Garmin released the new Forerunner 35, a running watch available in Q3 2016 for $ 199,99. This latest addition to Garmin’s wearable line combines running watch, activity tracker and smartwatch and comes in four stylish colors: black, frost blue, limelight and white.
The Forerunner 35 features a high resolution, monochrome display with big numbers and letters and – according to Garmin – an amazing contrast. The non-touchscreen watch is operated by four side buttons. Battery life is amazing, the waterproof Forerunner 35 should last up to 9 days in smartwatch mode and up to 13 hours in training mode with GPS and heart rate activated.
Forerunner 35 – 24/7 heart rate and activity tracking
One key feature is the built-in Garmin Elevate wrist-based heart rate technology for 24/7 heart rate monitoring without a chest strap, displaying your current heart rate and your average resting heart rate for the last 7 days. The Forerunner 35 can also connect to ANT+ wireless sensors like a separate heart rate monitor.
The Forerunner 35 tracks multiple activities including running, indoor running, walking, cycling and cardio activities. Thanks to its built-in GPS, runners can track how far, how fast and where they’re running – without carrying a smartphone! The Forerunner 35 doubles as an 24/7 activity tracker counting steps, calories and intensity minutes and includes smartwatch functionality like smart notifications and music controls. Vibrations alert runners for incoming calls, emails and text messages.
