Get comprehensive real-time run statistics with the Garmin Forerunner 230 in purple strike. This GPS- and GLONASS-supported running watch shows you distance, time, and data on its 1.23" color display. Additionally, the 230 works with an optional heart rate monitor to deliver more advanced running metrics and features, including real-time heart rate data and your VO2 max estimate, giving you all the data you need to be a better and more efficient runner. An accelerometer is built in, so you can still capture running data when you're running indoors without the need for a separate foot pod accessory. In addition to running data, the Forerunner 230 also works as an everyday wellness and activity tracker. It counts your steps and calories burned, monitors your sleep quality, and will cue you to move when you've been sitting too long.
The Forerunner 230 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 so that all your activity data can be automatically uploaded from your Forerunner 230 to Garmin Connect.
The Forerunner 230's rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts up to 16 hours in full training mode (using GPS-tracking and full running features) and up to 5 weeks in watch mode (including activity tracking and smart notifications). 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 230 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.

On and Off the Road Running
A built-in accelerometer enables the Forerunner 230 to capture distance and pace data when you're running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. When you're not running, the Forerunner 230 works as an activity tracker, counting your steps and calories throughout the day. It also reminds you to move after sitting for more than an hour. The Forerunner 230 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.
