1TICKR Heart Rate Monitor is rated out of 5 by 264.Rated 4 out of 5 by Brooksie73 from Accurate BPM with limited data I purchased Tickr to track BPM more for health than for fitness. My boyfriend had a-fib and his heart rate was all over the place. We needed a reliable monitor to get a handle on his heart rate. Tickr provided that valuable data. We did find that Tickr had a hard time finding his heart rate while on beta blockers. Tickr picked my heart rate up immediately, but it took several tries to get his. I use it for other activities such as walking and workouts. The only disappointing thing is that it doesn't store data to sync. You need to have your phone close by. If you want a monitor that stores and syncs, you need to get another model.Date published: 2016-01-25Rated 5 out of 5 by asjohnson from Very Good Heart Rate Monitor. I bought the TICKR last year when I wanted to upgrade my old heart rate monitor and it's ran strong this whole year. I haven't even changed the battery yet. I really like how it has a blue flashing LED on one side and a red flashing LED on the other side. When you strap it on you "know" it is working when the blue light flashes. I think the red light represents your heart rate so you know everything is working. It is the quickest of my wahoo sensors to connect to my MAC and my GARMIN. The use of use and reassurance with the LED lights makes this the best heart rate monitor on the market.Date published: 2015-09-18Rated 4 out of 5 by Brando from My favorite HR monitor. Since this is my third HR strap I can compare it to other brands that I have owned. 1. Best feature is ANT+ and Bluetooth. 2. Strap is very comfortable to wear. I have used the HR monitor with my iPhone 5s and Garmin edge 500 and Garmin forerunner 25 without issues. The strap has very little plastic and isn't icy cold when I put it on. It stays in place when cycling. When running I have had problems with the back sliding down and falling off at the end of my run. That was very annoying. My solution was using the adjustment to make the strap tighter next time. I liked it so much I bought one for my daughter too.Date published: 2016-02-05Rated 1 out of 5 by Jeff1 from Not working as hoped - still tinkering Works well with the ANT+ connection on Zwift, but not the iPhone 6 bluetooth connection on Strava. On my iPhone, my heart rate jumps around (e.g. In the middle of going full throttle up a hill it instantly drops from 180bpm to 14bpm) and seems to get stuck on a bpm number for stretches of time. I contacted customer service and they came back with a laundry list of things to try. So far I have tried using electrode gel, flipping the battery to reset, shaving my chest, and the issue is still not resolved. The new batteries I ordered should arrive this week - so my fingers are crossed. It is frustrating, if I buy something I want it to work out of the box.Date published: 2016-11-21Rated 5 out of 5 by RumRiver from Great HRM! You won't be disappointed I have used Polar, Sigma, Garmin, and Bluetooth straps over the years. I love this strap because it is now the only one I need. The ant+ allows using it with my vivosmart and Garmin Edge, as well as our gym's spin bikes. It also works with all my iPhone apps. It doesn't work with polar based cardio machines, but that is not important as I use either my vivosmart or iPhone. The strap is super comfortable and use a very good closure (compared to the Polar BT hook and loop). The indicator lights are also great to have to troubleshoot connectivity/working issues, which by the way, have been none. I should note my wife has one also that she uses with bikes and her Apple Watch. Simply my best HRM ever.Date published: 2016-02-07Rated 5 out of 5 by maxifus from Awesome HRM, thin, light and with BT & ANT+ I previously owned another ANT+ HRM so wasn't expecting much else from BT connectivity. But the TICKR is lighter, thinner, more anatomic and easy to use than anything else I've ever tried. It's really sensitive, with others straps I always needed to moist the contacts, but with the TICKR is incredible how sensitive it is, sometimes it turns automatically on just when I hold it in my hands before attaching the strap to my chest. Awesome. As a plus, the leds in it come very handy to know when its turn on, paired and sensing. Definitely the best HRM out there.Date published: 2015-09-18Rated 4 out of 5 by Elcapix from Awesome device easy to use Amazing design, easy to use, very good app and very good sync capacity. I own a Garmin vivo smart which synced nicely, the only downside is that sometimes the app loses sync with the device, even being very close, I own a galaxy s6 and this happens randomly at least twice in a 2 hours workout session. I have used it for aerobics, spinning, rowing and Hiit and definitely live it. I would give them 5 stars if they had notifications for mile stones, I. E. I'm trying to reach 700 calories per workout and would be nice if the app could tell you about your goals but in general is an amazing device that can help you to accomplish your goals.Date published: 2016-05-18Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnieR from Rock solid, goodbye ANT sensors! I purchased the Blue SC and TICKR at the same time, and the amount of data available is AMAZING for the just a bit over a hundred bucks! I use them with the Wahoo app for indoor training, and Ride With GPS on the road. WARNING: Be sure that your bluetooth is on BEFORE YOU OPEN EITHER APP! If you open the app, then realize your bluetooth is off, close the app, turn on bluetooth, THEN reopen the app. This is mentioned in the web documentation. However, a guy in his 50s thinks it should be splashed in blood-red letters on every page.Date published: 2016-06-09
