For those who take their running seriously, the Garmin Forerunner 225 will take your training to the next level thanks to the optical heart rate sensor on the back of the watch. By measuring your heart rate via your wrist you’ll never have to worry about wearing a chest strap again. The advanced Mio Heart Rate Technology accurately shows your heart’s beats per minute both during workouts and throughout the entire day, giving you insights into your peak level of performance and resting heart rate.
With Garmin’s ever reliable GPS functionality you’ll get accurate, live updates about your pace and distance when running outdoors. Additional features of the Garmin Forerunner 225 include an accelerometer to track indoor workouts where the GPS can’t function in addition to measuring all activity throughout the day - showing your steps, distance walked and calories burned. The Garmin Forerunner 225 can also measure the amount of sleep you get each night which is valuable data for serious athletes. The Garmin Forerunner 225 can also help you to remain active during the day when you’re not exercising via its inactivity sensor - if you’re sitting around doing nothing for too long the forerunner will notify you that it’s probably time to get out of your chair and stretch those legs.
The Garmin Forerunner 225 makes for a perfect watch for triathletes as well thanks to its 50m water resistant design. The colour display also makes for easy viewing in direct sunlight and looks great on the wrist.
The Forerunner 225 will also keep track of all of your personal records which can be easily uploaded to Garmin Connect via bluetooth so you can show off your blazing times to the world.

Garmin Connect Mobile
Out of the box, Forerunner 225 sets your zones based on your age-adjusted max heart rate estimate of 220 minus your age. You can adjust these zones either on the watch or via Garmin Connect Mobile (with compatible smartphone), allowing you to customize your watch as needed. At Garmin Connect, our free online community, you can also create advanced workouts or download free training plans, send to your watch and get coach-like guidance.
The Forerunner 225 has a built-in accelerometer. This allows it to capture distance and pace data when you're running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. It even doubles as an activity tracker, counting the steps and calories you burn all day. Plus, it will remind you to move if you've been sitting for more than an hour. When you get that cue to move, just walk for a couple of minutes to reset the inactivity indicator.
