Great for ithlete
In order to measure heart rate variability a chest strap monitor must transmit RR intervals. The Cardiosport FF5 model was designed with this in mind and provides ECG accurate information which is why we recommend this model to ithlete users.
Performance in cold weather
The FF5 performed better in cold weather testing due to the fabric electrodes having a larger surface area in contact with the skin which is aimed at reducing connection drop outs.
Great Range and Perfect for Precision Pulse
The strap has a range of 10m (30ft) or more. Additionally, the digital connection does not suffer from interference problems which have plagued heart rate monitor straps in the past. This makes it the ideal HRM strap for using during exercise to connect to devices like Garmin, or apps like Strava.
Extensive battery life
Boasting in excess of 900 hours battery life the Cardiosport FF5 will last 3 or 4 times longer than its competitors. With average use (up to 1½ hours per day) the battery will last between 18 and 24 months. After this time the battery can be replaced easily by the user.
High quality design
This ultra-light weight HRM has a high quality soft strap is both comfortable and flexible without compromising connectivity. The electronic module is also removable leaving the strap itself suitable for washing.
The latest design has a soft fabric covering the electrode connector pads which is even better – particularly for those with sensitive skin.
