Rated 1 out of 5 by Iamallbeancatalog still training without HR
I ordered the Garmin Fenix 3 watch from LLBean in December. I ordered the HR monitor strap separately at the end of April from LLBean as well. Unfortunately the 2 are not compatible. It's frustrating that LLBean does not sell compatible equipment for it's products (even from the same manufacturer).
I've followed the instructions to a "T" to sync the 2 together. It hasn't worked after multiple attempts. Sending back the HR monitor.

I am pairing this with the Garmin Vivo Smart wristband. The only issue I've run into is the screws for the battery compartment. Even the smallest phillips screwdriver does not fit correctly, the depth of the interface is the problem, the screw is too shallow, the screwdriver is too sharp. While you won't need to change the battery often, you may need to remove the battery for a hard reset that most wireless devices require every so often.
