Elevate wrist heart rate technology monitors your heart rate at the wrist 24/7 so you can run without a chest strap. Connected Features When paired with a compatible smartphone, Forerunner 35 pulls text, social media and other notifications, and it alerts you on your wrist.
Forerunner 35 features the Move IQ ® feature, which captures different activities — such as walking, running and more — to view on Garmin Connect. No need to switch out your watch or start a new activity — the watch automatically recognizes when your movement changes so you can go from a walk to a run in no time.
Some running watches simply read your heart rate from a separate monitor that you wear around your chest. The Garmin Forerunner 35's heart rate monitor is wrist-based. That means that you only need to think about one piece of equipment whether you're going to the gym or getting ready for work.
The Garmin Forerunner 35 is a great watch for runners who are new to fitness tracking. It tracks running, walking (steps), cycling, and also you can use indoors and outdoors. It has a built-in GPS and heart rate monitor so that users can see a map of where they went, track distances, and see their current heart rate and range.
