Frequently Asked Questions

They are very similar, as you'll note in one of our most recent blogs: 935 vs 735Xt vs fenix 5. Note that 935 has a more inexpensive price point and boasts a lightweight, plastic strap as opposed to the interchangeable metal/leather choices you get with Fenix 5 series.

None of the Forerunner series watches pair with Polar at this time, since polar uses analog signals that Garmin Forerunners cannot read.

That depends. Remember: you only need a chest strap for advanced running or swimming dynamics with this specific watch, since your heart-rate readings are wrist-based. If you don't care about monitoring your underwater heart rate, then yes, the Running Dynamics Pod essentially replaces your need for a chest strap. Otherwise, we recommend pairing with the HRM-TRI or HRM-SWIM, depending on your swimming needs.

Yes. You can create and download them on Garmin Connect or download Garmin Connect's pre-loaded workouts.

You can have up to 4 data field on each customizable screen (which you customize directly on the watch).
