I’m looking for a new watch to replace my Fitbit Blaze but I’m on a really tight budget. I just want a basic model, no whistles and bells needed. I’ve seen a Garmin Forerunner 35 for £90 . What’s everyone’s opinion?

I've just ordered a Garmin Forerunner 35 as an upgrade to my Forerunner 25 which I've had for a couple of years. The Forerunner 25 has been brilliant so I've no doubt the 35 will be the same, I think you're pretty safe buying a Garmin.
Fab thanks x where did you order from?
Amazon, it was £119, I wanted a black one, prices vary depending on the different colour it seems.
I have a Garmin Forerunner 35. I love it. I bought mine on an Amazon Prime sale for £80. You’ll also pick them up on eBay perhaps a little cheaper.
The Forerunner 35 is A great running watch. Does everything I need from a running watch, it’s accurate, and is a nice size. I wear mine 24/7.
Fab thanks 😊
Just checked, there is a brand new one on eBay for £45. You’ll pick them up second hand also for between £40 to £60. My last running watch was a Garmin Forerunner 15 which I bought on eBay second hand for £20. It came in the original box and was like new. And it worked perfectly.
Bugger I’ve ordered one off amazon it’s coming tomorrow
Ordered. The £90 one was a refurb so I got a new blue one 👍
Congratulations, you’ll love it. They are great. I wore mine on a rune this morning in torrential rain. The roads were like a river. The Forerunner 35 had no issues getting soaked. The App on the phone Garmin Connect is great too and the watch links wirelessly via Bluetooth so as to upload your runs. Enjoy.
If you use strava you can get the Garmin software to push the runs through to that as well.
You are tempting me too my friend!!
Go for it. You deserve a reward x
Bought one 🙈
We’re getting a bit of a club going 😂
I know...and it's ace! 😁😁
You've got it already? Did you go to a brick shop? How quaint
I bought my Garmin forerunner 35 last July and I love it. Easy to use , easy to pair with your phone when you install the garmin connect app. 👍👍
Love my garmin forerunner 35 and just recommended it to a friend. Happy running 🤗
I’m so pleased and excited that it’s coming tomorrow 😊👍
Well, what you all need is lovely family to club together and buy you a swanky rose gold Garmin watch with music and aftershokz headphones for your birthday! 😄🎁🥳
I’ve been using a 35 for 12 months... and it’s done everything that I needed it to... very reliable, great app for retrieving data, shares with Strava, Nike and others automatically. Highly recommended
I had a swanky Fitbit Ionic that died and I've replaced it with the Forerunner 35 (the blue one). I love it. It's simple and easy to use. I've been using it cycling to work too
Congratulations! I’ve looked at the YouTube video and am so tempted!
I use the NRC app for guided runs - does it sync with NRC?
I’ve got the 30 and I love it. Does everything I want it to
