Garmin’s new Forerunner 35 watch packs a lot of features into fitness watch


Garmin’s been on fire the last few months with several new product announcements. In May they announced the Vívomove fitness tracking watch, then a few weeks ago it was the fēnix Chronos watches, and just a couple days ago it was the VIRB Ultra 30 action cam. If you thought they were done, you’d be wrong because now they are introducing the Forerunner 35 watch that has a built in GPS, continuous wrist-based heart rate monitor and notifications from your smartphone. The Forerunner 35 tracks all your daily activity including steps, calories, distance, sleep and intensity minutes. It even vibrates when you’ve been inactive for too long. The Forerunner 35 comes in four colors and is priced at $199.99. You can find more info at and pre-order through Amazon which shows it will be available in 1-2 months.

    I’m sure it’s a great watch, but the Garmin website is awful and support non-existent. I can’t wait until my Garmin watch dies and I’ve got an excuse to buy a product from a different manufacturer.
