Get comprehensive, real-time run statistics, including wrist-based heart rate data, with the Garmin Forerunner 235 in black and gray. This GPS- and GLONASS-supported running watch shows you distance, pace, and heart rate data on its 1.23" color display. Additionally, the 235 incorporates more advanced running metrics and features, including Virtual Pacer, VO2 max estimate, and more, giving you all the data you need to be a better and more efficient runner. An accelerometer is built in, so you can still capture running data when you're running indoors without the need for a separate foot pod accessory. In addition to running data, the Forerunner 235 also works as an everyday wellness and activity tracker. It counts your steps, calories burned, monitors your sleep quality, and will cue you to move when you've been sitting too long.

The Forerunner 235 enables you to share all your run and activity data and monitor your progress at Garmin Connect. Garmin Connect is Garmin's free online community where you can plan, save, and share your activities. Download the Garmin Connect Mobile application to your compatible smartphone and all your activity data can be automatically uploaded from your Forerunner 235 to Garmin Connect.

The Forerunner 235's rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts up to 11 hours in full training mode (using GPS-tracking and full running features) and up 9 days in watch mode (including activity tracking, smart notifications, and heart rate monitoring). It can store up to 200 hours of running and activity data, so even if you can't sync right away, you won't lose any important information. Additionally, the Forerunner 235 is designed to withstand water pressures equivalent to a depth of 50 meters, so you can take it with you in the rain, snow, and sunshine.

Heart Rate Measured at the Wrist
The Forerunner 235 is equipped with Elevate heart rate technology that measures your heart rate at the wrist, enabling you to run without a chest strap. A colorful gauge on the Forerunner display indicates your heart rate zone and beats per minute in real time.

On and Off the Road Running
A built-in accelerometer enables the Forerunner 235 to capture distance and pace data when you're running on an indoor track or treadmill, no separate foot pod accessory needed. When you're not running, the Forerunner 235 works as an activity tracker, counting your steps and calories burned throughout the day. It also reminds you to move after sitting for more than an hour. The Forerunner 235 is compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites to locate your position quickly and precisely whether you're running deep in the woods or near tall buildings.

I’m looking at purchasing one of these. What would you say your favorite aspects of it are? For those of you that have tried other activity trackers/smart watches how does this compare? For reference I am a skier and a hiker. In the summers I spend a lot of time in the backcountry far away from cell service and need my watch to still track my distance and elevation gain.

Is this a good watch for a beginner runner? I am torn between the Forerunner and the Apple Watch Series 4. I have never used a watch to run before, but am at a point where having one would be great! Pros and cons of the Forerunner?
