First of all, the Garmin Forerunner 920xt is available in three different versions: European, Japanese, and an American version. This is awesome. What’s more, each version has its own distinct colors and design, which doesn’t add much to your performance obviously, but we like that the company took the time to make each different.

The running features of the Garmin Forerunner 920xt offer dynamic tracking for cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time; all of which are important for athletes to improve their performance and running efficiency. Some of the extras included in this watch are a VO2 max estimator, which can tell you how much oxygen you are getting during your workout, a race predictor, and recovery advisor, so you don’t get hurt during cool downs.

The swimming features of this triathlon watch offer swimming distance, pacing, stroke identification and adjustment, stroke counts, drill logging and resting timers, which is the total time between laps. Garmin’s Forerunner 920xt offers a high waterproof rating which makes it ideal for swimming longer. You can switch between open and pool swimming for greater accuracy in your training.

The cycling features on the Garmin Forerunner 920xt watch offers the triathlete a heart rate and power meter, VO2 max estimate, and is compatible with other ANT+ power meters for pedal sensing while riding.

Some of the extras include push notifications to the watch to let you know when you’ve received text, email, phone calls and voicemail. There is a metronome feature that can help you keep pace while training and you can share your progress on the social network available through Garmin, or on other popular social networks. The Garmin Forerunner 920xt is fully compatible with your smartphone or other mobile device and gives you metrics that matter to make you excel in your sport.
