Heart Rate Monitor
With the Garmin Forerunner 225, you don’t need to wear heart strap anymore, the optical heart rate (HR) sensor on the Garmin Forerunner 225 does the need full. This sensor works by lighting up the LED light into the blood capillaries at your wrist, which it then reads optically using the infra-red sensor that measures the amount of light returned. Because there are slight changes as blood pumps through your wrist, the sensor detects those changes and uses a sophisticated filtering process to determine your heart rate. A light seal on the back of the watch blocks out ambient light to help ensure proper heart rate detection.
