If you’re looking to upgrade your current running watch and ditch the annoying chest strap, the all-new Garmin Forerunner 235 with its many convenient features is a really smart choice: this dual-function running watch and activity tracker provides running metrics, smartphone notifications, and an accurate heart rate measured right through your wrist, giving you data both indoors and out. Plus, with the added activity-tracking feature, you'll know exactly how much you're moving and burning throughout the day. Stay in the know on a large, fully customizable color graphics screen with downloadable apps, data, and widgets, although incredibly, the Forerunner 235 is still conveniently sized.
Simply guestimating your calorie burn can dramatically affect your weight loss goals and performance. Using your at-wrist heart rate, the Forerunner 235’s accurate calorie count will give you a better idea of what to consume, so you'll see improvement with performance or weight loss goals.
The Forerunner 235 conveniently runs for 12 weeks in watch mode and up to 17 hours in training mode, giving you potentially over a month‘s worth of training time without the need to charge.
If you’ve ever wondered what happens throughout the day, whether before or after your workout, the all-in-one Forerunner 235 will let you know, measuring your steps, distance, and calories throughout the day. With all of this newfound data, you may just find that you haven’t been moving enough or that you’re eating too little for your activity – either way, you’ll see a boost in all of your fitness goals with these added tools.
No need to squint down at your watch, which can slow you down in the long run. The 235 has a 44% larger screen (complete with at-a-glance color graphs) than that of its 220 predecessor, yet it’s the same convenient size.
Just like the Forerunner 920XT, the 235 features both GPS and GLONASS, a Russian-based navigating system that gives you an additional 24 satellites for more reliable accuracy.
The Forerunner 235 virtually replaces your compatible smartphone while you’re at the gym or on the road, providing call, text, and email alerts – even calendar reminders.
Train more effectively than ever before with Forerunner 235’s V02 Max and Recovery Advisor features; this watch even uses your heart rate to predict your race times at various distances.
Moving your workout indoors because of the cold or heat? No sweat. The Forerunner 235 has a built-in accelerometer.
Finally, you’ll get a more personalized workout thanks to the downloadable watch faces, weather widgets, apps and more. Use Garmin Connect for automatic uploading and more advanced training suggestions - all complimentary!
