Heart Rate Equipment

About Heart Rate Monitors

Concept2 Performance Monitors (PMs) are designed to receive and display heart rate data. The PM will display your heart rate as long as you are wearing a compatible heart rate (HR) chest strap (see below). If you are using a Polar H9 chest strap with some PM4s, PM3, PM2 or PM2+, you will also need Concept2’s heart rate receiver and cable.

Concept2 sells Polar and Garmin heart rate equipment. Refer to the chart below for compatibility information.
