For the first time ever, Garmin's Forerunner watch helps you train for a triathlon. The 255 watch takes care of all aspects of your training, whether you are a runner, biker, swimmer or any other activity it supports. Featuring the Elevate Optical Heart Rate Monitor, it captures your heart rate directly from your wrist, without you having to wear a chest strap. Your running session stats, such as speed and distance covered, are measured by the built-in GPS and internal accelerometers. These sensors work in concert to turn your movements into data so that all your efforts in the gym, in the pool and on the trails are recognized. You can also connect your watch to your phone through the Garmin Connect app to take advantage of a host of smartwatch features. The Garmin Connect application allows you to consult the data of your activities; receive text messages, social media notifications, emails, etc.; download training programs; keep an eye on weather conditions, and more.
