Are you a sporty person? If you are, then monitoring devices that let you know how far you’ve run, how fast you’ve run, what’s your heart rate and how many calories you’ve burned are probably vital. If you think you’re in need of such a device, Garmin has recently outed the Forerunner 910XT multisport watch.
The watch will come with a built-in GPS sensor and will be able to detail swim metrics, such as swimming strokes and pool lengths. Other measurements such as distance, speed, pace, elevation and heart rate can also be measured for running and cycling. The watch also sports a low-profile design which is apparently meant to allow for getting in and out of wetsuits easier.
The Forerunner 910XT is waterproof up to 50m and offers about 20 hours worth of battery life. For those who are really competitive (especially against themselves), the watch will come with a feature called the “Virtual Racer”, which lets you race against yourself or others based on previously saved times. It also comes with ANT+ support for connecting to other wireless sensors.
The Garmin Forerunner 910XT is available from Garmin’s website for $400, with a release expected for Q4 2011.
