Forerunner 920xt Review – Forerunner 920xt Heart Rate Monitor Review

The heart rate monitor Garmin Forerunner 920x t  is a heart rate monitor with integrated GPS receiver and extensive running, cycling and swimming functions. This multisport watch is perfect for triathletes, among other things. It has a variety of different functions. With the Garmin Forerunner 920xt, you can accurately record and analyze every stroke, pedal step and step from the start to the finish line. The large, high-resolution color display with configurable data pages ensures that you can see your performance data, even in direct sunlight. The battery life is extremely long at 40 hours.

The Garmin Forerunner 920XT is not only an excellent heart rate monitor with extraordinary features but also an Activity Tracker with smartwatch functions. Thus, the multisport is not only on the training track but also in everyday life a very pleasant companion. The heart rate chest strap HRM-Run is of course included. Together with him, you can learn about their running potential and state of recovery. The running clock can calculate your possible competition times based on your previous training data.

The heart rate monitor Garmin Forerunner 920XT offers as its predecessors, the 910XT very specific swimming capabilities such as speed, distance, strokes, and SWOLF value. The recreational timer helps with pauses. Distance alerts help you to determine when you have reached the set distance. The time alarm tells you whether you are training at your desired time. Also, there are alarms for the number of trains and the calorie consumption.

Garmin Express makes setting the clock a breeze. With Bluetooth is syncing. It can also be up to 3 WLAN’s set up with it. The connection with the smartphone is easily made via Garmin app. The fitness watch has a VO2 max for running and cycling. Estimation and a race forecast for competition times based on training data. Convenient is also the heart rate monitor has a relaxation guide in the functions. The purchase of an activity tracker makes this heart rate monitor superfluous. Since they take the part of steps and calories, etc. All data can be analyzed very clearly in the Garmin Connect.

A small part of the features of a Smartwatch takes over the pulse watch also. So you can read news with her, see who is calling and other little things. First and foremost though, the Garmin Forerunner 920xt is still a heart rate monitor with an activity tracker.

The advantages of the pulse watch Garmin Forerunner 920XT

The disadvantages

  • no heart rate recording in the water

My conclusion

For triathletes or ambitious athletes who are looking for a very exclusive, optically beautiful pulse watch, with many features, the Garmin Forerunner 920XT has certainly been developed. These athletes can thus fully exploit a clock. Of course, the price of almost 400 euros is not without. But you also get a very high-quality heart rate monitor.

This sports watch is a bit flatter compared to Garmin’s predecessor, the Forerunner 910XT, and at least, I think, has become even more beautiful. However, the small disadvantage that the heart rate monitor sometimes does not precisely indicate the exact running speed has not been eliminated. But like Polar with the heart rate monitor V 800, Garmin has now also developed an excellent heart rate monitor which plays in the Champions League. So I think who wants to use many features to refine his training sophisticated, and has enough cash, should treat yourself to the exclusive multifunction fitness watch Garmin 920xt. For me, it is in my heart rate monitor test with activity tracker one of the best sports watches. The Polar V800 only beats it.
