Garmin Forerunner 225 Unboxing and Preview

The Garmin Forerunner 225 is Garmin’s latest GPS watch release. This time they’ve upped the ante and added an Optical Heart Rate sensor to measure you hear rate without a chest strap. This is a direct competitor to the TomTom Cardio that has the same features and was released a little over a year ago, check out our review on the TomTom Cardio Here.

Also check out my first run with the Garmin 225, keeping a low heart rate on purpose at 144 bpm average.

  1. Hi Dario,

    I’m considering between the FR225 and the TomTom Multisport Cardio. I have used a TomTom Runner in the past and had issues with the slow connection to GPS at the start of a run, so I’m a bit hesitant about the Cardio version, though perhaps it has improved? Having reviewed them both, which would you recommend?

    1. I’m still in the process of writing the review for the garmin 225, but here is a sneak peek. The garmin 225 is the only watch I will wear for running anything under 10 hours long. It’s not even a toss up on this one, go with the Garmin Forerunner 225
