Wrist-based heart rate
On another upbeat note, Elevateâ¢ wrist heart rate technology lets you monitor your heart rate without wearing a chest strap. In addition to counting steps and monitoring sleep, the watch uses heart rate to provide calories burned information and quantify the intensity of your fitness activities. It also measures your heart rate variability to calculate a stress score that helps you assess what level of activity your body is ready for.

When you know how much power you're expending from minute to minute and mile to mile, you're better able to pace yourself, which can help keep you from tiring out too quickly. The best news? If you already own the right Garmin devices, adding power to your run is free. All you need is a fÆÃ¬nix 5 and one of these accessories: HRM-Runâ¢, HRM-Triâ¢ or the Running Dynamics Pod. Learn more.
