Hi, have an adventurer watch, trying to attach a heart monitor strap. Polar and Garmin straps I own don't work. Before I splash out on the TomTom version thought I'd check connection. When I go to sensors, heart I have three option on, off & external. I am assuming it is extetnal that is correct? All the demo videos don't deal with the adventurer so only seem to have 2 options; on or off. Gerty

    Garmin and Polar will not work because they are most likely ANT+ and Analog straps respectively, not Bluetooth straps. You need a BT strap in order to be able to sync it to the watch. It does not need to be a TT one, any BT strap will work. A strap is external.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
