VO2 MAX, RECOVERY TIME & RACE PREDICTOR2 Forerunner 920XT estimates VO2 max, recovery time and predicts your race times for several distances when used with heart rate. When used with a power meter, it estimates VO2 max for cycling as well. RUNNING DYNAMICS1 When paired with the HRM-RunTM monitor, the Forerunner 920XT provides feedback on running form by measuring cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time. METRICS THAT MATTER Record speed, distance, ascent/descent, grade and more. Pair with ANT compatible sensors to measure heart rate4, speed4, cadence4 and power4. Control VIRB Elite action camera4 to record and relive your accomplishments SMART NOTIFICATIONS3 See incoming email, text messages, call alerts, calendar reminders and more from your compatible smartphone. LIVE TRACKING3 Let friends and family follow your races and training activities in real time. Multisport GPS Watch with Running Dynamics and Connected Features Running dynamics¹ include cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time Offers VO2 max estimate², race predictor and recovery advisor Features swim distance, pace, stroke type identification, stroke count, drill logging and rest timers Smart notifications³ let you see email, text and other alerts on your watch Connected features4: automatic uploads to Garmin Connect™, live tracking, social media sharing From the company that launched the world’s first GPS multisport devices comes a watch that’s qualified to guide the training of elite and amateur athletes alike. Introducing Forerunner 920XT — with advanced features including running dynamics, VO2 max estimate, live tracking and smart notifications. Advanced Training Meets All-day Activity Tracking Forerunner 920XT packs a fleet of high-end training features into a sleek watch that is wet suit-friendly and about 15 percent lighter than its predecessor, the Forerunner 910XT. It boasts a high-resolution color display; flexible, hinged bands and a watch mode, so you can wear it all day. The activity tracking feature measures your steps, sleep and calories burned all day, giving you a more complete picture of your daily activity. Dive In Whether you’re training at the pool or out in the open water, Forerunner 920XT captures detailed swim metrics, including distance, pace, stroke count, stroke rate and SWOLF score. The drill logging feature allows you to easily log swim drills and kick sets at the pool, and the 2 types of rest timers keep you pushing off the wall on time. Use time alerts to help you hold your pace, or distance alerts to let you know when a set is over. There are even alerts for calories and stroke rate. Crank Up Your Training The 920XT is compatible with sensors such as speed, cadence and heart rate to provide advanced training capabilities for your cycling workouts. It can also display power metrics when paired with ANT ™ power meters, including the Vector™ line of single- and dual-sensing pedal options. If you train with heart rate and a power meter, Forerunner 920XT can derive your VO2 max estimate for cycling to help monitor changes in your fitness. The color gauge shows how you rank compared to other athletes in your age group. Another feature that lets you see how you measure up to others is Garmin Connect segments. Once your ride’s done and uploaded to Garmin Connect, you can see where you stand on the segment leaderboard. Perfect Your Running Form You’ve asked for it and now it’s here — running dynamics data for a dedicated multisport watch. Based on the same technology available in our Forerunner 620 and fēnix™ 2, the 920XT helps you train for optimal running form when used with the HRM-Run™ monitor. This pairing allows the 920XT to report your cadence (total steps per minute), vertical oscillation (amount of “bounce” in your step) and ground contact time (how much time your foot spends on the ground during each step). The 920XT also has a metronome feature with vibe and audible alerts to guide your cadence training. Advanced Heart Rate-based Features When used with a heart rate monitor (either a standard Garmin HRM or the HRM-Run), Forerunner 920XT offers additional features that can dial in your recovery status as well as your racing potential. First is a recovery check, which is a real-time indication of your recovery state within the first several minutes of an aerobic activity. After the activity, the 920XT provides a recovery time indicating how long before you should attempt another hard effort. The 920XT can also estimate your VO2 max for running when used with a heart rate monitor and for cycling when used with a heart rate monitor and power meter. Based on that data, it can predict your running race times for several distances. Garmin Connect Now your brick workouts and race activities have a whole new view in Garmin Connect, our free online community where you can save, plan and share your efforts. When you complete an activity using a multisport activity profile on your device, each leg and transition time is stored in one combined file for easy review and sharing. Individual tabs let you access detailed data for each leg. There are multiple ways to sync your data with Garmin Connect. The 920XT can transfer the data through the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app on your smartphone using Bluetooth® technology. You can also set up one or more Wi-Fi® hot spots, and the 920XT will automatically sync with Garmin Connect when in range. Or sync with your desktop through a USB connection. Pair the 920XT with your smartphone and the Garmin Connect Mobile app for additional capabilities that can help you stay connected during your cycling and running workouts or races. The live tracking feature lets you invite followers using email or social media so they can see your stats and location on a map in real time. Smart notifications let you see email, text and other alerts on your watch when paired with your compatible Android™ or Apple® device. When the 920XT is paired with your phone and the Garmin Connect Mobile app, your completed workouts can instantly upload. ¹When used with HRM-Run™ monitor; included with some models, sold separately on others. ²When used with heart rate. ³Compatible with Bluetooth® Smart Ready phones.

Plenty of options over the 910XT. Really appreciate the addition of pool rest timer, a metronome for run cadence and stroke cadence, the ability to sync over wifi AND via bluetooth on your phone. The step tracking and goals is also a nice feature and the watch is far more wearable day-to-day than its' predecessor. It's not such a substantial upgrade over the 910XT that it merits a full purchase at this price, but if you like cutting edge gear for your hobbies, i..
I have owned many Garmins over the years. This has got to be about the most enjoyable one so far. I got it because I wanted the swim features. I was tired of counting laps manually. I was skeptical that it would actually count laps and distance but after a few times in the pool it works flawlessly. It is some kind of magic that it knows what kind of stroke you are doing, but it does. I have also used it for running and it syncs instantly with my foot pod for runnin..
