Issue with connectivity
Used for 1 week or less
Not been able to connect HR monitor to Endomondo, Runtastic or strava and these are the apps those are mentioned in products description. It's only connecting to Decathlon coach but all my friends are on Endomondo. Whats the point of buying Bluetooth HR monitor then?
puts garmin to shame
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
been struggling for fair amount of time with the garmin HRM products and gave up. This little beauty for half the price does it all. Didn't want to believe the reviews but gotta admit, HR monitoring been hassle free since buying this thing.
Takes long to connect, sometimes does not connect.
Used for 7 to 12 months
I bought this maybe a year and did not used very often but after a while I started noticing it may take 5 minutes to connect to Strava. Not sure if its normal but its quite frustrating to wait while cheaper ones from Lidl take seconds.
Lately it has not even connected. Battery replaced, and after a couple of times again does not connect.
It might be a good product but this one probably has a failure. I was also disapointed when I changed the battery for the first time that it had a mark of being used so I guess someone else had used it and returned if for unreliable so that was frustrating. I have not returned it before since the nearest store is too far from here and not is probably too late.
If you buy one, keep the receipt and ensure it works. If it does not work well, it would be nice that Dacathon would not sell it further to others repeating the frustration. Why not just destroy faulty ones?.
Response of the brand
Dear Leonel,

Firstly I'm sorry you have had an issue with your heart rate belt connecting with Strava.

It could be an issue with the belt or it could be a connection problem with the device you are using Strava on.

I propose if possible to return the product to store and they can test a replacement belt with your device.  You could also try to pair with a different device to see if it connects more quickly.

If it's a problem with the connection with the device then I would put you in touch with Geonaute Support.

If it's with the belt you are covered for two years against defect so you could have an exchange or refund.

Regarding the state of the product when you purchased it.  It's our procedure to destroy all products returned to us as defective unless we have a product recall in place.  It can be the case that a product's packaging is opened in the store or a product is returned as an unwanted purchase.  In the case it's returned as an unwanted purchase we will check the product for use but I could imagine the case where the packaging was immaculate that it would be assumed that the product had never been opened.  In short I want to reassure you that we have a clear procedure in place but it doesn't guarantee at 100%.

Kind regards,

Compatible with Garmin and early indications is that it is more reliable, with consistent performance and no dropouts. Comfortable to wear.
Monitor is good but app could be better
Used for 1 week or less
The monitor works perfectly well and is a good as my partner's Polar HRM. The Decathlon Coach app that is recommended for it could be better. Max heart rate, customizable heart rate zones, and integration with other apps would be great.
SHAME ONLY USED 3 TIMES

Response of the brand
Hi Jamie,

I'm sorry to hear that you've had a problem with your heart rate strap.  Very occasionally there can be an issue with a battery and it's probably the most likely cause of what you describe.  If you are able to return it to store they will be able to test with a new battery for you and if needed make an exchange (or refund).

I'm really sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Kind regards,

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
At last a heart rate monitor that does Bluetooth and Ant+ in one chest strap! No more choosing between Garmin or Strava!, I can use both at the same time!!
Works with RidewithGPS app
Used for 1 week or less
I bought this to connect to my RidewithGPS iphone APP. It works will. I have an iPhone 6, You don't pair the product in the phone like normal Bluetooth devices. you go to the APP and pair it in there. Some indication of how tight to have the strap would be good?
Works with Strava on iPhone 6 and Garmin 510
Used for 1 week or less
After ordering this, I read through more of the reviews and did some online searching, the result of which was that I started to doubt that it would do what I wanted it to do. Now I have received it, I can confirm that it connects quickly and easily through Bluetooth to the Strava app on my iPhone 6 and through ANT+ to my Garmin 510 cycle computer.

Some of the uncertainty is because the ANT+ compatibility weblink on the Decathlon information page about the device doesn't work and some of it is caused by the fact that the Strava FAQ page for the iOS app does not confirm that the band works, one person having asked about it but with no answer given.

The instruction manual is fat because it is in multiple languages but there are only three pages for each. The manual isn't much use at all - most things are dealt with by 'see the application's usage instructions'.

The battery is already fitted and if you are unlucky in being sent old stock it may have run down so that the band doesn't appear to work. I tried first with the Decathlon Coach app on the iPhone and it detected the band straight away. Similar story with the Strava app (you have to go to the Record section before you can pair the band) and with the Garmin 510.

Excellent buy.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Used with both Decathlon's own app & after a few phone resets with Strava - not initially easy, but took Deathlon's app off and then all was well.
Seems accurate and no weird anomalous readings. Fits comfortably and is unobtrusive on any ride I've so far done - (5 hours). Would have been 5 * but found an identical HRM but without the chest strap from Decathlon for £15 so whilst its cheaper than the competition, its not cheapest they do, this cheaper one was hidden away in bike accessories.
Comfort, works consistently after initial problems
£15 for a strap really???
