Repairing Garmin HR strap

Postby BugsBunny » Wed Sep 07, 2016 1:01 pm

Morning all. The electrode part of my Garmin HR strap is peeling off. Anyone got suggestions on how to repair it or stick it back? Is there any specific glues I can / cannot use (because of its conductivity?).

just chuck the trap, buy a compatable ebay one and stick your garmin sender onto it.

+1 to what mikgit said

Go to ebay search for garmin heart rate strap and buy a couple for 6 dollars or so delivered from china (my current favourite is a blue one that cost $7.50)

The straps do have a limited life span, and need regular washing which is why I always have two.

Mine was just starting to wear a little too much, this is incredibly cheap. Cheers.

+1 for the cheap Chinese straps.
I don't know how they make a profit when postage is included.
I just lick the pads and put 'em on.
Rarely, if ever wash them. The current one is now about 9 months old and works perfectly.
About an eight of the price of genuine Garmin straps and seem to last about the same amount of time.
