Garmin's Forerunner 230 (010-N3717-40) GPS running watch guides you in a new age of heart rate zone training. Garmin employs Mio Heart Rate Technology that measures heart rate at the wrist, so no more chest straps. The Forerunner 230 has an accurate GPS receiver that keeps close tabs on the distance you have traveled when you lace up your shoes and step out the door. An integrated accelerometer sensor records distance run on an indoor track or treadmill. The Auto Lap function records distance run on whatever distance you choose. You can analyze your workout and track your training activity data, including map and elevation data with the help of the Garmin Connect app. Install the Garmin Connect app on your compatible Android or iOS smartphone and your data will be automatically uploaded on Garmin Connect.
You can customize your data fields, and download your favorite watch face, widgets, and applications for free at Connect IQ. The Forerunner 230 is supported by GPS and GLONASS for improved satellite acquisition and signal lock even when you're running under dense cover. The LiveTrack feature enables your family and friends to track your real-time activities. Your Forerunner 230 GPS watch is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts up to 16 hours in GPS mode and 2 weeks in smartwatch mode.
