The Garmin HRM-Pro Plus is here to make indoor workouts way, way more useful

Garmin has released a new chest strap heart rate monitor, the Garmin HRM-Pro Plus, which provides new metrics when you workout indoors. We got our first glimpse of the new heart rate monitor last month, when it appeared briefly on Garmin's own website as part of a bundle with the Forerunner 955 Solar.

Earlier this week we got another glimpse when the device was listed momentarily on Amazon's Dutch website. Again, the premature listing was swiftly pulled. Now, however, he HRM-Pro Plus is finally available to buy and strap onto your chest to track your heart rate and much more besides. 

Like the HRM-Run and HRM-Pro, the new monitor detects a wide array of running stats while you train based on the movement of your chest, including cadence, vertical oscillation, and ground contact time – all metrics that are very difficult to track from the wrist.

In addition to that data, the HRM-Pro Plus will also transmit pace and distance data to your Garmin watch during indoor track and treadmill sessions – stats that were previously only available during outdoor runs with GPS tracking enabled.

The HRM-Pro Plus uses ANT+ and Bluetooth to transmit data to your Garmin watch, Edge cycling computer (including the newly launched Edge Explore 2), the Tacx Training App, and other compatible fitness equipment.

The HRM-Pro Plus is available to buy now direct from Garmin for $129.99 / £119.99.  If that's beyond your budget, here at Advnture we're rounding up all this year's best Amazon Prime Day Garmin deals, including offers on heart rate monitors, GPS watches, and cycle computers.
