For starters, I’m a runner so any additional activities (biking, walking, whatever) that this watch tracks are just bonus to me and there are certainly quite a few of them. Also, I can’t speak to the VO2 and fitness testing since I don’t have a HR monitor but I definitely like the option. I got this Garmin after researching some of the other “smart watches” available at the time (main competitors were Fitbit Surge, Garmin Vivofit and Microsoft Band2) and hearing a lot of positive feedback about Garmin in general from fellow runners (they do make some pretty solid GPS navigation for cars so I figured it would translate for running watches too). I didn’t care much for a watch with HR monitoring built in (see Garmin 235) as the technology still seems a bit fluky and judging by the gnarly pictures of skin irritation, that concept still seems to have a ways to go. All of that led to choosing this bad boy and I could not be happier!

My best Garmin watch so far!

Update: After 6 months of almost continuous use (I run about every other day) this is still by far the best running watch I have owned. The display is clear and customizable, it’s light, and it just has the best user interface ever – it’s simply intuitive. The range of functionality provided meets my needs. If I lost this one, I’d buy another in a second. Highly recommended.

Overall, I am really enjoying the Forerunner 230. MapMyRun will always be my first-love for run tracking… but I was increasingly tired of carrying my phone on runs. Its not a big deal, but I wanted something a little lighter and less intrusive so I could unplug a little. This guy solved that issue for me.

Best intermediate "true" Sports watch on the market.

The Forerunner 230 and 235 are the best intermediate GPS Running watches on the market. I personally have the 230, which is the same as the 235 sans the wrist based HR sensor, I decided to go with the 230 and the Heart Rate chest strap because of the huge battery life discrepancy between the two. The 235 will give you about 3-5 days, whereas the 230 will give you about 7-10 days.

Awesome investment

I had heard really good things about Garmin trackers for runners. My husband loves to run, so I decided to get him to for his birthday. The first week he owned it, he got to use it for a half marathon. The stats it gave him we’re almost identical to what the race results were. He loves that he can now look at his wrist while he’s running to check his pace. This has helped him with his consistency, and he loves running even more now!

Overall I like this as an easy-to-use device to track real-time running speed and splits.
