Garmin Forerunner 910XT heart rate monitor

With lots of added features including GPS, an accelerometer and training stress score, this is still the triathlete's HRM of choice

When we first got our mitts on the 910XT back in October 2011, it scored a mighty 95%. So, has it rested on its laurels or is it still the go-to multisport monitor? Its most obvious downside, compared to more traditional watch-like monitors, is its slightly boxy and bulky appearance.

This isn’t great if you’ve got small wrists – you can’t wear it as a day-to-day watch – but it does allow you to view its four customizable data fields, which are brilliantly clear. Syncing is always perfect with the super comfortable chest strap and, in this case, a Power2Max power meter.

As for post-2011 updates, for power users, a recent firmware update has given it NP and TSS, which makes it a very powerful bit of kit, while the barometric altimeter ensures accurate ascent data.

Its multisport function is intuitive: the accelerometer is brilliant in the pool and Garmin Connect, with the new tiny ANT+ dongle, makes connectivity a breeze. Budget dependent, it’s still the go-to HRM for triathletes.
