Garmin Forerunner 225

The Garmin Forerunner 225 is a fast paced running watch for runners that prefer long winding roads over short weekend jogs.

The sports watch comes with all the usual Garmin bells and whistles: GPS, activity tracking and sleep tracking. However, the Garmin Forerunner 225 also comes with a built-in heart rate monitor in the wrist; a first for Garmin sports watches. The new features gives you even more reason to strap on a Garmin Forerunner 225 for your next run.

Why do you need it?

Garmin produces the best sports watches on the market, and each one is dedicated to tracking your performance. While some sports watches only do half the job, the Garmin Forerunner 225 does the complete job and sends you the metrics as proof.

When you aren't running or working on a new PB, the Garmin Forerunner 225 goes well with everyday attire. The sports watch's subtle colours are a nice change from others on the market, making you stand out less from the crowd.

Making the Garmin Forerunner 225 such a great purchase is the built-in heart rate monitor. No longer will you need a chest strap like other Garmin sports watches. Now you can see exactly where your optimal heart rate zone is when working out. With more knowledge you can burn far more calories.

Once you finish your workouts the fantastic Garmin Connect app allows you to read your performance data right on your smartphone. Once again, Garmin has made tracking your activities simple with a brilliant sports watch.

Compare

The built-in heart rate monitor sets the Garmin Forerunner 225 apart from other sports watches – and Garmin sports watches in particular. Few watches have the style of Garmin and can back up what is inside.

The Forerunner 225 also allows you to track your sleep, so you know if you are getting quality hours of shut eye.

Final verdict

The Garmin Forerunner 225 is an amazing sports watch, and what it delivers makes it well worth the price. The Garmin Forerunner 225 is perfect for anyone into outdoor sports or working out; and if you want to train and look like a professional, this is the sports watch you should wear.

The built-in wrist heart rate monitor is one of the biggest additions to the Garmin family. Its inclusion in the Forerunner 225 is significant and will improve on your goals whether they are weight loss or triathlon preparation.
