Heart Rate Measured at the Wrist
Forerunner 235 uses Garmin Elevate™ heart rate technology. An optical sensor measures heart rate 24/7 at the wrist, giving you the option to run without a strap. Its colourful gauge identifies your heart rate zone and beats per minute in real time.

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 customise 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.
When you download the free Garmin Connect Mobile app to your smartphone, Forerunner 235 offers automatic uploads¹ to our online community where you can save, plan and share your activities. You can also view your data on a desktop by plugging in your device and opening Garmin Connect on a web browser. Additional connected features include live tracking, which allows your friends and fans to follow along and see your stats in real time. If you run with your smartphone³, audio prompts will keep you on pace with lap and lap time reminders.
