Garmin Forerunner 235 deal is the cheapest we’ve ever seen

We get a lot of requests from runners asking which ‘basic’ watch to get - and while you can spend less, the Garming Forerunner 235 is always a popular choice.

So when this powerful, lower-end watch gets its cheapest price ever, it’s very much worth taking note. Down from £220 on most parts of the internet, today you can get the Forerunner 235 for just £175.

That money nets you a large screen, long-lasting battery, the ability to track both running and cycling and - most importantly for many - an inbuilt heart rate monitor.

But that’s not all - with both GPS and GLONASS on board, you’ll have a more accurate and swift connection to the satellites for less waiting around when starting your run, and the inbuilt accelerometer tracks steps and sleep too.

The heart rate monitor can give you your VO2 Max score too, where it measures how much oxygen is moving around the body to assess your overall fitness - and it’ll keep an eye on your resting heart rate, which is another key metric for fitness and great to know when you’re training for a race.

Sure, this stuff is available on loads of watches, but we’re seriously impressed by this price and it’s well worth checking out and throwing a few more quid at if you’re looking to get a decent running watch for less.
