Run, Sprint, Swim, Bike, Tri

Your routine is anything but routine. Forerunner 735XT lets you change things up with ease thanks to built-in activity profiles for running (indoor/outdoor), cycling (indoor/outdoor), swimming (pool/open water), cross-country skiing, paddle sports, trail running, hiking and strength training.

For brick workouts and du/triathlon races, the auto multisport feature lets you switch sports with just one button press. 735XT is compatible with advanced workouts for running, cycling — and even pool swimming. Create your own custom workouts and download for free from Garmin Connect. Then review your past efforts on the app or share them with family and friends for added motivation.

 

Wrist-based Heart Rate Monitors Your Ticker

Forerunner 735XT has built-in Elevate™ heart rate technology to measure heart rate at the wrist¹. That means you can run freer when it’s time to toe the line. No need to wear a chest strap to see your heart rate zone and beats per minute in real time, displayed on a colorful gauge.

 

Train Your Heart Out

Wrist-based heart rate may suit your needs to a “T” on race day, but when it comes to training and recovery, you might want more dialed-in data. With Forerunner 735XT, you have options. Here are some of the advanced metrics you’ll gain with the addition of a heart rate strap:

  • Running dynamics² such as ground contact time balance, stride length, vertical ratio and more
  • VO2 max estimate, lactate threshold, race predictor and recovery advisor
  • Underwater heart rate for swimming5

 

Raise the Bar for Every Ride and Run

Forerunner 735XT is the first running watch that's compatible with Strava Live Segments. Your starred Strava running and cycling segments automatically sync with the 735XT for live feedback during your activity. Also get alerts for segment starts and finishes, view leaderboard rankings, and see how your current effort compares to your PR. Make every effort a personal challenge with Strava Live Segments.

 

Connect and Customize

Smart notifications4, automatic uploads4 to Garmin Connect and live tracking make 735XT the ultimate smartwatch for athletes. Keep your phone tucked away when you’re on a long ride or run, and get all your notifications at the wrist so you can decide to respond or keep moving. Also, with Garmin Connect™ Mobile’s ability to share your runs and workouts, cheerleading doesn’t just take place at the sidelines anymore. Your friends and family can view and comment, no matter how far away they are. You can even customize your device with free watch faces, apps and data fields from Connect IQ to really make 735XT your watch.

 

LiveTrack

LiveTrack lets family and friends track your location in real-time while you’re riding, and now it’s even easier to use. When you enable auto-start, you can spend more time focusing on the ride and less on the technology. LiveTrack will automatically detect when you start riding, which means there’s no need to even reach for your phone anymore. Auto-start is also compatible with the new Strava Beacon, which lets Strava Summit subscribers take advantage of the same great feature. It’s never been easier for you and your loved ones to have peace of mind while you ride.
