A true multisport watch

If you're living the multisport lifestyle, you know how important it is to get the most out of your time and your workouts. And no sports watch gives you more info to work with than Garmin's Forerunner 910XT. It's built to meet the needs of triathletes, with customizable fields and modes designed specifically to maximize the available data for immediate feedback or later analysis. And Garmin includes their Premium Heart Rate Monitor with this package, which transmits your heart rate wirelessly to your watch.

Garmin Forerunner 910XT

The 910XT covers all your multisport training needs

  • In the water — The 910XT is equally well-suited to open water and pool swims. It'll accurately record your course, distance, and time on open water swims, so you can analyze your performance when the lane lines disappear. For pool swims, the 910XT automatically records laps, taking the counting out of long sets, and provides stroke counts too — so you can monitor and improve your swim efficiency.

  • On the land — The 910XT combines advanced features from cycling computers and running watches to let you train effectively on the bike and run. The built-in barometric altimeter renders extremely accurate altitude and grade information, while the GPS receiver records your distance, time, and pace in detail. You can customize the data fields of the watch for each of your sports, and set up vibration alerts to remind you of intervals or your nutrition schedule.

When race day comes, every second counts, so you don't want to hassle with your watch. The 910XT lets you switch seamlessly between sports with one touch of a button. And with Garmin's optional quick release mount, you can easily move the 910XT from your wrist to a bike mount.   

Awesome GPS accuracy and useful training metrics

You'd expect accurate mapping with a Garmin, and the Forerunner 910XT delivers. No more estimating the distance you've run with a car odometer or mapping software. You'll know right away at the end of your workout how far you've gone, how long it took, and what your average pace was. The included heart rate monitor keeps track of your heart rate during your workout and allows you to review your HR numbers when you're done.

Staying on pace is essential in training and racing. Garmin's Virtual Partner feature sets the pace for you so can stay on target with your goals. When you're looking to push the envelope, Virtual Racer pits you against your own best efforts, or even those of your training partners. When you're doing interval workouts on the track, Auto Lap records your efforts without you having to push a button. The calorie calculator helps you keep track of the calories you've burned during your workout, so you can toe the starting line in top shape.

ANT+ compatible

If you train with a power meter on the bike, you'll be glad to know that the 910XT is compatible with ANT+ power meters. So whether you're measuring your watts with a PowerTap or a newer pedal-based power meter, you'll be able to track and record power output while you're riding, or check out the metrics for your ride later on. If you don't have a power meter, you can pair the 910XT with Garmin's speed and cadence sensors to add more data points to your ride record.

Track and share workouts

Forerunner 910XT is compatible with Garmin Connect, so you can quickly upload your workout and check out detailed maps and metrics for your workout. It's easy to do — just plug the included ANT Stick into your computer and your workout readings will transfer automatically when you're in range. Once downloaded, you can see all your recorded training activity data, including map and elevation information, and even share it with your friends using Garmin Connect. It's also a perfect way to share data with your training partners and coaches (not to mention a good way to strike fear into the hearts of your rivals).

Product Research


Forerunner 910XT GPS Multisport Watch: The Garmin Forerunner 910XT multisport watch makes it easy and seamless to transition between sports. The auto multisport feature lets you switch sport modes with just a single button press, so you don't lose precious seconds in transition. When you set up a multisport workout, you can switch between sport modes and still view your total time and distance for all sports. For example, you can switch from biking mode to running mode and view your total time and distance for biking and running throughout your workout. The 910XT store multisport workouts in history and includes total time, distance, average heart rate, and calories for sports in the workout. It also includes specific details for each sport. You can use multisport workouts manually, or you can preset multisport workouts for races and other events.

LCD: The Garmin Forerunner 910XT features a 1.3" x 0.8" monochrome LCD screen with a resolution of 160 x 100 pixels.

Profiles: The Garmin Forerunner 910XT uses information that you enter about yourself to calculate accurate run data. You can modify the following user profile information; Gender, Age, Height, Weight, and Lifetime Athlete. You can also enter your Bike's weight, odometer value, and wheel size (for up to 5 bikes).

Note: A lifetime athlete is an individual who has trained intensely for many years (with exception of minor injuries) and has a resting heart rate of 60 beats per minute or less. The lifetime athlete setting affects certain weight scale calculations.

Training History: Your Training History displays the date, time of day, distance, activity time, calories, and average and maximum pace or speed. Swim activities also display stroke and efficiency data. The history can also display heart rate, cadence, and power data if you are using the heart rate monitor (included), footpod (optional), cadence sensor (optional), or power meter (optional). When the memory is full, your oldest data is overwritten. History is not recorded while the timer is stopped or paused. The Forerunner 910XT can save up to approximately 220 hours of training history.

Water Sports: Designed for open water and pool swimming, Forerunner 910XT is water resistant to 50 m (164 ft). It offers extensive swim metrics, including swim distance, stroke identification (pool only), stroke count and pool lengths. Stroke types included Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly. It also computes your swolf score to help you gauge your swimming efficiency. The 910XT's robust design and easy operations make it suited for other water sports, including paddle boarding. Swim Terminology:

  • A Length is one trip down the pool.
  • An Interval in swimming is like a lap in running. You can break your swim into swim intervals and rest intervals.
  • A Stroke is counted every time your arm wearing the 910XT completes a full cycle.
  • Your Swolf score is the sum of the time for one length and the number of strokes for that length. For example, 30 seconds plus 15 strokes equals a swolf score of 45. Swolf is a measurement of swimming efficiency and a lower score is better.
  • Your swim Efficiency Index is the sum of the time and the number of strokes that it takes to swim 25 meters. This allows you to compare your swim efficiency to another pool or an open water workout. A lower swim efficiency index is better.
Note: The Forerunner 910XT is intended for surface swimming, only. Scuba diving with the 910XT will damage the product and void the warranty.

Running/Biking Training Tools: On land, the Forerunner 910XT accurately captures your time, distance, speed, or pace. The 910XT incorporates a barometric altimeter for highly accurate elevation data, including ascent, descent and grade. The Forerunner 910XT offers various training tools.

  • Virtual Partner + Racer: Virtual Partner is a training tool designed to help you meet your goals by encouraging you to run at the pace you set. Virtual Racer is a training tool designed to help you improve your performance. You can race against your own activity or one transferred from your computer and Garmin Connect. The Virtual Racer pushes you to beat your previous pace including hills where you might sow down and the final sprint to the finish line.
  • Auto Lap: You can use Auto Lap to automatically mark the lap at a specific distance. You can also use Auto Lap to automatically mark the lap at a specific position. This feature is helpful for comparing your performance over different parts of a run.
  • Auto Pause: You can use Auto Pause to pause the timer automatically when you stop moving or when your speed drops below a specified value. This feature is helpful if your run includes stop lights or other places where you need to slow down or stop.
  • Walk Break Alerts: Some running programs use timed walking breaks at regular intervals. For example, during a long training run, the program may instruct you to run for four minutes, then walk for 1 minute, and repeat. The watch will alert you with a beep or vibration when its time to run or walk.
Note: These training tools do not function during interval, custom, or pool workouts.

Barometric Altimeter: Forerunner 910XT will automatically calibrate the barometric altimeter if you are within 50 meters of a saved location with elevation data. Otherwise, the 910XT calibrates the barometric altimeter using GPS elevation data.

Interval & Custom Workouts: The Garmin Forerunner 910XT multisport watch offers Interval & Custom training modes.

  • Intervals: You can create interval workouts based on distance or time. Your custom interval workout is saved until you create another interval workout. Open intervals can be used for track workouts when you are running a known distance, but want to keep track of how many intervals you have completed. Interval workouts are not available in swim mode.
  • Custom: Custom workouts can include goals for each workout step and varied distances, times, and calories. You can create custom workouts using Garmin Connect and transfer them to the Forerunner 910XT. You can also create and save a custom workout directly on the 910XT. In addition, you can schedule custom workouts using Garmin Connect. You can plan workouts in advance and store them on the Forerunner 910XT. Custom workouts are not available in swim mode.

Courses: Another way to use the Forerunner 910XT for custom training is to follow a course based on a previously recorded activity. You can follow a saved course simply because it is a good route. For example, you can save a bike friendly commute to work. You can also follow a saved course, trying to match or exceed previously set performance goals. For example, if the original course was completed in 30 minutes, you will race against a Virtual Partner trying to complete the same course in under 30 minutes.  Courses are not available in swim mode.

Alerts: You can use Alerts to train toward a specific time, distance, calorie, heart rate, cadence, and power goals. Each time you reach the alert amount, the device beeps or vibrates and displays a message. Calorie Alerts are not available in Swim mode.

Heart Rate Monitor: The Forerunner 910XT includes Garmin's Heart Rate Monitor. The front part of the strap contains the heart rate module and is made of flexible plastic. The part of the strap that goes around your back is made of a soft fabric and is adjustable to your size. Once it's paired with the GPS watch the first time, it will automatically recognize it each time. When worn around your chest during an activity, the Heart Rate Monitor wirelessly transmits your heart rate to the Forerunner 910XT for instant feedback. It has 5 heart rate zones, which you can customize based on your exact zones. You can also set up heart rate alerts to notify you when you are above or below your targets. Forerunner 910XT provides heart rate-based calorie computations so you can more accurately track your calories burned. Heart Rate Zone Chart:

Zone Percentage of Maximum Heart Rate Perceived Exertion Benefits
1 50-60% Relaxed, easy pace: rhythmic breathing Beginning-level aerobic training; reduces stress
2 60-70% Comfortable pace; slightly deeper breathing, conversation possible Basic cardiovascular training; good recovery pace
3 70-80% Moderate pace; more difficult to hold conversation Improved aerobic capacity; optimal cardiovascular training
4 80-90% Fast pace, and a bit uncomfortable; breathing forceful Improved anaerobic capacity and threshold; improved speed
5 90-100% Sprinting pace, unsustainable for long period of time; labored breathing Anaerobic and muscular endurance; increased power
Note: Although the heart rate monitor may be worn in water, it will not transmit heart rate data while submerged.

Training Effect: Training Effect measures the impact of an activity on your aerobic fitness and accumulates during the activity. As the activity progresses successfully, the Training Effect value increases, telling you how the activity has improved your fitness. Training Effect is determined by your use profile information, heart rate, duration, and intensity of your activity.

Training Effect Description
1.0-1.9 Helps recovery (short activities). Improves endurance with longer activities (more than 40 minutes).
2.0-2.9 Maintains your aerobic fitness.
3.0-3.9 Improves your aerobic fitness if repeated as part of your weekly training program.
4.0-4.9 Highly improves your aerobic fitness if repeated 1-2x per week with adequate recovery.
5.0 Causes temporary overload with high improvement. Train up to this number with extreme care. Requires additional recovery days.
