Garmin Forerunner® 235 | Features and Benefits

The Heart Zones, Inc team loves the Garmin Forerunner 235. As one of many models featured in the Garmin Forerunner series, the 235 is a uniquely sleek design and comes with many bells and whistles that runners and all athletes enjoy.

GPS Running Watch and Heart Rate Monitor

Forerunner 235 with Elevate™ heart rate technology² measures heart rate at the wrist 24/7, giving you the option to run without a strap. Its colorful gauge identifies your heart rate zone and beats per minute in real time. The GPS features for runners help you measure your pace and distance during your training and racing. The combination of a GPS running watch along with heart rate monitoring falls in line with Heart Zones’ love of letting data drive your fitness.

Customize Your Watch and Your Training

No two runners are the same, and neither are their goals. Set yourself up to reach yours by downloading advanced workouts and training plans to your watch from Garmin Connect. You can even customize your data fields, and download watch faces, widgets and applications all for free at Connect IQ.

On and Off the Road Running

A built-in accelerometer captures distance and pace data when you’re running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. Once you’re done running, it doubles as an activity tracker², counting your steps and calories throughout the day. It also reminds you to move after sitting for more than an hour. Forerunner 235 is compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites to locate your position quickly and precisely whether you’re running deep in the woods or near tall buildings.

It’s Simple. Period.

Forerunner 230   Concise, easy-to-understand charts, graphs, maps and more let you view your activities, track progress toward goals and wirelessly upload and share relevant data directly with the online Garmin Connect network. So, you can compete with friends or family members on weekly step or running challenges — and compare your results in real time, using the LiveTrack feature. You can also use the app’s wireless connectivity links to receive current weather conditions, forecasts and smart notifications right on your compatible Garmin device.
