Has anyone got one of these?

amazon.co.uk

I was thinking of getting one as the original strap for my 305 is a bit bulky, and doesn't sit too well under my sports bras. I was just looking to see if anyone else has one and how much difference it's made from the original one - if at all any!

Thanks :)

That strap looks like the one I have but the monitor is different - the monitor for my 405 looks like this. amazon.co.uk

I couldnt say how it works with a sports bra, however

I got one with my 410 Debs - like SoaPM I can't answer about using it with a sports bra but it does feel a bit more comfortable. One of the firmer sensor sections at the front does tend to dig in a bit but that's probably just me being a strange shape or something :-)
TBH I'm not sure it's £36 quid of a difference though - maybe a lady who has one will provide some more sensible answers shortly...

There are two version of the Premium Strap, tho' the transmitter is the same and fits either strap, it even works with some Polar straps. I've tried several combinations, but have gone back to the original bulky one, for one reason, it is reliable! The Premium has issues!

Got something to say?
