Description

Building on the Forerunner 220, the 230 packs more training features into a compact package. Adding Bluetooth Smart compatibility, the 230 handles your everyday schedule in addition to your training plan: texts, phone calls, e-mails notifications and music controls make it a veritable smart watch. The 44% larger color screen displays up to 4 fields for V02 max estimation, heart rate zones, pace, distance and more. When paired with a Garmin or ANT+ heartrate strap (not included), it estimates recommended recovery times based on HR information – an essential component of training and racing. Haptic feedback notifies you when you need to pick up the pace or bring it down to match your training plan. Support for cycling sensors keeps the information flowing when on 2 wheels. For rapid GPS locating, the 230 automatically preloads satellite information based on the IP address of any computer you plug into, so you're never left anxiously waiting for a signal at the start line.
