Garmin Forerunner 235 – GPS Watch W/ Wrist-Based Heart Rate
Get complete, real-time run statistic, including wrist-based heart rate data, with the Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS sports watch. Forerunner’s advanced GPS receiver keeps close tabs on the distance you’ve traveled when you lace up your shoes and step out the door. The Auto Lap function records your lap times at whatever distance you choose, you don’t even need to push a button. The Forerunner 235 counts your steps, calories burned, monitors your sleep quality, and will alert you to move when you’ve been sitting idle for too long. In addition to keeping track of your run and activity data, Forerunner allows you to share that data and monitor your progress with the Garmin Connect app. Garmin Connect is Garmin’s free online community where you can save, plan, and share your activities. Additionally, this Forerunner GPS is designed to withstand water pressures equal to a depth of 50 meters, so you can take it with you in the rain, snow, and sunshine.
A built-in accelerometer lets the Forerunner 235 capture distance and pace data when you’re running on an indoor track or treadmill. With a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, Forerunner 235 lasts up to 9 days in watch mode and up to 11 hours in GPS mode, enough for several long-distance runs. You can record up to 7 activities, so even if you can’t sync your GPS watch with the Garmin Connect app present in your smartphone, you won’t lose any vital Activity data. Heart rate compatibility allows you to train with heart rate zones so you know when to push it on that last mile or when not to. Garmin utilizes Mio Heart Rate Technology that measures heart rate at the wrist. This GPS Watch also provides more accurate information about your calories burned. Additional features like live tracking, where you can allow your coach, family, and friends to follow your run in real-time. Garmin Forerunner 235 is not just exceptional for amateur runners, but would also make a good secondary running GPS watch for seasoned pros.
