Optimize your pool time
I've seen a lot of tech come online to aid multi-sport athletes. Devices like bike GPS cycling computers, powermeters, GPS running watches, and heartrate monitors have become ubiquitous. But swimming hasn't been as receptive to new training aids. Put on your goggles, start your watch — what else could you do? This Garmin package includes their HRM-SWIM and HRM-TRI heartrate monitors, two innovative products that let athletes tap into heartrate training when they're in the pool or doing an open water swim.
Traditional heartrate monitors aren't suited for the water, because the information they collect can't be transmitted to your watch. The HRM-SWIM and HRM-TRI monitors both save the information recorded during your swim, then transmit it automatically to compatible Garmin sports watches once you get out of the water, so you can review your information and see just how hard you were actually working. With this data, you can refine your swim practice and track the progression of your swimming fitness.
Hit the pool
The HRM-SWIM boasts a unique design that helps it stay in place, even when you're streamlining off the wall after a flip turn. And it's built from chemical-resistant materials to resist the ravages of chlorine and other pool chemicals. And you don't have to limit the HRM-SWIM to pool use. Use it in open water swims, during training, or in sprint-distance tris that have a pool swim to start the race.
For your triathlon training and racing
HRM-TRI works like a normal heartrate monitor during the bike and run but, unlike regular HRMs, it works on the swim, while still being comfortable for long sessions on the bike. And on the run, HRM-TRI will forward vital info on your running dynamics to compatible devices too. Use HRM-TRI during your training, or strap it on for your races. It's slim and comfortable when worn under a trisuit or wetsuit, so it's the perfect choice for long training sessions or the big race itself.
