Getting Started
Step 3: Acquire Satellite
Signals
Step 4: Pair the Heart
Rate Monitor (Optional)
When the Forerunner has acquired
satellite signals, the training page
appears with the satellite icon ( ) at
the top.
Using the Heart Rate Monitor
The heart rate monitor is on standby
and ready to send data. Wear the
heart rate monitor directly on your
skin, just below your breastplate.
It should be snug enough to stay in
place during your run.
It may take 30–60 seconds to acquire
satellite signals. Go outdoors to an
open area. For the best reception,
ensure that the face of the Forerunner
is oriented toward the sky.
note: By default, the settings
on your Forerunner update
the time and correct time zone
automatically according to satellite
information.
While you are trying to pair your
heart rate monitor with your
Forerunner for the first time, move
10 m away from other heart rate
monitors.
1. Snap one side of the strap to the
heart rate monitor module.
2. Wet both electrodes on the back
of the heart rate monitor strap
to create a strong connection
between your chest and the
transmitter.

Heart Rate Zones
Caution: Consult your
physician to specify heart rate
zones/targets that are appropriate
for your fitness level and health
condition.
Many athletes are using heart rate
zones to measure and increase their
cardiovascular strength and improve
their level of fitness. A heart rate
zone is a set range of heartbeats per
minute. The five commonly accepted
heart rate zones are numbered from
1–5 according to increasing intensity.
The Forerunner sets the heart rate
zone ranges (see the table on page
46) based on your maximum and
resting heart rates set in your user
profile (see page 33).
Forerunner 310XT Owner’s Manual
Training
You can customize your heart rate
zones in your Garmin Connect user
profile and then transfer data to your
Forerunner.
How Do Heart Rate Zones
Affect Your Fitness Goals?
Knowing your heart rate zones can
help you measure and improve
your fitness by understanding and
applying these principles:
• Your heart rate is a good measure
of exercise intensity.
• Training in certain heart rate
zones can help you improve
cardiovascular capacity and
strength.
• Knowing your heart rate
zones can prevent you from
overtraining and can decrease
your risk of injury.

Partner pace/speed before you start
the timer, those changes are saved.
If you make changes to the Virtual
Partner during the run, when the

Heart Rate Monitor Tips
If you are noticing inaccurate
or erratic heart rate data, use the
following tips.
• Make sure the heart rate monitor
is snug against your body.
• Reapply water, saliva, or
electrode gel to the electrodes.
36
• Clean the electrodes. Dirt and
sweat residue can interfere with
heart rate signals.
• Wear a cotton shirt or wet your
shirt if suitable for your activity.
Synthetic fabrics that rub or flap
against the heart rate monitor
can create static electricity that
interferes with heart rate signals.
• Move away from sources of
strong electromagnetic fields and
some 2.4 GHz wireless sensors,
which can interfere with your
heart rate monitor. Sources of
interference may include very
high voltage power lines, electric
motors, microwave ovens,
2.4 GHz cordless phones, and
wireless LAN access points.
Heart Rate Monitor Battery
The heart rate monitor contains a
user-replaceable CR2032 battery.
Forerunner 310XT Owner’s Manual
Using Accessories
Note: Contact your local waste
disposal department to properly
dispose of batteries.
To replace the battery:
1. Use a small Phillips screwdriver
to remove the four screws on the
back of the module.
2. Remove the cover and battery.
Wait 30 seconds. Insert the new
battery with the positive side
facing up.
Note: Be careful not to damage
or lose the O-ring gasket.
3. Replace the back cover and the
four screws.
Forerunner 310XT Owner’s Manual
Caring for the Heart Rate
Monitor
Note: Unsnap the module
before cleaning the strap.
To prolong the life of your heart rate
monitor, rinse the strap after every
use.
Hand wash the strap in cold water
with a mild detergent after every
five uses. Do not put the strap in a
washing machine or a dryer.
Foot Pod
Your Forerunner is compatible with
the foot pod. You can use the foot
pod to send data for your Forerunner
when training indoors, when your
GPS signal is weak, or when you
lose satellite signals. The foot pod
is on standby and ready to send data
(like the heart rate monitor). You
must pair the foot pod with your
Forerunner.
37
Using Accessories
Calibrating the Foot Pod
Calibrating your foot pod is optional
and can improve accuracy. There are
three ways to adjust the calibration:
distance, GPS, and manual.
Distance Calibration
For best results, the foot pod should
be calibrated using the inside lane of
a regulation track. A regulation track
(2 laps = 800 m) is more accurate
than a treadmill.
1. Press mode > select Settings >
Sport Settings > Foot Pod.
2. Select Yes in the Foot pod sensor
present field.
3. Select calibration.
4. Select By Distance
5. Select a distance.
6. Select continue.
7. Press start to begin recording.
8. Run or walk the distance.
9. Press stop.

present field.
3. Select calibration.
4. Select By GPS
5. Enter a distance in the Choose
Your Distance field.
6. Select Continue.
7. Press Start.
8. Run or walk. The Forerunner
informs you that you have
traveled far enough.
Manual Calibration
If your foot pod distance seems
slightly high or low each time you
run, you can manually adjust the
calibration factor.
