The Forerunner 235 enables you to share all your run and activity data and monitor your progress at Garmin Connect. Garmin Connect is Garmin's free online community where you can plan, save, and share your activities. Download the Garmin Connect Mobile application to your compatible smartphone and all your activity data can be automatically uploaded from your Forerunner 235 to Garmin Connect.

The Forerunner 235's rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts up to 11 hours in full training mode (using GPS-tracking and full running features) and up 9 days in watch mode (including activity tracking, smart notifications, and heart rate monitoring). It can store up to 200 hours of running and activity data, so even if you can't sync right away, you won't lose any important information. Additionally, the Forerunner 235 is designed to withstand water pressures equivalent to a depth of 50 meters, so you can take it with you in the rain, snow, and sunshine.

Heart Rate Measured at the Wrist

The Forerunner 235 is equipped with Elevate heart rate technology that measures your heart rate at the wrist, enabling you to run without a chest strap. A colorful gauge on the Forerunner display indicates your heart rate zone and beats per minute in real time.

On and Off the Road Running

A built-in accelerometer enables the Forerunner 235 to capture distance and pace data when you're running on an indoor track or treadmill, no separate foot pod accessory needed. When you're not running, the Forerunner 235 works as an activity tracker, counting your steps and calories burned throughout the day. It also reminds you to move after sitting for more than an hour. The Forerunner 235 is compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites to locate your position quickly and precisely whether you're running deep in the woods or near tall buildings.

    Yes. Using the Garmin Express app, you can go to the Garmin website, set up just about any sort of training outline, then you download that outline onto your watch. I have 11 different custom workouts on my watch right now.

    question

    Does the backlight stay lit?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, it can be set that way. It defaults to staying on for 8 seconds when you push the button. You can also set it to stay on for 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute or just to stay on when the button is pushed. In addition, it can also be set to come on by turning your wrist instead of pushing the button.

    question

    Does this watch come with a built-in heart rate monitor on the wrist (no chest straps)?
    Asked by: Joynal R.
    Yes. However you need to wear it above your wrist bone and fairly snug which is a bit awkward until you get used to it.
