Why should you buy the Garmin HRM-Pro this Amazon Prime Day?
The Garmin HRM-Pro gives you much more accurate heart rate data than wrist-based wearables, making it essential for serious athletes. It might also appeal to those athletes who can’t wear a watch during their sports, such as water sports, team sports and martial arts.
By storing your steps and calories burned, the HRM-Pro can also give you a seamless insight into your day, even if you leave your watch at home. For those in the Garmin ecosystem who are serious about their stats and improving technique, this heart rate tracker offers an alternative, cheaper option than visiting a sports science lab.
It’s probably unlikely that anyone will keep it on all day, although someone somewhere will find it that addictive! If you are a fan of the brand and already have a Garmin watch, the HRM-Pro will give you even more data than ever before. For those who don’t want to be tied to their watch, it quickly becomes addictive, and if you’re a multi-eventer, it’s worth getting.
