QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Hello Is this version also suitable for canoeing (double paddle)? Best regards, Sandra
If I were to do both ocean canoeing and stand up paddle boarding, I would opt for the OC2. The hardware is the same in all of them. With the OC2 you can choose between 500m and 1000m splits, so it can be used for both. However, if the Ocean Canoe travels very smoothly through the water, the OC2 may find it difficult to pick up the stroke rate.
Do I need a specific heart rate belt or can I use a conventional one like from garmin?
Hi, So long as the heart rate belt connects using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) you should be fine. You would have to check the specifications for the belt.
We oc and sup. What’s the best choice for a speed coach for both? Thanks.
I would choose the OC2. The hardware is the same in all of them. The OC2 lets you choose between /500m and /1000m splits. So it can be used for both. Now if the ocean canoe is very smooth through the water, it may have a hard time picking up stroke rate though.
