      Answer

      Both models have GPS and built-in optical heart rate monitoring. A few of the extra features that the Forerunner 235 has include additional running features (VO2 Max Estimate, Recovery Advisor, Race Predictor, etc), smartwatch functionality (smart notifications, music controls, etc), Connect IQ app store access, and GLONASS for increased GPS accuracy. -OA

      Answer

      You can run the activity through "Other Activity" and then adjust it once you have synced with Garmin Connect. However, if you are looking for multiple sports at a lower price point than the Fenix, I would suggest the Vivoactive HR that has a huge library of sports tracking built in and is also cheaper than this watch.

        Answer

        Yes, while setting up your 235, it'll look for a Bluetooth enabled smart device and when it locates one, it will display a code for you to enter on the screen of your 5S and up. Once connected, it'll automatically recognize it from now on. Use the Garmin Connect app for a more easily configurable setup between the two devices.
