    Hey triathletes,

    I just signed up for my first off-season spin program, and I see that it says we should bring a heart rate monitor with a lap function. I regularly work out with a Fitbit Surge, which has a heart rate function, but I know it’s not the most reliable device and it doesn’t track laps. Anyone have a recommendation for a basic monitor that would work for the spin program? Bonus points if it’s also waterproof for pool use.




    Hi Melanie,

    My name is Yuchen, one of the instructors for off-season spin. If you’re not planning on buying a new watch/computer anytime soon for this sport, I would highly recommend the Wahoo Tickr. It’s what I use, and it works with pretty much anything because it’s dual broadcasting (ie. both ANT+ and BLE). This means that you can use it with your phone, or with a Garmin should you decide to get one.

    Whenever I do indoor training, I generally use the Tickr with my iPhone because of the large display and I can see everything. But then, when I do a brick workout, I’ll power up my watch, and it’ll pick up my heart rate with the same strap.

    Hope this helps!



    Thank you! Just ordered!
