A smaller form factor and comfortable band make 735XT the ideal watch to get you from workout through workday.

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

Prove It

With the integration of the Strava Live Suffer Score, you can get street cred for your sweat. Strava Suffer Score analyzes your heart rate during a workout and ranks your total activity effort. With the purchase of a 735XT you get a 60-day free trial to Strava Premium, so you can see your suffer score and use it to push yourself harder than ever. Your suffering has value, so use it.


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.
