Product description Garmin Forerunner 230

GPS Running Watch with Smart Features
Tracks distance, pace, time, heart rate¹ and VO2 Max¹
Connected features²: automatic uploads to Garmin Connect™, live tracking, audio prompts, smart notifications and social media sharing
Activity tracking³ counts daily steps, distance, calories and sleep
Download data fields, watch faces, widgets and applications from Connect IQ™

Customise Your Watch and Your Training
No two runners are the same, and neither are their goals. Set yourself up to reach yours by downloading advanced workouts and training plans to your watch from Garmin Connect. You can even customise your data fields, and download watch faces, widgets and applications all for free at Connect IQ.

On and Off the Road Running
A built-in accelerometer captures distance and pace data when you’re running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. Once you’re done running, it doubles as an activity tracker³, counting your steps and calories throughout the day. It also reminds you to move after sitting for more than an hour. Forerunner 230 is compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites to locate your position quickly and precisely whether you’re running deep in the woods or near tall buildings.

Colourful graphic interface shows your heart rate zone and beats per minute¹ at a glance.

Its Simple. Full Stop.

Concise, easy-to-understand charts, graphs, maps and more let you view your activities, track progress toward goals and wirelessly upload and share relevant data directly with the online Garmin Connect network. So, you can compete with friends or family members on weekly step or running challenges — and compare your results in real time, using the LiveTrack feature. You can also use the app’s wireless connectivity links to receive current weather conditions, forecasts and smart notifications right on your compatible Garmin device.

Good value for the clock


Good price, good quality construction, good settings. The only downside I see is the screen quality. Without it had 5 stars.

/ Phenomenal price-quality, easy to use, lightweight and beautiful. My opinion is that it should be sold with chest strap.

Simple but has everthing you need


Although the FR230 has no optical HR monitor its still holds all of its big brothers (FR235) other ability´s. Its simple to you. intuitive. and its (in my opinion far better than a regular smart watch). You get everything you need from a smartwatch but a much better battery life. I would recommend buying but also consider getting a screen protector because the screen can easily scratch.
