If you’re serious about exercising and passionate about a range of activities you’ll want to check out this new model. It features a built-in heart rate monitor and advanced metrics to cover every part of your walk, run, cycle, swim and more.

It’s a GPS enabled tracker that manages to remain as slim as much simpler bands, which is good for your daily use. We’re really pleased to see this model able to instantly check your heart rate without the need for a chest strap.

The Forerunner 735 XT was designed for the demands of triathletes, so that means it’s ready to keep up with your running, cycling and swimming – to an impressive depth of 50 metres.

The 31mm screen features bright colours for instant information at a glance and it works well even in bright sunlight, which is ideal for active sorts. GPS pickup is fast and it logs data on the watch immediately as well as syncing it to Garmin’s own app.When you’re not out on the trail or under the waves, the 735 XT keep on working, measuring your steps and your daily calorie burn, while also paying attention to your sleep patterns.

It also operates as your training partner, with built in workouts for running (indoor/outdoor), cycling (indoor/outdoor), swimming (pool/open water), cross-country skiing, paddle sports, trail running, hiking and strength training. You can make sure your exercising optimally at all times with the live heart rate monitor – if you’re in the green zone you’re doing it right. It can even measure your heartbeat underwater, though you’ll need the strap for that.

There’s more, like Stravia Life extras which measure your ‘Suffer Score’ – the harder you work the higher rank you get, which is good for bragging rights if nothing else. Smartwatch features give you notifications on your wrist, which is a great way to avoid your smartphone when you’re in the zone.

And all this data, and much more besides, goes into the Garmin Connect app which helps you keep on top of your goals and gives you a chance to work harder everyday. There are tips for progress in the app and you can link up with other local athletic sorts. The software works on desktop as well as iOS and Android.

Here’s a space age extra – the 735 XT is compatible with Varia Vision. This is a second screen which you can mount to your sunglasses that provides Google Glass like data near the edge of your vision. So you can see how your workout is going without taking your eyes off the road.

The Garmin Forerunner 735 XT is the perfect companion for running, swimming, cycling and practically any other activity you can think of. With advanced and accessible features and blazingly fast heart rate monitoring you’ll want it on your team.
