The Forerunner 35 is a lightweight, attractive, water-resistant smartwatch that is near-perfect for runners.

All you will ever need!


Bought this about a month ago and it does everything I need, yes you could buy a watch with colour/touch screen, maps etc but in all honestly I doubt I'd ever use it much. If you run and want to know how fast your going, how far you have been how fast...
