This heart-racing bargain saves you £135 on a Garmin running watch

Amazon has slashed the price of the Garmin Forerunner 235 for Black Friday – just another of our best Black Friday deals.

If you’re looking to take your running more seriously, or are already an avid runner, the Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS running watch is the perfect training companion.

Garmin makes some of our favourite running watches and the Forerunner 235 includes many of the same great functions. There’s a wrist-based heart rate monitor on the back for keeping tabs on your heart’s performance, and this is also used for VO2 Max estimations, which are a fantastic way to gauge your fitness.

The GPS will make for more accurate pace and distance tracking when outdoors, but as there’s also an accelerometer inside the watch you’ll also get similar metrics when running indoors or on a treadmill. Even when not on a run, the Forerunner 235 makes for a great activity and fitness tracker with move reminders to stop you being too sedentary. The watch is also water-resistant.

As the watch pairs with Garmin Connect on your phone, you can view all of this important data and historical performance from a convenient dashboard. The Forerunner 235 will even mirror your smartphone notifications, bringing some smartwatch functionality to your wrist.

You can expect 5 weeks of battery life when used as a fitness tracker or 16 hours when using the GPS, which is excellent.

You have a choice of two different colours, so you can pick one that suits your taste. At just £165, this is a substantial saving off the original £299.99 RRP.
