Good balance of Tech and Budget

Comments about Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS Running Watch with HRM Monitors:

Replaced my old Garmin 410 - Love the BlueTooth connection - read up on the HRM - there are many tips and tricks. My suggestion is that you put the watch on 20 minutes before you run so your HR is stabilized and then wear it 20 minutes after. Of course if you wear it all the time then you are all set!

Comments about Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS + Wrist HRM Monitors:

So far I love my Garmin 235. Easy to use, and like the bigger numbers on the face. It was easy to set up, and go from one screen to another. Like the HR option right on the wrist, I also like all the information you log from it from one devise.
I would recommend the screen protection.

Comments about Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS + Wrist HRM Monitors:

Love it! It didn't take long to learn how to use it, and I really like the HRM. Only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because sometimes it takes a while to sync. No matter - it will be a valuable training partner!

    Comments about Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS Running Watch with HRM Monitors:

    This is the 3rd Garmin Watch I have owned and is the best by far. It is easy to navigate through the screens and each screen can be set up with 4 data elements. It transfers easily to Garmin Connect and provides a lot of information. I just ran a half marathon and loved he watch! I think the battery is more than sufficient. Much better than previous versions.

    Still unsure...

    By Julie

    from New Jerser

    Comments about Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS Running Watch with HRM Monitors:

    Received a unit that kept freezing up on me. Tried everything from hard resets and deleting all files, watch must have been faulty. The watch seemed awesome if it would stay running for longer than a few minutes at a time.
    I applaud Road Runner Sports for their no hassle returns - I will re-review when I receive the new FR235.

    BTW - the Marsala looks GREAT!!!! slight hint of red showing through the band, and I like the little bit of red on the face

    Fourth Garmin GPS I've Owned

    By Runningdog

    from GA

    Comments about Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS Running Watch with HRM Monitors:

    The 235 is the fourth Garmin GPS I've owned and is by far the best.

    One problem that plagued earlier generations was the tendency to lose satellite fix during runs. The 235 does not have this issue. A second issue in shady areas was the length of time it took the GPS to acquire satellite fix. Again this issue seems to have been resolved.

    My earlier GPSs had larger displays. My older eyes have a little trouble with the 235's display, but this is a minor irritant given the overall product. Finally a wrist mounted GPS that is not clunky!

    I've used each generation of the Garmin GPSs I've owned as a training tool. For those on the fence about the benefits of a GPS, I unequivocally recommend the 235. You wil see the training benefits. While I no longer race, or train, at an elite level, I still enjoy logging my training electronically. Who knows the 235 might even motivate me to buckle down and race as a golden master!

    Easy HR monitor

    By Fred

    from Indy

    Pros

    • Comfortable
    • Fast Gps Lock
    • Modest Size

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Indoor Exercises
      • Running

      Comments about Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS Running Watch with HRM Monitors:

      Got this from Garmin in trade for a pesky Forerunner 225. Much thinner than 225, and gets HR with less band tension. In cold weather, I pull back sleeve to see, or some of my Nike shirts have thumbholes that fit over watch. Solid HR data, sometimes with brief pause in Hr or pace data for the first few seconds of an activity. Much better than Forerunner 225, or even some strap based Forerunners, all of which had a tendency to count cadence as HR for first few minutes of activity. GPS lock is fast, even indoors. Battery life is fine for me, but I don't wear 24/7.

      • Hr Not Avail W Sleeves

      Best Uses

      • Running

      Comments about Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS Running Watch with HRM Monitors:

      I'm happy to own this. It's really useful for both running and activity tracking. I love that it's customizable.

      It wasn't super easy to set up but once you learn its quirks, it's not too hard.

      Biggest peeves: battery life lasts about two runs and two days max. About 1/4 of the length of time advertised. Bummer. Another con is in Michigan in the cold I can't use HR outside as it needs skin contact to detect through wrist. But I do love that it's wrist based.

      It also isn't accurate when using HR for weight lifting at all. Not sure why.

      Overall it's nice to own but I'd say 3 of 5. If they fix battery then 4 of 5. Certain changes could upgrade it further.
