From the company that launched the world’s first GPS multisport devices comes a watch that’s qualified to guide the training of elite and amateur athletes alike. Introducing Forerunner 920XT — with advanced features including running dynamics, VO2 max estimate, live tracking and smart notifications.
Advanced Training Meets All-day Activity Tracking
Forerunner 920XT packs a fleet of high-end training features into a sleek watch that is wet suit-friendly and about 15 percent lighter than its predecessor, the Forerunner 910XT. It boasts a high-resolution color display; flexible, hinged bands and a watch mode, so you can wear it all day. The activity tracking feature measures your steps, sleep and calories burned all day, giving you a more complete picture of your daily activity.
Whether you’re training at the pool or out in the open water, Forerunner 920XT captures detailed swim metrics, including distance, pace, stroke count, stroke rate and SWOLF score. The drill logging feature allows you to easily log swim drills and kick sets at the pool, and the 2 types of rest timers keep you pushing off the wall on time. Use time alerts to help you hold your pace, or distance alerts to let you know when a set is over. There are even alerts for calories and stroke rate.
Crank Up Your Training
The 920XT is compatible with sensors such as speed, cadence and heart rate to provide advanced training capabilities for your cycling workouts. It can also display power metrics when paired with ANT+™ power meters, including the Vector™ line of single- and dual-sensing pedal options.
If you train with heart rate and a power meter, Forerunner 920XT can derive your VO2 max estimate for cycling to help monitor changes in your fitness. The color gauge shows how you rank compared to other athletes in your age group. Another feature that lets you see how you measure up to others is Garmin Connect segments. Once your ride’s done and uploaded to Garmin Connect, you can see where you stand on the segment leaderboard.
Perfect Your Running Form
You’ve asked for it and now it’s here — running dynamics data for a dedicated multisport watch. Based on the same technology available in our Forerunner 620 and fēnix™ 2, the 920XT helps you train for optimal running form when used with the HRM-Run™ monitor. This pairing allows the 920XT to report your cadence (total steps per minute), vertical oscillation (amount of “bounce” in your step) and ground contact time (how much time your foot spends on the ground during each step). The 920XT also has a metronome feature with vibe and audible alerts to guide your cadence training.
Advanced Heart Rate-based Features
When used with a heart rate monitor (either a standard Garmin HRM or the HRM-Run), Forerunner 920XT offers additional features that can dial in your recovery status as well as your racing potential. First is a recovery check, which is a real-time indication of your recovery state within the first several minutes of an aerobic activity. After the activity, the 920XT provides a recovery time indicating how long before you should attempt another hard effort. The 920XT can also estimate your VO2 max for running when used with a heart rate monitor and for cycling when used with a heart rate monitor and power meter. Based on that data, it can predict your running race times for several distances.
Now your brick workouts and race activities have a whole new view in Garmin Connect, our free online community where you can save, plan and share your efforts. When you complete an activity using a multisport activity profile on your device, each leg and transition time is stored in one combined file for easy review and sharing. Individual tabs let you access detailed data for each leg.
There are multiple ways to sync your data with Garmin Connect. The 920XT can transfer the data through the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app on your smartphone using Bluetooth® technology. You can also set up one or more Wi-Fi® hot spots, and the 920XT will automatically sync with Garmin Connect when in range. Or sync with your desktop through a USB connection.
Pair the 920XT with your smartphone and the Garmin Connect Mobile app for additional capabilities that can help you stay connected during your cycling and running workouts or races. The live tracking feature lets you invite followers using email or social media so they can see your stats and location on a map in real time. Smart notifications let you see email, text and other alerts on your watch when paired with your compatible Android™ or Apple® device. When the 920XT is paired with your phone and the Garmin Connect Mobile app, your completed workouts can instantly upload.

While not that different from the 910xt they did fix the one thing that made me insane when dealing with that watch... *easy synchronization of your workouts* Both the Wifi connection to your Garmin Connect account and the vastly improved bluetooth connection to same mean no more swearing at my computer wondering where my data is.
While the accuracy is still a bit iffy for indoors, the use of inertial sensors in the HRM strap as well as presumably in the device are still better than nothing. Unfortunately even though Garmin lets you edit the data in Connect, when you export it back out, it still has the original readings. This means if you use the cool new feature that lets you automatically dump your garmin data into your mapmyfitness, strava, or Training Peaks account, the original possibly faulty data will still go up there. Using a Garmin footpad HUGELY improves the indoor non-gps accuracy. My 1.5 mile treadmill test without the footpad guessed I ran 1.76 miles, but my 1.6 mile test run WITH a footpad came in at 1.63 miles.
I have not had a chance to use this outdoors yet, but everything I have read has said that by adding GLONASS satellites to GPS, the outdoors mileage accuracy is outstanding. No chance to test full drain times on the battery yet but it is rated for 20 hrs with both GPS and GLONASS, and 24 with just GPS.
Controls are pretty easy to figure out, set-up and sync with supported devices is dead simple.
Pet peeve – I have a Garmin tempe temperature sensor. The temperature during a race can be a huge factor. For reasons I do not understand, even though the Garmin Virb will read this sensor, they have chosen not to let the 920xt sync with it… come ON guys… a $450 watch should darn well talk to all of your sensors. This and as I said before about how edits only apply to the Garmin site and not any TCX files you generate from it are the reason for the point deduction.
Also the nickel and dime stuff… charging you $2 a month to do live tracking for example… letting people watch where you are in an event in real time. I get that for free with other apps after a 1 time dollar or two purchase price.
Accuracy seems much more consistent outdoors than my 910XT. No way to be absolutely certain that it is more accurate, but at least the 920 seems to call the same route the same distance on separate runs.
So far it has given me no reason to complain. While wi-fi upload connection sometimes freaks out, the uploads of my workouts to Garmin via my Bluetooth connect via my Android smartphone has not failed even once. Again... HUGE win over old system of fighting with uploads.
No spikes or drops with the HRM (was an issue for me with the 910xt), and plays nicely with my Garmin Footpod and Garmin Inertial Cycling Cadence sensor.
The behind-the-scenes auto linkage with map-my-fitness is also flawless so far.
Hope this helps.
If I didn't have this watch, I would get one again. I use it religiously. For running and cycling, coupled with Strava I spend all my free time trying to out mileage and out run my Strava friends. It is so much fun to keep a record of everything you do.
As for the swimming feature however, it's good in open water, but in the pool, it isn't accurate enough for me. For example, if I do 100 yards kick with a kickboard, it doesn't record that...? I want it recorded. I want everything recorded. I don't use it in pool swims. It's ok, but not perfect.
It has wigged out on my about 1 time out of 40 during runs or bikes. It sometimes doesn't get a GPS lock or something and skews the results.
I don't think I would do a bike or run without it. Without logging my mileage it would seem...meaningless, almost? I just like the logging and I will keep it at that. Love the watch.
I've had some minor issues syncing (solved by plugging in) which I've narrowed down to a wifi issue that may have been unrelated to the unit itself. The unit also froze when a bunch of notifications hit it at once so I've disabled that (it was annoying anyway). It also seems to freeze after a charge and requires holding of the power button to shut down.
Otherwise, it's fantastic. It is accurate and easy to read and use. It's not going to win any style awards against Apple or even some of the other Garmins out there but for a functional sport watch, it is very good.
Update a couple years on: I continued to have some problems syncing but removing it as a device in the app AND the phone's bluetooth devices and re-syncing helped. Keeping the device updated with latest software and ejecting properly when connected to mac via the cradle has also reduced freezing incidents.
I also would like to highly recommend the running HR strap. I've never been a good runner but on some advice from a friend, I have started to concentrate on my cadence - what a revelation! All of a sudden I'm running faster than I was 4 years ago when I was far more fit and trained. I am still learning about many of the metrics that the device and strap provide but just that little bit of information has been really helpful to me as a self-taught runner. It also calculates pretty well on a treadmill which I think is pretty cool.
