First off - yes, I do have one of these even they they aren't for sale online yet. Garmin had a booth at the expo for the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll marathon and I as able to pick one up. So yes, I do have one, and I have run with it.

It is a great running watch. The GPS seems fairly accurate, over reporting a bit, but less so than what I was getting when using an app on my phone. The watch report 26.77 total miles for the marathon. The HR function seem very accurate comparable to my previous polar chest strap setup. I like having a log and graph to look at afterwards for the HR metrics, something I never had before.

Wearing it for the first time, the watch felt a little heavy, but after wearing it for a full day I no longer noticed it.
The post-run analysis with the Garmin tools is great.

I did misconfigure the watch for my marathon, and that got annoying. I had experimented with pace alarms. This caused the watch to beep at me a lot over the last 6 miles of the race when pace dropped. Oh well - I won't be using that unless I am specifically pace training.

The only complains I have are around the Garmin Connect mobile app. There are a few things that are broken
- Live tracking to Facebook is currently broken, they have acknowledged this in their online forums.
- Yet another exercise app that tries to build their own social network - this is a mistake.
- No calendar view in the mobile app - this requires use a computer/Web browser to set up your workout calendar and send it down to the watch

In the end - I'm really happy to be free of the HRM chest strap and to no longer be tied to running with my phone for GPS tracking.

I have been using Garmin Sports watches for 7 years. When I first read the feature listing for the 225, I didn’t hesitate to order (in mid-May). I made this upgrade because of this watch’s strapless heart rate functionality. I am so ready to ditch the strap.

Upon receiving the watch on June 17, I eagerly dove in and explored the numerous options and settings available. This watch is awesome. Garmin did a great job of combining functionality, display options and ease of moving around within the settings (once you become familiar with that process). If I were advising Garmin’s design department, I would be hard pressed to think of anything additional to include with the 225. That completes my “praise” section.

The watch is great and the end result of working through the learning curve is well worth the effort. But … in my opinion, Garmin did a poor job with their documentation for new users. Ignore the very brief users manual that comes with watch and go straight to the URL listed to print out a “real” user’s manual. Even with that you may become frustrated (but don’t give up), in trying to master the basics regarding use of the 4 operating buttons on the watch. Here’s what is not in print but is essential to setting anything up on the watch (for reference, upper left button is #1 – then move clockwise to identify buttons 2,3 and 4):

While the manual frequently lists change commands starting with the “menu” command, there is no guidance as to how you get to “menu”. There are 2 methods to get there. First try pressing 3 until you get back to the home screen which lists “menu” at the bottom of that screen. If that doesn’t work, it means your watch is in the locked mode and you must first push button 2 to unlock it.

Having lost my Forerunner 220 w/ HR monitor (can you really lose a GPS enabled device?) I was in the market for a new heart rate monitor. Having always disliked HRM straps I always viewed them as a necessary evil for accuracy, but i loved my 220. So when a brand like Garmin introduced the 225 with light measuring technology and no strap I was skeptical about accuracy and thrilled about the absence of the strap. Given REI's awesome return policy I thought I would try it and if I didn't like it I would go back to the 220. I have been using HRM's for about 20 years and am very familiar with my HR exertion zones and what the numbers are so I was pretty sure I would know if the accuracy wasn't great, but I couldn't tell on the first day out. I was too concerned with the 225's placement on my wrist, wondered if I was getting the correct reading, thought I was working too hard, etc. Fortunately I didn't lose the chest strap and transmitter from my 220 so I set out to compare the wrist reading to the accuracy from that of a chest strap. The 225 also can connect to a strapped transmitter which was a pleasant surprise, but remember I wanted to do away with the strap. So with watch disconnected from strap I headed to the gym's treadmill to do some calibration comparisons. With the 225 on my wrist with the light monitoring activated and the strap on my chest being read by the treadmill I began a very varied hour long run. I warmed up, increased the incline, did some HIIT, steady running and fast accelerations to see how well the 225 readings compared to the readings from the strap and treadmill. I'm very OCD about accuracy and my cardiovascular health so when I found that frequent regular comparisons of 225 HR to strapped HR showed very similar numbers I was thrilled. No more strap for running!Read more ›
