👤A lot of the reviews for the 235 here are from people who wanted a fitness tracker. It's odd to me that so many people want to use the Forerunner as an everyday wristwatch, since I always thought of it as a tool for runners. Their reviews are meaningless for the serious runner. Here is a review from the perspective of a person who runs a lot and is competitive in their age group. I've been using the Forerunners for 6-7 years, working my way up from the 205 to the 305. I was excited to get the 235, not because of the no-chest-strap HRM, but because of the form factor. It felt like a brick on my wrist, but I was excited to have a Forerunner that didn't feel that way. I was excited about the idea of a device that would pick up satellites in a minute and a half. The form factor is very good, compared to my 310XT. It picks up satellites very quickly. Beyond that... I am not happy. The "current pace" function is my biggest gripe, and I'm surprised to have seen so little complaining in various online forums. It's terrible in the 235, it's slow to adjust and it's inaccurate. I had no reason to think that it would be this bad, since I had experienced it before with other Forerunners. Why has it gone backWARD? As a dedicated runner who runs a lot of half-marathons with the occasional full marathon tossed in, I need a basic set of functions from my running gps: time, distance, current pace, average pace, and lap capabilities. That's all I ask. These functions need to work well. It feels like the most critical functions of the Forerunner have been compromised for the sake of adding useless bells and whistles to the 235 model. They need to go back to basics and come up with a model for serious runners. The calories-burned, the step-counting, and the "your phone is ringing!" are all wrong. notifications, etc. Also, etc. I need a running tool. Any serious runner trying to hit a particular time goal in a race needs to be current with their pace. You need to be able to set and hold a steady pace in order to nail your finish time, and adjust that pace as circumstances dictate. The 235 is unreliable for this purpose. It takes too long to adjust to the pace that it displays. It's pre-programmed to only display pace in 5-second intervals, and seems to insist upon hitting each and every one of those in the course of adjusting the displayed pace. It won't adjust the pace display directly from "8:30" to "8:00" if I suddenly increase my pace. It's useless! The wrist-based HRM is unreliable and mildly entertaining. I didn't have false expectations about the accuracy of this technology, and I figured that it was just as accurate as it could be. How useful is it when the HRM just stops working, as it did this past weekend, when it is already done? When the HRM decided to work again for the next run, it seemed completely arbitrary. What's the point if you can't count on it? It's not possible to have a view of current data when pausing an activity; you're stuck with a display that asks if you want to "Resume" or "Save" the activity. If I'm stuck at a traffic light during a run, I would like to be able to pause the device and study the data. Not an option here. I am so happy! The 235 has made me grumpy. I'm considering replacing it with a new-old stock because it's gotten cheaper. I will lose the convenience of the wrist-based HRM, but neither of those things matters to me more than an accurate current pace feature. Please come up with a model that does the basics perfectly for runners and doesn't have silly tech-head bells and whistles.
It has 30 days of regular battery life and 40 hours of full gps mode. A Grade 5 titanium alloy and a sapphire glass touch screen are what you get with this device. Landscape, Topo and hybrid modes are included with offline mapping. Stryd power meters have built-in running power metrics from the wrist. Landscape, Topo and hybrid modes are included with offline mapping. Landscape, Topo and hybrid modes are included with offline mapping.
👤I was looking for a battery that could easily track my runs. I debated between Matrix's Powerwatch 2 and the other two. Powerwatch 2's software is terrible for Indigogo backers. I don't want to train for my first marathon because of the bells and whistles that Garmin has. I carry my phone with me on my running belt, even though it has spotify capability, because it's important for emergency calls. If I didn't need my phone at all, I'd go with the navigation device. The battery is powerful. I only charge my Coros Apex Pro once a week with a weekly average of 40 miles of running. It's not close to zero. I get battery range anxiety when it gets to the 20's. Totally unnecessary. That's how I am. The HR monitor and the gps both start up within a few seconds. I love the titanium finish and have banged up my watch many times, with no visible scratches on the titanium or the Sapphire Glass. The user experience in activated runs is very simple. Doesn't need an instruction manual. One cool feature is how to stop a run, I love that you have to roll the center dial to get it. That way, you won't have accidental pauses in your runs. To finish the run, you have to go to "Finish" and hold on for three seconds. The "3-2-1" timer is great so you won't have to worry about finishing your run. You finish it with intent! For those who want the longest battery life, great UX, quality materials, and a reasonable price, I would go for Coros Apex Pro.
👤All runners and ultra runners... This is the watch for you. A 100 mile run in the forests of Virginia. The battery lasted after tracked true. It lasted the whole race and had 25 percent battery. It is fashionable as well. I like the ability to change faces to match my clothes.
👤I own this watch for over a year. Over that time, I have owned a number of different models. I run in high heat and humidity and also cycle and swim. This beats them all in terms of ease of use, gps lock time, and generalDurability, to say nothing of the battery life. This is the first watch that locks the gps so quickly that I end up waiting for the heart rate to register instead. When running, it's very accurate. I got this watch for the altitude functions as I am a pilot and have found the pulse ox to be accurate enough to use while flying, matching the finger pulse ox to within a few percent. Two years of warranty coverage! I had an issue with the unlock function being a bit slow to respond just recently and Coros responded immediately with suggested resolutions, and when those didn't work, promptly send me out a new watch 2 day without requiring I send. Couldn't be happier. I am one of those people who always scratches the front of my watches, this one takes a huge beating with no effects to the crystal. Would buy Coros again if they were still behind their products.
You can use your watch to pay for purchases with your cards from participating banks. Personalize your watch with thousands of free watch faces, apps and widgets from their Connect IQ store. There are more than 15 indoor and outdoor sports apps. The case is made of fiber-reinforced polymer with a steel rear cover.
👤It has a number of features, including step, stair, heart rate, stress, VO2 max and sleep tracking, as well as the ability to record a number of different sports activities with or without gps data included. A wide selection of downloaded applications, app screens and clock faces make this watch quite changeable. A new clock face and a fewWidgets were added almost immediately. It doesn't offer the advanced sports metrics found in more expensive devices, but it can broadcast heart rate data to other ANT+ devices. I can send my heart rate to my older Forerunner 620 when I want to see advanced running metrics. I can send complete cycling data to any ANT+ compatible bike computer. The price for this watch new compared to the Felix 5 series of watches is fine with me. I have no complaints since I bought the refurbished model and it works like new. I will update this review if that changes.
👤Looks new. Theuctions are mostly new. There were some glitch that may have been normal. The unit was locked up while it was on the charge. It was fixed by power cycling. If not charging, did not happen again. A watch face wouldn't install correctly. I assume that both of these problems are not product defects. A bike ride is recorded. None of our gps devices registered the same ascend elevation after elevation was off. There was no prize there. At the end of the day, the battery was not as strong as it could have been. If you record a workout, you will need to pay. It could make it 2 days. I have not seen how long it will last. Will update if necessary. I bought a warrenty. * The battery only lasted 4 days on one charge.
👤This is a watch that I love. It's like new, there are no marks anywhere. Came with instructions. It was done straight up to my phone and computer. It took about an hour to charge and update. The HR and blood pressure monitor pulse were compared. The battery lasts about 5 days. 2.5 hours is how long I use it to workout. I have it connected to my cell phone. There are lots of things on the Garmin. You have to download the app for that and set it up, but I love this one, it shows you how to burn calories and burn fat. It's waterproof and easy to use, what more can you want for fitness? It's perfect for my lifestyle.
👤I've been using a pebble time for a long time and I was happy with it. I bought a new phone in September and it didn't have the Pebble app for the new phone. I returned a Fitbit Versa because it wouldn't stay connected to the phone and didn't provide reliable gps tracking. I decided on the Refurbished Vivoactive 3 after looking at options in the same price range. I am happy I did as it has performed well for me and it is very attractive. The user interface is easy to use. It doesn't need a phone or a connection to record and activity because it has its own gps. I use it as a smart lock to keep my phone open because I have never found it disconnected from the phone. I don't think the battery life is great, but I put my watch face on the charging cable every night anyways, so it doesn't matter to me. The only thing that is not nice about the Vivoactive 3 is that it is easy to long press the screen against the body and change the watch face. My answer is to set the screen to lock when recording an activity and to manually lock it after I have stopped and saved the activity.
The waterproof and durable all-in-one Polar vantage M is for those who love setting records. There is a technology called the Priority Prime Sensefusion Technology. Swimming, cycling are some of the 130+ sports that have accurate optical HR monitoring. The training load pro and recovery pro give a comprehensive view of how training sessions strain your body, follow your recovery level and get insights to your sleep to avoid overtraining or injuries. It is possible to make the most of your day even when your resources are low with the help of nighttime rejuvenation. A complete activity and training solution for an athlete is formed by the combination of Polar vantage M and Polar flow for coach.
👤As a competitive athlete, I have been a dedicated user of the polar. I still use my M400 and I was hoping to ditch it after 15 years. Pros 1 are the ones I found to be the best. The button layout is the standard for Polar. It will be easier to adapt if you have been using polar. 2. I don't like touch screen watches. I don't train to play with watches. The fitness enthusiast wants a fitness watch that they can wear all the time. The button navigation process is what I am used to in prior HR watches. 3. It has a clean appearance. It's a better looking watch than the older ones. Someone with thin wrists might be affected by it. Cons 1. The measurement of HR is not accurate. I did a lot of comparisons with my watch, with different training modes, and readings were erratic. When there was less wrist movement, the HR readings were closer to what the strap gave. Most of the time it was close. The readings were not consistent when I increased my movement and exercise intensity. This is not a good choice for performance based training. 2. The expenditure was lower than the strap monitor. If the HR readings were off, this makes sense. It wouldn't be a good choice for those trying to gain or lose weight. 3. The size of the watch may be large for a woman, but it is fine for a man. I know some women that like larger watches, so this is completely subjective. The watches from other competitors are similar. 4. Even though the computer app has more options than the watch and phone app, the sync and customization options are limited. I would like to be able to lock the screen so I don't accidentally hit a button that might pause the session. 5. I would love to have a brighter screen and a way to keep the light on. It does turn on with a flip of the wrist, but it is not always reliable and I don't always need to turn my wrist to want that. 6. The charge is terrible. It's a fancy magnetic plug rather than a straight forward wall-to-watch plug. The magnetic attachment on the wall extends to theusb cord, which can be detached from the watch if it isn't laying on the face. It's hard to explain. You will have to watch some online videos to get it. I did the same comparison testing with the VivoActive 3 and it was just as bad. I got my hands on a FitBit Alta HR and it had better readings than the other two, but still not accurate for me. I don't think they've mastered wrist based technology yet. I questioned it's accuracy when it first came out, but after reading an article that it was very accurate, I thought I'd give it a try. I really wanted to ditch the chest strap, but I was not willing to sacrifice accuracy. The watches at a higher price point would probably work the same. The arm strap is my next step. Good luck.
Become your truest potential by using the sports smartwatch, Polar Ignite, for women and men who want to push their limits the right way. It's perfect for group and team exercise. It is possible to design a slim design for 24/7. A wrist-based OHR monitor, speed, distance, and route tracking with integrated gps, calories, and color touch display are some of the essentials that your new smart workout partner has. Nightly repentance. Nightly Recharge is a measure of how well your body recovers from stress. The FitSpark Daily Training Guide is designed to give you tailored and ready-made daily workout guidance based on your recovery and readiness. Sleep plus. There are some things that can happen. The new Sleep Plus Stages feature will give you detailed sleep insights.
👤The form factor of the Ignite was nailed by Polar. This is the only tracker that takes the cake. It is the lightest tracker I can wear while sleeping. My varied activities throughout the week have finally been tracked with accurate wrist based Heart Rate andGPS. The gps system has measured up to the actual distances so far. The sleep metrics are very easy to understand, although the logic behind them is beyond me. It is interesting to see the metrics on a level that I can adjust my sleep schedule to. The new features that recommend the workout of the day are pretty cool and seem to be a new feature for a Polar watch. I haven't had a chance to follow these yet, but I am interested in seeing some recovery recommendations since that has been a pain point for me.
👤I bought this watch because I wanted a clean and lightweight design watch in a casual environment that would keep me honest about my training activity. It has met my expectations so far. I have used this watch for many things, including swimming (25M pool), road cycling, trail and road running, and especially for the "sleep tracker" feature. After one week, the experience in my training has improved as I make small changes recommended by the device, and I have found the watch easy to use for all these activities. The touch screen is intuitive and I like having only one button to push. The heart rate information on the watch was easy to see. I like the suggested work out routines and have started to follow them. I like the polar flow app and how it easily syncs and uploads my data from the day. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I use the app, as I review my activities and see the evaluation that comes with it. I want to work out again the next day. I had to sync my watch with the Polar Flow App instead of making the adjustment on the watch to enable "auto stop" and set lap length in miles. The watch works perfectly for me now that this has been done one time. This Triathletes really likes this device. I'm going to buy two new black and yellow watch strap colors just to keep my look fresh for the rest of the summer and fall because I'm reading that the watch straps are easy to change.
👤The watch has an issue with the gps. The polar has a lot of issues when it comes to tracking the path, compared to my phone gps. I was not expecting the accuracy of a gps device, but at least it was close to a mobile phone. The HR monitor works well and the sleep functions are great. The features are limited and the user experience is compromised because there is only one button.
👤My exercise program is limited by heart rates after a recent heart attack. I have been using a chest strap monitor, which is the most accurate heart rate monitor. I was looking for an accurate wrist HRM. I don't always need a chest strap. I bought the Ignite because it performed well on a video that compared it to a chest strap. I am very happy. I did a comparison of my heart rate with the Ignite and it was very close to my upper limit. The chest strap is quicker to react to changes than the ignite, but that is fine with me. I tested both activities and the Ignite was accurate within a few seconds. The watch should be snug above the wrist bone, according to the manual. I think that placement is an important factor for accuracy. There is a comment on battery life. When I am doing a training activity like walking, running, or biking, the watch measures my heart rate continuously, tracks my location with a gps device, and I can choose to have the watch face light up when I raise and turn my head. The watch burns 10% of the battery life per 30 minutes with those functions on. It burns 4% per 30 minutes if you set it on an indoor activity. I'm not sure if that's the reason for the difference, but the indoor activities don't have to use the gps feature. My wrist is small, about 7 inches around. I was worried the watch would be too large. It is light-weight and the band is light, so it doesn't feel big. The yellow band that I bought is light and made of Silicone. The buckle is light. It is easy to adjust it to the right tightness because it has holes every 3/16 inches. I'll accept the risk in return for keeping the weight of the watch light because I'm not sure how long it will hold up.
PremiumGPS running/triathlon watch with wrist based heart rate; strap material: Silicone; compatible with all phones. The watch only weighs 49 grams and is comfortable to wear all day. Provides elevation changes with a built in barometer. Evaluates your training status to indicate if you are overtraining or undertraining. Provides advanced dynamics for running, cycling and swimming. The bezel is made of Fiber reinforced polymer.
👤The ROW model of the watch may not be available from this listing. The main downside is that the new features and bug fixes from Garmin will take up to 6 months to be applied to the ROW version. If you run into issues with your watch due to the version difference, you may be refused service by the company. Buy at your own risk. This was not advertised in the item description, but it is cheaper than retail.
👤The non-US versions of the Forerunner 935 are being sold by Perfect Trading Inc. If you get one of the non-US versions, you won't be able to get the latest features and bug fixes for US customers. Perfect Trading agreed that I could return the watch. If a seller sells grey market products in the US, they should clearly mark them as such and say which one. The grey market product has limitations. The latest features and bug fixes will not be available. Explain if the manufacturers warranty is valid for grey market products in the US. I'm not sure what Garmin's policy is, I know that some manufacturers don't honor their warranty on grey market products. If Perfect trading clearly marks non-US products, I will remove the negative review.
👤I returned the Fenix 5 and 5s I bought. I had hoped that those watches would turn on me. I bought a 3rd one. After a few days, I couldn't see myself running or biking with that watch. I had to keep that beast strapped to my wrist because of its heft. I was ready to throw down and be a Fenix fan boy, but suddenly I see comparisons to the Forerunner 935, and I am sad. Really? I couldn't be happier because I got one. The 935 weighs half as much as the Fenix 5 and has the same amount of internet access. The straps on this watch are more comfortable than the ones on the Fenix 5/3. I can sleep with it and not feel uncomfortable. The features of the Fenix 5 have been spot on, check the forums to know what I'm talking about. If you're going to run and bike and hike your ass off, you should definitely get the 935, even if you're dead set on chasing the bling.
👤I had a lot of problems with this watch and called for help. The Asian Market Version was confirmed by them. Which does not allow for software updates. They are going to help me. You will be stuck with software and no updates, so make sure this isn't the Asian Market Version.
👤The back of the box is pictured in a photo, it was the Asia Pacific model that I received. The gps battery life is listed on the box as 21 hours, but the listing says 24 hours. This isn't apparent in the listing, but please be aware that this may not be the same edition that you are expecting.
👤There is a warning. I received an Asian version without warning. It wouldn't update past 8.0. The company is now on 9.5. The watch face froze and went black as it showed a "pixelated" display. Up to that point in time, it was a great fitness watch.

Multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, Glonass and Galileo) support helps track in more challenging environments. Train with activity profiles and monitor your heart rate. Silicone is the material of the strap. Automatic data uploads to the online fitness community and smart notifications with a compatible phone are some of the things you can do to stay connected.

👤I have been on a frustrating activity tracker and smart watch journey. I was looking for something that didn't seem right. I like to hunt, hike, bike, and occasionally run. An accurate altimeter, barometer, andGPS are things that are very important to me. The first thing I bought was the Fenix 3 HR. I thought I had found the one that was impressive in the beginning. The issue was the altimeter. It wasn't accurate. I waited for the Fenix 5. Same issue. It was worse than the 3. I was told to put the watch in warm soapy water. I continued to experience the same issue even after this seemed to reset it back to normal. I decided not to put my watch in a warm glass of soapy water every night. The 5 plus appeared to solve the issues. But then, garmin made a change to the Instinct. This watch has caught my eye so far. It is light and comfortable. The Fenix watches are large and heavy to wear. You forget you are wearing a watch. The features are great. It has everything I need. I don't care about some of the measurements the Fenix gives you. Some people have commented on the display. I don't agree. It would be similar to E Ink from a book. It is a pleasure to look at and readable. It is black and white. The keys are easy to use. The menus are very fast. You can use the settings to get where you want. The buttons are very good and I have not accidentally pressed one while bending my wrist. The accuracy of the ABC sensors is still being tested but so far it is looking great. I can not say enough about this watch. It seems like a great model from Garmin that will fit in with the niche hunting/outdoors market. I will give an update in a month. I have had this watch for a few weeks and have taken it on several hunting trips. I am very impressed with this watch. This watch is light and comfortable. I think I forgot how nice it is to wear a watch that you forget is attached to your wrist, because I have been wearing heavier watches over the years. I didn't like wearing my watches to bed. I would get into my wrist because it was too bulky. Tracking seems to be accurate. When you are tracking an activity, the attitude has been accurate. What I like about this watch is it is comfortable. It is lightweight and responsive. Menus and screen. The buttons arecessed to avoid Accidental Presses. I only have a few complaints and suggestions to improve the watch. When you lock the keys, you can hold any button for a short time in order tounlock the watch. The amount of time it takes to hold the button is too long. It takes about half a second for it to be unlocked currently. This is a small complaint. The screen is a proprietary material. I would like it to be a display made of sapphires. You can't tell if there is a screen protector on the face because I put one on it. The battery indicator should show a percentage as opposed to the 5 bars in a battery indicator. It would be nice if they changed that. Please ask me questions. I would be happy to answer. Over the years, I've done a lot of research on these watches and believe I have finally found the perfect watch for my needs. I've used all of the watches. This is my favorite watch. An absolutely great watch is still available. Every single day, this watch is on my wrist. It is still very comfortable. I have had a couple issues that I will address. It is a button on the watch. The watch was still under warranty. The watch was replaced quickly. They received an A+ for their customer service. I would be SOL if it had gone out after the warranty period. I think it is a one year warranty. I use this watch a lot. It is always worn. It has held up very well. I still think it is an amazing watch for the price. The lock feature on the watch is one of the issues I stated in the review. You can lock the screen. It is very easy to get it unlocked by bending your wrist and hitting a button. This could be a simple fix. The amount of time required to press a button is not a problem. It doesn't happen very often. It can be very frustrating if it does during an activity. This will be my last update. I will buy another watch whenever this one dies because it has been an amazing watch for me. I hope the watch continues to be improved. All the boxes are checked for my needs.

👤The Foreunner 45s are in White. I want to compliment the customer support of the company and give them an A+ rating before I discuss the specifics of the watches themselves. They have always replaced the watches if they can't resolve the watch issues. If you have a difficult technical issue, you can always call Eric, a tech rep that can answer the question and get you on your way. Amazon support is the best in class. I have always found the watches from Garmin to be more accurate. How do I know? My wife's Versa registered almost 4-miles while my wife's Fitbit registered 3.1 miles around the high school track. My wife was upset when I told her she over estimated her runing distances. I told her that I'm just the messenger. The 45s will have a smaller profile at 39mm. I know it will be big enough for an old man to read it on the fly. The accuracy and longevity of the watches made by the company is making them more attractive. I will give you a run down of how it performs during tennis and pickleball matches after I receive my white 45s. Stay informed.
👤After about 4 months, my 45 died. Absolutely dead. Nothing worked. Customer support was the place I contacted them. They will replace it. They sold me back to them at my expense after I shipped the faulty watch. They will not ship me the replacement until they get the piece of shit they sold me. I don't have to pay to send this watch back to them because I didn't use it after 4 months.
👤I bought this watch to track my running workouts. The appearance is great. The height is thinner than older, clunky Garmins, and the diameter is perfect for my medium sized men's wrist. I like how the watch face is always on, but not always visible, with the option to push a button to heighten illumination. Recording a workout is simple, it takes a few minutes to lock on, but start/stop, laps, save, etc. are all easy to do. Once I downloaded the apps to my phone, I could sync my workouts to the Garmin. The heart rate monitor is accurate. The faces are clear. The weather is even told by it. The watch band is too flexible, sometimes hard to thread into the clasp, is my only negative. It might be more rigid. I think this watch is good.
👤I got a 39mm one. I think the smaller the better because I have a small wrist. The screen has a big size that makes it easy to glance over while running. The color was not purple. Still very nice! It was easy to figure out functions. garmin app is required to have your phone and watch in sync. You save and use your phone garmin app when you complete your run or walk. All of your data can be seen. There are many options to upload from there. I have kept this for a few weeks and have run a lot. The battery life was not an issue. Some people complained about the flexible rubber wrist band, but I liked it. You know about the rep of Garmin. I got a watch for my first marathon. Very pleased so far!

👤The original Vivoactive was losing battery life, so I upgraded it to this watch. The battery life was a big selling point for this watch. I did two 5 mile runs in the first 2 weeks and it was at 30% by the end of the 2 weeks. I didn't think I would like it, but I like it. I'm used to large watches. This one is small but not as large as I'm used to. The size is right. I've only used it for running and biking. The suggested workouts feature has not been used by me. The notifications use a light background and a short vibration. The buttons are easy to use. I did an extensive move after I got this watch, and it got banged around a bit, but no marks or scratches on it. If you want a lot of features on the watch, you should not get it. If you want long battery life, accurate gps tracking, and good sleep/health/heart rate tracking, you should get this watch. I would make this choice again.
👤There is an update. The watch has undergone several software updates and the battery life has improved to what was promised. It has mostly stopped the sudden, steep drops in battery life (no more going to bed with it at 80% and waking up to 40%). I think the software updates helped. When I bought it, it was v1.something. The first few times I charged this watch, the battery life was amazing. The charges have gone from 2 weeks to 30 hours since then. I have removed several features that are supposed to improve battery life. I used it for a workout and the battery went from full to 40%. In the last 4 hours, it has dropped from 40% to 30%.
👤I got this watch with great expectations. I like the look, but I would have liked it to have a "Strength Workout" or "Gym" activity profile. The battery life is my greatest disappointment. Within 3 days of getting my brand new watch, it was obvious that my battery was draining and I was not using it. I would be lucky to have a few days of battery life. I was told that a software update was pending after I made contact with the company. After some help, my battery life improved, but now it seems to be draining again. I made contact with the company again and waited for a response. It's very disappointing for a watch that's not even two weeks old.
👤I have never owned a watch like this before. I was looking for a replacement for that that died on me a couple weeks ago. I didn't want to use a tracker again and decided to use a tracker from Garmin. I settled on the Forerunner 55 after looking at many models. It had everything I wanted. A quality brand with HR, sleep tracking, notifications and - like most Garmin products - has a good reputation of being a great fitness tracker among other things. For the watch itself. The first thing I noticed was that it was small. It was about 10mm smaller than my Ionic. I like a watch that covers my wrist, so this was already a problem for me. I knew that the watch didn't have a touch screen, but I was willing to give it a try even though it didn't have a physical button on the side of the watch. I didn't like having to press buttons. It took me 30 pushes of buttons to wake me up. I found it to be cumbersome and inefficient. The display doesn't look like a touch screen. It isn't very bright and doesn't have a bright color indoors. The display is quite dim and it was difficult to see. You can increase the display's brightness by pressing a button, but it's not that great of a difference. The watch face was set to pure white. They looked like a dull grey. After seeing how dim the display was indoors, I went outside to see what it would look like in the sun, and it was even brighter thanks to the reflective properties of the display. It made the display look like I would want it to be all the time - bright white and dark black. It doesn't have a bright touchscreen so it's the biggest drawbacks for me. When I lifted or twisted my wrist, the screen would come on. I was able to see the display clearly. If I wanted to see the time I had to push a button to increase the brightness. It seems like an unnecessary thing to have to do. Unless you're outside, it's not an issue. The watch is nice, even though it is not perfect. It looked like good quality. It was responsive when entering commands. The companion phone app is better than the Fitbit's, it comes with a lot of apps and features. I didn't use this watch for a full day before I decided it wasn't for me. There was nothing against the watch. I would probably think it was a great watch if I continued to use it. It was not for me for the things I mentioned. If the display looked the same when it was in the sun.

👤It was better than I expected. The heart rate was off at first, but I was wearing a regular watch. You have to wear it above the wrist bone. This is an actual watch with other features, and it gives me a lot more analytics, which is why I switched to this. The Garman gave a similar breakdown of sleep cycles, heart rate, and temperature, but also gave a free running program that was very easy to use. The biggest challenge with the Garman is that it's so versatile, I had to watch a lot of videos to figure out how to use it. With no subscription pricing, I think the superior device is the Garmin.
👤Product was new and wouldn't have known if it had been refurbished. I was looking for a fitness watch that had all of the features I was looking for. The battery life of my other brand watch is less than that of this one.
👤I got a perfect watch. I saved myself$15 and helped the planet by going for the refurbished one, I'm glad it pulled through. The watch is amazing. You need a watch if you're into running and working out. I suggest that you watch a few videos on the website or watch a few videos on the website before you buy a sport watch from the company. If you're a swimmer, this watch can track you, but it might not give you the best metrics compared to one devoted to swimming. The watch is devoted to running and tracks a lot of biking and other workouts. It really depends on what you enjoy working out the most. You can find good reviews on the internet. It's a great watch, I bought it two years ago, and it still has a lot of health features, and it came in perfect quality.
👤After 8 months on this refurbished watch from Amazon, it now has a large circle of dead pixels, which is a pity because I love the watch for HR accuracy and a very simple map feature. Circle is getting bigger. There is no damage or scratches on the watch. The Amazon guarantee is only 3 months. I was very disappointed because my last forerunner 235 lasted for 5 years before the HR stopped being accurate.
👤The product is amazing. Excellent battery life and pulse ox!
👤Older versions have less battery life. The sleep and heart rate tracking is not as accurate as other devices.
👤I've had the same experience as another reviewer, dead pixels after 8 months, and no good option for exchange. The penny wise pound foolish should have paid more for the warranty. There is a known issue on the site. The fitness data was a bit weird compared to my prior model. My refurbished 235 ran perfectly for 5 years before I upgraded to the 245.

👤There isn't a perfect smart watch. The watch's connection to my phone was unreliable and the navigation system was clunky, but the integration with Spotify took forever to upload songs. When I connected my AirPods to go for a run, the volume on the watch would go to two steps below the loudest music, so they would hurt my ears. I stopped the music and put thepods in my pocket because they were stuck at the louder volume and I couldn't turn them down. What is the point? An Apple Watch isn't perfect. Either. I wanted a music player so I may return to one. I don't have to carry my phone. I wish they wouldn't make these watches do so many things. The features don't work as they are described.
👤I was happy to find that the unit was basically new, even though I knew it would be great. Who knows if the internals are okay. I feel that way. okay If it starts to glitch, I have 90 days to make a claim. I would take the chance with Renewed.
👤I am very happy with it. The wristband had to be replaced. It does all I need. It had a 24 hour spo support. Bit for the price paid off.
👤The description says renewed new. I was disapointed after I got it. It works great so far, but what kind of warranty do I have?
👤The first smart watch I own has exceeded expectations. I wear it for both running and crossfit workouts, and also during the day since I barely notice. I can finally go out running without my phone and the music feature works great.
👤Great! No garmin pay, but music, great battery, bike gps on point, swimming never tried yet, but will. The timer is a great running watch that tracks VO2 and is cool.
👤It works, but it has connection issues and doesn't always seem accurate. I love exercising but I will probably return for a new model.
👤I can't wait to put many miles on it, it looks brand new out of box, works amazing, and can't wait to put many miles on it. Would have been foolish to not know it was renewed.
👤The forerunner 235 was the one that I was very happy with. I bought this because it was easy to download music and I love it. Being similar in layout to the 235 makes it easy to navigate. Lots of other useful stuff as well.
👤La montre is pas in the moment of the commande ce ne pas.
