What is Garmin Forerunner 735 XT?
Garmin Forerunner 735 XT is a multi-sports specific watch. While earlier versions of the watch were bulkier, new Garmin Forerunner 735 XT is much relatively smarter than earlier bulky versions like Garmin 920 XT, but it still misses the elegance of smart watches. Still, new Garmin is small and one can wear it on daily basis.
The watch is more like fitness trainer and helps in keeping track of heart beat rate. Apart from this, it also helps in monitoring all the activity with provision of some basic training metrics.back to menu ↑
The watch is designed to suit the needs of athletes. It is small and easy to wear and hence accompanies an athlete through a complete triathlon. It is light in weight and doesn’t feel an extra burden during all that tough physical activity. Gadget boosts a minimalist design, which is something rare of sports based watches.
The watch contains a little portion of bezel with more metal. Watch is style deficient, but fits best the requirements of a sporty device. It also utilizes mix of control buttons around the bezel. A fitness tracking watch can never be losing. Afterall, it is matter of taking accurate measurements while being attached to the wrist. Garmin Forerunner 735XT has achieved this ideal function through, a strap that stretches to the rubberized metal producing a perfect snug.
Heart beat monitor works automatically. Hence, it stops when there is no need, thus saving the battery. But this automatic function is not smart enough to detect the surface. For instance, it remains on while being put on the surface of table. But being attached to any surface other than skin is not something to worry about. Because, it doesn’t measure anything, hence doesn’t consumer too much energy. Apart from its own monitor, watch can has an optional heart rate strap as well. Those, who need more accurate data, can rely on this.back to menu ↑
In terms of sports, Garmin Forerunner 735 XT covers three basic games, including racing, running and cycling. Motion sensors help to track indoor training while GPS Sensors help in locating outdoor training and running. GPS remains an ideal option for using inside the pool.
The heart rate monitor is built-in. It is the best assistant for training in different zones. These optical heart rate monitors are great but, still people need chest straps for more accuracy. Hence, the watch has optional straps that are quite compatible. Athletes who need more accuracy can opt for such devices.
Auto stroke detection system provides in depth swimming tracking data. In 1000m swimming pool Garmin Forerunner 735 XT counts 50m for one length. The device doesn’t have automatic stop and pause buttons. So, one need to perform these functions automatically. In swimming pool, one needs the tri-chest strap. Water simply limits the functionality of heart rate monitor, by disabling HR Tracker.
Data is more accurate for cycling. Again, during mountain biking or racing, heart beat monitor may not prove to be as much reliable.back to menu ↑
Garmin Connect App
In order to get an in depth view of the data one has to use the Garmin connect app. It doesn’t require any button for synchronization with phone and connects automatically via Bluetooth. Hence, it is quite likely for few devices to experience a difficulty in getting connected.back to menu ↑
