£200 still not bad but a bargain it aint...

edit: Deal edited - just realised topcashback (amount unclear - 2.3 - 6.9% on price less VAT) which brings it down a bit.

Has been this price at Milletts and Blacks for a while now, and their codes also dont cover Garmin so presumably they are all part of the same group? Waiting for it to drop a bit lower!

It was cheaper a while back but I think exchange rate fluctuations have pushed the price up :(.

The Forerunner 230 is also available with the Garmin soft strap heart rate monitor for £185.00. Identical watch to the 235 but doesn't have the optical HRM built in. Most reviews appear to indicate that the strap HRM provides a more accurate count. Especially if weight training as well.

Still waiting for it to come down further after xmas though. I think it was down to c. £150.00 all in for Black Friday but I missed it.

I don't think this was that low on BF - cheapest it's ever been is a few pence under £175 but the cost of this unit seems to have gone up over time rather than down. I can only presume that is an exchange rate thing :(.

Ok maybe I shouldn't be holding out for 150.00 then in the New Year sales. But it looks like it was £150.00 though back on 29th November in camel camel camel?

That was the older model - this is the 235

The 230 was released at the same time as the 235.

Fair enough, different model then.

purchased the 230 this week after reading and watching many reviews on the 230/235. I'm bloody happy with the watch and haven't found a fault or a issue yet.

Battery life is great, manged to get 5 days out of it before re charging it. Very accurate for when it comes to training. The apps and widget's are nice so at least you can make it look a big gucci if you want to.

If you purchase this watch you won't be disappointed at all. I'm not on my pc or I would of added a link to a Chao on YouTube who's maked some cracking videos, short but to the point on features the watch has and setting it up.

235 is touchscreen, 230 isn't. I got the 230 without HR strap for £167 at Amazon last year but then the price went up straight afterwards. Good watch, just thought touchscreen was a bit over the top for me.

I bought the 235 for my husband for Xmas. Paid £200 from Millets. Hope I made a good decision. Even though the straps are more accurate he is not of a fan of them so that was not the deciding factor. He runs a lot. Does Marathans so defiantly wanted something with a good GPS. So many on the market and I am a woman so my head was banging trying to decide. He had outgrowed his Fitbit hr so hopefully this is bigger and better.

​Definitely a good choice - probably the best all in one device going for runners at the moment, all things considered. You can pair this with a chest strap too, if you want the increased accuracy, but it's nice to just be able to put on shorts and a t-shirt and head out without faffing around with straps and phones and headphones and pedometers and gps trackers!

​The 235 is not touchscreen. Maybe you mean the 630?

Def not touch screen got it on now. Only difference between 230 & 235 is built in hrm on 235. Cheapest I've seen is 161.50 on millets 5 months ago when I got mine.

If this had barometric altimeter like Garmin 920XT it would be perfect. There is not a Garmin device that has all their features which is silly.
