NEW! Heart Rate Monitor All Sport Bra

New Heart Rate Monitor All Sport Bra. The text doesn't say which brand of HRM this works with. I guess I'd assume Polar but I will update. This is from an Australian product notice email. I'd be more excited if they put the HRM on a Ta Ta Tamer since I use an All Sport for low impact only.

Looks like its for a garmin since a garmin snaps on and off the strap. But the strap has the sensors on it that lie against your chest so not quite sure how this will work.

Polar snaps on and off the strap too! what drove me nuts is that musty smell my band would get even though I rinsed it off with water after every use! I would some times even wash it with soap even though it says to just use water. I guess this bra would be a nice alternative to a stinky chest band.

@Anon 10:16 - Polar HRMs work the same way (snap-on, sensor in the strap). I've seen bras like this before where the sensor is built into the band of the bra. I would totally buy this - I hate trying to wedge my HR strap under my bra! I'm actually glad it's not a Ta Ta Tamer (sorry LLA!) b/c the Tamer doesn't come in my size.

omg this will be so awesome!!! i have a polar HRM and looks like mine will be able to snap onto it! i want this now!

I still use my lulu hrm bras from 2-3yrs ago. Yes they work with Polar and eliminates the black strap. Very comfortable and innovative. My only beef is it's much harder to moisten the sensor parts on fabric than the polar strap. I'm sure these ones will go to WMTM though due to low user base. JMO

This could be awesome. I hate the strap of my heart rate monitor!

The polar also snaps on and off the strap. I think it is a common design among the HRMs.

How gimmicky. If they were smart about it, however, it would be designed somehow to work with any number of HRM's.

OT: Anyone know what happened to the laceoflage Toasty Tech pants on the website? The red, black and yellow ones are there but the laceoflage are missing. I know last week they had a tech snafu and the only way you could find them was by clicking on the "what's knew" tab. Now they are MIA!

The Garmin strap should be rinsed out in the sink after each use. A built-in Garmin strap means hand washing your sports bra. Added work that I don't need.

If and when this bra reaches the US, I am going to buy like five of them.

The HRM on my Garmin doesn't snap on and off (I have the 405CX) but I had a Polar HRM before the Garmin and that one did have snaps that looked like they would align with the snaps on this bra.

Lulu made a tank a few years ago with a similar concept I think. If you had the compatible HRM, I think it's a cute and innovative idea!

I'm with Run It My Way--my Garmin monitor doesn't snap on and off. This is totally gimmicky to me anyways so I wouldn't use it even if it was an option. I hope I get this bra without the snap on option.

i don't use a heart rate monitor ever, but i think it's a great idea for a bra if you do.

Long time HR monitor wearer and have an old lulu bra that has this same feature. It was so incredibly tight in the chest area I couldn't breath! Horrible. Assuming the same since it needs to have the connection. Straight jacket!

I hope it works with garmin!!!

I love the idea because I get rub marks on my chest and under my boobs from my Garmin and Polar straps (yes, I own multiple watches, kinda like my Lulu obsession). The question is what kind of support the bra has, some mentioned this bra is low impact, which means it defeats the purpose if you can't run in it. But I'm curious to find out.

The higher number Garmin watches, 610, 910 etc... have the strap that snaps on and off.

This is such a gimmick. My Garmin HR monitor strap does not have snaps. When on me, it tucks just under my soft y bra and stays put. It gets hand washed and never smells.

@ 9:49 AM I don't wear my HR monitor when I'm not training. I used to for 'regular' runs (am hardcore), but I've relaxed a fair bit and will just go with my more basic running watch. If you train for anything, especially a full marathon, using a HR monitor is a wise necessity. Of course if you use a HR monitor just in general, that's cool too.

I have a couple of different Garmin HRMs. My cheaper one has the sensor integrated into a plastic portion of the strap. My pricier one has a separate sensor that snaps off the strap with a replaceable battery. I love using a heart rate monitor at the gym. I've kind of gone away from using it for running lately. The strap tends to chafe me on long runs and I have a Garmin 610 that I have to scroll through various screens to see my heart rate. I usually don't bother doing that though sometimes I do look at the data later when I dump it to the computer.

I bought two of these, thinking it would solve the problem of chafing with the heart rate strap....

No, the bra chafes so badly that I can't wear it at all, with or without the HRM sensor attached.

This bra will only be good for cycling, no good for running for me. Chafed to blood.

I bought one of these and I love it. I only use it for spin class, working out and playing tennis. I have had no problem with chafing at all, but could see with jogging for long periods of time it may irritate. I hope the come out with more, I would love to see the pink come back.
