Garmin International Inc today announced two of the company’s latest GPS running watches, The Forerunner 230 and the Forerunner 235.
The watches will track distance, pace, time, heart rate1 keeping runners on pace for their next personal record.
The Forerunner 235 is the first product to feature Garmin Elevate wrist heart rate technology, which displays heart rate and zone on an easy-to-read, colorful graphic interface, so runners new to tracking heart rate can train more effectively.
The Forerunner 230 pairs with a chest-worn strap to get all the same data right on the watch. When connected to a compatible smartphone2, runners can stay connected with the 230 and 235’s smart notifications and motivated during workouts with audio prompts that announce their lap times.
Daily activity tracking3 features including all-day heart rate tracking on the 235 keep runners apprised of their all-day steps, calories and sleep. The 230 and 235 are also compatible with the Connect IQ smartwatch platform. With Connect IQ, users are able to customize their watch with additional apps, widgets, watch faces and data fields.
