Heart Rate Measured at the Wrist:
Elevate™ heart rate technology² measures heart rate at the wrist 24/7 - you don't need a chest strap. the colourful gauge identifies your heart rate zone and beats per minute in real time.

On and Off the Road Running:
A built-in accelerometer captures distance and pace data when you’re running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. It also doubles as an activity tracker, counting your steps and calories throughout the day, and even reminds you to move after sitting for more than an hour! It's compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites to locate your position whether you’re running deep in the woods or near tall buildings.

It's simple to use:
Easy-to-understand charts, graphs, maps and more let you view your activities, track your progress and wirelessly upload and share directly with the online Garmin Connect network. You can compete with friends on weekly step or running challenges, and compare your results in real time, using the LiveTrack feature. The app can receive current weather conditions, forecasts and smart notifications.

frankly brilliant, 05 July 2016
By HowardB (leicester)
Mine has been faultless. Easy to read and accurate, it beeps in disturbing synchronicity with other runners watches. The guide HR is useful and seems inline with other measuring devices. Excellent battery life
All round much less of a compromise than it could have been.

Unfinished product, 05 June 2016
By ChrisF
Definitely an unfinished product, even with version 4.60 of the software (current to June 5th 2016).

The time kept drifting out (sometimes by as much as 2h30 )- totally unacceptable for a device you're meant to wear 24/7. Telling the time is kind of fundamental.

Also had constant lockups of the device, one of which was on the time screen, so I didn't even notice for ages. Very frustrating.

The HR sensor, which lets be honest, is why you would choose the 235 over the 230 is useless. Mine kept randomly shooting up to 100 while resting (from 50) even though I wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary.

Oh, regarding the smart notifications feature. It also feels unfinished and tacked on. It mirrors ALL of your phones notifications. You have the choose of sound on/off and vibration on/off, but thats it.

I bought this mainly to replace my FR 620, but I could not wait to go back to it frankly. I just do not trust the 235 to not crash or provide decent metrics on my runs.

Cannot fault, 03 June 2016
By Lidds (Hull)
Top watch for the sportsman/woman out there. Built in heart rate monitor is exceptional and the gadgets are fun to use. Highly recommended
