Small wrist top GPS device with easy to read color display, intuitive user interface with simple button operations, built-in heart rate monitor and G-sensor to record data during outdoor and indoor trainings, data exchange via BlueTooth or USB cradle, supports Garmin Connect and LiveTracking. Suitable for all kinds of sports activities, especially running.

As a personal training assistant, the GARMIN Forerunner 225 records the travelled path (track), distance, time and pace/speed, your heart rate using a built-in, optical heart rate monitor on the back of the watch (no chest belt required), computes the calories burned and helps to achieve your personal workout goals. The device is very easy to use, supports multiple languages and has an extremely sensitive antenna. It is the perfect partner for any outdoor activities. Supports data exchange via BlueTooth or USB cradle. The optional mounting kit for handlebar makes the Forerunner 225 also well suited as a bike computer.
