Does the Garmin Forerunner 225 have a wrist heart rate monitor?

Yes, the Forerunner 225 is the first Garmin device to include a wrist based heart rate monitor. The device uses an optical sensor (using Mio Heart Rate Technology) that shines light into your skin and then measures the amount of light returned. Because there are slight changes as blood pumps through your wrist, the sensor detects those changes and uses a sophisticated filtering process to determine your heart rate. A light seal on the back of the watch blocks out ambient light to help ensure proper heart rate detection.

Yes, a one year limited warranty.
