Garmin Forerunner 235 review: The best watch for casual and serious runners

 

The Forerunner 235 tracks pace and distance, provides easy-to-read smartphone alerts and has a ton of running features that are typically found on more expensive watches.

The Garmin Forerunner 235 has accurate GPS for tracking runs and a 24/7 wrist-based heart-rate monitor. It can track all-day activities like steps and sleep, and can display notifications from iPhone and Android devices. It's water-resistant and can be...

Heart rate accuracy drops off during interval training, there are occasional connection and syncing problems and Garmin's Connect app can be confusing to navigate.

The Garmin Forerunner 235 offers the best value for serious and casual runners looking for an all-in-one running watch and fitness tracker.

Garmin Forerunner 235: The Best Running Watch Yet

 

Moderate to active runners will love what the Forerunner 235 has to offer. It's thin, light and easy to use; accurately tracks your location and heart rate while you're running; and lets you customize its display. The only feature it lacks that I wish...

Accurate GPS, heart-rate monitor ; Very thin and light ; Easy to read in sunlight ; Customizable interface

App could be better organized ; No built-in storage for music

Thanks to its fast GPS, accurate heart-rate monitoring, and thin and light design, the Garmin Forerunner 235 is the best GPS running watch for the money.

Garmin Forerunner 235 review

 

Now cheaper than ever, can the Garmin Forerunner 235 still keep up with the pack?

Resting heart rate insights Sharp looks, lightweight design Good value

Intermittent syncing issues A bit plastic Sleep tracking needs work

The Garmin Forerunner 235 still manages to stand out, despite its age. A lower price helps, but the depth and breadth of its tracking skills and training insights ensure it can still compete with newer running watches.

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Love it!!!!!!!

 

Had this just over a week now, so so happy with this, I previously had a Tom Tom, this is so much easier to use and a lot more detailed, and the fact you don't have to plug into a pc or laptop to set up is Great. Can't recommend enough.
