Reply To: watch recommendation?

Thank you Jennifer to jump starting the conversations on the forum!  This is where all questions should be directed moving forward so we can all learn.  If you have the question, others do too!
As for a sports watch and HR monitor, I recommend a Garmin.  There are several triathlon specific (920, 935, Fenix, etc) that are waterproof.  However depending on your price point, I recommend researching all of your options here on the most comprehensive website out there for triathlon.  In addition, depending on the watch you chose, DC Rainmaker does a nice job of walking you through taking the watch out of the box to getting it up and running.  It’s the best resource to get you started with the necessary technology.
Good luck with your research!
