Garmin release the Forerunner 735XT
Need a new watch this season? How about the Forerunner 735XT, the latest lightweight multisport-capable running watch from Garmin? It features 24/7 heart rate monitoring, without the need for an additional strap, and built-in activities including running, cycling, swimming, multisport, hiking, XC skiing, strength training, paddle sports and cardio.
Connect IQ compatible, the Forerunner 735XT is the first device to come with the Strava Live Suffer Score app pre-installed so users can track how hard they have been working based on heart rate data. Users can download additional free custom apps, watch faces, data fields and widgets from the Connect IQ™ store to further customise the Forerunner 735XT.
“The Forerunner 735XT is the ultimate GPS smartwatch for athletes who want dialed-in data for training and a lighter load on race day,” said Andrew Silver, Senior Product Manager Fitness, EMEA. “It offers comprehensive data for all of their activities, keeps them connected with smart features including notifications and automatic uploads to Garmin Connect, and lets them customise their device to fit their needs with Connect IQ’s free apps, data fields and more.”
Triathletes can add a chest strap during training and receive data including stride length, ground contact time balance, vertical ratio and more.
