Garmin Forerunner 225 Review

Being active and performing sports activities is great, but the experience can get even better if you wear the Garmin Forerunner 225 on your wrist. In the past, tracking your activities would have been almost impossible with respect to mapping your jogs via GPS or to measuring your heart rate over a given time frame. Things have changed in the past few years and you can now track your exercise routine with no effort at all. A watch cannot get in your way as you will practically forget that you are wearing it soon after you put it on your wrist.

 

If you are a professional or training a lot, the device might feel a bit limited when it comes to features, but if you are just passionate about being fit and need a good way to keep track of your stats, the Garmin Forerunner 225 is perfect. The heart rate monitor is extremely accurate but you will only be able to use it when you work out; and not hoping to monitor your heart rate all day long. However, if you are not working out but still want to check out your heart rate, you can receive the info on-demand, whenever you need to.

 

The GPS of the Garmin Forerunner 225 is also really accurate. It may take up to a minute to acquire the signal, especially if you are running in urban environments, but afterwards, the connection will remain active and your route will be mapped with minute detail. When you decide to activate the workout mode, you will have the possibility to check out the two screens of the device. The lap time, the calories, the lap pace or the lap distance are just a few of the 14 data stats you can choose to display. The heart rate remains on a separate screen and the classic watch face is also displayed on another screen, so everything is neatly organized.

 

The GPS will drain the battery of the Garmin Forerunner 225 the most, but even if you have it permanently, you can still expect around 10 hours of battery life; otherwise, it depends on your activities and you can charge it even once per two weeks.

 

The Garmin application is designed to synchronize data between your Garmin Forerunner 225 and your smartphone. Whether you have an iOS or an Android powered device, you will be able to pair the watch with it. The Bluetooth connection is deactivated when it is not needed, so you don not lose battery when unnecessary. Reconnecting the devices takes seconds to complete and afterwards, you can access all your data in a user-friendly format. Of course, the Garmin application still leaves room for improvement, but even so, it is still a great way to access all the relevant information collected during your workouts. Last but not least, the black and red watch design looks really good on your wrist, making it a good candidate for daily wearing, even if you do not exercise following such a schedule.

 

  • The Good :
    Convenient design, accurate GPS and heart monitor, 14 stats recorded
  • The Bad :
    The Garmin app could use some improvements
Our score:
5 / 5
