Activity Tracking All Day and Night

Forerunner 30 is your new everyday watch, thanks to its activity tracking features. That includes steps, calories, distance, sleep1 and intensity minutes, not to mention 24/7 heart rate monitoring. It also watches out for periods of inactivity and gives you vibration alerts when it’s time to move. We’re making activity tracking even smarter with our Move IQ feature, which automatically detects when you start moving and classifies your activity as a walk, run, bike or other.
