Cycling Weekly Verdict

I’m left with no quibbles over this device's reliability or ability to cope with sweat. Garmin’s HRM Pro has some neat party tricks up its sleeve too. However, the swim, bike, run logo on the face of the device says it all. If you mainly ride a bike, the Dual version is a better investment.

Garmin’s Heart Rate Monitor Pro does much more than just provide a read out of beats per minute. It can store data, as well as monitoring steps and more - but it’s worth weighing up how much you’ll use these capabilities before forking out for them.
