An amazing multi-sport watch, the Garmin Forerunner 935 nz won’t let you down even if you wear it for days and days on end. Additionally, it’s a fantastic wristwatch and fitness tracker, with maybe the sole glaring missing of music compatibility. It’s a little heavy and pricey, but it’s worth the money if you’re serious about your fitness.
l Varied sports tracking
l Amazing battery life
- Excellent fitness information
- Excellent battery life
- Expensive compared to most
- It’s impossible to use Garmin Pay

You can’t beat a good training partner, and the Garmin Forerunner 935 claims to be the finest you can bring along.
The Forerunner 935 may be one of the best running watches because of its better tracking ability and long battery life.
Because it’s so pricey, though, is this a good choice for the casual fitness enthusiast, or is it reserved for those preparing for a triathlon of the Ironman calibre?
It cost 450 pounds when it was first released in the UK, or 569 pounds if you went for the “tri” bundle (which gives you the triathlon in-water heart rate monitor). The base package costs $500 / AU$700, while the fully-stocked tri-bundle costs $650 / AU$850 in the United States and Australia.
However, the device’s price hasn’t dropped significantly in the years since its first release, and you’ll have trouble finding discounts of more than $300 outside of special sales events unless you shop around.
With less tough glass and metal and more smooth rubber, the Fenix 5 is essentially a more “Forerunner” cover for Garmin’s extraordinarily powerful watch that can manage to track everything.
As a sophisticated model rather than a fashion statement, the metal buttons surrounding the display are its most noticeable feature.
This isn’t to suggest that the silicone strap is horrible – it’s a lovely choice that stretches well between the lugs to fit comfortably on the wrist. It’s a breeze to put this watch on, unlike some other brands, which use a ‘double band’ system that requires you to insert the strap into the watch itself.
Customers never had a problem with the Garmin watch falling off, even when hopping into and out of the water.
Garmin’s heart rate monitor is located on the Forerunner 935’s underside, and it sticks out just enough to be noticeable. Even though you’ll be left with a small depression when you remove the watch, it isn’t sharp. Compared to Garmin vivoactive 3 nz, the forerunner has shown a better battery life.
Although the Garmin Forerunner 935 does not have a touchscreen, the metal buttons on the outside are easy to identify and click without looking, which is an important feature when jumping in the water, riding a bike, or sprinting around tracks with this gadget.
It’s a little heavier than some other watches, but it’s far lighter than the Garmin Fenix 5X. It also barely registers on the wrist if you’re accustomed to running with one around.
