I use it to monitor my bike rides, with the Fitness Bike Case from same manufacturer.

I wet the area around my chest, strap it in and it works nicely. Fiting is secure, i found that adjusting is pretty easy because the elastics work nicely. No battery change up until now, about 30 hours of use only and no problems to report.

I could easly give it 5 stars if i had any more time with it, just to be sure.

I have been using these belts for years and my last finally wore out.

The new belt is just as before, comfortable and works perfectly with my ANT+ devices.

Great supplier, the device arrive the day after order.

I have been using this for a couple of weeks in conjunction with the Wahoo Fitness Bike Case for iPhone with Speed and Cadence sensors (also bought from Amazon). This is light weight, robust, comfortable and easy to link with the WF App. Good value for money and arrived promptly. I use an electrode gel which helps ensure the cotact is always perfect (sometimes difficult with a hairy chest!). It has helped revolutionise my cycle training which I have planned using Training Peaks (also highly recommended).

This strap has captured my heart (and my Motoactv) 20 April 2012
By Old Qwfwq - Published on Amazon.com

*** 150-hour update ***

OK, I finally have a complaint! See, after more than 150 hours of Wahoo heart rate monitor use, my average heart rate dropped by about 15 bpm following a week of running at 6000 feet last month. True, high-altitude training does give your system a boost, but I thought the improvement was too good to be true, concluding instead that the battery was finally on the decline. After all, Wahoo's own site claim's the battery's life span is about a year, and I'd been using it for almost twice as long. So I bought a 2-pack of the CR2302 (I thought we had battery spares around the house, but I couldn't find them). I just went on a run with the new battery; turns out the original battery was still ticking just fine, and now I have two new batteries (maybe more) ready to power Wahoo for another four years! I'll just think of all the batteries as signs of my optimism and hidden power.

Where was I? Oh, right, the complaint: the battery cover is a pain to open! You're supposed to open it with a coin, but the plastic around the coin slit is soft and strips easily. Now my cover is all mangled at the slit, and I'm worried I won't be able to open it when the battery runs out in two years. So much for my optimism. ZERO STARS!!!

Just kidding. Everything still works perfectly. I love you, Wahoo!

*** 100-hour update ***

Still going strong on the original battery! Still linking to my Motoactv with zero complaints! Still comfy & accurate! Still ticking off one-star reviewers who don't know how to provide details!

*** 50-hour update ***

My Wahoo honeymoon (Wahooneymoon?) remains in full stride. Nearly four months and fifty hours of use later, the original battery is still ticking strong, the transmitter pairs with my Motoactv almost instantaneously every single time, and the strap feels as soft and comfortable as my skin.

I see from the other reviews that there are some Wahoo haters (Wahooters?) out there, and that the haters are not especially articulate. From what I can surmise, a couple were upset about misleading advertising. (Yes, you need an ANT+ key--sometimes sold separately--for this to work with your iPhone/Pod/Pad. More generally, if your device is not capable of receiving ANT+ transmissions, it will not be compatible with this ANT+ Wahoo strap without additional gizmos.) Other haters simply said the strap didn't work; in the absence of more detailed information, I'm inclined to guess the issue was no ANT+ reception in their monitor/phone/widget. One person did buy the ANT+ key and said the readings were not accurate; I can't speak to personal experience with the key, but other reviewers seem to have used it successfully.

Regardless, Wahoo still has my heart. I wish I could say the same about Motoactv (see my updated review there for more info).

*** Original Review ***

Wahoo indeed! I use this with the Motorola Motoactv and love 'em both. Let's unpack Amazon's item title and use it as a guide for this review.

"Wahoo Fitness ANT+ Soft Heart Rate Strap for iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad."

"Wahoo Fitness...":
That's just the company name. Once they become more famous, I hope they will consider shortening their name to "Wahoo." All the cool companies are doing it. Remember "thefacebook"? Me neither. Dropping "Fitness" will give them a zingier brand: just "Wahoo," sort of like "Madonna" or "Fabio." Besides, wouldn't "Fitness" be understood once "Wahoo" becomes a household name? Their motto can then be "Wahoo means Fitness."

"... ANT+...":
That's the proprietary wireless sensor network developed by the almost-eponymous company, ANT. The technology broadcasts on a 2.4 GHz frequency, making it impervious to interference from power lines and stop lights. This was the main appeal for me: my previous heart rate monitor & strap, a Timex Personal Trainer, worked great unless I was running underneath power lines or near stop lights, both of which happen to be plentiful in my neighborhood. So far, I'm quite impressed with ANT+ technology. It has been accurate (as far as I know), interference- and spike-free, quick to pair, and consistent.

"... Soft Heart...":
So I've been often accused, but I refuse to change! I refuse, I tell you! Call me naive, I don't care! Life is not worth living if one has to be calloused and cynical and... what's that? "Soft" modifies "Heart Rate Monitor"? Oops! Color me embarrassed! Well, I guess the strap IS soft. It doesn't chafe. It is elastic but doesn't need to be overly tight to get a grip. It is virtually invisible during the run. OK, it's not cashmere soft, but cashmere is expensive.

"... Heart Rate Strap...":
The strap is adjustable to a wide range of sizes. It is washable once unclipped from the transmitter. I especially like the unclippable-transmitter feature because of my experience with the Timex Personal Trainer strap, which sometimes would continue to transmit after I'd taken it off because it was wet and touching something (in its defense, wet and touching something gets us all in trouble) hence draining the battery; with Wahoo, unclip and end transmission. The transmitter battery is user changeable, and I usually keep these batteries handy, just in case, since there's no low-battery signal. Amazon claims the battery is a CR2, but I think that's a typo and should be CR2032. Finally, one's hairy chest doesn't need to be waxed for the strap to pick up a signal--just splash a little water or spit and you're good to go. And who amongst us doesn't spit on one's chest as a matter of course?

"... for iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad":
And for Motorola Motoactv, which pairs seamlessly with Wahoo. It is my understanding that some Android phones like Sony and HTC have ANT technology built in. As far as I can tell, you need a Wahoo Key for your iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad to pick up a signal, though I haven't tried it with any of these devices. Check the ANT website at thisisant-dot-com (sorry, Amazon doesn't like live links to non-Amazon sites) for more info. One of these days, I'll try the Wahoo Key so that I may go for a run with my iPad. For now, it's Wahoo+Motoactv for me.

[Two additional notes about ANT: (1) The company ANT is owned by Dynastream Innovations Inc, which in turn is owned by Garmin Ltd, which in turn used ANT+ in its own line of heart rate monitors. I wonder if both Garmin and Wahoo are owned by Banana Republic, which as we all know is owned by Rupert Murdoch. (2) After an extensively brief Google search, I still couldn't figure out what ANT stands for. The company blurb claims its name evokes "the tiny, productive insect that is noted for its efficiency and strength." I am suspicious of that story, and think ANT is an acronym; why else capitalize it thusly? I therefore propose we start a rumor that ANT stands for "Advanced Network Technologies," and that it had been shortened (in anticipation of becoming a household name) from "Personal Integrated Sensors Supporting Advanced Network Technologies."]

Works perfectly! 18 Jan 2011

For this review, it's important to note that this monitor is being used with the Wahoo Fitness Fisica Fitness Sensor Key and an iPhone4 (and iPad). I will reserve more review for that product.

For the monitor and band, I couldn't be happier. When I started shopping for heart monitors, I realized that all the good ones used a chest strap. This was a surprise for me. I reviewed my options, and finally settled on the suite of products from Wahoo Fitness.

The band, with sensors, is elastic, adjustable, and wide enough not to dig into my skin, even when fairly tight. The two electrodes themselves are situated beneath the each breast, when the strap is fitted. The transmitter unit is situated above the celiac plexus, between/underneath the breasts, and is connected to the strap by a firm snap button on each side.

Overall, very easy to initially wet the electrodes, easy to adjust, easy to put on. Works and fits great!

Wahoo fitness 27 Dec 2011
By Scott Romaine - Published on Amazon.com

I am very pleased with this purchase. I purchased this along with the entire iPhone4 bike kit. I use this kit with the "Cyclemeter" application on my iPhone4. It is very accurate and installation was straight forward. I do recommend watching the video on the Wahoo Website which is very helpful. I guess review is really about the bike kit and I can't say enough about it. I am 66 years old so I like to keep an eye on my heart rate while riding.

Very sporadic, not accurate 17 July 2012
By BD King - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I almost did not buy this after reading a number of bad reviews, but I tried it. Big mistake. First, you must get a Wahoo key ANT, and they are not clear about that. Second, it does not link to the Wahoo device reliably, regardless of how sweaty you are, or how much you wet down the pads. Last, when it finally does mate with the antenna, the heart rate has never once been accurate. I've love to have a heart rate of 65 after riding a bike five miles, but staying at 65 for the entire ride? By the sixth time I tried to use it, and having trouble getting Wahoo software to recognize it (the utility program would recognize it, but not the other Wahoo software), I gave up. I took too much time trying to make this work, so I missed the deadline to return it for a credit. Too bad. I would not waste money on this buggy device again.

This chest strap is easy to size and fasten, and is as comfortable as one would expect. It paired beautifully with my iPhone in the Wahoo Case, and has given me flawless heart rate results on every ride. Works very well
