Constant HR Drops
Has anyone experienced drops in HR at a consistent rate like below which throws the average way off? Currently using Garmin Run HRM.
Could be related to your ANT+ stick being too far away from the HR Strap,
If you have an USB extension, you can try getting it more close to you.
Thanks Max. I’ll give it a go but it’s already within about 1m as I have my laptop right at my side.
I was curious whether it might be something to do with the HR strap broadcasting a ton of other running data even whilst cycling. Will test with a basic HR only strap and play with ANT+ USB position this week.
Thanks jtuk, let me know if you see any difference.
I managed to get to the bottom of it eventually.
I also had my HR strap connected via ANT+ to my Garmin 735XT so I could follow cadence, HR etc. on the handlebar. As soon as I disconnect the HR strap from the Garmin I get consistent HR measurement in Maximum Trainer whether it's the HRM Run or a basic ANT+ only HR strap.
A little annoying as it's nice to have HR with everything else on the handlebar but for now gone with disconnecting the Garmin to get accurate HR recording.
