So I bought this to have on my watch as I'm not a fan of rubber straps...

http://m.ebay.com/itm/290760986497?txnId=1007791216019

Now when I received it the strap covers the heart rate sensor so was a bit useless in day to day use for me as I use it a lot.

So I measured things up, cut a notch in both straps and heated the cut area over a flame to seal the edges and voila!

I'm quite pleased with the result and the heart rate sensor works fine. I'll have to unstrap to charge but that's not a biggie really.

The heart rate sensor still has to touch your arm though.

The sensor doesn't have to touch your skin to work. As long as its not too far away it will pick it up fine. The sensor uses the light to measure your pulse so as long as the sensor can pick it up it will work.

Mine gives me the same results with this strap or the original strap...
