HR Chest Strap Connectivity
1). Is it possible to see whether a chest HR strap is actually connected during an activity? I have connected my Garmin HR chest strap but looking at some of the HR data from my last few runs, it indicates to me that it might be working off of the watch HR sensor. Perhaps it needs removing and re-connecting before every activity.
2). Is there a better HR Strap to connect with the Suunto Race? For example, does Suunto HR Chest strap connect better? Polar?
Many thanks in advance. Happy Sunday
I’m pretty sure that on the watch, your heart should have ‘wings’ when an external strap is connected.
Others may correct me
it’s not possible to see on the screen during the activity. in the start screen before the activity it is visible with the “wings” or strap symbol left and right of the heart.
if you’re not 100% sure during the activity, you can lift the watch from your wrist to see the LEDs. if they’re flashing it’s using internal OHR. if they’re off, it’s connected to an external HR device
… and when there are wings on the watch, be careful and put the strap on as tightly as possible …
