The watch is very thorough with run statistics and provides flexibility. Syncs automatically with my smart phone every time.
I like the built in heart monitor, but for accurate heart rate the band has to be snug to your wrist. a little more snug than I like to wear my running watches.
I'm very happy with the watches performance overall.
This is the perfect all fitness watch! I mainly use it for the bike activity. I use this watch with the Garmin Varia radar and it works great. The radar flashes and makes a tone on the watch when a car is within range. The golf activity is great to use as well. The smart phone integration is much faster than the 235 & 735. Battery life is strong and the vibration notification is smooth and doesn't rattle when activated. Biketiresdirect has superior customer service and support with this watch.
I like the bike, golf & swim features pool and open water functionality. The Connect App helps keep track of daily, monthly goals. Very pleased with the purchase. Bike Tires direct is the best, free shipping plus $$ off this order for prior gold account purchases.
Does away with a chest strap for heart rate, which was the first reason I wanted it. But it does so much more, and perfectly. Buttons work great, unlike earlier Garmin watches. Love the 7-day plot of average resting heart rate, as well as the one button push for weather and probability of rain. Not as crazy heavy as a Fenix.
Bought this awesome watch after reading all the great reviews from Bikestiresdirect.com
I was not disappointed. Shipping was speedy and right out of the box you can use it. There was plenty of charge in it. Watch is very light, comfortable and gps is accurate. There are too many features to name but mainly use it to swimbikerun. Its the best triathlon watch in my opinion. So for all you Triathletes. Look no further just buy this watch.
Upgraded from the 910xt and am loving the functionality of this watch. Its relatively light and finds satellites faster than my old watch, the phone connectivity is cool, and its nice to have wrist heart rate instead of running with a chest strap.
very happy overall. haven't worn a watch in years and now do everyday, especially for smart watch notifications. tracks great. treadmill seems accurate. indoor pool is about 90-95% ACCURATE. at worst, it gives you more distance. outdoor run is on track with strava. have not been in open water yet. great battery life.
The 935 is a leap ahead of my 910xt with the wrist hr monitor and comfort. I do wonder if the hr is as accurate but the comfort trumps the slight differences. I do recommend this product for triathletes and runners as well as cyclists but do wonder how this stacks up to the Apple products. Still, I use the 935 for sports activities only not daily use.
This is a great purchase. It is helping me both on and off the bike. I bought this as an upgrade to the fitbit to track heart rate (on and off the bike) and sleep patterns. One of the best unexpected outcomes from the watch is that it sinks with my Garmin radar. While I knew this going into the purchase, it's great having my watch vibrate to tell me that a car is coming up from behind me. I just don't hear the 820 beep when it warns me of approaching cars.
On the negative side, it's integration with google maps is pure hockey-puck. Previous watches from other manufactures will tell you a couple of miles out what the next turn is, then warn you as you get closer. The Garmin starts to warn you two miles out, then every tenth of a mile. But all it tells you is that something going to happen. Not what direction, not what street, nothing. Just a .1 of a mile count down. Pure waste.
If I were a runner, this would be a must. I don't run anymore but great for swimming. HR function works fine wo a strap. Interface with Garmin Connect Outstanding for tracking activities.
Another outstanding Garmin product. Battery lasts about 3 wks.
The battery life on the Garmin 935 is everything it is hyped to be. I recently used mine for an adventure race of over 20 hours and it was still going strong. Size and performance have been great as well. Customer service cannot be beat. Highly recommended.
Purchased to upgrade my 920xt. This thing is light, looks good, and gives you all the training data you could ask for. Also looked at the Fenix 5 but glad I went with the 935 -reduced weight and bulk. Plus it costs less for all the same functionality. The watch still looks very good as any everyday wearer. I spent the extra $8 to buy a screen protector for this as I did read some post of the screen scratching.
I have had the Fenix 3hr, Forerunner 235, and Vivoactive Hr. This is simply the best watch I've used. Battery life is long and a lot of useful features and running metrics. Last year I biked a lot but this summer I've been mostly running ultras.
