Train more effectively
Sure, you can train by feel, but if you want to get the most out of your workouts, you'll use a heart rate monitor to more accurately gauge your effort levels. This HRM works with any compatible ANT+ Garmin device, and once it's paired it'll automatically be recognized by your cycling computer or fitness watch. And don't worry about picking up a spurious signal from some other rider in the paceline — it's designed for optimal performance in crowded areas like road races and the gym. The monitor's adjustable strap is made from a soft fabric for comfort, and you can snap off the heart-rate module to wash the strap after a long day in the saddle. Warranty: 1 year.
