Cheapest you'll find anywhere, 10% off. You can also get the non-music version for £224. Someone posted a similar deal for the same store recently, but their code had expired so I found a new one.

This does GPS, music and heart strap without requiring your phone. I'll be replacing my fitbit Ionic with it!

Good price for an excellent watch.

Code works on other Garmin watches too but their starting prices are generally the RRP so they are still too expensive. However, since this model is still so new, most other UK retailers haven't discounted the 245 yet.

If you are adventurous, you can get cheaper from the likes of eGlobal but those of us of a nervous disposition are probably best to stick with this lot.

They're mainly for running, but they do support strength training, indoor rowing and whatnot.
Is this better than the other fenix 5 offer?

Depends on what you want to do. Big advantage of this is it can play music. The Fenix 5 can't.
The Forerunner is a lot simpler, mostly just a running watch. But the Fenix may be better for other sports or navigation.
Also the Forerunner is a lot slimmer and lighter weight, nicer as an everyday watch.

The fenix is previous generation
The only downside is that it does not support Garmin Pay.

Not really, all the components are a different gen. Look at the battery life to give you an example

Agreed, the fenix 5 is older with older components but it is also a fundamentally different watch. That is the real difference. The look is totally different. The materials are totally different and the functionality is totally different.

Comparing battery life, they are actually pretty similar. ie about 24 hours with GPS. The Fenix 5 has a much bigger, higher capacity battery, but the 245 has a newer more efficient GPS chipset. Though will depend on what other features you are using, ie heart rate, sensors, Bluetooth etc anyway.
With GPS and music, the 245 battery only lasts 6 hours.
Thanks OP, I pulled the trigger on this, the Fenix 5 is just too bulky and in-your-face for someone of my fitness level.

I think most people would find this the better choice. I love my Fenix 5 but, if I didn't have one, the 245 would be my choice although I do covet the 945.
Never used start fitness are they okay?

Yes, A1. I’ve used them for years, never a single issue

Got my 245 from them a few weeks ago. Certainly no complaints about Start Fitness.
Just received mine, no problems
Thanks OP. I used the code to get the new Forerunner 45 model for £152.91 delivered which is still £169.99 at other places like Amazon

Never ordered from them, people on these forums have, some say good, some say bad! bit like every online retail outlet though!
I ordered the start fitness one last week and the eglobal one yesterday, when I pick up both I will compare and send the start fitness one back.

A friend ordered the 235 from eglobal only a few months ago, no complaints.

Carbon copy of the UK watch, first of many orders I will place with eglobal I am certain.
