Garmin Forerunner 235
GPS running watch with wrist-based heart rate monitoring
The all new Forerunner 235 with improved battery life and Heart Rate functionality, is designed to take runners further and faster than ever before.
The Forerunner 235 uses Garmin’s Elevate, optical sensor that measures heart rate at the wrist, giving you the option to run without a strap. Its colourful gauge identifies your heart rate zone and beats per minute in real time. A built-in accelerometer captures distance and pace data when you’re running on an indoor track or treadmill. Once you’re done running, it doubles as an activity tracker1, counting your steps and calories throughout the day. Forerunner 235 offers connected features2 like automatic uploads to Garmin Connect, Garmin’s free online community where you can save, plan and share your activities. Additional connected features include live tracking, which allows your friends to follow you and see your stats in real time. If you run with headphones, audio prompts will keep you on pace with lap and lap times. Compatibility with Connect IQ will allow you to customise your watch with free downloadable watch faces, widgets, applications and data fields.
