Customer Reviews for Polar Soft Spare Strap
5 out of 5 Polar Soft Strap
Newitts Verified Purchase (7 Mar 2016)
No problems with its use as a heart rate strap, picks up a signal ok. Adjustable and unobtrusive when worn. Usually last a couple of years when used regularly (most days) and rinsed through after use.
5 out of 5 Best HRM strap available
Newitts Verified Purchase (14 Apr 2015)
This is the most reliable HRM strap available in my opinion. I use them with both my Polar and Garmin monitors. Both clip on and work faultlessly.
5 out of 5 Polar replacement soft strap
Newitts Verified Purchase (10 Feb 2015)
Great. Bought this a replacement for my Garmin strap which is £20 more expensive!! Works even better and seems to register better than the old garmin one did. Links up perfectly with my Garmin 800 too so all good - will definitely replace it again if it ever wear out!
5 out of 5 Just the job
Newitts Verified Purchase (3 Feb 2015)
Needed a replacement strap for my Polar M62 HRM as the original was transmitting an irregular pulse at best and nothing at worse. This replacement soft stap is the perfect solution. It is very comfortable to wear, transmits a reliable, continuous pulse and the monitor clips easily on and off the stap.
5 out of 5 Dont bother with Garmin
Newitts Verified Purchase (31 Jan 2015)
If like me & many others your Garmin HR atarts playing up, throw the strap away and get one of these. Dont bother with Garmin. Good service too from Newitts.
5 out of 5 Does what is says on the tin.
Newitts Verified Purchase (21 Jan 2015)
Having had two Garmin straps which both failed or worked sporadically, I discovered via my clubs website, that a Polar strap is the way forward. I have had no problems at all and its more comfortable to wear than the Garmin strap.
5 out of 5 top notch
Great price, my ft7 is like new again. My old strap kept losing sync ect, I washed it in a too high a wash and the strap came apart, upon instecting the insides there was a lot of white stuff, I tatsed this white stuff and even after a hot wash it tasted of salt. Moral of this story is if you want the strap to last longer then wash it after every use as the salt build up from sweat gets stuck inside the strap.

Works perfectly with my Garmin GPS - no spikes or dead spots (so far) and just as comfortable. That's about that really.
5 out of 5 Soft Polar Strap, Excellent
Newitts Verified Purchase (27 Nov 2014)
I am a BIG fan of Polar products, I have at present both the FT 60 and the *M400 Heart Rate Monitor watches *which I use everyday to keep fit. Previously the HR Monitor straps were quiet hard and inflexible, making them not the most comfortable things in the world to wear. But that all changed when Polar introduced the new soft straps. These are much more comfortable to wear, and are so light that it would be possible to wear them all day under your normal clothes. Also the fact that the Transmitter can now be unplugged and separated from the strap at the end of your session helps contribute to a battery saving. As I said I am a BIG fan, hope this helps.
5 out of 5 Polar h/r strap
Newitts Verified Purchase (6 Oct 2014)
works brilliantly ( better than the garmin one That came with the heart rate monitor ) No complaints about it at all!!!!!
5 out of 5 More to it than you might think!
Newitts Verified Purchase (17 Jul 2014)
I bought this strap as a replacement for an igot-u Bluetooth HRM. I thought the strap electrodes had broken, and this was about the best price for a replacement. After receiving it (very quickly I might add) it turned out it wasn't the strap but my the HRM that had failed. Fortunately it was under warranty, and replaced, but after close inspection there is a significant difference in the straps. The polar strap has a rubber seal around the press stud mounting which seals against the HRM preventing ingress of sweat into the device. I'm guessing this was the cause of the failure of my HRM. So, as well as being comfortable, having a good adjustment range, it also may save my replacement HRM from failing the same way!
5 out of 5 good job

5 out of 5 My Polar RS300 works again
Newitts Verified Purchase (20 Jun 2014)
I washed my old strap and it became very unreliable. The problem was the strap and not the watch. This new strap fixes all issues and I rinse it in warm water after each use instead of soap, etc.
5 out of 5 Great Product
Newitts Verified Purchase (6 May 2014)
This is a far better product than the Garmin version - it works well with none of the peaks that one gives. Well worth the (less) money.
5 out of 5 polar strap
Newitts Verified Purchase (6 Apr 2014)
After 3 years my polar ft 4 watch was not functioning as it should after replacing the batteries I decided the problem was the strap having ordered on line from newitts.com it arrived within a couple of days I attached the heart rate monitor and it started working perfectly I've now had it for 6 weeks and am extremely satisfied .
5 out of 5 Polar strap replacement
Newitts Verified Purchase (9 Mar 2014)
Arrived promptly. Perfectly compatible with FT40. Bought to replace previous material version of strap which had become temperamental. This being a newer version with synthetic rubber skin contacts I understand to be more resilient.
5 out of 5 Polar soft chest strap
Newitts Verified Purchase (5 Feb 2014)
My polar HRM playing up and diagnosed the strap as being at fault. Got in touch with Polar who recommended Newitts. New strap is brilliant, softer texture to old strap and therefore more comfortable. Told my mate Mark who asked for the web address and on Monday saw him and he said his new strap was brilliant too and liked the improved texture.

5 out of 5 Maybe the best Polar chest band yet...
Newitts Verified Purchase (23 Jun 2013)
I've used Polar HRMs for 24 years almost every day or at least when I could drag myself off the sofa and out into this climate of ours! I think this is the fourth version I've used and very different from the previous models. Very light and flexible and works more reliably it seems to me. One negative the edges very light and thin plastic sensors have drilled a couple of tiny grazes on my chest but to be fair they have all models have done that to me at one time or the other. I like the lightness and overall comfort so no going back to my old one.

Newitts Verified Purchase (23 May 2013)
Bought it so I can clean one/let it dry between sessions, not much more to say than it works perfectly!!
5 out of 5 Great strap better than Garmin it replaced
Newitts Verified Purchase (3 May 2013)
I had been using a Garmin strap and monitor until the strap started to give irregular readings. Garmin wanted £40 for a new strap with clip on sender, however I just needed the strap, so have used the existing Garmin device with the Polar srtap, works superbly. Very pleased and considerably cheaper. (Garmin did replace my strap even though it was 3 months out of warranty, so have kept the Garmin as a spare)
You're making our website better ... thanks!
