Frequently Asked Questions

It depends on what HRM chest strap you already own and the goals you want to accomplish with this watch. You don’t need a chest strap at all to use 920XT, although if you want to take advantage of the advanced running dynamics like cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time, you’ll need one. With that being said, if you have a compatible ANT+ chest strap at home, you’re set.

If you want to measure your underwater heart rate, we highly suggest going with the HRM-Tri bundle. The HRM-Tri strap wears comfortably underwater and then provides you with your underwater heart rate data once you’re out of the pool or water.

No it does not. If you’re looking for the same features of the 920XT, plus built-in heart rate monitoring, we suggest the 735XT—Garmin’s newest multisport and activity tracking watch.

Yes, and you can also create interval workouts as well.
