Thanks to companies such as Garmin, technologies like GPS have now become commonplace and affordable. Garmin has always been a leader in technology, guiding us into this brave new world. Although Garmin started by making GPS navigation units for vehicles, they made the jump into fitness accessories and have quickly become an industry leader. Garmin GPS and heart rate monitor units use the latest technology to help you maximize your cycling, swimming, and running workouts. Garmin designs, manufactures, markets and sells each of their products themselves. Garmin makes bike computers, heart rate monitors, and foot pods — fitness devices which help make every part of your workout more efficient.
