Garmin Forerunner 310XT

garmin forerunner 310xt gps watchThe Garmin Forerunner 310XT is the only fully waterproof GPS watch on the market today, making it the perfect choice for triathletes, ironmen or women and even long distance swimmers who want to improve their performance.

The Forerunner 310XT can be bought with or without a heart rate monitor depending on your budget, although we would highly recommend paying the extra as it is well worth it for the additional performance improvement.  Listed below are the best prices for the watch.

Garmin Forerunner 310XT Details

When we carried out our review of the Garmin Forerunner 310XT we were seriously impressed and in our view this watch is the best triathlon gps watch on the market today despite recent new offerings from Timex amongst others.

The Forerunner 310XT is waterproof to a depth of 50 metres which means it doesn't need to be removed during the swim although you should note that both the GPS location and heart rate function don't work in the water. This however is common to all GPS watches and is the holy grail of development currently. The watch does however allow for easy transition from the swim leg to the bike leg, with the optional quick release and Forerunner 310XT bike mount making this as easy as possible.

Forerunner 310XT Technology

On the bike, the Garmin 310XT really comes into its own with the ANT+ wireless technology allowing the watch to be pared with both a Garmin speed sensor and a Garmin cadence sensor. It will also wirelessly interact with third party power meters for those who want the absolute maximum information from their GPS Watch.

In common with most of the Garmin Forerunner series, the 310XT can display speed, pace, distance and heart rate and each of these setting can be tagged with an audible alarm to help you stay within the optimal zone for your run/swim/cycle.

Garmin Forerunner 310XT for sailors

While the major focus of the 310XT is on multi sport disciplines, the watch is also ideal for sailing as it's waterproof properties protect it from the spray of the sea while it feeds back constant readings on performance. This makes it deal for both dinghy sailing and board sailing.
