Cheapest deal for the watch alone.

A few deals coming through for this watch recently. See the Wiggle deal for the blue strap with HRM monitor.

This watch has previously been lower at Amazon in 2019. Still a very good deal.

This is primarily a watch for triathlons or multi sports. See in-depth review here: dcrainmaker.com/201…tml

I'm undecided between this and the Forerunner 245 for a little extra but newer, any views?

What’s a cardio chest strap? Is that different to a chest heart rate strap? Just trying to figure out what can’t be connected to the 245.

Unfortunately the previous comment wasn’t entirely accurate. The 245 is compatible with a wide range of Ant+ & Bluetooth accessories such as a chest heart rate strap (what was described as a cardio chest strap for some reason). However the sensor in the 245 is pretty advanced so unless you are a serious athlete then the HR sensor in the 245 is more than enough.

Thought so. Never had an issue with BT or Ant+ on mine so wondered was @titaneohead was trying to say as it didn’t seem particularly helpful advice.

It depends what you require. If you are doing a triathlon/open water swimming then the 735 is probably the best option. However the 245 has a wider range of the latest metrics & will also do pool swimming (the HR sensor even works in the water now). I’ve got a 935, the bigger brother to the 735, but I have advised most of my friends/family that the 245 is the go to watch unless specifically planning on a triathlon.
My bad, just realised we are talking about the 245, not the 235 . You guys are absolutly right
Comparison between a few Garmin watches around a similar price point.

Very capable watch and great for triathlons. Not as many of the fancy new features but crucially is has open water swimming. Can't find that on many other Garmin watches.

Worth noting that the 245 doesn’t have an altimeter, so won’t show floors climbed/elevation, which is the biggest draw back for me!
Plus has the Strava live segments feature I believe for those who like chasing Strava KOMs
Have had one of these for 18months. Excellent watch, battery still lasts about a week - I tend to do 4-5 runs/gym sessions a week.

Only thing is I would get a screen protector as my first 735xt had a cracked screen. Not covered under warranty.
