I use a Garmin HRM (HRM 1G)....and lost the o ring when i replaced the battery....oops. contacted Garmin about getting a replacement. They wont provide a replacement, nor can the give you the size to allow you to source a replacement.

long story short. i have bought a replacement. actually i have bought 50!...if anyone finds themselves in a similar circumstance i am happy to post a couple on for a £1.00 to cover postage etc.

    Hi robbroo

    I would like some as I too lost mine when replacing battery. I have tried to seal with other methods but only ended up with a wet battery after a couple of rides :oops:

    Cheers

    Hi robbroo I have sent a pm but not sure if it worked or not. First time user of the pm system.

  • Nightmare , ive just lost mine aswell ,

    Does anyone know where i can purchase one ? They are so small its probably in the hoover bag :oops:

    Now the readings are playing up because the battery gets wet inside.

    Cant seem to find any replacements online, do i have to purchase a whole new HRM just because of this tiny o - ring ?
  • if it's any help I found myself in same situation and found this supplier on ebay

    You want to get the 23mm ID x 1mm CS ones

    Mine came this morning and they are a perfect fit.
  • Nice one mate ,
