- Charging/data clip
A built-in accelerometer captures distance and pace data when you’re running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. Once you’re done running, it doubles as an activity tracker, counting your steps and calories throughout the day. It also reminds you to move after sitting for more than an hour. Forerunner 230 is compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites to locate your position quickly and precisely whether you’re running deep in the woods or near tall buildings.
Colorful graphic interface shows your heart rate zone and beats per minute at a glance (heart rate monitor sold separately).
Concise, easy-to-understand charts, graphs, maps and more let you view your activities, track progress toward goals and wirelessly upload and share relevant data directly with the online Garmin Connect network. So, you can compete with friends or family members on weekly step or running challenges — and compare your results in real time, using the LiveTrack feature. You can also use the app’s wireless connectivity links to receive current weather conditions, forecasts and smart notifications right on your compatible Garmin device.

I use this GPS watch on training runs and hiking adventures. I love that it is customizable, so I can set it to track the metrics I want. It is surprisingly easy to set and operate. The watch is light and comfortable, and at times I hardly know I am wearing it. I love the easy-to-read screen. Happy I got it.
