The Garmin Forerunner 235 is Our Favorite Running Watch

The Garmin Forerunner 235 #CommissionsEarned has been our GPS and wrist-based heart-rate monitoring running watch of choice since the Garmin Forerunner hit the market.

Where it comes to deciding planned intensities within running workouts, we've long been a fan of heart-rate based training versus using only feel or pace.

It is that much more specific to the individual based on their target heart rate zones, determined by both age and resting heart rate (where most cardiovascular formulas call only for age as part of the formula).

What Our Garmin Forerunner Has Been Through

Thus far, we'd like to believe that we've put our Garmin Forerunner 235 to the test.

It has braved not just the usual running workouts, track days, and inclement weather. But, it has also seen a great many miles, enduring the mud, sand, water, and other elements present in obstacle course racing.

It has lasted us more than 3+ years, most heavily enduring the stresses of obstacle racing, where it's face, closures, and overall durability have been put to the test. Only once or twice can I recall having to do a sort of "master reset" when a certain button or function was unresponsive.

What About Heart Rate Accuracy

Without its having a chest strap to assist in positively influencing heart rate readings, we've been quite happy with the accuracy of the Garmin Forerunner 235 and its heart rate readings.

In the one or two times, during workouts, that we'd had doubts about what we were seeing in real-time, a quick master reset quickly fixed any issues of concern.

Through mud, dirt, sand, sweat, and water, we couldn't imagine a better first running watch.

If you're in the market, please do consider the Garmin Forerunner 235 #CommissionsEarned as your go-to running watch.
