would be a good start. I have the 410 which comes with a hrm and bought the gsc10 cadence sensor to go on the bike. Works great. I had that before training for triathlon and I know a lot on here have the 910xt which you can also use for swimming and also in conjunction with the gsc10 cadence sensor.

+1 for the 910 with a GSC10 cadence sensor

+1 on the 910XT but there are cheaper cadence sensors for the bike that are Ant+

Bontrager do one which you can pickup for £16

A 310xt will do what you want and should be cheaper. It's an older model though.

Thanks very much folks. The Garmin 910 looks amazing... I think I'll splash out on that and 'borrow' it from time to time for my runs
