Looking for a heart rate monitor that is compatible with my exercise bike.

I recently purchased a Schwinn Airdyne Pro on the advice of a doctor (ortho doc after surgery) and looking for a heart rate monitor that is compatable.  Schwinn requires a non-coded monitor. This is the strap only transmitter.

Ideally I would like to have a compatable watch to use with strap so I can use for both the Airdyne and hiking when released to do so by my doctor.  I'm 72 and looking forward to hiking again. 

I miss the REI employees

@DJK68 Thanks for reaching out!

Based on what we can see in the specs for the Schwinn Airdyne Pro (requires a Polar Heart Rate strap that transmits at 4.5 - 5.5 kHz) the best option for you would be the Polar H10 Heart Rate Sensor. It is also Bluetooth and ANT+ enabled so it will work with a variety of watches and smartphones.

Hopefully this helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

@REI-JohnJ Bought the Polar H10 from REI and it will not pair with the Schwinn Airdyne Pro.

any suggestions?
