I’m not feeling 100% today (I think I caught Adam’s cold), so today’s post is going to be super short. I hope that’s okay! (I popped up a new post yesterday as well.)
Over the weekend I bought the Garmin Forerunner 235. I loved my Garmin Vívoactive but I really wanted a watch with heart rate monitoring built in since tracking that data is something that’s important to me now.
Since I no longer need my Garmin Vívoactive I wanted to see if there is a runner out there who would like it?
The watch retails for about $150 and it has a lot of great features:
- Tracks running, swimming, biking, golf and walking
- Touch screen
- Control your music
- Activity/step tracking
- Sleep tracking
- Shows text messages
- Shows tweets and instagram messages
- Can set intervals and alerts
- Pairs with the Garmin Connect store so you can download free watch faces, widgets, etc.
- Pairs with bluetooth headphones
- Pairs with most heart rate monitors
- Lots more 🙂
If you don’t like the white band or want a new one you can buy replacements on the Garmin site for $14. They come in a variety of different colors to suit your personality!
Ideally I would love to send this watch to someone who doesn’t already have a running watch.
If you’re just starting to train for your first big race, or the price of Garmin watches has kept you from splurging please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment below and I’ll reach out to you.
I hope I can find my Vívoactive a good home 🙂 it’s really a great watch and if it had heart rate tracking built it I would definitely still be using it!
What’s your favorite running watch?
When you first started running, what type of tracker did you use?
I just used the RunKeeper app!
PS: Just because of shipping prices I’m only going to send off this watch to someone in the United States.
