Athletic heart rate monitor belts
I am new to PM and this site, having had my first pm implant the day before yesterday.
I'm a life long bicyclist, my average mileage for the last ten years is about 100 miles/wk.
I use a Garmin edge 520 along with a variety of belts that snap around my torso with the pick ups quite close to the pm incision.
The only literature I have found thus far, addresses the pm's effect on the HR monitor. About which, by comparison, I am hardly concerned at all.
The more compelling concern is whether the belt can affect the operation of the pm.
The belt that I most often use is a Wahoo brand* that, like most other belts, communicates (links to) with the device via a bluetooth (RF) signal. I usually link it to my iPhone as a back up.
I would really like to hear from someone who actually wears such a belt that sends info to a Edge 520 or similar product.
(Incidentally, it was the data presented by the edge/Wahoo combination that sent me scampering to a cardiologist to begin with.)
Any help much appreciated!
