Garmin® introduces the Forerunner® 35, adds built-in Elevate™ wrist-based heart rate to an easy-to-use GPS running watch

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the Forerunner 35, its newest GPS-enabled running watch with
built-in Garmin Elevate wrist-based heart rate1 technology
that allows runners to monitor their heart rate 24/7 without a chest
strap. The easy-to-use Forerunner 35 tracks essential data like
distance, pace and personal records, and thanks to its built-in GPS,
runners can track how far, how fast and where they’re running all
without worrying about carrying a phone too. In between runs, the
stylish Forerunner 35 doubles as an all-day activity tracker1
as it counts steps, calories and intensity minutes, so users can still
record progress and activities even when they’re not running. The
Forerunner 35 also includes smartwatch functionality including smart
notifications2 and music controls2 right from the

“It’s easy to take your running to the next level thanks to the
Forerunner 35 with Elevate wrist-based heart rate – you just put it on
and go,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales.
“With a host of built-in features including wrist-based heart rate and
smart connectivity, the Forerunner 35 is the perfect tool for runners
who want to stay fit, stay connected, and share their progress.”

The Forerunner 35’s updated sleek design features a new high resolution
display with amazing contrast, perfect for indoor and outdoor viewing
alike. In addition to running, the Forerunner 35 features multiple sport
profiles including indoor running, walking, cycling and cardio
activities to help users meet their fitness goals on and off the
pavement. Stylish and lightweight, it’s comfortable for all day wear and
seamlessly transitions from a run to an everyday activity tracker and
smartwatch. Its battery life is up to nine days in watch/activity
tracking mode, and up to 13 hours in training mode.

With vibration alerts for running prompts, activity tracking milestones,
and virtual pacing progress, the Forerunner 35 helps runners stay
motivated and easily monitor their progress as they go. Vibration alerts
can also be set up for incoming calls, text, emails and calendar events
so users can easily stay connected without having to dig a phone out of
their purse, pocket or bag. Additional connected features include music
controls, automatic uploads and software updates.

Throughout the day, the Forerunner 35 automatically syncs with the
Garmin Connect™ Mobile app to save users’ stats to their free account in
the Garmin Connect online fitness community. Runners can also use Garmin
Connect to share their workouts with friends and family in real time
with Live Track2, join fitness challenges, analyze training
progress, set and track goals, share activities with other Garmin
Connect users and much more.

The Forerunner 35 is expected to be available in Q3 2016 for a suggested
retail price of $199.99, and will be available in four colors: black,
limelight, frost blue and white.
