An ultra runner may switch to UtraTrack mode to benefit from extended battery-life while in GPS mode. Garmin Forerunner 920XT is able to detect type and count of strokes, distance and swim time.

It is a fantastic experience having ability of wearing a single watch daily, which becomes useful as tri-training tool as well. Garmin Forerunner 920XT is more of a user-friendly and intuitive smartwatch compared to 310XT. The menu is appreciably easy navigating and settings easy to maneuver.

The 920XT may be set up in order to wirelessly transmit daily activity and fitness data in total across Bluetooth onto Garmin’s application on the phone. This may alternatively be executed to Garmin Connect account.
