HR strap for Ergomo AND Edge?

Is there a HR strap out there that is compatible with both the Ergomo and the Garmin Edge305? The Garmin strap doesn't get picked up by the Ergomo, none of my Polar straps get picked up by the Garmin, someone help!

Ive not tried it but the garmin is supposed to be compatible with any coded polar strap. I have a garmin 305 and going to switch to ergomo soon so when you find out post it for sure.

I found this at garmin, i guess maybe you gotta clear this or reset it if you bought the ergomo used?


bah it wont paste right, but basically do a rescan and it should find the strap. On the ergomo dont know how to do that but that strap should work.

Yeah i've tried scanning on the Garmin and it won't find my Polar WearLink strap. Ergomo reads it fine, though. Grrr....

Why are you still using HR when you have an Ergomo? Just about everyone who gets a powermeter never wears a HRM strap ever again.

two immediate reasons:
1) If I'm riding at my FTP and my HR is peaked, I know it's time for a day off.
2) I like data.

1) That decision should be based on whether you can do the watts or not. Introducing HR just introduces HR's problems. Most people would continue their workout unless they couldn't produce the power. In Allen's book, there's a table that provides guidelines as to when to call it quits.

2) More data is not necessarily better.

The third reason is that I hate when I can't get things to work. As a result, I am compelled to get this to work, if for no other reason than to say "I did it"
