Garmin Premium Run Heart Rate Monitor Strap Info

The Garmin HRM-RUN strap will plug the gap left if you have recently picked up a Fenix or a Forerunner watch, but opted out of the HRM-RUN bundle. This will be your gateway to the Garmin Running Dynamics metrics.

The HRM-Run works with an accelerometer in the module that measures torso movement allowing it to calculate three main running metrics in addition to the usual heart rate monitor measurements. First, it will allow you to track your vertical oscillation, measured in centimeters. Vertical oscillation is basically how much bounce you have in your step. That’s important because too much bounce means that you are losing energy that would be better used to propel you forward. And if you are already struggling to get your marathon legs under you, there is no point in wasting all that energy in vertical bounce. Knowing how much bounce you have and following intelligent methods to reduce it will improve your efficiency and performance.

The second metric that is unique to the HRM-RUN strap is how it logs ground contact time, measured in milliseconds. That is another measurement by which you can isolate the points of form that can be improved. The less time you spend with your foot on the ground, the sharper your cadence will get. You will also be less likely to injure yourself since running injuries happen when the foot is on the ground.

Cadence represents the third prong in the Garmin Running Dynamics metrics. If you haven’t been used to paying attention to your running cadence in the past, you may now find it a useful way to improve your running form and performance. Far from a cut and dry topic, there is a lot of debate and grey area when it comes to how each individual can best use cadence to improve performance, but once you learn your body’s predilections with the help of the HRM-RUN, then you can learn to use your cadence, and the ability to change it, like a cyclist uses gears.

The Garmin HRM-RUN is compatible with Fenix 2 and 3 watches, the Forerunner 620 and 920XT, as well as the Epix. It can also work as a normal heart rate monitor transmitter when paired with other ANT+ enabled devices. Harness your running metrics in order to improve your performance.
