Thread: Good activity watch

  1. #1

    Good activity watch

    Hi Iíve just sold my Apple Watch 3 as I thought it too much smartwatch and not enough activity watch and so I wondered if anyone has any suggestions as to which to get primarily for running (marathons etc. )
    Budget not fussed unless stupidly expensive.
    Thought Garmin Fenix 5 or FR935.
    Thanks

    Primarily for running the garmin forerunner series are market leading. Fenix you are paying for a lot of functionality you will probably never use

    Garmin all the way!

    I went through the same process.
    I am a Spinning instructor, Hike a lot, run, dive and bike.
    After trying Apple watch, I was smitten by a Garmin Fenix 5 and I recently upgraded to the Descent. Now I have a watch that does it all.
    I actually only wear this one lately. Battery life is super!

    My new 'all purpose beast':



    Have fun,

    Garmin Fenix 5 for me as well. I run, swim, MTB bike, road bike and hike. Covers all these and much more.

    Garmin Forerunner 645 Music is great, if you donít want to carry a separate music player. Doesnít have all the functionality of the Fenix 5 but if you do mainly running, it has all you need.

    And if you're not too worried about the music, the Forerunner 235 will cover your needs pretty well at a lower price point again. I use one for running, paddle boarding, windsurfing and cycling and it's been great. Feels very light on the wrist which is a big plus for me.
