Garmin Forerunner 410 HR monitor for Insanity?

I would really like to use a heart rate monitor when I do the Insanity challenge, but I don't want to buy a new one if I don't have to. I have the Garmin Forerunner 410 which comes with a HR monitor, but can it be used or workouts like Insanity or will it only work for running? Thanks!


  • I use mine for all workouts except for swimming. You can absolutely use it for Insanity! It'll help save some battery if you turn off the GPS- press and hold GPS, then scroll to get to GPS, and press the top button to select off. Then go into training and get your workout on like normal. =) Just don't forget to turn it back on when you go running!
