One heart rate monitor for all your training and recovery needs!

The Cardiosport TP5 transmits heart rate data via both Bluetooth Smart and ANT+. This ensures it will work seamlessly with all HRM apps on your iOS or Android and with your Garmin devices. So you can use it to take your morning ithlete measurement and to monitor heart rate during workouts.

Great for ithlete

In order to measure heart rate variability a chest strap monitor must transmit RR intervals. The Cardiosport TP5 model was designed with this in mind and provides ECG accurate information which is why we recommend this model to ithlete users.

Now with Stride Sensor

If you do choose to use this HRM strap during workouts the exciting new Stride Sensor feature will be a welcome addition over older models. The Cardiosport TP5 broadcasts running cadence, pace and distance data in as well as heart rate.

Great Range

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 TP5 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.

Please Note

  • Transmitting data via Bluetooth Smart there is no need for an ECG receiver when using this HRM strap.

  1. AndrewDolphin

    Used with ipulse, great products

  2. MarnieByles

    it’s O.k. most days the signal is picked up quickly by my iphone app.

  3. BillThompson

    Works great with BikeBrain, my iPhone app I chose. Not listed for it but it was there.

  4. ChrisBarrett

    Works well. Better than having to take my case off my iphone in order to use the EKG receiver.

  5. MarkLansdown

    Works with a variety of software on iPhone and iPad. Comfortable. Well made.

  6. TrevorKana

    Great product and very easy to use. Makes measuring HRV fast and efficient.

  7. ChrisArmstrong

    Links quickly to iThlete and also Sports Tracker. Comfortable to wear and definitely the way forward for combining heart rate monitoring with various apps.

  8. AlexShaykevich

    Cardiosport BTLE hrm arrived promptly functioning as advertised. Good experience.

  9. SteveHabegger

    Easily connects and works great

  10. RichardGreatbatch

    Bluetooth makes it exceptionally quick and easy to use. Still not sure 100% how ithlete works! but it’s proven extremely useful managing my training programme along with the many other demands in my life

  11. RichardElgin

    Excellent product. Huge improvement. I have a Mophie on my iPhone and I is much easier to no longer have to remove the battery case. Unfortunately I just recently misplaced it or someone else did and I’m back to using the old receiver method. If it doesn’t make a reappearance soon I’ll have to make another purchase :-D. Cheers

  12. AndrewRook

    It does what it says on the box :-)

  13. JaroslavKmet


  14. RichardCradick

    Excellent product. Tells me when to train light, when to train hard, and when not to train. Enables me to recover and improve my training.

  15. RichardCradick

    Connects quickly without any problems. Reliable and consistent.

  16. Fulvio LinoDi Blasio

    Very good

  17. martinWhite

    Just what it says on promo

  18. Jesper DalgasZachariassen

    Works as advertised.

  19. ScottWilkey

    The Bluetooth connection works much better than the dongle.

  20. JessicaMargolin

    I’m in the process of getting back in shape in middle-age, which means my body and I are becoming re-acquainted with “limits.” As someone who haaaaates a “whiny workout,” ithlete helps me know when I can legitimately take a day off, and the rest of the time I can go ahead and push. In short, it gives me confidence. I take three readings first thing in the morning laying flat to minimize any variability, and then I export and use excel to average the readings and plot. Then I can correlate with workouts, and in particular an elimination diet as I’m trying to control inflammation. Great work!

  21. ByronWelch

    It works pretty reliably with my iPhone 5. You should make it more clear that it uses an advanced Bluetooth format that older cell phones don’t have.

  22. BrianJaskot

    Great product. Syncs right up to the phone automatically.

  23. jamesdickerson

    Works great

  24. SumnerChase

    Works great! Connects easily and always has a reliable connection and reading — excellent upgrade from previous need to plug receiver into iPhone which was cumbersome.

  25. MichaelHenry

    Nicely done.

  26. MichelleBozarth

    works every time, no fidgeting to find signal.

  27. AlanKurzweil

    Works fine

  28. RobertSloboda

    After a recent ithlete software update for android, the device seems to be working reliably for HRV measurements on Nexus 4 platforms. Looking forward to future software functionality enhancements.

  29. ChristopherSalas

    A small hiccup at the beginning. I didn’t have Android 4.3 or greater and it wouldn’t sync. After this was figured out the device works perfect. The hardware and the HRV app work perfectly. Only been for a coupe of weeks but very impressed so far. I would never have realized how stressful an argument can be in your personnel life! As of today I would highly recommend to any athlete if they are remotely serious in their training.

  30. RichieSheerin

    Great product really helps with training. When to train hard, active recovery and when to rest. I tested this out and trained rpe 8/10 when it told me I should rest. About 2mile into the run I was empty even though I felt ok to begin with.

  31. GregLarson

    Works great! Good information!

  32. ErinStone

    Works as expected – no issues with connectivity or transmission.

  33. ZabethBillingham

    The Bluetooth Heart monitor works very well. Moistening the contacts is sometimes needed to achieve connection but I haven’t had any problems with it.

  34. AldenHingle

    The heart rate monitor is easy to put on and use. The monitor connects easily to the ithlete application and provides reliable performance.

  35. TroyKennedy

    Works great. Just as advertised.

  36. PiersKwan

    Based on the short time I have had the product it appears to work as advertised. Easy to pair with applications, and consistent in it’s readings.

  37. RobertSchimanko

    Sensors and connection work very accurate.

  38. BryanHoefeyzers

    Easy to use. doesn’t have that stupid fabric on the polar which if it goes in the washing machine is as good as done for.

  39. FrancisDECOSTER

    Good product

  40. YannickCARIO

    Realy easy to use, i start using ithlete with ecg monitor and switch to bluetooth smart after changing my phone to a Galaxy S5 and appreciate the simplicity of the strap, the values stay close withe the ecg monitor so both work fine !



  41. fabriziofurlani

    it works perfect !

  42. EndikaMiragaya

    It works as advertised. My phone (Samsung S4) quickly picks up the bluetooth signal and works perfectly.

  43. AlbertoVitali

    Good signal an configuration, i use it with your ithlete iphone app to determinate the HRV every day in the morning.

  44. DrewHuerter

    I have no issues at all with the Bluetooth strap. However I feel that the compatibility with the Ipad 2 or lack there of isn’t cool. I also wish the program for the android device would be a little more in depth and or user friendly like the ipad one. I had to purchase the program for both platforms


    Seems reliable but does not always pair quickly with my iPhone 4S.

  46. Gail Petty

    Really straightforward to use. Immediate connection with ithlete app in iPad mini.

    Occasional probs with it picking up heart rate.

  47. RobertSnapper

    Opted or the belt as the ithlete receiver attached to I-pad did not always pick up the signal.
    Bluetooth seems to be better in that sense.

  48. AdamErritzoe

    Good quality Comfortable. Works really well

  49. RobinMitchell

    Works very smoothly on the whole, connecting to my iPhone 5.

  50. DavidBrandie

    There seemed to be issues with the first unit I received but this was replaced quickly and easily. The second unit is working well. Seems like a good quality product.

  51. HendrikNahler

    Does what it says. It picks up signal with my iPad very quickly.

  52. HåvardGrostad

    It worked right away, thats great.

  53. MichaelScheuer

    Easy to use

  54. JamesonMola

    Simple to use.

  55. RaduTrandafir

    A rather expensive BTLE heart-rate monitor. Not sure how it’s different from other similar devices because I get the same results whether I’m usning it or another BTLE HRM.

  56. WolfEhrke

    HRV measurement in the morning provides useful information about my daily status.
    The measurement of the heart rate during a workout seems to be inaccurate or wrong.
    Wearing the chest belt during gym exercises is uncomfortable if tightened enough to prevent the belt from sliding down to the hip.

  57. AaronShaffer

    seems to work. still learning how to use it best.

  58. AntoniL

    It has been working great. The connection setup is easy and reliable. The elastic strap is comfortable to use.

    One thing that can be improved is a very simple instruction like how to attach/detach the hook and connecting HRM with other devices

  59. WadeAnderson

    Product works very well and I am happy that I purchased this item

  60. GregScott

    I find the strap to be comfortable enough to sleep with through the night and the information it provides useful. Sometimes I’m not sure on the accuracy, or the time of the morning to proceed with the measurement though. My score has never dropped below 80, even though I’m a colleigiate student athlete – runner. I’ve only had it a few weeks though and I still like it!

  61. JoshPullman

    Useful tool for gauging optimum times to train and providing a unit of measurement for fatigue. Using it everyday and would recommend it to anyone looking to take their training professionalism to the next level.

  62. DanielZaknich

    Good connectivity and easy to use. Works very well with our HRV apps.

  63. JustinOtto

    A little tricky to get on and off, but seems to do the job.

  64. GerritKatsma

    Easy to use monitor

  65. JoeCullen

    Easy to use but connections problems occur during workouts.

  66. MalcolmLegget

    Works well most of the time.

  67. MichaelBastiani

    Works good. Comfortable to wear for long rides. Easily pairs with iPhone apps. Only issue is battery life. Battery that came installed lasted only 2 months. I am hoping this is not a hardware/firmware defect.

  68. ThomasBlackadar

    It’s a heart rate monitor

  69. JohnQuinn

    Very simple to use… Gives limited information

  70. TeijaRantanen

    it’s simple. too simple, even. i wished for more information than just numbers.

  71. LancelotRudelsheim

    Seems to work fine once connected, however, it is finicky to initially connect, often taking up to two minutes.

  72. dirtcoach

    All around works great never an issue. I use it with ithlete of course, my garmin, power meter and wahoo fitness. Best HR strap I have had and I have many.

  73. Neal McQ (verified owner)

    Works very well, picking up a signal very quickly. Have used consistently with ithlete and also with Runkeeper, etc. also. All working perfectly (much better than experience with older earphone-jack-based solution).

    Only negative is it would be great if it could be attached to multiple handsets without having to re-attach each time so my wife could use it also – doesn’t make sense to have to purchase two chest straps, purely just to take an ithlete reading each morning.

  74. Sooz (verified owner)

    Use with HRV app (iThlete). Comfortable, pairs with phone application reliably for the most part. I don’t use my phone for exercising, so I don’t know how it would perform during exercise.

  75. Nelsonathlete

    Works as advertised.

  76. JOHN CHOI (verified owner)

    Amazing product !!!!
    I use it everyday to track my workout progress.
    My resting heart rate is down to 57 beats per minute.
    Thank you so much Lindy for helping me.
    I highly recommend the cardio sport chest strap to track heart rate variablility.
