Marathon Training – Garmin FR225 Wristband

Marathon Training – Garmin FR225 Wristband


GARMIN2Garmin released the FR225 recently, which adds optical heart rate sensing to Garmin’s list of wristband capabilities.  This product includes all the features you need to train for that marathon in October (Chicago, MCM, Medtronic,  etc).  Of course, it includes a graphical interface and maintains all the relevant data points, such as Geo-position, distance, steps, calories, acceleration, pace, etc.  Additionally, you can plan your custom workouts and download training plans from Garmin Connect.  At 1.9 oz, it will likely go unnoticed during any physical activity.  However, if you go couch potato, it will also remind you to get to work.  Fitbits and Jawbones are nice, but, in my opinion, this product stands out as professional grade.  So, strap one on before you head out to train for that next 26.2
