This high-end, multi-functional sport watch is the only GPS-enabled device on the market that integrates swimming, running and cycling metrics in such a detailed manner that satisfies even the pickiest sportsmen. Specially targeting serious swimmers and triathletes, Garmin Forerunner 910XT watch provides sportsmen with highly useful data about distance, efficiency, stroke type, stroke count and pool length during swimming activities, also being able to count speed/pace, elevation and heart rate, during running or cycling.
Presented for the first time at the last year’s Ironman Triathlon World Championship in Kona, Hawai, the Forerunner 910XT represents the latest Garmin’s breakthrough that nicely combines the best of its forerunners. It easily changes modes via six pushers, being able to track multi-sport activities in one workout, as well as the transition time, which is very useful function for triathletes.
With this hi-tech gadget, swimming activities have gotten a completely new dimension. Besides already mentioned features, this timepiece also counts the wearer’s SWOLF score – a sum of the swimming time and the number of strokes (lower is better) that shows swimming efficiency. The Forerunner 910XT is designed for both, a pool and open water where it records the path one swims so that it can be examined later on a computer. With its robust body, an easy-to-use interface and the water-resistance up to 50 meters (165 feet), it is even suitable for other water sports, such as kayaking, windsurfing and paddle boarding.
The Forerunner 910XT is equally functional out of water. When on a bike, one can use this watch for recording the ascent, descent and grade. Linked to an optional speed and cadence sensor, or a powermeter, it provides all crucial information for a cyclist. Furthermore, the watch includes a built-in GPS (up to 20 hours of battery life with GPS mode on) and a heart-rate monitor that allows its wearer to track the impact of an exercise regimen on their aerobic fitness via the Training Effect function.
Paired with the heart rate monitor and the stride sensor, the Forerunner 910XT timepiece provides all important data that a serious runner could ask, such as the running time, distance, pace, elevation and heart rate. Adding the Virtual Racer™ feature, athletes can compare new results with their previous bests and compete themselves against other users. All data can be easily uploaded on garminconnect.com web site and shared with the online fitness community of more than 70 million activities around the world.
