Best wearable on the market
Posted by: Nordikman from: on
I've had the surge and charge HR and they do not hold a candle to my 235. The 235 is more accurate for running, biking and even steps. The messages are easy to read and everything syncs up quickly. The big selling point for me is its water proof. I want to be able to shower, swim and do the tough mudder and keep my watch on, I can do that with the 235. The app still needs work but Garmin is working on that. This watch is definitely a keeper!!!

This is an amazing upgrade from the Fitbit Surge. I love the fact that it's water resistant meaning I can shower and swim with it and I don't have to worry about the dreaded rash that I'd get from the surge. Easy to use and with my small wrist, it fits just right!!

I love this watch don't ever want to take it off! A bit expensive but it is totally worth it. Combined the Fitbit with my garmin forerunner 10 now I only have to wear one!

I've had the forerunner 235 since Jan 2016, and has been very pleased with it. I mostly use it for cycling and cardio...user friendly, accessible function keys, easily syncs with my garmin edge when cycling. HR sensor is a few seconds delayed, but is reliable when using it for trends. Overall, satisfied with it compared to the Fitbit charge.

Great watch for running
Posted by: bsmithlfd from: on
This watch is pretty sweet.
PROS: ease of use, great for running, ability to personalize, constant HR monitor, app is light years ahead of the competition, when connected to my phone it would show all my texts and alerts, EXTREMELY Comfortable. This is hands down the most comfortable watch in the history of the world
CONS: no MP3 storage - must be connected to blu-tooth for music, bad for PT - during workouts the buttons would automatically press up against my wrist and switch the timer or turn off the timer entirely- this is no good when trying to maintain certain time requirements
This is a great watch for a tech savy person and also a runner. As far as an "all around" fitness watch I believe it to be below the competition. It feels very delicate and that it could break at any minute. I loved this watch but needed something a little more durable. If you are a runner GET THIS WATCH! If you are a crossfitter or spartan racer or whatever the TomTom might be a better route.

LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!!

Love this watch!! I have small wrist but it's not heavy. I can connect with my sisters watch and we compete daily on our steps and activities which then motivates me even more. Downloaded a hike app and it works good. Can't say enough it's so cool !!

HR sensor needs work
Posted by: markm from: on
Nice watch, does most things well, heart rate Sensor could be better as well as the sleeping function. Would be nice if the "other hr activity" option on the watch could be customizable

tons of potential but falls short
Posted by: BarneyStinson from: on
this watch has a lot of potential because of the many features it offers but doesn't quite deliver. the screen is advertised as bright but is very dim and the one i got had light bleeding at the bottom. my iphone showed i was connected to the watch but the garmin app and watch said i was not. very confusing menu system. really only usefull for runners, cant track any other activities as well

I purchased this watch for my runner son as a Christmas gift. He was thrilled to have it and wears it all the time. It looks very classy on his wrist. He says that it is the best gift he received! He recommends it for all runners....

Great GPS/HRM watch
Posted by: NYY42 from: on
Love the Forerunner 235. GPS connects quickly, and is accurate. Battery seems pretty long lasting when not in GPS mode. Love that the HRM is part of the watch, and not a chest strap. Easy to use. Only problem is that it is very big on small wrists, and the optic sensor is uncomfortable against my wrist bones. But if I wear the face against my inner wrist, it is fine. Love the fount of information that is at my fingertips.
