Pretty near the lowest price it's ever been on Amazon (£159.99 in November last year).

Alternatively buy it from Halfords for the same price via Topcashback and bag just over £5 in cashback.

10% off the British Cycling members too, plus Quidco.

Just calculated if you're smart with this you'd be paying £134.

great watch but be wary design flaw (no bezel) which means way too easy to crack the screen.

i've got one & love it,to avoid the screen cracking i bought a couple of tempered glass protectors off ebay

My missus has had this watch since release day and loves it. We paid about £80 more than this I think.

mine broke even with tempered glass screen :-(
Garmin will swap it for a refurb (new except for the brains inside) for £100

£10 cheaper here if you want the regular size strap, or £8 if you want the x-large.

Free delivery but not next day.

Seems to be a lot of reviews suggesting the watch frequently malfunctions after 6-12 months..

Excellent watch I have one, although I got mine for £125

Had it, returned it for forerunner 235

Not for small wrists. Does a lot for the money and comparable to the TomTom Spark which is a lot cheaper of course. Garmin's app and website is better now though - the TomTom setup is awful.

Just out of interest how much did you get the Forerunner 235 for? What made you switch?

I couldn't justify the £100 odd difference personally.

Highly recommend this. After trying out fitbit surge (terrible and paid more than what some can for this now). As a person who does a lot of physical activities I prefer the Garmin approach.

Isn't the Garmin Approach for golf though?

I had mine two months and it broke. I've got a replacement one now but I'm reserving judgement. Lots of issues with software updates causing issues with functionality.

Had mine since Christmas, except for a light bleed on the bottom left corner, it has been great.
The only thing I dislike is the aggressive low battery warning vibration once it reaches 10%.
It's very annoying especially if one is driving or cycling.

Great watch in my opinion - I've had mine for over 12 months, the battery lasts approximately a week before it needs re-charging, which is pretty quick - circa 1 hour to fully recharge from flat which is why I went for this watch above others. A fantastic all round watch. I can personally report no problems/issues, hope that helps any potential buyers,
