ABOUT THE GARMIN FORERUNNER 235
Running can be complicated. The concept isn’t overwhelming, but with so many things to learn and keep track of, it quickly becomes more than just putting one foot in front of the other.
Yet while terms like “calories burned”, “pace”, “stride”, “gate” and “threshold” can make running seem tricky, it certainly shouldn’t be. And that’s where GPS running watches come to the rescue.
Garmin has introduced a line of GPS watches: some for overall fitness, others specifically designed for runners. Each comes loaded with features to keep you up to date on your fitness habits, from the ultimate pro to the first-timer.
Along with the act of running becoming an increasingly complicated endeavor, the same can be said for a number of fitness devices available today. Fortunately, if there’s one thing the Garmin Forerunner 235 Watch has going for it, it’s simplicity.
WRIST-BASED HEART RATE MONITORING
Using Garmin Elevate wrist heart rate technology, the Forerunner 235 monitors your heart rate whenever it’s around your wrist. If you’re into running or fitness at all, this is the feature you definitely don’t want to be without. Monitoring your heart rate is so critical when it comes to knowing how effectively you’re working out and keeping an active heart rate is the best way to burn those calories.
Right behind heart-rate monitoring on the list of important running features is a finely-honed GPS. The Forerunner 235’s built-in GPS keeps track of your workouts, including pace, distance and altitude. That information gets sent right to your Garmin Connect app, helping you keep track of your progress and letting you see just how much that hard work is paying off.
We talked earlier about simplicity, and this is what we mean. The Garmin Forerunner 235 – in conjunction with the Garmin Connect app – uses clear, concise maps to make it easy to see your progress. With vital metrics like your distance covered, pace taken and calories burned all featured prominently on the app, you’ll know right away just how good that last workout was. All of that data on the app can also be shared with friends and family, allowing you to create a weekly goal or step challenge to help motivate those close to you.
Don’t worry about having to take out your phone every few minutes. The Forerunner 235 GPS Watch receives smart notifications right on the device, so your e-mails, texts and other important alerts will be right there on your wrist.
CUSTOMIZATION AT ITS FINEST
By using the Garmin Face It app, you can download different images for your watch face, giving your device a bit of flair and personality. You can use pictures you’ve taken and upload them onto your watch face for a truly unique look. And who doesn’t love that?
