Show Description

A new addition to the ultra-classic Garmin Forerunner line series. A step ahead of the popular 220 series, the 225 introduces an optical heartrate sensor for hyper-accurate BPM data without the need for a chest strap. Ideal for performance-oriented runners looking to up their game, the 225 features everything you need to crush your next PR: a built-in accelerometer for capturing distance and pace data without a foot pod; high-resolution and customizable training calendars; a personal record feature; and a heart rate progress analysis feature for tracking fitness over the long term. Whether you’re hitting the trail, track, or treadmill, the 225 provides huge training potential in a surprisingly affordable package.

  • Built-in accelerometer captures distance and pace data without a separate foot pod – perfect for indoor training or when your route winds through tunnels or dense forests.
  • Optical heartrate sensors measure changes in blood volume under the skin, and work best when worn snuggly, 1 to 3 finger-widths above your wrist bone.
  • Activity tracks steps throughout the day, and reminds you to get up and move after an hour of inactivity.
  • Pre-loads satellite locations via USB.
  • Single button push for screen navigation.
  • 2 screens, each with 3 fully customizable data fields, one dedicated heart rate screen, and a clock page that be turned off if desired.
  • Connects with Bluetooth Smart-enabled phones to transfer planned workouts and completed activities.
  • Interval workout creator.
  • Pace alerts (too fast, too slow) keep you on track for whatever your planned workout requires.
  • Clip-on charging attachment included.
