Garmin [Sponsor Announcement]

Sponsor Announcement / Uncategorized

I am beyond elated to announce my newest sponsor for 2015 is going to be Garmin! For triathletes to maximize every workout it is critical to get accurate statistics from each workout. Garmin’s Forerunner 920XT allows you to do so in swimming, biking and running. One of the features I love about the 920XT is that it even has an indoor running and biking tracking. Living in Colorado we get sub-zero very icy days in the wintertime and I believe it is safest to train indoors on these days. I have never had a watch read my treadmill workouts until the 920XT. When I have completed a workout the 920XT makes logging them extremely easy with wifi sync.  With this new feature it sends my workouts directly to Garmin Connect and Training Peaks for me. No more hassling around trying to find your ANT Stick to transfer data to your computer.

On the bike this year I will be using the Vector pedals and Edge 510 to get all the valuable information I need including: power, heart rate, speed, right and left pedal smoothness, and torque efficiency. By having all these statistics I can analyze each workout and evaluate where I am improving and what areas need to be addressed during my next training block. We all know that knowledge is power! Athletes that train with Garmin have all the critical feedback they need to improve to the next level. Smarter Athletes, Greater Potential!
