Time to talk about the differences between the FR220 and the new FR225.
The Forerunner 225 is the evolution of the 220. With a built in heart rate monitor and a new fresh HR-focused display.
When you are running long distances it can become quite lonely out there. The answer? Music! I’ve reviewed the Philips ActionFit Phyton, a light weight affordable sports earphones.
The Adidas miCoach FitSmart is a full blown sports watch. Support for running & workouts. With it’s built in heart rate monitor and paired with your phone you can get automated coaching and detailed metrics.
The Garmin Forerunner 220 is mostly a running watch but dubs as a pretty nice normal watch too. It’s light (40.7 grams) and it can connect via Bluetooth to your phone.
So Wahoo Fitness released the Tickr series with the Tickr, the Tickr Run, and the Tickr X. All of these chest strap heart rate monitors have dual functionality, in means that they support both ANT+ and Bluetooth.
I’m always wondering what will be the next feature on training options and metrics. And Stryd is now bringing power meters to running. When you think about it it makes sense. A power meter for running. Just like on the bike it’s an objective way of measuring performance.
