Garmin Forerunner 30 is a simple GPS and health tracker that could help you train better
Looking for a watch + GPS tracker + fitness level indicator + training tool in one device? The Garmin Forerunner may be the right one for you.
Measure your progress with all-day activity tracking
Runners using the Forerunner 30 will get a better idea of their fitness level with the addition of VO2 max, a measurable indication of aerobic performance or fitness level, while training tools like Auto Pause, Auto Lap and pace/speed selection help provide athletes with an essential running experience. Garmin Move IQ technology will also detect and automatically categorize activities including running, walking, cycling and more.
Whether out for a jog or training for a 10K, the Forerunner 30 tracks how far, how fast and where athletes are running without the need to carry a phone. In between runs, it doubles as an all-day activity tracker, keeping count of steps, calories and intensity minutes so users can record progress and activities even when they’re not running.
The Forerunner 30 features up to eight hours of battery life in activity mode and up to five days in smartwatch mode.
Stay connected without taking out your phone
Vibration alerts for incoming calls, voicemails and text messages help Forerunner 30 users stay connected without having to dig a phone out of their purse, pocket or bag. Throughout the day, the Forerunner 30 automatically uploads to Garmin Connect where users can share their workouts with friends and family in real time with Live Track, join fitness challenges, analyze training progress, set and track goals and much more.
Redesign of navigation buttons for ease of use
Improved from its predecessor, the Forerunner 35, navigating through the new Forerunner 30 is now more intuitive with the redesign of the navigation buttons. Users can select the corresponding up or down button as they scroll through the menu while still in a workout.
Pricing and availability
It is available in turquoise, amethyst and slate grey and will be available from 21 October from Garmin’s official online store on Lazada for a suggested retail price of SGD 229.
