Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works well, but isn’t built to last The strap on my Tickr fell apart in multiple places after just a year, as did many others, according to the reviews here and elsewhere online. I was hoping this replacement strap would have been a new design, but it’s not. Maybe if I’m lucky it will fall apart before the warranty is up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I shouldn't have to buy this... So long as it stays in once piece it is fine. I have had the same Garmin HRM for 6 years, works great, no problems. I recently added running to my formerly all cycling life and I was lured in by the extra features of the TickrX. After a year one of the snaps that this strap uses to connect to the TickrX fell off from corrosion. I rinse the straps down after I use them, but the design is flawed and this will happen to you too over time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strap failure I am now going on my 3rd strap within 1 year. The HRM is fine, connects well via ANT+ and BT, but the snap design is sub-standard as it does not stand up to normal use and has broke two times in the same fashion. Support is good as they have sent a replacement when it has failed but it is now out of warranty

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Premature failure Strap snap broke with minimal use. My Garmin HR has had 5-10 times more use and no issues. Too bad because the unit itself seems nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's okay The original that came with the sensor is as pictured. That's the one I wanted. That's the reason I reason I ordered from here. The one I received is not what is pictured. Furthermore, the first time I wore the replacement, it already started to curl. The material is also thinner and not as sturdy. I will look elsewhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Snap attachment to sensor is unsatisfactory From the time I got my TICKR, I found it difficult to unsnap the strap from the sensor. You have to kind of pry it off by the plastic cover around the snap. After about 10 months, the plastic around the snap broke off. I ordered another one and it broke in the first month. I asked for a replacement, which they quickly and gladly supplied. Not sure how long this one will last but not optimistic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken Fastener. The fastener housing broke very easily due to what appears to be thin cheap plastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They shouldn't have to sell extra straps Make your sraps better and we wont need to purchase these in just over a year. Great to offer replacements but they should be cheap if they are going to wear out so fast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flawed strap This product is totally incapable from resisting its publicised design life of 12 months: . Original strap lasted less than 7 months . First replacement strap lasted less than 10 months . Second replacement strap lasted less than 10 months . Third replacement strap lasted less than 8 months Appears that Wahoo TICKR's business model is based on customers spending $20 once or twice a year for replacement straps!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad design; plastic tabs broke off immediately This broke within a month of using it. While the strap functions well as a heart rate monitor, having to unsnap it to take it off is a terrible design. The snaps are very hard to undo, and the plastic tabs broke off within a couple of weeks, leaving sharp edges that cut into the skin on my chest whenever I used the strap. A number of my peers use the strap as well and many have had the same trouble with the tabs breaking off. I ended up using the Wahoo sensor with a strap from Polar; the attachment points are the same distance apart. I'd never buy another wahoo strap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Strap Design Im am going on my 3rd strap. The corrosion is one thing and now the black caps at the end of the strap are failing as well. I thought of ways to fix it (i.e. electrical tape) but that would interefere with the signal. Unfortunately this is an item that always breaks when you need it. Either during or directly before a workout is when it happens. If your heart is set on this item, no pun intended, then you better build up an inventory buffer of 3 straps. I am staying away from this thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Corrosion leads to the snaps coming off I will be on my 4th one. I have all wahoo products that I love but this is by far the worst design of any product. They should last over a year. Only reason I keep coming back is I have the tickr and these are comfortable its just I plan on spending $20 yearly on straps. Wahoo said to rinse and clean after use so I tried that this time and Im not sure it helped any.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Time for a different HR monitor While the monitor is great, the strap keeps failing due to corrosion. Could easily be redesigned for longevity, but they choose to profit off of poor design. It’s a shame, because have been happy with all other products I own, the Kickr, Climb, Bolt, Cadence, etc. Am moving on from HR monitor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish quality Lasted 3 months before the fastening broke. Poor design. Unless they change the strap don't buy a heart rate monitor from wahoo.
Date published: 2018-10-30
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not have the quality I got used to in Wahoo p This is clearly one of the weakest products of Wahoo. It just broke after 8 months due to sweat salt corrosion. It should be improved quickly, otherwise next time a need a new stap, I will by a product from a different brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It won't last I'm now on to my 3rd strap in 18 months. Used in training 5-6 days per week, the snap pad simply breaks off with extended use due to sweat salt corrosion. Sorry Wahoo but that's now 3 strikes and your out...! Time you redesigned to make a great product a lot more durable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality strap, not durable, didn't last The strap needs replacing after 12 months- the sensors commenced peeling off several months ago. I've never had issues with straps from the longstanding HRM manufacturer which are well made and durable. The wahoo strap is NOT. The transmitter is also cheaply constructed and I've had to be careful uncliping it after use for fear of it pulling apart. While still functional, I expected better

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pads peel away from strap I've had the strap about a year and the monitor pads have completely peeled away from the strap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Short life spam It lasted less than one year. I´m a guy that almost never sweat but it´s impossible to don´t sweat a little bit during training sessions (bike) - but the Wahoo engineers forgot to care about corrosion by sweat in the rivets (that fixes the tikr on the strap).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from the worst wahoo product going Does not stay up due to: no silicone or similar grippers, the adjustment point not staying fixed (i.e. easily loosens) during a session. It basically doesn't work. It's also overly dense/heavy (could be open weave rubber/silicone in places instead) so just gets drenched in sweat and requires washing after every indoor session.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart After wearing daily for two months, strap is falling apart. I do sweat, but come on. Ordering another strap today. heart monitor is great, need to toughen up the strap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Design flaws, poor support for failed design I used this strap most days for about a year and a half. Recently, I started getting odd reading from my HRM and soon after, one of the snaps on the strap broke. It appears sweat caused the metal snap to corrode. I contacted Wahoo customer service and they asked for photos of the broken strap and for the original receipt, I provided both and they responded by saying that the strap was no longer under warranty and they offered a 20% discount code for a replacement strap. This wasn't the response that I had hoped for. I felt it would have been appropriate to provide a free replacement strap as this was not a cheap HRM.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy and unintuitive design Regarding fit – it often slips down my torso unless I have it overtightened which then chaffs my sides. The binding for the sensors have also separated from the strap after 6 months. The snaps often come undone at the worst times – Few things are as distracting as a loose chest strap stuck inside your jersey while you're at 98% in a 90 minute race.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constantly untiing Device as device is truly great, in half year I had only 1 erroneous measuring when my heart rate suddenly for few seconds jumped over 200 when in reality was around 130. But strap system is horrible. Constantly untiing, must set always belt very tight, for normal walking is much better. Ordered replacement belt, slightly better results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very durable I used this product for land based training only. No exposure to water (swimming) or salt water. However in a year's time the snap failed. When i look back on the number of times I actually used the strap it was 38 times. Can a more durable strap be made? I would think the strap has to last longer than one year. I read a lot of other people having the same issue, is there a manufacturing defect?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality The original strap that came with my TickR only last about a year before the metal snaps separated from the strap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality strap I had to purchase this strap because the one that came with my HRM broke after just over one year. The metal connector between the strap and the HRM separated. Seems like something like,this should last much longer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The clips appear defective I have had the unit a month (yeah Father's Day). It was part of the bundle package. The computer (Bolt) is great!! However the heart rate strap unclips WAY too easily. Any manipulation of the strap causes the unit to unclip, and this is a huge hassle while riding the bike. Not sure if I would recommend this product. Have called in to customer support several times and finally left a message...nobody ever appears to be "live". Even the Chat option was a dud.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Construction I have bought two TICKR heart rate monitors from Wahoo (one for myself and one for my wife). The devices work great with iPhone through both Endomondo and Strava. The strap was comfortable and stayed in place well for my uses (mainly cycling). The one problem I ran into was that sensors become easily unglued from the fabric strap. This has happened with both of our straps. My strap lasted a few months before; however, my wife's strap began to separate immediately. Strap seperation does not appear to be covered by warrenty through Wahoo. If you are in the United States, purchasing replacement straps may be an option (one per season?). Unfortunately, shipping costs to Canada are prohibitive for such a small item.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Comes unglued easily Pads come unglued if you wash it with hot water or put it in the dryer. Took me a second strap to figure out that they are pretty sensitive to heat. One would think they would design them for hot water since it's a normal desire to take a sweaty, stinky strap and wash it in hot water?
