Garmin Forerunner® 310XT Sports Watch

Finally, a GPS-enabled training device that isn't afraid of the water. The rugged Forerunner 310XT is the triathlete's indispensable training tool — a GPS-enabled trainer that is water-resistant to 164 ft (50 m), tracks data in multiple sport modes and sends it wirelessly to your computer. This multisport device has up to 20 hours of battery life, tracks distance, pace and heart rate¹ on land, and goes from wrist to bike in seconds. Heart Rate Monitor Get a quality workout with our heart rate monitor. When worn around your chest during an activity, it wirelessly transmits your heart rate to your compatible device for instant feedback on how hard you’re working.  The front part of the strap contains the heart rate module and is made of flexible plastic. The part of the strap that goes around your back is made of a soft fabric and is adjustable to your size. Use and care of the heart rate monitor is a snap. Once it's paired with your compatible device the first time, it will automatically recognize it each time. The fabric of the strap can be removed and hand-washed as often as needed. Track Your Swim The Forerunner 310XT times your swim in the pool or the lake. And while the GPS signal does not track distance while swimming like it does on land, thanks to a recent software update, it now accurately estimates open water swim distance and average speed. Simply enable the Swim mode and press start as you begin your swim. When finished, press the lap button and the 310XT automatically processes a combination of the time and GPS data to compute an estimate of distance covered and average speed while swimming. Transition Effortlessly When you're ready to jump out of the water and onto the bike, Forerunner 310XT moves easily from wrist to bike with the optional quick release and bike mounts, making the transition between sports effortless. Forerunner 310XT categorizes multisport activities in one workout and also can log transition time in the process, so you can analyze your performance from start to finish. Collect Workout Data Forerunner 310XT tracks your position precisely with GPS satellite data and records distance, pace, heart rate¹, power data (from ANT+™-enabled third-party power meters) and more. High-sensitivity GPS and HotFix® satellite prediction mean Forerunner acquires satellites quickly and tracks your movement even near tall buildings or under tree cover. And using innovative ANT+ wireless technology, Forerunner 310XT connects seamlessly to an optional heart rate monitor, foot pod and cadence sensor. When paired with the optional wireless heart rate monitor, Forerunner 310XT continuously tracks beats per minute and uses heart rate data in advanced calorie computation. Train in a certain heart rate zone to improve fitness and monitor your level of exertion. NOTE: Heart rate data is not recorded for swim activities. Monitor Your Health You also can track weight, body fat, body water and six other measurements when using the Forerunner 310XT with the Tanita BC-1000 body composition scale. The readings are stored on Forerunner 310XT, then automatically sent to Garmin Connect™ when in range of your computer. Run, Sync, Store and Share Once you’ve logged the miles, innovative ANT+ wireless technology automatically transfers data to your computer when Forerunner is in range. No cables, no hookups. The data’s just there, ready for you to analyze, categorize and share through our online community, Garmin Connect™. ¹Included with some models; available separately with others. Only soft strap heart rate monitor accessory is waterproof (hard strap monitor cannot be used in water). Although soft strap monitor may be worn in water, it will not record, store or transmit heart rate data to the watch while in water.

Great Product to Track Fitness Every Day

Pros: versatility small size durability reasonable pr
Cons: like the 305 battery cannot be easily changed.
Model Number: Forerunner 310XT
" I bought a Forerunner 305 four or five years ago. I used it almost every day for biking, hiking and at the gym to ensure that I maintained a consistent level of exertion across activities and to keep a record of cycling and hiking routes. I became dependent on it, but recently the battery didn't last longer than an hour. I ordered a battery online but it didn't work. So I bought a 310XT. It is an excellent replacement for the 305 and has several useful improvements; longer battery life (up to 20hrs), water resistance, faster satellite pick up, wireless connectivity, lower profile. HR graph. I hope I will get years of daily use from it. I'm not sure yet whether I prefer the soft strap HR monitor over the hard strap. "

Changed my running...and my life

Pros: too many too list. clear easy to use stylish.
Cons: a little big (but it holds so much)
" I heard about this little guy on one of my blogs and it is the best purchase I have ever made. It allows me to see my pace, distance, time and calories (thats what I prefer to see on my screen but there are about a thousand options). It is easy to use, vibrates when I hit a mile, allows me to set custom runs. 5K? No problem. Want to run intervals? No problem, you can put all that into your garmin. I get home and it loads onto my computer so I can see my pace, heartrate, where I went on a map etc. It is awesome. If you're looking for something to inspire you to get out there and run more, this is it. I am buying a second one for my husband right now. "
