This or Fitbit Ionic? What does everyone think?

Definitely a Garmin if you're serious about fitness tracking such as running, however if you're a casual user just wanting to track steps and sleep then a Fitbit will be fine.

Cheers bud. Think the choice will go down to what I think looks better then as it will be the latter :). HH
Torn between this and the Forerunner 235 at £130. I'm just a runner, so don't need the other sport functionality, but the 735 does have slightly better features
Does anyone know if this does golf too?

I'm looking for a good running/golf watch for a decent price.

If you use Strava, get this. If it's just for day to day tracking get the Fitbit.

I end up running with two watches as I want to monitor my all-day activities which Fitbit does well, but also want detailed heart rate info on Strava which Fitbit does poorly :-/

Not just me that wears two watches then? Phew

As far as I can tell, the 735 has biking and swimming functions and that's the only difference. The 235 is running focused, that's what I use.

I think the 735 is also compatible with running dynamics functionality if you buy the HRM-Run or the RD pod, whereas the 235 isn’t

I've gone for the 735XT. After a bit of research on these sites:
dcrainmaker.com/pro…067
reddit.com/r/r…vs/
5krunning.com/gar…on/

The main reasons i went for the 735 is the battery life and the navigation features. I do a lot of trail running and am training for ultras so these are important features for me.

I haven't used any running watch before, but i would expect the look and feel and the data that they display to be very similar between the 235 and 735XT.

For an extra £30, I figured these features are probably worth it. I doubt I'd regret buying the 735 over the 235, but I may regret it the other way round.
I've got a vivoactive 3 which just feels like such a downgrade after being a forerunner 310xt and 920xt user. Would getting this to replace the vivoactive 3 be an upgrade or downgrade?
Great watch this. Swapped Apple Watch for this last time it was on offer and never looked back. Can’t imagine needing any other functions on a watch. Use for running and swimming regularly. Only thing for some would be no music.

I upgraded from the 35 and there is so much more functionality, plus it has swimming data. It can be used for triathlons too although I haven't tried that! Mine has been used for marathons and lots of training and off-road runs...I would recommend getting this, especially at this price!

I don't think it does, i may be wrong. The Vivoactive 3 has golf.
Is this watch better than the Garmin vivoactive 3 music watch?

I too am pretty much exclusively a runner but I went for the 735 xt last time it was on deal for £179 and very happy with it. The main thing for me over the 235 is the Strava Live segment support. I run mainly on my own and not particular good at pushing my pace up and tend to have regular pace that I stick to. However with my favourited Strava segments sync'd I get a prompt when 40m away from start of one when I'm out on a run and it motivates me to pick up the pace to try and beat my PR.

Although there's no maps in this watch (you have to opt for the 9xx series and few hundred quid more for that) the navigation/route features are super useful. I've used for several self guided trail runs and the turn by turn prompts are helpful to keep me on track. Also the Nav to start gives you compass bearing and distance to your start point which gives me a sense of condfience to explore more especially when I'm out running in new city or part of the world.

Another point vs other touch screen only running watches, this has proper buttons which for me are essetial when running as it affords quick access to change screen on which would be a PITA with sweaty hands.

Fantastic Saving, my Father was after the blue one. Lowest was £209.99 up until this. Thanks!
If you are looking for a Billy Bargain on a Garmin watch and want it feature packed, the Fenix 5 Plus is currently £379.99 on prime day deals. Awesome bit of kit!

The HRM strap is much faster and more accurate than the wrist based sensor and also enables the watch to record additional running metrics.

The increased accuracy is useful if you are running heart rate based intervals, which are great for increasing fitness.

I agree, I got the 735xt when it was last on deal at 169, I find the built in HRM isn't very sensitive during an exercise, it will show my heart rate go up & then just stay in the top zone which makes it think my exercises are super intense, but I don't get that with the strap, it picks up the small rate recoveries & gives me a much lower TE (training effect - Garmins measure of exercise intensity)

But might be worth selling the HR Run & getting a cheaper HR only device if you don't need the extra run dynamics stuff (I don't use it), to get the best of both worlds

For the strava live segment stuff, do you need to be a premium (paid) strava member to get that feature?

Yes. However th device should come with free 60day trial. If you value it then once that's done you just need the training add on rather than the full summit package which is couple of quid pm
