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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for distance runners who are just starting off. Easy to use. Straightforward design. I really like the phone notification capability. Battery life is good, I don't wear it around all day though. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, easy-to-use watch, documentation a bit lacking. If you're looking for a GPS watch to track your running, this is the one. I run ~12-15 miles a week and race once in a while. I use this watch exclusively to monitor my my runs, so I don't wear it as a regular watch or track my steps throughout the day. I did a lot of research and Garmin is really THE brand for this space, and this particular watch is a fantastic balance between performance and price. I never have problems acquiring a GPS signal, I just go outside and it's ready. The watch is light and comfortable, the buttons are easy to press, and the screen is very clear, even under a bright sun. I have it paired with my iPhone so I can control the music, hear audio alerts, and sync my data. It's also really great to see incoming texts and calls on the watch so I can quickly decide if I need to stop and respond or wait until later. The iPhone app is actually quite good, which is a big surprise since most big companies get this part wrong. I haven't played with it beyond the default functionality. You can access a whole marketplace of these to extend the watch's features and appearance, but to me this is a waste of time. My gripes are actually mostly about the owner's manual. It tells you how to get started with the major features but it's missing A LOT of information. Some of the terminology is also a bit confusing and inconsistent. For example, the manual tells you how to read new notifications, but not how to do it while you're in the middle of an activity. I had to scour the web to learn how to access several features, but luckily this info is easily searchable in Garmin's forums and YouTube. Overall, the price is definitely fair for this watch. My wife owns the previous model and has been using it for a few years now without a hitch, so I know it'll last. I highly recommend it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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: http://www.moosejaw.com/moosejaw/shop/product_Garmin-Soft-Strap-Premium-Heart-Rate-Monitor_10246710_10208_10000001_-1_ Hope this helps!
