Garmin FR70 Review


The Garmin FR70 is the ideal watch for a runner who wants a heart rate monitor that is easy to use with a way to track their improvement. The Garmin Connect feature is impressive and makes this exercise watch an extremely versatile fitness companion...

With the Garmin FR70, you can transfer data wirelessly to your phone or computer after each workout to keep track of your progress over time.

Without a target zone alarm, it's harder to focus on your workout when you're checking your watch manually.

Since all of the tracking features, like calories burned, duration and wireless upload, work together to make your workouts more effective, the Garmin FR70 is an excellent choice for a heart rate monitor.
