Forerunner® 735XT

You Do It All, Now Your Watch Can Too

This GPS multisport watch is for athletes who want in-depth data as they train and compete. Thanks to a smaller form and comfortable band, the 735XT is the ideal watch to get you through your workout and your workday.

Wrist-based Heart Rate

Forerunner 735XT is our first multisport watch with Elevate™ heart rate technology to measure heart rate at the wrist. There’s no need to wear a chest strap to see your vital stats – see your heart rate zone and beats per minute, all in real-time and displayed on a colourful gauge.

Run, Sprint, Swim, Bike, Tri

Forerunner 735XT lets you change things up with ease thanks to built-in activity profiles. You also can create your own custom workouts and download for free from Garmin Connect.

Train Your Heart Out

Here are some of the advanced metrics you’ll gain with the addition of a heart rate strap:

Running dynamics¹ such as ground contact time balance, stride length, vertical ratio and more, VO2 max estimate, lactate threshold2, race predictor and recovery advisor, underwater heart rate for swimming4.

Connect and Customise

Keep your phone tucked away when you’re on a long ride or run and get all your notifications at the wrist.

You can even customise your device with free watch faces, apps and data fields from Connect IQ™, or create your own watch face from Face It™.


LiveTrack lets family and friends track your location in real-time while you’re riding, and now it’s even easier to use. It will automatically detect when you start riding, which means there’s no need to even reach for your phone anymore.

Battery Life

The rechargeable battery can lasts up to 8 days² in watch/activity tracking mode or up to 13 hours using GPS.

A Few More Extras

Just like you, Forerunner 735XT keeps going all day long. This watch becomes your partner in recovery with all-day activity tracking6 that monitors steps, calories and sleep.
