    I like the GPS function of the watch and its band hugs the wrist well as to keep it in place and still be comfortable

    Absolutely love this watch. I generally run 4-5 days a week, sometimes with GPS and sometimes using indoor run, and the battery will last me roughly 5-6 days. Watch is easy to use and sync wjth Garmin Connect and Strava. GPS is accurate and haven't had any issues with the heart rate sensor.

    I love running in this GPS watch, and it was very helpful with recording mile splits on the track workout days.

    This running watch can also double as a daily activity tracker. The GPS is fast on the uptake, and unlike some other trackers, does not require me to carry my phone when using it. Also, the GPS is more accurate than many models I've tried, and super-fast in locating satellites for positioning. You can get heart-rate readings without a chest strap, too!

    Great fitness watch! Connects to GPS quickly, has the added bonus of counting steps. The only thing I have had difficulty with is the charging system. It is a clip and if you are not careful the watch will not charge. Once charged though , you can go a week in between charges. It has lots of fun features that are fun to have and a better manual would be nice for setting up all those fun preferences. Overall a dependable GPS watch that can't be beat for accuracy and dependability.

    GPS functionality works great. I'm not a hard core runner but I do like to keep stats on my runs. GPS lock is quick and the tracking so far has performed well. The sleep tracking and step counting are oftentimes inaccurate. They are either over what I have done or severely under. I also wear a jawbone UP3 to track my steps. My only complaint is this watch doesn't give the option for indoor and outdoor walking along with a list of other activities that can be found on cheaper Garmin products.

    I've done many miles with this watch, and it holds up very well. Battery life is excellent - it survives on standby being forgotten in my running bag for 10 days or so, and can last through 2 full days of skiing with GPS on.

    I purchased the Garmin 235 to help with monitoring my runs (GPS) and the wrist based heart monitor is excellent. I like the comfort and the ability to just look down to see my stats.

    After high school I took a break from running, now a few years later, the stats and GPS features of this watch are perfect to help me ease back into it as it is concise and not overwhelming. Easy to use!

    The battery life - both with and without using GPS - is great and that's a huge one for me, as I don't want to have to charge a watch every day or 3 or even 5. My one nit would be that I haven't found a count-down / count-up timer, but then I didn't first research whether it had one.
