Hi guys,

Newbie question here. I am looking to buy a heart rate monitor compatible with the peloton bike.

As far as I know it just need to be ANT+ compatible.

Online reviews seem to point that Polar is the best option

What about this as a budget option?

What is everyone else here using?

Thanks! Appreciate any input

Welcome!

If you have a Bike+ a lot of people use the Apple Watch since it's compatible.

If you're using the standard bike, a lot of people including me use the Scosche Rhythm+. It's very accurate and a lot of people prefer the armband as it's more comfortable than a chest strap. If you search for coupons online there are typically some for 15% or more.

Not nuts about coo spoo. Its reading bounces up and down much more than the Scosche. I thought I’d try it but it’s going back.

I use the Rhythm+ and love it! I like that it goes on my arm because the chest monitor was uncomfortable to me. It also has a long battery life!

Chest heart rate monitors are obtrusive while riding and they lose the heart rate easily when you sweat. I tried the Peloton chest heart rate monitor and it’s terrible. I ended up with a Scosche arm band that connects immediately and works beautifully! Here’s the link:

I switched to the Scosche Rhythm+ arm HR monitor. I found that the chest strap gets itchy and annoying on hot days. I tested the Scosche against my chest monitor and found it to be dead on accurate. It works perfectly with my Peloton and on my road bike with my Garmin bike computer, and its much easier to put on and take off. The battery is great and I get many rides before a charge is needed.

I've been using the Wahoo Tickr with Peloton + and seems to work great. Use a little ultrasound gel to maintain connection....

If you go to the Scosche site now and leave, they'll offer you 15% and there are usually promo codes online for 20 or 25% off.
