Garmin have just launched the HRM Tri and HRM Swim, their first heart-rate monitors designed for use underwater.
Garmin’s HRM Swim, built for the pool
The HRM Swim is the thicker blue belt, which has been purpose-built for the pool, rather than the Tri which is more accustomed to open water. Why you ask? Well the HRM is denser which will stop the band from sliding down when athletes push of the pool walls.
The products come after Garmin successfully launched the Forerunner 920XT multisport watch last autumn, which we reviewed here. The company believes that their latest products offer more comprehensive data to help triathletes achieve their goal.
Pricing is £99.99 for the HRM Tri and £79.99 for the HRM Swim from www.garmin.com.
