Getting Your Own Polar Heart Rate Monitor StrapsComfort is not a term we usually associate with working out. However, whether you’ve been working out for awhile or you are just starting out, comfort, especially in your apparel, is an important factor in your ability to stick with the program.
Comfort is exactly what the designers had in mind when creating the WearLink®+ coded transmitter belt. Not only does it mold itself closely to your skin to accurately pick up and transmit your heart rate, but it also responds perfectly to every flex or extend or bend or stretch that you might do in the course of your workout. You won’t even know it’s there!
The transmitter is made up of the electrode strap and a side-clip connector, which are ergonomically designed to fit you perfectly. The fabric of the strap is soft and flexible, like you want all your workout apparel to be.
The textile heart rate monitor strap is not only soft and flexible, it is also detachable and machine washable. The manufacturer took it a step further: the fabric is anti-bacterial.
Another great feature is that there is a user replaceable battery--- you don’t have to send or take it to an authorized dealer.
Genuine Polar Wearlink+ straps come in different sizes, so be sure to check the specifications to match your body type and size.
The available sizes are XS-S, M-XXL, and XXXL. The range is from size XS, for fitness enthusiasts of body weight about 90 lbs. to size XXXL, for body weights up to about 240 lbs.
The Wearlink+ strap is interchangeable for any Polar heart rate monitor model. So you can choose the features you need and want at the best price point for you. The Polar Ft7 is the best-selling heart rate monitor on Amazon. It seems to have the features that most fitness enthusiasts want without being too technical or too expensive.
Also, check out the newest design incorporating the fabric of highest quality: the Polar Soft Strap. It is extremely sensitive your heart’s electrical signals with adaptive electrodes and extra soft fabrics. The Polar Soft Strap is, of course, compatible with Wearlink+ and H7 transmitters.
If you workout in areas where there is a higher degree of electronic interference, you might want to consider the slightly higher priced strap and electrodes with W.I.N.D. technology. W.I.N.D. eliminates electronic interference from external influences such as power lines.
You may also need the Polar GPS strap if you utilize the GPS technology from Polar. It is comprised of the same superior fabrics and electronics you have come to expect from Polar.
