"I purchased a generic replacement strap on eBay, rather than purchase the expensive replacement from Garmin. My sensor is working just fine, but my strap was breaking down after a few years' use, and was no longer transmitting well. Additionally, bits of the strap were peeling off, and when I snapped off the sensor recently, the fabric around the snap began to fray. This replacement was so inexpensive, I purchased a two-pack so I have an extra when I leave one drying in the shower at home by accident."alicefoeller


Just as adjustable as the original OEM strap from Garmin.


Picked up heart rate from snap attachment sensor

Softer than the original from Garmin, I was skeptical about whether the strap would transmit my heart rate to my Garmin watch. But with a price of two for $12, and my old strap cracking and transmitting poorly, with elevated heart rates, I decided to try. I was not sure if the snap attachment worked with every strap, but they are fairly standard, apparently. It snapped right on and fit fine.

New strap does not have "left - right" markings like the Garmin one did.
