Garmin Forerunner 35 GPS running watch review

 

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

The Forerunner 35 is a great, light, attractive, water resistant smartwatch that looks as good as it functions. We liked the smart notifications on this watch so much that we’d suggest the Forerunner 35 to anyone looking for a smartwatch regardless of...

Garmin Forerunner 35 review

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Very pleased

 

Doe far more than expected. Keeps me thinking fit. Only drawback is fairly regular charging to begin with - but this improves the more you charge and wear it.
