    Good for a heart rate tracker. Wanted more features so I traded it back in for a Fitbit Iconic.

    This is a great product for people who are very active and want to keep track of their activity. It is very durable. The battery can last a long while, and it is also very fashionable with all green/teal colors.

    Great replacement... Nothing new to learn. Very similar to the 230 it replaced. Works well.


  • Better than an Apple Watch for runners

    For running purposes, this is better than an Apple Watch. It can occasionally take longer than it should to connect to GPS, but when it does the GPS. Tracking is super accurate. I’ve found the heart rate monitor to be very accurate as well. The battery life is not as great as advertised, but it can easily go about 5 days on a full charge, including several runs, if the GPS is toggled off when not using it. When it does need to be charged, it thankfully charges quickly.


  • Excellent Watch for Runners

    If you are an avid runner and want a watch that can help you track your miles and pace, the Garmin Forerunner 235 might be just what you need. The Forerunner 235 serves its purpose perfectly. It accurately tracks the time, distance, and pace of your run or bike ride. This watch is also nice if you want to be accountable for increasing your daily activity. It records your steps, heart rate, and personal records. The watch also has a mode that will buzz when you’ve been inactive for over an hour or two. One thing to be aware of with the Forerunner 235 is that the GPS sometimes takes a while before it connects. An easy way to avoid this issue is to press the activity button with ample time before you begin your run or bike ride. The Forerunner 235 has a comfortable band that can adjust to any wrist size. The band has many holes throughout that not only help the watch to fit just right, but also make it breathable during a sweaty workout. This watch also holds a charge a long time and charges quickly. When the Bluetooth isn’t turned on, the Forerunner 235 can go about a week without being charged. Once plugged in, it is fully charged in under an hour. When the Bluetooth is on, the Forerunner can go about two days before it needs to be charged, since Bluetooth allows the watch to receive notifications from your phone. This watch is reliable, durable, and easy to use. Overall, the Garmin Forerunner 235 is a 5-star product recommended for any runner or anyone who wants to track their physical activity.

    I love the watch. I originally had a Fitbit Versa which was okay, but the Garmin is much richer in functionality, and easier to read. Heart rate monitor works well, and the GPS loads very fast.

    I love how it tracks and monitors heart rate and sleep. I had a Fitbit for 2 years and I definitely like the quality of the Garmin better!
