On and Off the Road Running

A built-in accelerometer captures distance and pace data when you're running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. Once you're done running, it doubles as an activity tracker, counting your steps and calories throughout the day. It also reminds you to move after sitting for more than an hour. Forerunner 230 is compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites to locate your position quickly and precisely whether you're running deep in the woods or near tall buildings.


Colourful graphic interface shows your heart rate zone and beats per minute* at a glance.


It's Simple. Period.

Concise, easy-to-understand charts, graphs, maps and more let you view your activities, track progress toward goals and wirelessly upload and share relevant data directly with the online Garmin Connect network. So, you can compete with friends or family members on weekly step or running challenges - and compare your results in real time, using the LiveTrack feature. You can also use the app's wireless connectivity links to receive current weather conditions, forecasts and smart notifications right on your compatible Garmin device.
