Garmin Sports and Fitness Watches

LISTING ORDER >> All Garmin fitness products are listed in approximate PRICE ORDER. Obsolete/legacy products are listed towards the END

We have sold, tested & reviewed all the models of Garmin GPS and Heart Rate Monitor products since 1999. Garmin have been producing some fantastic training watches and bike computers for many years. The key products are the Garmin Forerunner range (wrist worn GPS), the Garmin Edge range (handlebar / stem mounted GPS) and the popular Garmin Fitness range (Vivosmart, Vivofit & Vivoactive). For the hardcore outdoor enthusiast, or multisporters looking for something bombproof then we recommend the Garmin Fenix range. If you are thinking of getting a Garmin Forerunner please take a few minutes to browse our complete range review from the Forerunner 101 in 2003 to the latest products

Strapless HRM for Garmin

Garmin joined the strapless heart rate revolution with their Forerunner 225. They now have the Forerunner 235, Vivoactive HR, Forerunner 735XT and Vivosmart HR utilising their own Garmin Elevate optical heart rate sensors. The most popular from the current range is the Forerunner 235 featuring colour coded heart rate zone indicators, great for HiiT training and similar where multiple heart rate intensities are utilised.

The Future of the Chest Strap?

Garmin extract a lot more data from the traditional heart rate monitor belt than just PULSE. The ECG signal extracted from the HRM strap contains valuable data like RR interval that can be used to help determine if the user is over-trained or under-trained. Many Garmin products have Training Load indication, this is a valuable tool in anyone's training programme. Their top of the range products will continue to utilise a chest strap as it contains a wealth of physiological data that cannot be extracted from an optical pulse reader directly from the wrist.

What's the best Garmin Sports watch?

Which is the best Garmin fitness product depends on who you are and what you want to use your heart rate monitor / sports watch for. For the vast majority of our customers with a desire to get fit, stay healthy, improve activity levels then we would recommend the Garmin Vivoactive HR as their best all rounder. With optical "off the wrist" heart rate monitoring, built-in GPS, activity tracker, smartphone connectivity, step counter and much more.. For those who primarily RUN then I'd have to recommend the Forerunner 235 reviewed here. If you are a dedicated cyclist, then we highly recommend the microsized, feature packed Edge 25

  • Optional Chest Strap style heart rate sensor

    Garmin Vivofit 2

    A discrete personal activity monitor that can be worn all day and every day. The Vívofit 2 follows your activity progress 24/7. It can stay activated for more than 12 months on the same battery. Activate sleep mode and the vívofit will monitor the quality of your sleep, rest and recovery.

    Vívofit learns users’ current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily goal. As milestones are met, vívofit will adjust the goal for the next day. Research shows prolonged periods of inactivity, such as sitting at a desk, decreases the body’s production of fat-burning enzymes

    ** TOP 3 for CYCLISTS **

    Garmin are working at full speed ahead lately. This is the latest new edition to Garmin's GPS bike computers, the Edge 20 and Edge 25. These micro GPS units replace the entry level Edge 200.

    We really like them. Big clear display and easy to press large external buttons. The Edge 25 is the one we'd recommend as it supports ANT+ accessories (Heart Rate & Cadence) and also features Smart Connectivity to your phone for data upload. We'd fully expect this great new micro sized GPS bike computer to be the most popular unit on the road for some time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    It also features a barometric pressure sensor to measure the number of stairs climbed per day. This is a great feature giving you a daily stairs climbed count as well as activity intensity, calories burnt, steps taken and distance covered... plus motivational time to move alerts after periods of inactivity.

    Garmin Forerunner 235

    ** TOP 3 for RUNNERS **

    If you are wondering what exactly is the difference between the Forerunner 230 and this one... well let us tell you not much but quite a lot. Let us explain. The F230 gets it's heart rate from an optional heart rate sensor belt (ANT+) - HOWEVER, just like the F225 and other strapless heart rate monitors the Forerunner 235 picks up heart rate FROM THE WRIST.

    The F235 uses Garmin's own Elevate technology (unlike the 225 which uses Mio's) to collect heart rate date directly from the wrist. No chest strap required.

It's Bluetooth compatible giving access to smartphone notifications such as incoming call alert and data upload to Garmin Connect APP.

    Well thank you very much Garmin... having contented myself with my Edge 510 for general bike training for over 18 months I had pretty much convinced myself the 510 did EVERYTHING I wanted it to do.. then came the Edge 1000 with Garmin Segments... nah, not for me.. I'm a Strava man...

    Then the new Edge 520 comes along with generally cleaned up 510 specification PLUS STRAVA SEGMENTS ! Looks like I'll be upgrading....

    Garmin Forerunner 630

    The Forerunner 630 takes the Forerunner 230 and adds Advanced Running Dynamics and Garmin popular Virtual Partner Feature. With Advanced Running Dynamics you have access to ground contact time, balance and stride length metrics. This feedback allows you (or your coach) to check your running symmetry and stride, monitoring overall running efficiency. It can also calculate your estimated VO2 max and then predict your race times for several distances, providing you with a target time for your next run.

    The F630 is an ADVANCED watch for runners who really do work at shaving fractions of seconds from their times. If you are not overly bothered about running your next race as a PB then you may want to stick with the Forerunner 230 or, my personal favourite, the Forerunner 235 with off the wrist heart rate sensing.

    ** TOP 3 for TRIATHLON **

    The Garmin Forerunner 735XT is the latest GPS sports watch from Garmin to utilise their Elevate heart rate sensors. The Forerunner 735XT is aimed at TRIATHLETES who want some level of freedom from their heart rate monitor chest strap. Please note, we have yet to have tested the 735XT so our review is limited to what we have read elsewhere.

    If you are familiar with the Forerunner 920XT and the Forerunner 235 then you can look at this new model as a combination of the two. The multisport functionality of the 920XT and the style and strapless heart rate technology from the 235. Note. The 735XT can be used with a HRM-tri & HRM-swim belt for a more accurate HR recording.

    Garmin can be seen as the innovators of the pedal based power monitoring system. It took many years in development to get it right, but it has changed the way many cyclists ride. Riding within a POWER range is an assured method of ensuring you get to the finish line with just an ounce left in reserve. It will take some time to get used to using Power Pedals, but, for the competitive cyclist, monitoring pedal power is no a MUST rather than a nice to have.

Just when we thought the competition might be getting a slight edge over Garmin they release the Forerunner 225 with OPTICAL heart rate. This was the FIRST Garmin GPS sports watch that does NOT need a chest strap for heart rate analysis. This model was originally released in 2014

    Garmin recruited the proven and tested Mio optical HR sensor to provide OFF THE WRIST heart rate monitoring. Add to that an ACTIVITY TRACKER with sleep monitoring and colour coded HR zone training and you have the perfect fitness watch for 90% of the population !

    Garmin Forerunner 620

    >> REPLACED by Forerunner 630

    There is a new version to this model, the Forerunner 630. However, this is still a highly recommend GPS running watch. The Forerunner 620 offers advanced features like recovery advisor, race predictor and VO2 max estimate to help runners train smarter and achieve new race goals. When used with the NEW HRM-Run™ heart rate sensor the 620 provides feedback on running form. For indoor training, like a treadmill, the 620 and uses it's own built-in accelerometer tracks distance and pace (no need to external stride sensors)

    Colour coded high-resolution display gauge makes it easy to interpret RECOVERY status. Green means they are good to go. When runners see red on the display with a suggested recovery time of more than 3 days, they might consider taking a rest day or doing a very easy recovery run

    Garmin Forerunner 910XT

    >> REPLACED by Forerunner 920XT

    The perfect all rounder? It certainly was when it came out as there wasn't much competition then. It has now been replaced by the Garmin Forerunner 920XT but it still offers great value for money. Many people still PREFER the real buttons instead of the 920XT's touchscreen.

    The Garmin Forerunner 910XT moves easily from wrist to handlebar with the optional quick release and bike mounts. Forerunner 910XT categorises multisport activities in one workout and can also log transition time in the processs. Triathletes can analyse their performance from start to finish. Up to 20 hours of battery life it should be fine for even the longest event.

    Garmin Fēnix 2

    >> REPLACED by Fenix3

    Fēnix 2 was the first Garmin wristworn device to include advanced running and fitness features in the rugged form factor of an ABC watch. The Fēnix 2 displays real-time performance data such as distance, time, pace and heart rate (optional extras), as well as the advanced workouts and running dynamics introduced with the Forerunner 620 runner watch.

    Like the Forerunner 620, fēnix 2 can estimate users’ VO2 max to evaluate their fitness level. Plus, fēnix 2 can calculate recovery time and perform a recovery check after intense workouts, so users know how much time to rest before they’re ready for the next hard running workout.

    It should be pointed out that the Fenix2 has been surpassed by the new Fenix3 GPS/ABC/HRM with Bluetooth connectivity for incoming notifications from your smartphone and connectivity to Garmin's Connect App for upload of training sessions directly to your smart device.

  • A Brief History…

    It all started in 1996. As a sports science student I wanted to promote the use of Heart Rate Monitors in exercise. The business went online in 1999. In 14 years we sold HRM's to over 300,000 customers.

    After a short retail back we're now back with the new online store selling ONLY Polar. We still offer impartial advice & test other heart rate monitor brands. Our aim however, is to introduce you to Polar's products as an alternative to Garmin, Fitbit, Suunto or TomTom.
