Garmin - Forerunner 735XT Heart Rate Monitor Watch - HRM-Run Bundle

Category: GPS Systems


I don’t write reviews but disappointed in Garmin. Have really enjoyed this watch for just over 2.5 years. Recently its been resetting and not keeping the time correctly. Have been a strong believer in Garmin but have to question the support. For the cost of the watch it should last longer, Garmin wants more $$ now to replace and does not offer a discount towards an upgraded version. Very nice watch but support not impressed with unfortunately. Garmin should stand behind their products


I am on my 3rd Garmin from REI. First one died within @ 9 months. Second one died within three months. REI policies for returns keep changing - luckily I am always within the window. I keep my Garmin charged and do updates- not sure why I am having meltdowns! I do love thedevice and Connect App/ and enjoy syncing it with Strava when I do solo rural bike rides to share with my husband!


This watch is perfectly functional and does everything I would want in a Tri-training watch. However, I was also looking for something that I could wear as a daily driver in an office type setting. I only purchased the black rubber band, but did not feel that the combo was something that I could "dress up" enough to be a daily. I am tall and skinny, but it still has a smaller face than I like. Further, the plastic casing gave me pause to have it on at all times.

How many heart zones can be set on this watch?

This watch has five heart zones that can be adjusted or customized.

Confirm the 735XT syncs w/the Garmin bike cadence device, and operates in open water. Finally is the 'red' HRM strap any different in functionality than the "Tri-bundle" straps? Confirm that the watch cannot monitor course and locations like the 920XT.

The Forerunner 735XT Heart Rate Monitor Watch is compatible with both speed and cadence sensors for cycling. The watch can be used for swimming both in the pool and in open water. The HRM-Run strap will only calculate running data (cadence, stride length, ground contact time, etc). The HRM-Tri calculates all of the running data and stores heart rate data when underwater, then forwards it to your wearable at the end of your swim. Both the 735 and the 920 will be able to monitor courses and locations.
