Since it's not in the original post:
Garmin Forerunner 235
Same price at multiple other retailers.

This watch is at least 1, if not 2 generations old. Released 5 years ago anyway. With the other options out there, including from Garmin, I'm not sure I'd bother with this one.

235 vs 245 review (there is also a 245 version with build in music storage)

Thanks! What a great deal on a Forerunner 235. My old GPS decided to stop working this morning, so this is timely.

And, yeah, the Forerunner 245 is slightly thinner, slightly lighter, and can play music, but it is also costs $300. For less than half the price, I will "settle" for a 235.

I own a 235. It's great and reliable and I still use it.

But ...

The newer watches have a newer chipset and software to measure more health and running info.

Not even the 245 and 645 are fully up to date with the latest bio-info I think?

For people who want the cutting edge results, the unfortunately expensive fénix 6 and 945 are the thing.

I hope that the 2xx and 6xx watch lines will be updated as well. They're cheaper since they're less Ironman friendly and don't show mapped routes etc.

Someone did a great google spreadsheet showing exactly what watch does what.

I think the spreadsheet is here:

If you want a not-expensive running or fitness watch that's v reliable, the 235 is great.

Is this a good price? No idea. (I'm saving for one of the newer ones.)

I have been looking at Garmin to get more stats than fit bit offers and to be able go out without my phone. IMO the product line is little messed up. The 645 is a little older that the 245. 245 has an oxygen sensor like the 945 and Fenix 6's. I really want that or I would buy the 235 and be done.
