most comfortable heart rate monitor strap for women
My husband got me a trainer for my bike for Christmas (good husband!) but I'm feeling like I need some way to quantify my workouts on it, rather than just time, since it's easy to be lazy when you're riding in one spot in the house. So I'm looking into getting a heart rate monitor, but I'm worried about the strap chafing. Frankly, I'm a D-cup and on top of that I need to lose a few (say 20-30) pounds, and I'm concerned that a strap which might be comfortable for running while you are upright might feel a little different when bent in the road cycling position.
So, for all the ladies out there, any experience, comments, suggestions? Do the straps vary much between brands and are they comfortable worn below the bra? I've noticed the strapless HRMs, but they all seem to require you placing your fingers on buttons on the watch face, so you only get an intermittent reading rather than continuous feedback for your workout.
