Endurance runners and Ironman triathletes rejoice! Garmin’s ultimate multisport smartwatch is now available in Singapore.
Ironman Triathlon is the ultimate endurance sport, a grueling single day event where you swim in open water for 3.86km, cycle 180.25km and then run a full 42.2km marathon. And while Ironman World Championship professional competitors can do all that within 9:20:00 for women and 8:30:00 hours for men, the absolute cut-off time limit for less professional competitors is 17-hours.
There are very few GPS-enabled multisport watches that can track your activities for the full 17 hours, but Garmin’s Forerunner 935 trumps that with a battery life of up to 21 hours in GPS mode, up to 44 hours if you have it in UltraTrac mode which extends battery life by recording GPS and sensor data less frequently. Created for triathlon and running training and tracking, the Forerunner 935 is a sleek watch that’s just 49 grams in weight, but contains powerful performance monitoring features to help triathletes and runners lift up their game.
Paired with Garmin’s new Running Dynamics Pod the Forerunner 935 will be able track essential running dynamics like cadence, vertical oscillation, vertical ratio, ground contact time and balance, and it is also compatible with Garmin’s range of heart rate monitors and bicycle sensors. As a multisport watch it’ll also track a range of activities like hiking, trail running, kayaking and even golf, as well as providing 24/7 activity tracking and heart rate monitoring,
Apart from syncing with your smartphone to provide alerts, there’s a new TrainingPeaks app that users can download to access free workouts and measure their efforts against their goals. Other available apps includes Uber ETA and AccuWeaterh MinuteCast.
The Garmin Forerunner 935 is now available in Black/Grey and Force Yellow from S$749 while the Running Dynamics Pod retails for S$119. A special bundle deal worth S$799 will be available at the PC Show (booth 8046) and the Consumer Electronics Show (booth 305) from 1st to 4th June 2017.
