The black/red version is marginally cheaper at £199.98.

Gutted I missed the Black Friday deal but still a good price!
199.98 if you get the black/red one
Good watch and a fair price. Has been lower in the past (£185 on amazon a few weeks ago) and will no doubt drop again if you are willing to wait
If you are a runner then this is a great buy. I picked up the 230 (non HR) model a few months ago and the difference from the old Forerunners is amazing. Battery life is good as well (at least without HR on all the time).

I agree that this is a good watch but this is not a hot price for it. Amazon routinely have offers for it (the lowest I have seen was £159). Blacks/Milletts also have regular offers for it.
I bought this for my Girlfriend at Xmas and she has had no end of problems with the app not syncing.

I've lost count of the number of times we have deleted the app, deleted the watch, repaired, unpaired.

Lots of problems on the official forum.

In it's current state I wouldn't recommend it.

Price is probably fair at £200, but agree I’d personally wait and try to get it cheaper if I was buying. It was released in 2015 and new models are being released fairly regularly
I have one of these and it is excellent.

I'd only recommend it if you are seriously into running (and maybe cycling but you'll probably have 520/820 already for the bike if you are).

The HRM is I think not great, my resting HR is supposedly 44 which I think is a little low. For HR training I'd definitely buy the chest strap.

I enjoy the fact it is Bluetooth and all automatically updates with Garmin and then Strava. But the cheaper ones do that. (edit: someone above bemoaning it not connecting but mine connects everytime I come into range of my phone and posts the run automatically)

Loads of metrics and screens you can flick through and fully customisable.
Top tip though, buy a screen protector for it, the face scratches easily.
