“Athletes rely on our popular line of chest straps to provide accurate heart rate and performance data during any workout, and we are excited to bring new metrics to the HRM-Pro Plus,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “By tracking pace and distance during an indoor track or treadmill run, athletes have even more in-depth data to help them push their limits.”
Through ANT+ and BLUETOOTH® Low Energy technology, the HRM-Pro Plus transmits accurate, real-time heart rate and performance data to Garmin smartwatches and Edge® cycling computers, compatible fitness equipment, the Tacx® Training app and more.
To help runners improve their form and receive running power on their compatible Garmin smartwatch, the HRM-Pro Plus captures running dynamics, including ground contact time, cadence, stride length and more. In the water, the HRM-Pro Plus includes store-and-forward functionality to store heart rate data during a swim. After a swim, the data is sent to a compatible smartwatch and displays alongside the other swimming metrics. When an athlete takes their smartwatch off to participate in activities like team sports, the HRM-Pro Plus will store steps, calories and intensity minutes, then sync that data with their smartwatch via the Garmin Connect™ mobile app and the TrueUp™ feature.
Accessible via a tool-free battery door, the replaceable coin cell battery lasts up to one year. The HRM-Pro Plus is available now and has a suggested retail price of $129.99.
