Best runners watch ever!
My Garmin Forerunner 630 had a cracked glass. Insurance paid for a new Forerunner 935. $579 from Rebel when they matched an online price I had. This is a substantial step up from my 630. For starters it’s a triathlon watch and can be used in open water whereas the 630 is simply a great runners watch. The 935 is essentially the Fenix 5 without all the extra weight only weighing about 13 grams as opposed to 20 something for the Fenix. Might not sound like much but I really noticed the weight difference in my wrist when I was deciding between the ...2. The 935 gives a lot more data than I will ever need and I only use it for running so really overkill for me - but hey - thanks to insurance I got a great watch that gives me all my running data including heart rate, cadence, gogg gps tracking and maps of where you go, VO2 max data, work load ... you name it it tells you. Download the Garmin app and you also get it in more detail on your phone but I’m relying on the watch itself more and more to check out my runs. Unlike the overly touchy touch screen on the 630 it uses 5 buttons on the sides which are really easy to work out and help you navigate through all the data. Like all Garmins it gives you notifications through blue tooth from your phone so I know who’s ring me at work when I haven’t got the phone on me - very useful for what I do. Good size if you like a large watch and I downloaded a big easy to read watch face from the free Garmin store- lots of widgets and watch faces in there to choose from. As I said - overkill for the average or even serious runner and even at $579 an expensive option but I’m really glad I broke my 630 ... I love this watch!
