Garmin is still one of the biggest names in the GPS game, but that’s not restricted to just navigation around the confusing streets of Manhattan. There are units that can help you track your biking and running habits, for instance, and in the case of the newly announced ForeRunner 910XT multisport watch, it can track your swimming too.
This higher end GPS watch is waterproof up to 50 meters, letting you keep your tracking going even when you’re going for a dip in the pool or the lake. There are sensors that can provide detailed swim metrics, like distance, speed, pace, elevation, heart rate, strokes, pool lengths, and even your “swolf score,” which describes your swimming efficiency.
The watch can be used for other sports too, like biking, hiking, and running, but it’s clear that the waterproof-ness is lending itself to the more aquatic end of the equation. You can expect 20 hours of battery life, vibe alerts, and a “Virtual Racer” feature that lets you race against yourself. The Garmin ForeRunner 910XT is shipping now for $400.
