No...it’s has built in gps
How does it compare to the Ticwatch series?
This is a hot deal - great little watch - I purchased the Fenix 5 as I wanted a heavier watch that I could wear as an everyday watch - the wife has this loved it - paid more on amazon hot deal (shame it’s sports direct !)

Could try asking?
Hot deal, pity I’m not a runner! I’m going to get the Fitbit Versa as its more suited to my needs.
That’s a good price. Shame it’s from Sports Direct

Yeah, that's what I thought to. Was thinking Ticwatch personally. Or one of those Amazfit BIPs if I'm feeling low on £.
Very good running watch, well worth it, this it hot, if you do not run then it’s of no real use.
i would have had this had I not bought a vivoactive HR a couple of months ago, it’s a better watch than a forerunner 35 for a similar price

Seems to be alright for cycling as well

Yes, should have said if you don’t need GPS and heart rare monitoringthen is of no real use, my vivoactive HR is likely better for non running monitoring as it covers all sorts of activities, tbh the forerunner range would suit my running more than the vivoactive range.

The amazfit BIP is a very good watch for people who want GPS tracking and heart rate monitoring for under £50

Where do you get the BIP from though as it just seems to be Chinese sites?
I can confirm that is a great watch for running, especially when paired with the chest strap. Keep your expectations in check about the display, this is NOT a smartwatch, so it's relatively low res and unappealing, but very well readable under all conditions when out running and sweating.

Don't you rate the built in optical HR then? Just curious as I have the 230 and use a chest strap HR.
I have had this watch for almost 2 years. It's my only ever fitness watch so I can't compare it but it's been very good for me.
No major issues. So for £140 it's a good deal.

Wrist reading is perfectly fine when racing and for activity tracking. For cardio work in training I found the chest more reliable and consistent throughout the workouts.

Its not sold in the uk directly, see links mainly to gearbest, or ebay
Would this give you grid reference?

Just upload the file to map my run once your run is done.
No you don't need phone with you.

Here is a review at DC Rainmaker : dcrainmaker.com/201…tml
Can't see the watch on the website...
Expired?
Can anyone with this watch tell me whether if you use it with a chest strap, can the watch show you the heart rate measurement from the chest strap in real time?

Yes it can. HR strap takes precedent over the optical HR on Garmin watches.
Missed another Forerunner deal. I'm far too slow!

Brilliant, just what I hoped. Thanks a lot for taking the time to reply.
