Garmin Forerunner 225 review: The running watch that gets almost everything right

 

Over the past year, an influx of dedicated fitness gadgets have included both GPS and heart-rate sensors. The Microsoft Band and Fitbit Surge may come to mind.

The Garmin Forerunner 225 has an always-on display, accurate GPS for tracking runs, a wrist-based heart-rate monitor, and can track steps and calories. It's water-resistant and can be worn in the shower and pool

Heart-rate tracking is limited to workouts, there's no automatic syncing, sleep data lacks detailed information, and Garmin's mobile app is dated

Runners interested in tracking both heart-rate and all-day activities can't go wrong with the Forerunner 225.

Highly functional activity watch.

 

oal changes and you wouldn't go to bed 200 steps short! I don't know how the sleep counter works but it seems acurate with light and deep sleep cycles as well detecting when I wake up to attend to the kids during the night. I also used it in a hockey...
