Garmin vs. Polar vs. Lab Tests

  1. The most comprehensive study came from Bryan Smith and his colleagues at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
  2. They estimated VO2 max for 23 women and 26 men using the Garmin 230, Garmin 235, and Polar V800, then compared those results to gold-standard lab testing.
  3. Typical VO2 max values in healthy college students tends to be in the 40s or 50s (in units of milliliters of oxygen per kilograms of body mass per minute).
  4. Garmin measurements seem to consistently overestimate VO2 max, to a greater degree in men than women, and to a greater degree with the wrist sensor than the chest strap.
