Garmin has launched the HRM-Fit, its newest heart rate monitor created for women. Featuring a clip-on design, it attaches to medium- and high-support sports bras to maximise comfort while accurately capturing real-time heart rate and training data.

The HRM-Fit is also versatile enough to be used during activities like running, indoor and outdoor cycling, strength training, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and more.

“Designed with comfort in mind, the HRM-Fit is a purpose-built training tool specifically created for our female customers,” says Susan Lyman, Garmin vice-president of Global Consumer Marketing. “Whether you’re going for a run or taking a HIIT class, it easily attaches to the bottom band of a sports bra and provides accurate heart rate and training data to help you know your body better by tracking the ways you move.”

Designed to fit

Move freely and sweat it out with the HRM-Fit. It seamlessly attaches to medium- and high-support sports bras – including those from adidas, Athleta, NOBULL, Under Armour and more – to minimise movement and enhance comfort.

Built to perform

The HRM-Fit helps athletes push their limits with popular training tools, including:

  • Connectivity – Transmit accurate, real-time heart rate and performance data to compatible Garmin smartwatches and Edge® cycling computers, compatible fitness equipment, the Tacx Training app and more.
  • Training options – Capture accurate heart rate data for a variety of activities including running, indoor and outdoor cycling, strength training, HIIT, fitness classes and more. Plus, if an athlete takes off their compatible smartwatch and leaves it out of range, the HRM-Fit will store the workout data, then send it to the watch once the monitor is back in range of the watch.
  • Indoor running – See pace and distance on a compatible Garmin smartwatch when doing an indoor track or treadmill workout.
  • Activity tracking – If an athlete isn’t wearing their smartwatch, the HRM-Fit captures steps, calories burnt, intensity minutes and all-day heart rate. It will even update all compatible Garmin devices via the Garmin Connect™ smartphone app.
  • Running dynamics – Receive running dynamics including ground contact time balance, cadence, stride length and more – when paired to a compatible Garmin smartwatch – to help improve form.

Featuring up to one year of battery life, the HRM-Fit has a suggested retail price of R3 399.
