Why should you buy the Garmin Forerunner 235 running watch
Many beginner runners struggle with one thing: keeping the correct pace during their runs. The result is fatigue early on the run and the struggle to run even short distances without feeling out of breath.
Running watches like the Garmin Forerunner 235 can help you find the correct pace by monitoring your heart rate and VO2 max, a.k.a. maximum oxygen uptake. This shows you how much oxygen can you utilise during your exercises.
By knowing these, and coupled with the advanced workout plans found in the Garmin Connect app, the Garmin Forerunner 235 can make you a more efficient runner. Simple as that.
This running watch also has built in GPS so you can leave your phone behind when you go on your runs. Given how big they are nowadays, they most usually don't fit in any pockets and running with a bag is really not necessary now is it.
