Blue only
The strap is interesting, but unsure how much use. The heart rate seems more accurate and the l/r bias helps tell me when I'm over compensating (although I normally only notice after injury!) but otherwise its more of a geeky toy in my opinion unless you're very serious.

That said I always wear it!
Beat me to it! Thought it was a good deal
Good deal. HRM strap is Around £50 by itself. Bought the strap recently very good. Lots of useful data like ground contact time and balance

The watch also supports courses. If you go to the Garmin app you can choose a location, plot a route automatically based on distance and then choose which direction or random and it will create a map which you can send to the device.

Nice.
Have you tried creating course in the Garmin app?
Go to training, then course and you can generate ones based on distance etc and direction around wherever you want to start.
Then send to watch.
I would like to know how the direction interface works for following routes if you have.
Thanks.

I've not tried yet, I knew they could do routes but yet to use them. I don't have this particular watch, I got the 645 music at Christmas when it was £199 and picked up a brand new hrm off ebay for £35. I'm injured at the moment so not running but I'll try and test the route feature out.

Nice.
I bought the Garmin Forerunner 35 on the Curry's deal the other day, brand new for £51.
Sadly it doesn't support the sending of created courses to the watch, but I knew that before I bought it.
very hot for me as 735xt alone is £234.99 (save 21%) @ Wiggle

Blue is still available, not sure why someone has amended the deal to add that the product is no longer available.
How does this compare to the vivoactive 4? I've done a quick Google and some people suggest the 735xt is old in comparison and unlikely to receive product support for much longer.

I would look at reviews and what you want from a fitness watch.
I think the Vivoactive 4 is the better fitness tracker and all round smart watch, whilst the 735XT is focused more on being a serious Triathlon watch.
For most people, the Vivoactive would be the better choice for an everyday fitness tracker smartwatch watch, with more useful functions. Newer, better looking, still has plenty of fitness tracking capabilities, coaching and metrics. More smartwatch features.

Thanks for this, really appreciate it

No worries. The review of the 735XT is from 2016, the Vivoactive 4 from 2020, so much newer like you said in your earlier comment.
The DC Rainmaker guy usually has videos on YouTube where he takes you through all the menu options and gives a feel of how they operate which is really helpful with so many variations on watches.
Thanks Dan, I've just found one of his helpful videos that's convinced me the VA4 is the better option.

Great stuff. It's good to get the opinion of someone like that who has a lot of experience puts the watches through their paces in sporting use. A lot of the review sites from Tech related sites seem to be coming from a totally different perspective.
