FR60 Features
Log every kilometre and every minute with the FR60, a sleek fitness watch plus workout tool that
tracks your time, heart rate and calories burned.  When bundled with the wireless foot pod, the
FR60 also tracks speed and distance, indoors or out.  Use the FR60’s training tools to get the most
out of your workout.  Then, the FR60 wirelessly sends your workout data to your computer using
ANT+ technology for later analysis.
Train Indoors or Out
Whether in the gym or on the road, the FR60 tracks your entire workout data, including time, heart
rate, calories burned, lap times and averages.  The FR60 boasts advanced training tools, such as
training alarms and Virtual Partner, which lets you race against a virtual training partner to improve
your performance.  At the heart of its success is the FR60’s wireless ANT+ technology, which allows
it to connect to other ANT+ compatible devices, such as the included heart rate monitor, optional
foot pod, or even ANT+ compatible fitness equipment.
Go for Distance
With the ANT+ wireless link, the FR60 connects to the optional wireless foot pod, which tracks your
distance and speed effortlessly, both indoors and out.  Using advanced accelerometer technology,
the foot pod collects and sends precise data about your movements, gathering distance and speed
data that is 98 percent accurate, right out of the box.
Listen to Your Heart
The FR60 also connects wirelessly to a flexible, lightweight, digital heart rate monitor, providing
instant feedback about how hard you’re working.  FR60 continuously tracks heart beats per minute
and displays your heart rate zone, so you can monitor and improve your fitness level.
Cross-Train
When paired with an optional speed/cadence sensor (GSC 10), the FR60 tracks the speed and
distance of your cycling workouts.  The wireless speed/cadence sensor (GSC 10) attaches securely
to your bike and measures your pedalling cadence and wheel speed as you ride.  You can even use
it to train indoors as the sensor attaches to your rear wheel.
Sync and Share
Once you’ve logged the miles, the FR60 automatically transfers data to your PC or Mac wirelessly,
when in range.  No cables or hook-ups required – the data’s just there, ready for you to analyse,
categorise and share through our online community, Garmin Connect (http://connect.garmin.com).
