At the same time, this tutorial is valid for any compatible Garmin watch (Forerunner and Fenix), and also for Garmin Edge cycling computers.

Now that we know how Garmin’s heart rate sensors work with their patented technology and have seen a list of the devices that have this, let’s focus on the different data we can get from these sensors.

Aside from having your heart rate data in real time that allows you to much better control the intensity with which you do your workouts, most Garmins now also give you the ability to monitor heart rate activity both during the day, as well as at night.You need to find a screen similar to the one above that will allow you to see this data. You are going to observe a graph with your resting heart rate data that is discovered at the time it was at its highest and lowest point. This information will be available to you for about four hours and a little over seven days (as shown in the image above).    When your resting heart rate is low it means that your physical condition is improving. For more demanding athletes, you can learn when to take a day off if your resting heart rate is 10 bpm above normal. This will tell you how much stress your body is under.Generally, athletes and people who are very serious about their training have a low heart rate that is between 40-60, for all other adults a heart rate between 60-100 is estimated. The vast majority of sports watches use your resting heart rate data along with your maximum heart rate to determine heart rate zones.
