Forerunner 935 test. Was I wrong about optical HR monitors?
If you read this blog you know I do not like optical HR monitors (see: Wrist/optical HR monitors are worth +10 BMP). However, it was time to update my aging watch and the Garmin Forerunner 935 was the obvious choice. Check out DC Rainmakers full review here: Garmin Forerunner 935 In-Depth Review. It's essentially the best Garmin ever made. But I'm not here to tell you about the watch, I'm here to tell you about it's optical HR monitor.

Wrist/optical HR monitors are worth +10 BMP
I've had the displeasure of testing several wrist/optical heart rate monitors including those found on the Apple Watch and the Garmin Forerunner 235. I could go into detail and tell you how they only seem to work when you aren't doing anything physical, how they are terrible for running intervals, how they work ok some days and not at all other days, or how they magically seem to always add +10 to +20 BMP to your heart rate (+10 or +20 anything would be great if this was a video game).
