The successor to Garmin’s popular 920XT triathlete’s watch, the 735XT offers key new features in a smaller size suitable for daily wear. These include wrist-based heart rate monitoring to track activity throughout the day, though you will need a chest strap for heart rate monitoring during swimming. It displays smart notifications, is designed to track performance in a wide range of sports, and you can download free custom apps to use with it. For most triathletes, this is now the number one choice although, with a GPS battery life of 14 hours, it will not suit those tackling a full Ironman unless they are at the fast end of the field.
