Found 2nd JanMade hot 21st Jan
One of the best triathlon watches.

Includes a built in heart rate monitor and the sapphire glass.

I was looking at the Garmin FR 235 or 735XT but this deal looks good.

The 15% code is not allowed to be added to sale items which is a shame.

The fenix 3 performer bundle for £290 looks a great price too.
Thanks op

It's also this price at Blacks and Millets and there is possible cash back through the usual websites.

Rumour is that the successor may well be announced at CES this month, so it might be worth hanging on for a few days to see what emerges. However, I wouldn't expect this (very good) price for the new watch for a great many months to come. Also, announcement is not the same as actual release.

FWIW I ordered from Millets on 27th December for £369 (with a further ~£16 top cash back to follow) and expect the watch to arrive tomorrow.

Shame that they don't allow codes to be used on Garmin products any more. I managed to get the Fenix 3 performer bundle from Blacks for around £240 before they changed their policy. I would love a Fenix 3 HR but I cant really justify yet another sports watch.

If you cant justify the price of the Fenix 3, or don't really need its navigational capability, then I can strongly the Forerunner 235 for about £200.

I have the fenix 3 HR and love it. I have a friend who works for Garmin and staff get a huge discount on them. Great watches and I use it all the time. Battery lasts at least 3-4 days between recharges for me. Would be more if I used the GPS less often.

​is it heavy? do you use it for HR?

I do not think it is heavy, and don't even notice it on my wrist. Previously I wore a Polar V800, before that, analogue steel watches with bracelet.

I bought mine for the 24 hour heart rate monitoring, as I like the convenience for checking resting pulse and during basic activities like walking. For training purposes I always use a chest strap.

At the moment all my training (bike) is indoors, so I don't use GPS right now, but it looks like battery life will be about two weeks or a little more with my current use pattern of 14 hours indoor training per week.

I don't care a stuff for step and stair counting, although it does those things, but for me, accurate calorie counting is very important. After one full week of parallel use with my V800 the total calories burned were within 0.8%, which is fantastically close. As I thought the V800 was accurate before I am very happy with that outcome.
