Train Indoors or Out
In the gym or on the road, FR70 tracks all your workout data, including time, heart rate, calories burned and more. At the heart of its success is FR70's wireless ANT+™ technology, which allows it to connect to other ANT+ compatible devices, like the included heart rate monitor, optional foot pod, or even ANT+ compatible fitness equipment.
Monitor Your Health
You also can track weight, body fat, body water and six other measurements when using the FR70 with the Tanita BC-1000 body composition scale. The readings are stored on FR70, then automatically sent to Garmin Connect™ when in range of your computer.
Listen to Your Heart
FR70 also connects wirelessly to a heart rate monitor, providing instant feedback about how hard you're working. FR70 continuously tracks heart beats per minute and displays your heart rate zone, so you can monitor and improve your fitness level.
Go for Distance
With the ANT+ seamless wireless link, FR70 connects to the optional wireless foot pod, which tracks your distance and speed effortlessly, both indoors and out. Using advanced accelerometer technology, the foot pod collects and sends precise data about your movements, gathering distance and speed data.
When paired with an optional speed/cadence sensor, FR70 tracks the speed and distance of your cycling workouts. The wireless speed/cadence sensor attaches securely to your bike and measures your pedaling cadence and wheel speed as you ride. You even can use it to train indoors because the sensor attaches to your rear wheel.
Sync and Share
Once your workout is done, FR70 automatically transfers data to your PC or Mac®, wirelessly when in range. No cables, no hookups. The data’s just there, ready for you to analyze, categorize and share through our online community, Garmin Connect.
What's in the Box:
- Heart rate monitor
- USB ANT Stick™
Top Customer Reviews
The FR70 delivers great functionality and performance in a watch that can be worn on a daily basis. The menus are very user friendly and the display is large and easy to read. The form factor of the watch is very well built and feels comfortable on the wrist. I wear this watch as my every day timepiece and have enjoyed it.
This watch has a timer, dual alarms, and a very useful interval feature among many others. The interval functionality is something I can foresee using very much and have not seen on other exercise watches that I reviewed. It allows for a user to program the amount of time or distance of active exercise along with the amount of time or distance for rest along with the quantity of intervals or sets that you will be performing in a workout. It even allows for you to mix the criteria. For example, you can program that you would like to run for a mile (using the footpad to track the distance) and then rest for 2 minutes and perform this set five times. Additionally, you can program a warmup and cool down at the beginning and end of the workout.
The one thing that prevented me from giving this watch a full five stars is the difficulty in pushing the buttons on the side and top of the watch. I have only had the watch since Christmas (9 days) so perhaps the buttons will break-in and become easier to push in the future. I guess the benefit of this is that the buttons should not get accidentally pushed.
One other item that was troublesome is that the strap has a rubber notch on the top of the loop that the end of the strap fits in.Read more ›
I use this for running (with HRM & Foot Pod), biking (with Bontrager Duotrap speed/cadence sensor) and Spinning (with HRM).
My previous "electronic training partners" have included a Garmin Forerunner 305 and an iPhone 4s on an armband. Both have advantages and disadvantages over the FR70.
I have been frustrated with the Garmin 305 due to:
- GPS lock-on delay and inaccuracy (particularly on overcast days)
- Battery life unsuitable for all-day activities
- Useless indoors
I've been frustrated with the iPhone 4s solution due to:
- Bulkiness and discomfort, particularly on long runs
- GPS accuracy better than FR305, but still poor on overcast days (overestimates distance by 10%+)
- Fear of wrecking iPhone on bike or destroying with rain or sweat on a run
- Battery life unsuitable for all-day activities
- Useless indoors
Ideally I wanted a solution for biking, running and spinning that solved all these problems.
After doing days of painstaking research, I finally decided to try the Garmin FR70. Honestly, I never imagined I would buy a non-GPS training device, but after reading the glowing reviews of the Garmin Foot Pod accuracy, I thought I'd give it a shot.
First impressions are extremely good. Setup and installation went smoothly. At first, the ANT+ stick couldn't find the watch, but I rebooted my PC after the software install and moved the ANT+ stick to a different USB port and it worked like a charm.Read more ›
First, the misconception: the buttons aren't even a little hard to push. They behave differently than a mechanical button and that can be confusing but they are not hard to push.
The issue is that they don't respond to the Push, they respond to the Release. Quick click and they work like a charm. If you push them and when nothing happens you just keep pushing harder, nothing is going to happen. Making matters more frustrating you will note that in the instructions there are some actions that require you to push, hold and release. I believe that the HRM looks at Push and Release, and Push, Hold and Release as separate events. That means if you are taking an action that requires a quick push and release and you keep holding the button down waiting for the HRM to respond, you've just communicated a push, hold and release, an event for which no action is programmed and nothing happens. Bottom line, once you understand that it is the release that triggers the behavior and not the push, and get a feel for the difference between Push and Release and Push, Hold and Release, you will be much happier.
Second, the confusion: In reviews and comparisons some state that the FR70 has a recovery heart rate mode and others state that it doesn't.
Both are true to a degree. I use the auto lap feature and after my last lap or when I've decided I've had enough all you need to do is manually mark a lap and begin your cool down pace and after your cool down period is over end your activity.Read more ›
