Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great GPS Watch for me! I purchased this watch about a month into training for my first marathon. It was great for tracking pace, distance, and times. Very easy to learn and use on my first run. I also thought the Garmin App was a neat way to further break down my runs. Battery life was perfect for. I'm looking forward to using for future training and races.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, great battery life. This may be a simpler watch than others but still does plenty and records a lot of data that you can see through the app. The screen is a modest one but it does the job, plus it allows for great battery life. I run 5 times a week, about 40 miles total and I only need to charge the watch once a week, probably would last a little bit longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again and again The battery life is amazing. The Garmin Connect dashboard is useful and easy to use. The watch is comfortable and beautiful. The GPS is accurate and quick. I have nothing bad to say about this watch and love everything about it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great activity watch Great activity watch with great battery time! I use it to track my daily commute to work (80min/day) as well as some running activities - I don't have to recharge for the whole week. Delivery took king of long to California (about a week).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GPS works great! GPS didn't skip a beat while running in Manhattan or in the rolling hills of Southeast Ohio.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, not stellar, running watch So far, I like this watch, though it has drawbacks. Positives: -Battery life: after the first full charge, the Garmin lasted about a week, and I had used it to track several runs/hikes throughout the week. -I have extremely thin wrists, and I was worried the watch would look huge--it doesn't. I love the aesthetics. -Although the watch's standard functions are limited (it really only tracks runs or "other"), you can download apps that allow you to track other activities (swimming, hiking, running, cycling) more thoroughly (and carefully). -The watch offers activity tracking, if you care about calorie count, you can get some sense of calories burned, though--as you'll see below--the watch doesn't do a great job of this. Negatives: -I'm not sure how accurate the Garmin tracker is for distance. I took my phone with me yesterday and used Strava to map my run alongside of the Garmin, and the Garmin clocked miles quicker--my Garmin said I ran 4.4 miles, while Strava tracked me at 4. -It's really easy to hit the start/stop button while running, especially if it's chilly or cold and you're wearing long sleeves. This was a major problem for me on one hike. My long-sleeve shirt kept hitting the button and only half of the hike got tracked. -If you're looking for simplicity, this is not the watch! I figured out the Garmin pretty easily because I'm relatively tech saavy, but this is not the easiest watch to learn how to use. The buttons aren't intuitive. -The calorie tracking is way off. I had a Charge HR before this, and it gave me a fairly accurate count (until it went haywire after 6 months). The count was within a narrow range of what Map My Run and treadmills would reflect on calories. -For a watch whose main feature is the ability to download apps, you can only download a few; the watch runs out of space quickly. So I could only download a fraction of the ones I wanted to. Overall, I'm happy with this watch, but want to save up for a better one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me I only use the watch to run. I don't use most of the features but it was exactly what I was looking for. Accurate mileage and not bulky. It has a lot more features but I just needed a simple easy to use watch for a good price and I am very happy with this.

Does the garmi. 230 work with a heart rate monitor chest band? If so, can you recommend which model

Asked by: Brian
Hiya, thanks for the question! Yes, the Garmin 230 is compatible with a chest strap heart monitor. You can find the strap here: Hope this helps!
