Garmin is the gold standard of the GPS running watch, and with the Forerunner 225, they finally got into the zone with runners who want accurate heart rate measurements without the fuss of a strap or extra apparatus. The accurate monitor is built into the back of the watch face so it records heart rate straight from your wrist.
Featuring a bright and colorful digital display, distance, calories burned, pace and heart rate tracking, the Garmin Forerunner 225 running watch ensures you’re in your zone from warm-up through maximum output, so you can focus on making your efforts line-up with your goals.
Even if you love running solo, you’ll appreciate the free Garmin community that provides virtual workout assistance including free training plans and advanced workouts sent right to your watch, plus informal coaching to help you improve your runs. And friends and family can access live tracking so they can follow your progress when you compete in races.
The GPS aspect that Garmin is know for in its running watches always takes you a step beyond with distance and pace calculated, and a built-in accelerometer pushes that functionality up to the next level so you can track your progress on an indoor track or treadmill. And just when you think it’s safe to rest, your Garmin Forerunner 225 will remind you when you’ve been sedentary for more than an hour, like a good fitness buddy (that also needs its own energy boost) would do.
