There are tons of Smartwatches, fitness trackers and smart bands which collect all the data you want. However, there are few which actually make the sense of the metrics collected from your body and workouts. This is where Garmin’s new Forerunner 735XT sports tracker jumps in. The Sports wearable by the company is a multi-purpose data and stats finder.
The Garmin Forerunner 735XT is a sports tracker with lots of functions for all kind of sports. The device has a GPS for tracking your position and keeping a check on your routes as well as the company’s standard optical heart rate monitor. The device is capable of finding the data on the number of sports including running, swimming, hiking, cross-country skiing, and cycling. Apart from sports, the wearable is also capable of tracking your rest and sleep.
What’s more is that the Garmin Forerunner 735XT is the first Smartwatch ever to come with Strava’s “Suffer Score”. For those who don’t know, the suffer score is a measure of physical masochism calculated by comparing your elevated heart rate during a workout to your resting baseline. The larger the delta between heart rate zones and the longer you maintain it, the higher your score.
Apart from heart rate data, sleep and health tracking and most important of all the Sports tracking, Garmin Forerunner 735XT has all the features of a normal fitness tracker and a Smartwatch. The device will show you your incoming text messages, calls, notifications, and emails etc. All the data would be transferred with the help of Bluetooth.
The new Garmin wearable will also be able to connect with Garmin’s Connect IQ store so that the users can see new watch faces, apps, and are able to sync their fitness data with the Garmin’s online service. The users will also be able to share their best workout data publicly. The Garmin Forerunner 735XT is also compatible with the company’s Vector pedal tracking, Varia radar accessories, and a chest strap that will submit data like stride length, vertical ratio, and ground contact time balance to your Garmin fitness profile.
The Garmin Forerunner 735XT may not be filled with lots of new features but it is an all-in-one multipurpose sports, health and fitness tracker. Your workouts, sports routines and everything else will be available through only one platform. The Forerunner 735XT starts at a price of $450. The device is available in soft silicon black, gray or blue, and frost blue combinations and can be ordered from here.
