Not a good option for runners in training
Are you a runner looking to take training to the next level, but can't afford a really pricey device? Wondering why in the world you'd even need one? I was in your shoes! As an activity tracker, the Forerunner 35 is very nice. I give it 3 stars because many of the features that a runner would use do...

Garmin Watch Worth it?
It's definitely worth it if you want to track your runs and get a little bit more serious about running. I can recommend the Forerunner 35 and see how you get on with it.

Garmin Forerunner 35 Review
ConclusionsThe Garmin Forerunner 35 offers built-in GPS and heart rate monitoring in a waterproof design, long battery life, push notifications, and the option to control music from your phone.

About 12km in, part of the path was very unclear and overgrown. Checking the navigation track against the physical map I had made it a breeze to figure out which way the true path was. Without the watch, I would probably have turned back rather than risk getting lost alone in unknown mountains. Extra bit: trekking alone, and having the live tracking enabled, meant my family could have a look once in a while and know I was still on the move (some members on my family are fairly apprehensive, it's good not to have to send "I AM ALIVE" messages every half hour while on a trek).

Needed to write this review because I can't believe all the negative ones I read before buying this
Before I bought this watch, I researched for months many different running watches before I made my decision. I kept coming back to this watch, but was delaying due to the negative reviews. Let me tell you who this watch is/isn't for. Sidenote I've had an Apple Watch before and I absolutely hated it...

Garmin Watch Worth it?
It doesn’t really do anything strava doesn’t do, but it does do heart rate monitoring which makes it almost worth it just on that alone. But also I find bringing the phone to be annoying. Imo the expensive models aren’t worth it but the forerunner 35/45 can be very cost sensible and nice to have. I wouldn’t spend more than 100-150.

Garmin Forerunner 35 Review 2018 | Is it Worth it
Listen for my needs is the watch perfect? No, but based on for the lot of things that I've mentioned throughout this review, I think, because of the risk based heart rate, monitor the accurate GPS and the interval stuff for me is definitely worth it and if right now, if you're an Amazon, Prime member, the Watch is actually on sale for one eighty, eighty so you're gon na be able to save a couple more bucks on the watch, and so for that reason it makes the watch well worth it. So hopefully you found this review helpful. If you have please be sure to give me a like hit that subscribe button and I'll see you next time, Jordan, Thomas peace,

You can’t go wrong with a Garmin. I have the Fenix but the Forerunner is nice, too.

Awful Screen Quality
A couple of weeks ago, my screen started having issues. A tiny "mark" appeared in the middle of the screen. Hours later the mark became a line. Weeks later, a big fat mark won't allow me to read. Awful experience with Garmin, for a $200 watch, you would expect much more than a watch lasting 9 months...

InReach Mini 2 released
But the interface for them to keep tabs on me is really quite awful. I just logged on to the mapshare site and there are breadcrumbs still showing from December 12, 2021. To get my elderly parents to know that's a trail from two months ago and NOT my current trail is a bit of a chore. I really just want something like their LiveTrack feature with my Forerunner.
