Two years ago (on the 16th actually), my dad gave us the scare of our lives. He had a heart attack, very unexpectedly. He ate healthy, he was training for a half marathon...he wasn’t someone you’d expect to be in his shoes. That day changed me, and my entire family. We are so thankful he is healthy and here with us still today. I’m also thankful for Garmin being a partner in monitoring my own heart.
I wanted to share about this helpful feature on my Forerunner 645 Music watch since it also happens to be National Heart Month!❤️ There’s an option to monitor your HR even more closely with notifications. So for example, say you’re doing speed work and you want to make sure your HR isn’t too high, you can turn on a notification. Or say you’re doing an easy run, and you want to keep your HR low, you can input that number to be notified if it reaches it so you’ll know you need to slow your pace a bit more.
There is also an option to get an abnormal HR alert for daily use too!
For a tutorial on these features, check out my blog for more info (link in bio). And if you’re reading this long after originally posted, just use the search bar on my blog and type Garmin in to find the post.👍
